Andrex Toilet Tissue
Advantages: Thick, soft and absorbent
Disadvantages: More expensive (but worth it)
As I have found out over the years buying cheap toilet paper is a false economy. Not only does it not feel as nice to use but it also ends up getting used a lot quicker because it is so thin you need much more of it to do the same job that a couple of sheets of decent toilet paper does.
Andrex is always a brand that I look out for when it is on offer. You can now but it with different added extras such as shea butter etc. but for me the original is still the best. As soon as you open the bag and put one on the holder you can immediately see just how good the quality of it is. The classic white ones also just look really nice in the bathroom.
The roll is so much thicker and bouncier looking than the cheap ones and you can just feel the difference in quality when you touch the paper in your hands. The toilet paper is two ply and these two sheets stick together almost as one and hardly ever do they separate or come loose.
The two ply paper is so absorbent that you really only need to use a few sheaf's at a time whereas with the cheap ones you can end up having to use loads. It also feels really nice to use and doesn't scratch or feel horrible.
As they are so absorbent they are also great for using as tissue when you have colds and can even be used instead of kitchen rolls when you have run out to mop up spills.
As you can imagine Andrex isn't the cheapest toilet paper by a mile but it is still good value as you really do need to use less so it actually ends up lasting a lot longer than some would. You can buy a pack of four classic white original rolls for around about £2 but they are also quite often on offer which is the time to be stocking up on them.
For me I would have to award these toilet rolls 5 out of 5 as they really are one of the nicest toilet rolls to use with the best absorbency and just feel so much nicer than cheap ones and it is one of the areas where I try not to scrimp too much.
Summary: A more luxurious toilet roll
