Springforce Toilet Tissue
I feel a strong urge to share the excitement of my usual household toilet paper purchase which must be something that the rest of the world has been waiting for in great anticipation.
Every single one of my children and step children as they have left home to go away to university always took a big pack of toilet rolls with them after the first term away. They all couldn't believe how expensive it was to buy. It doesn't seem to have made them any more economical with its use at home and we have now had all of them back home to live at various times over the last few years and once back home and Mum is once again buying then somehow the cost factor seems to be forgotten.
The boys are the worst and when they moved out into a shared house together with another friend they were all so mean about toilet paper buying that they planned their daily needs around going while they were at work or out somewhere as they often had no loo roll at all in the house and all refused to buy it! I began to take a roll with me when visiting as I hate not having any and them they got quite excited about me leaving it behind!
I used to always buy Tesco value toilet rolls and while they serve the purpose and no one complained I did find that the rolls were smaller and finally they are now not really that much cheaper so I may as well have a slightly bigger roll and better quality for the tiny amount extra.
I buy these regularly now and I have found they last quite well per roll use; by this I mean that I don't have to rush around changing empty rolls too often with these. My husband is quite well trained and can manage to change an empty roll and put a new full one on the holder. Now this may seem an easy task but despite their university education and the fact that they are now adults this task seems to be too difficult for my son and step son. Despite the fact that the holder in the bathroom they use is a slide on hook sort of holder this is still too hard. This particular toilet tissue hasn't changed that at all, they find both expensive and cheap rolls equally tricky.
The size of roll is larger than the value rolls but as huge as the quilted expensive brands. This is not a bad thing as recently I bought some of the branded ones and the rolls would not fit in my stainless steel storage containers beside the toilets. They would only go on the stick type storage thing I have in the spare room ensuite . As a result that storage stick holds those and I had to buy my Spring force ones for the other bathrooms. So in short these particular ones fit in my storage holders while others do not so another plus for this brand.
What do I use this for?
Well apart from the obvious use for wiping bums, which is a task it does very well as it is not too crisp or too hard I use toilet paper for a multitude of other uses which I shall share with you.
Wiping bums; this works well as it is not stiff nor is it too hard but it also has sufficient strength not to fall apart when being used in this way.
Blowing noses, I am far to mean to buy tissues and I hate the boxes around the place so we all use toilet paper for nose blowing. I have to say that this works fine and then we flush it down the loo hence getting rid of the germs too. Tissue full of germs lying around in open bins must be a great way to share germs so this way we flush our germs away. I will admit that this is not that soft for this job but it isn't that bad. When you have a cold your nose gets sore anyway so it is just something we put up with.
Removing makeup; first I put makeup remover on my face then wipe it off with this toilet tissue and flush it away when done so no waste yet again.
Cleaning the toilet; rather than using a cloth to wipe any part of the toilet I use bleach neat on the toilet then wipe it away using toilet tissue and this works fine with it breaking up and then of course I flush it down the toilet. I cannot imagine using a cloth for the toilet cleaning as I would have to throw it away after use anyway and that is not very eco friendly.
Cleaning up the incontinent cat.; either our elderly feline is incontinent or just punishing me for going away or not producing her food on time. Our ancient beast is fed in the downstairs loo so that she can enjoy the pouches of food which the other younger cats do not get. If I shut her in there she pees on the floor deliberately. I then use neat bleach and lots of this toilet tissue to clean up her efforts meanwhile cursing her and her annoying habit.
Wiping faces; this with a little water works almost as well as a wet wipe when my granddaughter gets her face messy when eating and this can then be flushed down the toilet hence saving filling the bin full of wet wipes which do not biodegrade.
Wiping the mirror in the bathroom; when I am cleaning the bathroom mirror I use glass cleaner and toilet tissue. Sometimes when the mirror is all misted up I use toilet tissue to wipe the dampness off and then pop it in the toilet. Again there is no waste then and toilet paper bio degrades so I feel it is more eco friendly.
Tap polishing; again these are the stainless steel taps in the bathrooms which I give a light spray and them dry and polish with dry toilet paper which brings them up a treat!
I think I have now exhausted all my uses for this toilet paper..In short this does all I require from it without breaking up before it should. It is a decent price at £1.99 for 9 rolls which works out at just over 20p a roll which is pretty reasonable in my opinion.
Thanks for humouring me and reading this. All in all these are good quality very reasonable priced toilet rolls. This review may be posted on other sites under my same user name.
Summary: A good quality reasonably priced toilet tissue
