Designer clothes are one thing but some people will only use the Top Brands of household items. Personally I don’t care where I buy my groceries or toiletries as long as I get value for money and flavour accordingly for foodstuffs.
I’ve done posts on loo paper insomuch as sheets per roll, emblems, puppies and patterns.
In the cottage, we had to stick with the original Andrex loo rolls as they didn’t block the shallow drainpipes leading to our cess pit. Recycled, cushioned, coloured and triple ply paper never seemed to disintegrate fully and we had to invest in a set of drain rods.
MSM was on main line sewage, but even she got blockages because of the angle of her waste pipes in both her upstairs bathroom and downstairs cloakroom.
But here’s the thing……………….
The recent pack of Andrex I purchased has the brand name embossed on every sheet.
I’m not talking puppies here, which take up more room and thus you get less sheets per roll anyway, but when looking on the package, sure enough the number of sheets has been reduced again and now you only get 200 per roll instead of the 220 or so of not so long ago, all because the manufacturers think our bums can read. It explains why we seem to be getting through more loo roll, when we’re not, ahem, ‘going’ a lot.
So, I have exited the ranks of Top Brand toilet tissue, and opted for a good quality ‘Shops Own’ equivalent that averages 210 sheets per roll and got twelve rolls for four pounds compared to nine rolls of less quantity for four pounds fifty.
In fact, 8 out of 10 customers prefer it!
