Tesco Luxury Soft Toilet Tissue
Advantages: Soft, strong, decent price
In our house we have tried to cut the toilet roll bills, I have a husband with crohns disease and a four year old who is currently having bowel problems so unfortunately toilet roll is one thing we use a lot of. After trying the Tesco value and Spring force toilet rolls I decided to try their own luxury brand as unless there are offers on it is cheaper than the branded toilet rolls.
The product is available from Tesco as the name would suggest and is available in a 4 roll pack for £1.95, a 9 roll pack for £3.99 and an 18 roll pack for £7.99, I find it strange that it isn't better value to buy the big pack but that suits me as I don't have anywhere to put 18 rolls at a time. A binus recently has been that if you buy 2 x 9 roll packs you were given a voucher for 5p off every litre of petrol which made it even better value.
The toilets rolls are packaged in a pale lilac plastic wrapper sealed at either end just like most packs of toilet roll are, the top corner is see through allowing you to see the white toilet rolls inside and at the bottom of the packet there are pictures of clouds floating by indicating these are as soft as clouds I would think. On the front of the packet you have the brand and the name of the product in a dark blue print and the claim that it is as strong and long as the leading brand. On the back of the packet you are given a little more information about this claim "In regular consumer trials, the majority of customers rate Luxury Soft as soft as or softer than Andrex. Independent laboratory testing confirms a typical sheet of Luxury Soft is as strong or stronger than a typical sheet of Andrex"
Inside the packet you are greeted with the toilet rolls stacked on top of each other and then side by side, on picking up a toilet roll it feels very soft and you can give it a squeeze and it comes back out into shape making it feel nice and bouncy rather than just flat and harsh like some toilet rolls. The toilet roll inside is of standard size and so fits on standard toilet roll holders and after the initial fight to start to unravel the toilet roll as it is stuck down like any other it unrolls well and it is easy to rip off the required amount.
I have found that if there have been spillages in the bathroom then the toilet roll manages to mop them up without using too much as it is very absorbent and I would say it is as soft as Andrex just like the packaging claims. I personally like the toilet roll from Andrex with the puppies on the roll and think that is the very best but as that doesn't come on offer very often I buy this or branded rolls that are on good offers basically whichever works out cheapest. Neither my husband or daughter who go to the toilet a lot have complained about this toilet roll so it gets 5 stars from our house.
Summary: Really good rival for the branded rolls
