    There are some toilet paper products that offer great value for money, but don't quite meet the criteria to be recommended. These products become our Best Buys. Products must have a CHOICE Expert Rating of at least 70% and cost 30 cents or under per 100 sheets.

      Disintegration test score

      Expand to view more details.

      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.

      Ply

      Expand to view more details.

      Toilet paper generally ranges from 2 ply to 4 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.
