Q.1064: What makes toilet paper soft?

Ans. During the paper drying process, the paper sheet is adhered to a large highly polished steel cylinder known as Yankee Cylinder or Mono Glazed (MG) Cylinder to dry and is then scraped (or “creped” off) by a metal blade. “Creping” imparts flexibility and stretch into the sheet, while lowering the strength and density, resulting in soft tissue products.
