One of the products that consumers use the most in their day to day is the toilet paperand the choice of it is not easy in the supermarket, due to the large number of brands that exist and, within them, also the types of rolls of paper that we can find.
And it is that we not only have some rolls of toilet paper certain brands in particular and even the private label ones, but also the two-layer ones, the compact two-layer ones, the three-layer ones and even the four-layer ones, and there are many differences between them, not only in their composition, but also also in the price.
For this, the OCU wants to help us choose the best toilet paper on the market, for which they have taken into account the number of services of each of the rolls, the length of the roll, its weight and the prices.
They have created the following infographic, in which they reveal the length of the roll, the amount of paper per roll, the price per 100 g or the price per roll, and the types of toilet paper rolls they have analysed: those with two compact layers, two layers, three layers and four layers.
Well, in short, the double roll of two layers is the cheapest one also taking into account its quality, and on top of that it is the best seller.
The organization comments that the compact two-layer rolls are the longest, the ones with the greatest amount of paper and the greatest number of services.
They also comment that three- and four-ply toilet paper is of better quality, although somewhat more expensive. Thus, if you don’t mind paying a little more, you should go for the three-ply and four-ply toilet paper because of its higher absorbency, softness, and feel.
This is the best toilet paper, and it is private label
If you want to have names, the best roll of toilet paper, the one that prevails, according to the OCU, is the Auchan three layers Supreme by Alcampo.
They comment that it is of excellent quality, resistant and with good absorption capacity, and it is also appreciated for its softness and touch.
They also give two more names, one has Mercadona and the other Aldi.
Mercadona’s is the Bosque Verde double roll toilet paper while Aldi’s is the Esselt two-ply compact toilet paper. In both cases, the package of 12 rolls costs about five euros.
The organization comments that if you want to save you should opt for large formats. They explain that doubling the number of rolls from 6 to 12 or from 12 to 24 saves an average of 0.02 cents per roll, so overall, you save €0.50 on a pack of 24 units.
In this way, when you pass by your supermarket favourite, you already have a little clearer which brand of toilet paper to buy taking into account the quality and price.
