In this test we assess how soft the toilet paper is. This is a subjective assessment conducted by a panel of five people.

Puncture test score
We assess the strength of the toilet paper by testing its resistance to puncturing. In this test a higher force is the most desirable result, meaning your finger is less likely to go through the paper.
enter value/s in increments of i between 46 and 94
Disintegration test score
We time how quickly the toilet paper disintegrates. The faster the better - you want your toilet paper to break up quickly as it moves through sewage, making it less likely to block pipes. The quickest takes just over a minute to disintegrate while the longest takes just over 16 minutes to disintegrate.

Cost per 100 sheets
This is based on the pack size tested, but will vary depending on pack size and special offers. Check the unit pricing on shelves for the best value for money pack size.

Toilet paper generally ranges from two-ply to four-ply. This simply refers to the number of layers of paper used. Generally the higher the ply count, the thicker, softer, stronger and more absorbent the toilet paper should be.
Bleaching (chlorine free) claims
FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) is an international, non-profit organisation that promotes responsible forest management. It achieves this by setting standards on forest products with a certification process. You'll find the FSC tree-tick logo on many toilet paper packs, but if you take a closer look at the fine print you'll notice there are three classifications to the label – FSC Mix, FSC Recycled, FSC 100%.
The Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) is an international organisation that works to promote sustainable forest management.
Suitable for all toilet systems
A Similar model is identical in most aspects except for a few. This means that a majority of its test results are identical so you can reasonably expect to get the same results from the model we tested, but for those aspects which aren't identical, we'll note these as "Not Tested" in the Compare tables.
A Tested model refers to a model that is still current and available in the Australian market. You should be able to order this model through your local retailer, or find it online.
These models can't be found in retailers or online or are no longer manufactured. You may still find these models on second hand websites, or in second hand dealers. Test methods may change over time, so criteria which can't be directly compared will contain an N/A.
An Identical model is exactly that. Performance characteristics will be identical and the only difference will be something trivial such as colour, which won't have an impact on performance.
These are models we haven't yet tested but that are available.
