Toilet paper is used to remove dirt from the hands, face, and other body parts after using the toilet. It is made of one to four layers of thin paper, usually recycled and highly fibrous. It is designed to disintegrate in water to keep it from clogging the toilet. It is usually sold in rolls wrapped around a cylindrical cardboard core.
Types of Toilet Papers
Kinds of Toilet Papers include the following:
Unbleached toilet paper
Unbleached toilet paper is usually off-white and slightly coarse.
It is more environmentally friendly because it contains fewer chemicals.
Coated toilet paper
Coated toilet paper is coated with lotion or aloe to prevent skin irritation.
It is usually thicker than non-coated toilet paper to keep the liquid from dissolving the paper.
Low-grade toilet paper
Low-grade toilet paper has two plies of thin paper.
It is coarser than unbleached toilet paper and contains no treatment.
Mid-grade toilet paper
Mid-grade toilet paper is made of two plies of treated, bleached paper.
It is usually lightly textured to make it softer and more absorbent.
Premium toilet paper
Premium toilet paper is made of thick, finely pulped paper.
It has two to four plies and is usually coated with lotion.
Choosing Toilet Papers (Buying tips)
Texture: Choose a slightly textured toilet paper to make it absorbent without irritating your skin. Avoid grainy textures because they can leave particles on your skin.
Thickness: Choose two- to four-ply toilet paper with thick, durable layers. One-ply toilet paper is too thin and will easily tear when you wipe.
