I seem to have an opinion on everything, and toilet paper has not escaped my gaze. This is mainly because I hate toilet paper that's too billowy and thick and clogs my toilet. I hate toilet paper that has dancing flowers all over it. I hate toilet paper that feels like parchment and tears as it leaves the roll. What do I like? My top toilet paper is the Cottonelle (above) which has nice pin stripes and is perfectly in the middle of my road with regard to all the other issues. It's a great choice, but, over the years, there are others I have liked a lot too, as well as one that is winning the reviews...
- White Cloud 3-Ply Ultra Bathroom Tissue - $1.25 Per Roll
The huge winner in reviews by Consumer Reports, Good Housekeeping and The Sweet Home, White Cloud is a upstart brand that is sold at Amazon and Walmart. As Kevin Purdy of The Sweet Home confessed, "When it comes to performance, the major testing houses’ assessments matched our own hands-on impressions: White Cloud is soft to the touch without feeling decadent; it doesn’t break in use, yet consistently and quickly dissolves in water; it’s easy to tear off your desired amount; and has the “grip” you need."
- Scott 1000 Bathroom Tissue - $.77 Per Roll
I grew up with Scott and still love it for it's spartan performance, affordability and super long lasting presence. It's not my first choice these days, but I will always have a soft spot for it. It's my value go to choice.
My ECO choice. While most toilet paper companies have gotten a lot better in the environmental department, I believe that Seventh Generation is the best. They just really care about this approach to living, and their toilet paper is excellent despite all the green hoops they have jumped through to make it. Not the most comfortable, not the cheapest and not the most attractive, it is, nevertheless, the greenest and it works.
