If you’re looking for a toilet roll that won’t cause irritation, this might be the ideal choice. It’s fragrance-free and tested by dermatologists. Although it’s two-ply, it feels soft to use. It’s embossed with a print of puppies, which won’t charm every user.

Best bamboo paper

The Cheeky Panda Classic Toilet Roll

Hypo-allergenic and anti-bacterial

Bamboo grows at a rapid rate, making it a highly renewable option for manufacturing products, including toilet paper. The 45 rolls in this pack are three ply, soft and strong, so it’s not a compromise option. Bamboo also has the benefit of being naturally hypo-allergenic, and this paper is BPA free as well as unfragranced. 

Best for small bathrooms

TechniClean Navigator Amoos Softness Toilet Roll

12 roll pack

Megapacks are great if you have room to stash the spares, but if your home is small, check out this buy which offers decent value and fewer rolls to store. It’s three-ply for good absorption and strength. The paper is made from eucalyptus trees, which are fast-growing, so you can keep your green credentials burnished.

Best wipes

Andrex Washlets Classic Clean Toilet Tissue Wet Wipes

Flushable and biodegradable

Toilet wet wipes are an extra, not a replacement, but can leave you feeling cleaner than using toilet paper alone. These have a cotton fragrance and come in 12 packs of 40 sheets. Be aware that you’ll need to flush just one to two wipes at a time.

Bottom line

Toilet paper is a crucial part of hygiene, and there is a huge array of options offering different benefits. Presto! 3-Ply ECO Toilet Tissues is entirely recycled but doesn’t compromise on softness, and is an absorbent three-ply paper.

If you or someone in your home has sensitive skin, Andrex Gentle Clean Toilet Tissue is a sound choice. It’s recognised by the British Skin Foundation, fragrance-free and gentle.
