This one is our favorite…bring your own Charmin! That way you’ll have the soft cushiony comforts of home with you at the office and you’ll carry that pride of clean feeling all day long… and we know for certain it’s better than the 1-ply they’re rolling in the stalls!

3. Sneak to another floor

Communal pooping isn’t for everyone. Get a little privacy from your coworkers by heading a few levels up so you can poop in peace.

4. Potty Talk

It’s safe to say we’re VERY comfortable talking poop at Charmin HQ. The more we talk about it the more we normalize it. So up the potty talk around your colleagues and beat the taboo around the loo.

5. Skip the stink

Bodily functions and smells tend to go hand in hand. It’s only natural. BUTT you can invest in a discreet air freshener to help cover up your business so you can get back to business.

6. Ease the experience

So you’re not clogged up before jumping on a call, try a soothing peppermint tea. It’s great for relaxing your bowels and helping with smooth moves.
