The goal of this study was to determine which properties affect the disintegration time of toilet paper. The disintegration time was measured by performing spin tests on fourteen papers from both France and the United States. The fiber density, turbidity, and roughness of each paper were analyzed, and their relationship with disintegration time was studied. It was concluded that a toilet paper with a high fiber density and smooth surface should have the fastest disintegration time.
