Just as the pandemic started I ordered some toilet roll from ebay.
Guess which one came from ebay (I ordered 10 rolls)

But to be fair, it is 4 ply.
Fret not, a forum is a collection of opinions. Above, are mine.


Working on anything electrical? have you got a multi meter? why not? Would you hit a nail with a shoe?

This must rolls ordered on ebay or Amazon?

I ordered 10 rolls 2 weeks ago from ebay, Chinese supplier based in Belfast, was supposed to arrive last Thursday, It didn't so I asked the supplier for refund and was paid 3 days ago. However, the rolls arrived yesterday via Royal Mail and the postman left it by the porch which is still left there unopened in case supplier wants to collect them. From the packaging, the size looks similar as in your photo, from the pic they're roughly 5 times more expensive than the ones from supermarkets.

I have to admit, I got "The last laugh"
My other half took the mick when I showed her the "new rolls" but she said not top worry as she too had ordered some on line (Unknown to me at the time)...........yep, you guessed it, when they arrived they were the same as the ones I received :lol:

But in anyone's defence (who gets them intentionally or not) unlike your bog standard toilet roll, these really are 4 ply (Usual toilet roll is only 2 ply) and yes they are not as wide, you don't really need a really wide sheet of paper, and you don't have to use 2 "old sheets" to make it thicker (or is that just me :oops: ) so in theory (not tried it yet) They should last just as long, and the other thing is they are actually "softer" As I said, mine came from a seller on ebay, they were advertised as commercial toilet rolls, as for price about 1.5 times as much as average, but then what is average? (Tesco soft is 47.5/roll Andrex quilted is 68.7/roll)
