Am I the only person who gets pissed off at the stupid question threads that get posted here, or is this a forum for those lacking intelligence?

It would be quilton, sorbent, and Kleenex, in that order.

It's called off topic for a reason, have fun and lighten up ☺

So far I haven't found a brand that doesn't end up covered in sh-t

Off-topic is ok for random stuff IMO

This thread is a bummer.

However asking questions on a Forum? How silly is that. Forums aren't for questions and seeking answers.

Trying to respond seriously, you are a marketers wet dream because products like toilet paper are literally the same item with a brand slapped on top. Yes there are features that attempt to differentiate it e.g. 3 ply vs 2 ply or add a dog mascot to appeal the children, or Eco ones that appeal to tree huggers but you'd never find one that claims to clean better over another because they work via the same mechanism. And no one would make a toilet roll that 'doesn't work' or sh*t...as they won't be in business for long

So in reality it doesn't matter unless you have an emotional response on one brand over another. And if that is the case, the marketing selling has worked its evil on you

While we are investigating toilet paper, why in the name of granny outhouse do they need to glue the frigging start of the roll? It is a practice that started a couple of years back and one destroys a good percentage of the roll before one can get started on the job at hand. It is a conspiracy I say.

Prefer the good old Asian water cleaning method of a toilet hose and just a couple toilet tissue squares to dry off, far more hygienic. Been using this method for 20 years.

In reality it is easy to show that many toilet papers are very different and these differences affect their function and usefulness. I do agree that there are multiple brands out of the same factory, rebranded products, and many products that are only differentiated in minor ways but the difference between the best and the worst toilet papers is dramatic. Also, many people like the marketing, e.g. I consider the scenting of paper to be a waste of time, many people will buy nothing else.

As to toilet paper that "doesn't work", there is a lot of "tissue"-thin toilet paper that falls apart easily but people buy it because it is cheap.

We buy toilet paper that doesn't rip easily and comes in large rolls so we don't have to change them as often - seven adults in the house literally rip through them - e.g. Purex mega rolls.

Nothing quite like junkmail.

Although I do prefer the paper type of mail as the plasticy glossy mail is not very efficient
