Mum posts hilarious review after buying cheaper toilet paper and instantly regretting it
'You possibly require an ice lolly or ice cubes to help soothe the sharp paper texture'
A woman has shot back at a brand of eco-friendly toilet paper by leaving a scathing online review that says it left her longing for ice cubes to help sooth the pain it caused her.
34-year-old mum of three, Toni Jones, was just trying to save a few pence when she picked up a pack of eco-friendly toilet paper during a recent visit to Morrisons. Thinking she could cut down the price of her weekly shop whilst also doing her bit for the planet felt like a win-win scenario - until the time came to actually use it.
Posting to the thrifty Facebook page Family Lockdown Tips & Ideas, Jones decided to share her experience using her latest purchase which claims to be "super soft" and made made from 100 per cent recycled paper.
As reported in the Manchester Evening News, Jones' review of the £3.50 pack explained: "It is eco because I think they just used a holly bush and pressed the leaves into a toilet paper sheet.
"To the point you possibly require an ice lolly or ice cubes to help soothe the sharp paper texture that exfoliates you whilst you wipe," she added.
Speaking directly to the publication, Jones further elaborated on her uncomfortable experience with this planet friendly product: "The tracing paper rolls you used to get in schools were nicer than this.
"My partner Andi even considered using a bathroom cleaning Flash wipe whilst I went back to the supermarket," said Jones.
"My teenagers eat toilet roll, hence why I thought I’d try a more purse friendly eco one and that was a mistake I can tell you.
"It’s definitely given us all a good giggle looking back at it," she continued. "I would understand if it was the cheapest one there but it wasn’t, I’d say more middle range. I’ve learnt my lesson when it comes to loo roll."
Needless to say, Jones and her toilet paper hungry kids didn't return to use the leftover rolls. Instead, the disgruntled mum reportedly donated them to a local school in the hopes that kids could use them during arts and crafts activities.
"At least it’s been recycled even more," she commented.
Meanwhile, Morrisons have since offered their thoughts on the situation, with a supermarket spokesperson saying: "We're sorry to hear that this customer was not a fan of our Eco Toilet Tissue - that's not how we like to roll."
