Loo roll quality

Anyone else noticed a change in Andrex Classic Clean?. The quality is less likely to flush reliably.

    Hate Andrex.  Love Lidl.

    fyi  - Andrex was mentioned by a plumbing company when our drains clogged.  nasty.

  • I only buy Tesco's 3 ply now, ( coconut fragrance 😂 ) because the other brands are inferior quality, noticed this over the last 12 months.
    It's definitely a thing.

    Yes, I did some time ago.
    I now get a more satisfying result by cutting copies of The Guardian into rectangles and impaling them on a nail.

    Having lived with Izal as a boy anything is an improvement - not sure how anyone ever thought that shiny, non absorbant stuff would do anything more than smear stuff around completely baffles me ...

    I tend to stock up on Cushelle at Costco, but the Kirkland stuff isn't bad either.
    There is a move amongst the greener of society to go to rags and a bucket...

    Still use Andrex. Still love it. I thought the quality had fallen and it does seem quite thin now but that's better for flushing, right?

    Never ever had any trouble with Andrex in over 35 years of using . . . and flushing.

    Should that be movement?
    A man walked into a car showroom.
    He said to the salesman, “My wife would like to talk to you about the Volkswagen Golf in the showroom window.”
    Salesman said, “We haven't got a Volkswagen Golf in the showroom window.”
    The man replied, “You have now mate".

    Ooer matey, you might get yourself cancelled for that remark! Personally I thought it most definitely warranted the loud guffaw I let out when I read it :smiley:
