the only toilet paper to use
that's all I buy now. It's lovely.
Toilet roll is one of only a few products where the cost really is directly proportional to how good it is.
If I go into someone else's toilet and see that they use cheap toilet roll, I instantly think less of them.
and they had the cheap stuff. It's an absolute mare when it's a new roll and you try and tear off the perforated bit so you can actually use it. Gyppo bog roll fraggles.
But it's hayfever season so I need something which doesn't feel as if it could be used to remove barnacles from rusty old ships
the dust from the paper gets up your nose and makes it worse
if you take a big stash to put in your pocket because you've run out of tissues, it doesn't matter how big the stash is you never get more than 3 blows from it before it disintegrates.
but tissues are ludicrously overpriced.
Especially if you get 2 sheets, don't separate them, and fold them over so they're twice as strong.
The really top shelf stuff usually has pictures of women smiling and hugging their pets on the packaging right?
That's on the same level of disconnect as those tins of ground up chicken where they have a cartoon of a smiling hen giving the thumbs up on the outside - of a tin containing its ground up flesh.
that's why he's happy
other than the total budget stuff, but have rarely used any of the top notch lot. Useful post.
It's about the same as a 9 pack of Andrex and really good too. Unfortunately Tesco refuse to make a similar pack. When supermarkets don't copy each other so it doesn't matter which you go to that irritates me.
it's just not right
in every way
along with a hilarious towel which has 'arse' and 'face' written on it so that you don't get shit on you when drying after a shower or bath. Why you'd have shit on you after having a bath or shower I don't know but apparently some people do (NEW THREAD ALERT)
See also cheap bacon.
Actually, false economies are probably worth of a thread themselves.
but it is normally the moody goods that are false economies
end up blocking your toilet because they're just too absorbant? I'm sure I read that somewhere.
I use Tesco's stuff. Not the cheap stuff, but the one that's yellow. She chooses the colour. She got a bit funny once when I bought the blue one instead of the yellow. I'm not that fussed. It does the job.
otherwise they wouldnt be allowed to sell it as bog role as its not fit to do the job
It isn't very good and I've got 6 damn rolls to get through.
2. Wrap up your entire house
and, looking at your answers, I still think that is the most fun he's going to get out of them
the desired wiping feel of 4 sheets of 4-ply folded into a single 16-ply sheet using 2-ply or worse 1-ply bog roll. that's not arsewiping, it's origami
Do you gradually stand up as you're wiping?
Why am I asking this?
I have a new found love for that andrex moist tissues, you never know clean until you've tried them.
Put on some silly plastic-grilled glasses and you're well in there.
thanks! Kanye speaks the truth.
