Best loo roll

Pros

We have tried every brand and this is the only one we buy. It could be $20 a packet and I’d still buy it. It’s strong but soft and absorbent.

Cons

No downsides

Recommend it?

Yes, I recommend this product.

Excellent product

Pros

I've used it for years, it's soft, does the job well, can't understand the bad rating.

Cons

Expensive

Recommend it?

Yes, I recommend this product.

Keenex rated ecologically much higher previously.

Pros

I use the long rolls and have done so for many years.
I only buy on special.
I have a Biocycle septic system and it always rates highly every six months when the required inspection is done so I have no idea why or how there was no 'disintegration' at all. We have never had an issue. EVER.

Cons

None whatsoever the best loo roll... hands down!

Recommend it?

Yes, I recommend this product.

Best toilet paper I've used

Pros

Soft, no penetration, long rolls, less lint than others, can use less paper per "wipe"

Cons

More expensive than others, very disappointed that Consumer does not recommend!

Recommend it?

Yes, I recommend this product.

Cons

Used 6 months or more

soft to the bottom; harsh to the environment

Pros

Every thing the previous reviewers said is true. It's soft, puncture resistant, long rolls last. Choice magazine in Australia rated it their best buy in April 2017; I'm guessing they didn't consider environmental factors. Let's hope the Kleenex company can do much better on that front without sacrificing the positive aspects.

Cons

Appalling environmental impact.

NB: Consumer puts my wife's name besides mine below. Please ignore that as the above opinions are mine and mine only...

Recommend it?

Maybe, it depends on what you're after.

Peter & Patricia

No penetration
Less 'lint'

Cons

expensive

My Favourite

Pros

It is the softest and the long rolls mean I don't have to change them as often.

Cons

None

Recommend it?

Yes, I recommend this product.

Steve

Used 1 month or less

A long time favourite

Pros

It’s strong but soft and I like the double length rolls. It’s ridiculous that Consumer state 0% disintegration, that has to be an error.

Cons

It can be more pricey, but I wait for a special in store.

Recommend it?

Yes, I recommend this product.
