The quality of toilet paper or lack of it.

The quality of toilet paper or lack of it.

I have a cold at the moment and I found myself in the bathroom putting towels away when I realised I needed to blow my nose. So rather than get a tissue from the bedside I got 4 sheets of toilet paper (Andrex with Aloe Vera and Chamomile) and folded them in half. When blowing my nose I blew two holes right through the paper and you can guess the rest.

Now that’s in effect 4 ply but the sheets disintegrated with a single blow, to say I was disappointed would be an understatement. So I guess Andrex like others these days have dumbed down the quality in favour of profit.

You can't beat Izal. But as the comedian said, "there's no tread on it" when you come to put it to its primary purpose.

This is a bit of a bum topic.

@Strat - Some say it can't be done, but I'd bet you any money you could polish a turd with Izal!

@shutter 

The problen is 'Juan Shete' is never enough after have you have had one.

Two minimum and then folded, and on some days repeat as necessary. No wonder we all keeping running out, and no wonder the likes of Aldi now sell them in mega jumbo sized packs of 60 or more. 

Where's a copy of the Daily Mail when you need it eh, where?

Re: The quality of toilet paper or lack of it.

@Minivanman  I was referring to @Anonymous  implication that toilet paper quality is not so good as advertised... but Juan Shete is better... because you can use it wet, and wring it out.... ! ! ..

Also... "juan shete" is about 4 times the size of a normal toilet roll, (probably that includes Aldi versions ! ! !! ) . therefore you could save oundles of money by "quartering" juan shete,  to use, and afterwards, wash it and wring it out...( save even more ! ! ! )...Shocked

I'd never use Kitchen Roll to clean my nose with kind of goes against the grain for me and washing it out is just sick. If it were linen or cotton yes, but kitchen roll Shocked

It's also very good for playing tunes on a comb with. You just have to get the angle of attack right to get some nice buzzing noises from it.

Preferably unused/unhandled sheets. Azn
