They're a natural antiseptic, biodegradeable, and leaves you feeling so minty fresh.

Gets get this back on topic.. The type of toilet paper doesn't really matter. Correct installation (ie over) is all that's really important in this world.

those are full of chemicals that harm the environment. The eucalyptus leaves are all natural.

They leave you feeling like you stuck a wad of vicks vapour rub up your ass, which is surprisingly refreshing

fizzychicken: in primary school we had some kind of thing that was half way between tracing paper and baking paper, its only function was to smear your business up your crack and back, some seriously evil person thought that up..


Sheesh, I remember those - 6" squares that were 80 grit on one side, and teflon coated on the other. Were the favoured choice in public toilets. Smear or sand, it was hobsons choice. Great for levelling off the 'roids though ...




My thoughts are no longer my own and is probably representative of our media-controlled government

Demeter: 
Trust me, the female requirements for loo paper are vastly higher than a male's, by several orders of magnitude. Just... seriously, don't ask. There's no way to get around the TMI thing.


I understand the many of the situations both necessary and seemingly wasteful in which tissue paper is used by the female of the species. The one that continues to befuddle me the most is when I witness her take a sheet of TP in her hand and then do the 'soccer substitution' or 'basketball travelling' gesture resulting in nine wraps around her hand...that's 18 sheets when used for the intended action...and then the action is repeated at least 3 times before the flush. What manner of demon bodily waste is she producing that could go through 3x18 layers of 3-ply in one 'sitting'? If she is bleeding something that can soak through that amount TP I may need to consider what manner of beast i am sharing my home with. I don't even care about the cost, either financially or ecologically, I just don't understand the reasoning.

Yes, reminds me of an old joke about why you should never trust women...!

DarthKermit: The cheapest one. My arse doesn't care.


Like some others have noted. If you were to have the ill fate of getting the brown "paper bag" type teflon/sandpaper toilet paper, you and your arse might soon change your mind.

They are actually sold in the grocery stores in Norway, have not seen anything like it here. (Not that I am missing it, not at all).

As I stated earlier the good old Asian toilet hose. It would be at least a cheaper and ore hygienic option.

Reminds me of the horrible sort of shiny brown paper they used to have in the loos at school, back in the day. DIspensed in sheets from a square dispenser, rather than on a roll, from memory.

We jused to joke that it was John Wayne brand paper - because it was rough, it was tough, and it wouldn't take sh*t off anyone.

Yeah - and you can accidentally soak your clothes too, which is always fun....

If my better half leaves less than 3 sheets on the roll, I put the new one "under" just to annoy her.
