CHOICE Expert Rating


What is the CHOICE Expert Rating

CHOICE Expert rating

This is the product's overall performance score, based on key tests conducted by our industry experts in the CHOICE labs.

CHOICE Expert Rating View more details.

This overall score is made up of disintegration time (30%), softness (30%), separation (tear) force (20%) and puncture (strength) force (20%).

Separation test score View more details.

We measure the ease of separating the toilet tissue at the perforation. The easier it is for toilet paper to tear, the better.

Puncture test score View more details.

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.

Disintegration test score 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.

Softness score View more details.

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

Recommended View more details.

We recommend toilet paper that scores at least 75% overall, and no individual scores below 65%.

Price View more details.

This is the price we paid at the time of testing. Price is per pack, and will vary depending on the size of the pack you buy.

Cost per 100 sheets View more details.

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.

Ply View more details.

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.
