How much toilet paper and paper towels do you and your family use in a week?  A new inventor said his product can help cut that amount down, saving you paper, a lot of money and helping the environment. 

It's called the Control-n-Roll. But you ask, Danielle, Does it Work?

If you're a parent or a pet parent…you've probably seen a lot of toilet paper on the bathroom floor.

But the maker of a new product says…take control of your roll with Control-n-Roll, a gadget designed to save a family of four up to at least two hundred dollars a year by cutting down on wasted paper.

According to the commercial, "Control-n-Roll acts as a break, and stops the roll immediately when you stop pulling, so you tear off the only the amount you want."

But you ask, Danielle Does it Work?

 Becky Motes buys the big bargain toilet paper packs and goes through them in about three weeks...but would love to save even more.

"The least amount would save a good amount of cash, so it seems smart for me," says Becky.

 The directions made the Control-n-Roll seem easy to use.

Motes took the product out of the bag, and the toilet paper off the bar.

She tried pulling the foam pieces apart to figure out which size would fit best on the bar since it is designed to fit all dispensers.

The first try didn't quite work. It was too small. But the largest size fit perfectly.

So Motes slid it on, to the middle of the bar.

Next she put the provided rubber washer on the end of the bar to make sure it would catch when it turns.

She slid the toilet paper roll back on and was ready to roll.

Motes tried pulling toilet paper slowly first and didn't notice much of a difference. But she says she used to never be able to tear with just one hand.

"It would spin and spin have a mess to the floor," Motes said. With the Control-n-Roll though, there wasn't a mess.

"Normally I would put my hand on there so I know it wouldn't spin," she adds.

It worked again and again, enough for Motes to say she wants it.

"Kids, not all, but most, use a lot, and some play, so that would actually come in handy. I'm going to buy one, I honestly like it."

And she says she thinks this inventor came up with a great idea. 

"You actually save your toilet paper, you save money because you don't buy as much toilet paper, and it's just genius," says Becky.

So it seems the Control-n-Roll, rocks as well.

The Control-n-Roll will run you $9 with shipping and it is reusable.
