Today is a good day. Why? After nearly a year, my favorite type of toilet paper is finally back in stock at Amazon.
I’m really picky about the type of toilet paper I use, and with good reason. A few years ago, I was actually injured by scratchy toilet paper and had to see a doctor over it.
At the time, my husband thought he would save some money and brought home a cheap variety that was made of who-knows-what. After a few uses, I developed puffiness and a burning sensation down there that got so bad I had to seek medical attention. I didn’t know at the time that toilet paper could actually injure you, but…it did. And it wasn’t fun. It turned out that the cheap TP had given me “micro-cuts” down there, which were causing my symptoms. My doctor recommended that I stop using the scratchy toilet paper immediately, temporarily use a cream and invest in better bathroom tissue going forward.
So now I buy the fluffiest stuff I can find, even though it’s not always the cheapest. I like to save money though, so when I first noticed that Amazon has a best-selling brand of inexpensive toilet paper that people rave about in the reviews, I decided it was worth a look.
It’s called Presto, and it has more than 67,000 reviews with an average rating of 4.6 out of five stars—kind of amazing for toilet paper. It’s also a great deal— regularly priced at just $22 for a 24-pack of “mega rolls,” which is equivalent to 96 regular rolls.
This is hands-down my favorite toilet paper. It’s soft and fluffy like more well-known brands, but much cheaper. Plus, the rolls are bigger and denser, yet it doesn’t clog the toilet.
During the pandemic, I made do with whatever I could find—but it just wasn't as good. And now it's back!
When you check out the reviews, you can see that other people are obsessed with this toilet paper, too. Keep scrolling to find out why.
One five-star reviewer wrote: “I pee about a million times a day and need sensitive toilet paper that lasts a long time and is cost-effective. I was intrigued to find out Amazon now had its own variety of toilet paper and I can say after giving it a try for two months, I am extremely impressed. I typically purchase Angel Soft, Charmin Ultra Soft, or Cottonelle...Amazon Presto has it all. One of these rolls lasts me at least two days and the material is super soft and absorbent.”
“My butt has never felt better,” says another satisfied shopper. “Think Charmin commercial with the bears rubbing the TP on their faces. It's that soft. Thick rolls lead to less used at every visit with John. Less used = lasts longer = money saved.”
Another five-star reviewer wrote: “Excellent quality toilet paper! This is going to be my go-to paper going forward. The quality is excellent and the price can’t be beat. It’s soft enough but not over the top to where it disintegrates. The toilet paper rolls are extremely large. Def give this a shot!”
The, er, bottom line? You’ll save wads of money by using this toilet paper, without sacrificing quality!
