Tesco Value Toilet Tissue
Advantages: cheap, pack lasts a long time, environmently friendly!
Disadvantages: The sheets are on the thin side.
Within the last 2 years i have been on maternity leave, bought a new house, and suffered from the 'Resiscion'! With my partner working full time, and myself only being able to work part time..YES..money has been tight!
I tried to save some money by cutting down my weekly spending on 'food shopping'. I did this by trading down some items to Basic Value Products.
Whilst some value products were not up to scratch, others definitely were!
One being their Tecso Value Toilet Tissue costing £1.39 for 12 rolls!
The packaging is very basic!
The rolls are packed in a clear film packaging with a red strip around the middle stating 'Toliet Roll'. It also displays three Tesco Value logos!
On the front of the pack there is a little logo of a Tree and the letters FSC. Above this logo there is a reassuring statement "Helping you protect the world's forests"
The back of the pack contains information on the toilet rolls size.
It displays the following environmental information:
"The trademark of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) gaurantees that the wood used to make this product comes from forests which are well manager according to strict environmental, social and economic standards".
It also has a warning sign to keep the packaging away from babies and children, Along with the Tesco 'Promise' and the Barcode.
The Toilet Roll:
12 rolls x 2 ply tissue
Average 200 sheets per roll
Minimum roll length 22.8m
My experience of the Toilet Roll:
With 3 adults (my brother lives with us) and 2 young children in my household, we do tend to get through a vast amount of toilet roll!
My eldest son tended to 'waste' a lot during his toilet training (and still does now).
My youngest (not yet toilet trained) likes to play games unrolling the toilet roll every now and then.
The toilet roll is rather thin, and i admit that we do get through the individual rolls quite fast (about a day and a half). However, i know that each pack will last us at least 12 days, so we never 'runout' of toilet roll (by then we would have been shopping and stocked up again).
The toilet roll is also soft enough to do the job that needs to be done!
The individual rolls may not last as long as 'better quality rolls' - But the overall pack will last much longer and only costs £1.39!
I am very pleased with the quality of Tesco Value Toilet Roll. It saves me money, i don't have to worry about 'running out' every other day, and is just fine for my family.
It is also nice to know that i am doing my bit for the environment by purchasing this particular pack.
Summary: Good value for money. The pack takes at least 12 days to get through at my house!
