(Newser) – A German physicist is engineering toilet paper that he says is more efficient  and softer than the familiar white roll. TP visionary Siegfried Hustedt claims a single ply of his new paper—which can "hold its shape longer under pressure"—will be sturdy enough to do the job, not to mention healthier and more ecofriendly.
