Customer rating: 4.6 out of 5 stars

Customer review: "Lovely toilet roll. I like ordering this pack as I hate buying toilet roll in the shops - it's bulky and awkward to carry not to mention extortionate! This offers a solution to my problems and I have consistently bought this for over a year now and will never turn back."

Who Gives A Crap Premium 100% Bamboo Toilet PaperWho Gives A Crap

Feel: Who Gives A Crap makes a bold statement by claiming to be the softest loo roll ever, and compares using these rolls to wiping with clouds. We're inclined to agree.

Strength: Not only are they soft, but they're also made from bamboo, so they're pretty strong.

Customer rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Customer review: "The most impressive thing is how long the roll is lasting compared to other brands I've used."

Best quality toilet roll

Andrex Toilet Roll - Supreme Quilted Toilet Paperamazon
Price: $99.99

Feel: Another toilet paper from the Andrex family that's all about comfort. Each of the 54 rolls is made from plush layers of tissues for deep, quilted softness.

Strength: Each toilet roll is four-ply, which means you should only need three to four sheets per wipe.

Customer rating: 4.7 out of 5 stars

Customer review: "I stopped buying branded toilet rolls some years ago. I thought the major brands were expensive and found two supermarket own brand rolls were significantly cheaper and just as good. However, in recent months, the own brand rolls seem to be smaller and of poorer quality. The price has increased, so I decided to try Andrex again. I bought them on daily deal offer, so they were very competitively priced."The paper is soft, strong and absorbent. It flushes away easily and disintegrates quickly; I'm not on mains sewage so it's important that anything going as waste into the septic tank breaks down quickly. Very pleased and I'll be sticking to these in future. "own-brand

Best soft toilet roll

Feel: Did you know that every roll of Cushelle is made with micro air pockets? Well, now you know the secret to how it gets its paper so soft.

Customer rating: 4.7 out of 5 stars

Customer review: "Very soft and thick toilet paper. Tears well and lasts for a long time."

Best toilet roll for those with allergies

Feel: Bamboo looks so coarse, but this tissue is silky soft and will feel great on your skin. You get 45 rolls in this pack, so it is a pricier option.

Strength: It doesn't break up in your hand like other paper, which is perfect for the wipe.

Customer rating: 4.6 out of 5 stars

Customer review: "Bought these as I have problems with itching. I am allergic to other toilet paper. These are great and so far no itching."

Best toilet roll for value

Feel: So, basically, this feels like most other toilet rolls. It's super soft and does the job.

Strength: Not only is this paper absorbent, but you can wipe with confidence.

Customer rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

Customer review: "Really surprised by these! Everything about these rolls screams thin, cheap, recycled toilet paper but when you use them, it's a shock to the system! I actually needed less than supermarket own brands options as it's so thick. Really soft too. Work out a bit more expensive even when you buy in bulk but not much of an issue."

Can toilet paper cause irritation?

Yes, toilet paper can cause irritation. If you're suffering from a reaction we'd recommend speaking to your doctor. You may find out that you're allergic to toilet paper dyes, fragrances or additives.

If this is the case, don't worry, because according to Dr. Victor Marchione, "Pruritus (itching of the skin) is a common problem that many people experience at some point in their lives."

Dr. Marchione then goes on to explain, "Unscented, thinner, cheaper and more greyish looking toilet papers are less likely to contain additives, so look for these if you find that you have skin irritation after using toilet paper." Yikes...

Want to know more about toilet paper than what to buy? We've pulled together some helpful FAQs to help answer some burning questions that you might have.

Can toilet paper be recycled?

According to Eco Sustainable Solutions, "A lot of tissue paper is made from already recycled paper. This...means that it can't be recycled again, the fibres are too short and will result in poor pulp in the recycling process. "

Can toilet paper go out of date?

As long as toilet paper is stored in the right condition and isn't damaged, it can last for a very long time. However, if the toilet paper gets wet, it will then become unusable. Such a relief, right?

Which toilet paper is safe for septic systems?

Going for a glamping holiday with your pals? You might need to take some loo roll with you that's safe for septic systems. You'll know that toilet paper can be used in a septic system if it is listed as septic system safe or biodegradable.
