    Toilet paper

    You will find the proper paper breaks down much faster in the toilet cassette. Some of the cheap supermarket home brand seems to break down just as quickly.

    Strangely enough the Toilet paper is no dearer than supermarkets!

    Blue Diamond £1-16 a pack of two and Fiamma £3-50p for a pack of 6 rolls

    Express Review on Izal Medicated Strong Toilet Paper
    by jon - written on 19/06/09
    Rating: [​IMG] I have used Izal all my life and would never from choice use any other. One of the main advantages is its strength. So many brands have little strength if the paper is even slightly wet, with the result that one's fingers penetrate the sheet and become contaminated with faeces. This fact combined with less than perfect hand-washing may well be the cause of some outbreaks of food poisoning.
    The lavatories in our home have two toilet roll holders to cater for visitors for whom Izal is not their first choice.

    IZAL stinks & I seem to remember that paper cuts were a distinct possibility :BigGrin:
    Takes me back to freezing cold outside loos at my Grand Parents, using torn up newspaper because the IZAL was too expensive !:RollEyes::BigGrin:

    Either should go down well as rest-room stationery as our American cousins know it, but never be misled by so called wet-and-dry. That does little for your comfort.

    i'm convinced IZAL is non-degradable and has a half life the same as plutinium:RollEyes::Laughing:

    Don't see what's wrong with newspaper cut into convenient squares :RollEyes: in fact it's all most newspapers are good for :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    We just use the same type of stuff as we use at home, as somebody is the designated loo emptier I can't see any difference in any of the normal types of toilet roll they all break down easily (not that I make a great point of examining the contents but you have to look to avoid spillages.) :Blush:

    I believe that the choice of paper type is more important in the American type of loo when you use a macerator as it finds it easier to 'mash & pump' if it is not the strong imbossed type.
    We use the cheapest Tesco paper and it works for us.
    Wet-wipes are definatly a no-no, they will not disolve!!:cry::Doh:

    We used to have the 'proper' stuff but it was expensive and not very user friendly being that it used to start to disintegrate at the thought of you using it for it's intended purpose!:Eek!:

    We now use whatever we've got at home. If you want to use something that breaks down a bit quicker though, some of the economy ranges are better than the 'softer' type of stuff. I would suggest avoiding the 'aloe vera' treated toilet roll - it's horrible stuff! The only good use I've found for this is when I had a rotten cold and the aloe vera stopped my nose getting sore from all the nose blowing!!!

    I think abroad you have to be a bit more careful on which type of toilet tissue you use at some of the campsites.
