Nicky Elite Toilet Tissue
Advantages: Cheap and cheerful toilet roll!
Disadvantages: It doesn't really contain fragrance
When it comes to buying toilet tissue I am a big fan of Andrex so thats what I used to always buy. I like the quality of it and feel that its worth the money cos I prior to investing in a couple of rolls one day I was using really cheap shops own stuff but after using Andrex I felt it was really false economy. However my mum spotted my Andrex toilet rolls in my bathroom and told me that although she liked it she felt she was using better and to try Nicky toilet tissue next time I was out buying toilet rolls so the next time I was in Farmfoods I picked a pack of 9 rolls of it and I paid something like £2.49 for them which I though was too good to be true to be honest seeming as for Andrex I was paying that for just 2 rolls!
My 9 rolls came in a see through plastic and green coloured bag and on the front of the bag I am clearly told that they are Nicky 'Elite' '3 ply Quilted', 9 Rolls With Lotion And Fragrance and then on the back of the bag other information listed includes being told a bit about the product, that they are made from 100% virgin pulp, that the average roll length is 20m -Average total area 19.8m and the contact details for the manufacturer are given. Nice enough packaging this is and its informtive as it needs to be to!
The Toilet Roll Itself
This toilet roll comes in a range of colours including white (the pack I bought), peach, pink and blue and no matter the colour they are all the same in fragrance and so on.
In appearance well it looks like a bog standard (pardon the pun) toilet roll. Its a nice big size with a brown cardboard centre and looks larger in its size than say Andrex. The sheets are large and with indentations on them in diamond shapes to give them a quilted appearance however the sheets are not that thick really but they are soft, smooth and 3 ply and the sheets are easily pulled apart with the perforated lines.
I really like this toilet roll. It offers great value for money, is soft on my skin though I would quibble it is scented and contains lotion I can't smell or feel it though the tissue is soft enough of course. Its highly absorbent meaning I don't have to use too much of it and it flushes easily too. All round this is a fantastic buy and I really do think its great and so will happily convert to this and save myself money in the process!
Google if interested I have seen this in my local Poundland store, Tesco and I bought mine in Farmfoods and its available in different sized packs as well!
Summary: A good toilet roll!
