Charmin Basics Toilet Paper - 3 star Review - Absorbent, quick dissolving, but a little rougher than what I like. 2/17/2015
Usually when I try a new toilet paper I want to know what I am getting, is it 2 ply, single ply, double roll, how many sheets, and the cost per roll. Charmin has not been my normal go-to roll of TP for a long time due to cost. I like the Ultra Charmin as it is soft and absorbent, but is expensive. The first thing I noticed with Charmin Basic is that it was 1 ply. I don't buy 1 ply at all. It seemed very thin and you could see through it, I did not like this either. My kids both tried it out first and the first thing they said was, "It's not 2 ply!" I later tried it and found it okay. It is not a bad toilet paper. It was not terribly soft, I would like softer paper. It was absorbent and it did seem to dissolve quickly, which is good for my septic tank.
I did talk to a few friends about their preference on toilet paper, some like 2 ply, some 1 ply, some like the lotion feel and softness, some don't. It all depends on what you like. I would give this a 3 star toilet paper.
