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. 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 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 try. It’s called Presto, and it has more than 96,000 (!) reviews from verified customers with an average rating of 4.7 out of five stars — kind of amazing for TP.
Worth noting: If you decide to use Amazon's subscribe & save feature, you can snag this TP for $16.77, saving 5% now and 15% on repeat deliveries. While you're at it, consider that there are a slew of Amazon Basics household products marked down right now, making it a great time to stock up on the essentials.
My toilet paper epiphany was caused by my husband deciding to save some money and bringing 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, treat the area with a cream and invest in better bathroom tissue going forward.
I read some of the thousands of reviews on Amazon and decided to give Presto a chance. Now I'm as big a believer as its raving reviewers.
One of them 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.”
With as often as we all use toilet paper, even getting a little savings on individual packs can add up over time. So, what are you waiting for?
