Toilet Roll recommendations

My understanding is that this is true for most wipes because they contain plastic, but if you get ones like the Andrew moist wipes that are 100% cotton then those are safe to flush because they will disintegrate.

Some wet wipes claim they are “Fine to Flush” standard, but this certification scheme was withdrawn last month

Water UK is now running a Bin the Wipe campaign.

Perfectly aware. But I still use them.

Everyday is a school day!

Although for cleaning ones self they are very good though… A conundrum…

You can “make your own” wet wipes by adding a dab of Wype to toilet paper for a final clean:

Safe and flushable.

I’m getting up close and personal to people on the internet way more than I thought I ever would :jack_eyes:

I just buy whatever. Can’t say I’ve ever put any more thought into it than that.

Sainsbury’s Super Soft Double Rolls.

£2.57 for a pack of four.

I like the look of this. Thanks for sharing.

Andrex isn’t basic, it’s very expensive! Whenever I’ve seen it, the price is about 70p-90p a roll!

I have Aldi own brand 6 rolls for £2.19 that claim to be 12 roll equivalent and have also had 10 packs of 9 rolls bought off TikTok shop for £20 which was slightly thicker but the rolls are not as long so possily a false economy!

I actually meant basic in the sense it’s a fairly normal brand and nothing special about it.

That being said I find cheaper brands less comfortable and thinner so you use more. And given the regularity of use and, ahem, the area of use, 70p a roll is perfectly acceptable to me.

I get 24 rolls of the supreme quilted one (far from basic, it’s their most expensive roll) for about a tenner on Amazon. Or 41p a roll.

So imagine the basic Andrex one could be had for much cheaper than that.

Those are about 59p a roll at Morrisons now so that’s not too bad in my mind. There’s a point where I’m happy to spend to keep my butt happy.

I am happy to spend on toilet roll - I keep seeing adverts for cheap shitty “4 ply” roll on tiktok, that smells of lemons, so annoying

The smelly rolls I always find to be a bit crap. Same with the ones that have lotions/balms on them. Basically see no difference compared to a good quality “normal” roll…

This is our go to toilet roll:


We fell for the “fine to flush” marketing on the wipes and ended up having to unblock my drain after a few years. Now they are put in the bin wrapped in a single sheet of toilet paper.

Always go for this, or Andrex is next best.

Carlo, it’s quite the other way around, I assure you.

Each to their own. I use a lot of roll so know my preference :joy:
