You know, I never thought I'd be writing a review on toilet paper....doesn't everyone know what it is?? :)
Seriously, it is dubbed as Ultra Soft, and it is indeed soft. In use, we found it to be pretty much lint free, absorbant and very strong. I usually use Puffs Plus for my nose when I have a cold, but I thought I'd try this toilet paper (as I happen to have a cold right now) and I don't have a red, irritated nose from using it, so my hat's off to Charmin.
Personally, I love this toilet paper and would give it 5 stars. However, I had to knock a star off for a couple of reasons:
1. My wife was complaining of blockages in the toilet attributed to this new paper. I don't think there's anything wrong with the paper. I think it's actually a case of being a victim of its own success - they WANT it to be strong and absorbant. However, some people *coughs*my kids*coughs* don't know how to adapt to different types of paper and don't seem to be able to reduce the amount used for a thicker type of paper. So again, I don't think there's something wrong with the paper, but I do think that those with small children might run into problems using it (and my kids aren't even small!)
2. My wife started getting a rash from using it. Again, this may not be a problem with the paper but a sensitivity of her own to this paper. However, I have to recognize while writing this review, that there may be other sensitive people out there. So if you know you're sensitive, you may want to try some out before buying a boatload of the paper!
Again, personally, I think it's excellent toilet paper and do not hesitate to recommend it.
