Quilted Northern Ultra Plush® Toilet Paper, 6 Mega Rolls = 24 Regular Rolls, 3-ply Bath Tissue
About this deal
To test for dry lint, we used a textured object and applied a swiping pressure to a rolled bunch of 25 sheets. The wet lint test was the same except we began by spraying the toilet paper with equal amounts of water. We awarded scores by visual inspection of the damage. Sheet transparency (fiber density) Before toilet paper, each great society had their own method of wiping in the loo. In some places, only the rich could afford the luxury of using soft materials like wool, lace or hemp. For others, using one’s hand to wipe was not unusual. When and where you lived determined the types of materials available for this dirty duty (pun intended!).

Toilet papers look nearly indistinguishable from one another. That long roll of perforated white sheets wrapped around a cardboard core hasn’t changed much since the fifties, when colored toilet papers were all the rage. Give them a closer look and feel and subtle differences come to light. Give them a wipe and the differences become even clearer. Each company has a signature design or texture, not only for aesthetics but for function as well. Charmin – Ultra Strong came in second in our tester surveys, only a few points ahead of Quilted Northern. In our lab tests, it scored the highest average of both wet and dry lint tests, one of the most desired characteristics according to our testers. This continues the trend of our testers preferring strength over softness.New pulp paper is commonly called “virgin” paper since it comes from brand new lumber. For toilet paper, the blend is typically 70% hardwood and 30% softwood. Softwoods like Southern Pine and Douglas Fir have longer fibers that provide more strength while the shorter fibers of hardwoods like Gum, Maple and Oak provide softness. This is an important distinction from regular toilet paper, which uses a much more toxic and environmentally damaging chemical: chloride dioxide. After this processing, the rest of the procedure is the same as regular toilet paper. Recycled paper

We split our testing into two main components: Lab Tests and User Test Surveys. Lab tests consist of objective measurements and grading to test for physical quality of each brand. Our surveyors took the rolls into real life testing, collecting a swath of subjective scores from our panel. Lab tests Cottonelle takes the crown, narrowly beating runner-ups Quilted Northern and Charmin – Ultra Strong when we combined both lab tests and user surveys. Cottonelle – Ultra ComfortCare tied with Quilted Northern Ultra Plush in multiple categories like wet strength, absorption, dry lint and width, but user surveys pushed the final score over the top. Even though Quilted Northern beat Cottonelle in the lab tests, the lead in our user surveys tipped the scales in Cottonelle’s favor.Sustainability : Recycled paper is the most sustainable option for toilet paper, but you can also opt for bamboo rolls. These types of toilet paper didn’t perform as well as most premium brands in our evaluations for properties like softness, durability and absorbency, but they tend to dissolve easily and are better for the environment overall than standard toilet paper. In terms of strength, it was only second to Cottonelle and Quilted Northern (both tied for first). It was also the second most opaque roll just behind Quilted Northern, indicating dense fiber construction.
