Okay now, don't you laugh about this! I usually always buy Angel Soft toilet paper. I like it, it doesn't tear apart, it is strong and it is nice and soft to the touch. I went to the store and they didn't have it in stock. So I contined my shopping errands and stopped at another store and guess what - no Angel Soft! So, I looked around and tried to find something else. I didn't want to buy the store brand because that is usually poor quality, etc. So, I decided to buy Quilted Northern. I got the 6 pack that has double rolls so it was like 12 rolls. I have a big family so that is why I always buy the biggest size. Anyways, I bought it and brought it home and my son and husband started complaining how it was like sandpaper and very rough. Well, I was wondering why I was starting to be sore and I then remembered buying the Quilted Northern. I went and got some Angel Soft today and let me tell you therre is a big time difference. I am so happy to have my old trusted friend! Hahaha! I just had to share! It is too funny to me! Have any of you guys ever had a similar experience?

I know what you mean about liking a certain brand of toilet paper. We only use Scott. I know alot of you dont because its not the softest in the world, but my entire family (including my husband) use toilet paper like its going out of style! I refuse to spend money on rolls of tp that won't last but maybe a day in my home. It just doesn't make any sense how much toilet paper they use. It seems as though they are deathly terrified of getting SOMETHING on thier hands!

That is hilarious! Well, using too much is better than not using enough I guess! LOL!! Stock up when it is on sale, that's what I do. And Scott does take a LONG time to use the one roll.

I understand, they use alot of tp in my house too! If you clog the toilet 3 out of the 5 times you use the restroom, its time to start using less!

Haha..now thats funny...yeah I know what your talking about tho, theres some tissues that are so rough, my husband calls them John Wayne tissue, its tissue that don't take crap off nobody...haha. I used Angel Soft too, I tried the Quilted Northern but I didn't like it because it makes too much lint, if you know what I mean..lol. I just figured the more expensive stuff has to be pretty good, but not the case. So now I'm back to Angel Soft...

So you bought the John Wayne toilet paper, Rough and tough and doesn't take crap from anyone. That's a hard lesson to learn. But I have a question, why do girls wrap toilet paper around their hand like an oven mit? What's up with that!

I love soft toilet paper too but not too soft that it crumbles and sticks to your skin. I don't like those ones at all and I have bought so many kinds just to test them all out and see how well they perform. It can be difficult to find one that we all can be happy with especially when you share your home with others and they like a different feel of paper. I also don't like the hard ones that hurt your skin. My skin is very sensitive so I have to be careful and that is why I sample a variety to see which one is best suited to me.

I do buy Quilten Northern from time to time, but I do prefer Angel Soft as it really is softer. My least favorite is Scott tissue. That's the most economical, but the texture is too harsh for delicate skin. I know it's funny, but it's something that we all have to deal with every day and we all want the softest thing that close to our skin!

I agree - it really is the softest and strongest one out there, just like the packaging says.

We normally buy Cottonelle, but ofcourse he went to the store and couldn't figure out what we buy LOL. My husband just bought Angel Soft and it is horrible! I don't know if they have different types or what. I just don't like it. I find it to be really rough and falls apart very easily. At least he didn't come home with Northern! That stuff is the worst. The lint alone will drive you batty,

i certainly have. the only brand i use is Charmin. anything else just won't do for me and that includes angel soft (sorry!). other brands are either too soft that they shred easily or too rough and make me sore. the funny thing is, northern used to be my favorite brand because of the cool designs and they were the ones who first produced the quilted toilet paper. but after i discovered charmin i never looked back. yes, there have been rare occasions when i couldn't find charmin and then i just bought a couple of rolls of a different brand to last a few days until i could find my favorite brand.

That's funny that you like Charmin. I hate that one the very most because it leaves fibers behind on everything and falls apart. But that is just me maybe.

You had to ask. Here in Mexico toilet paper is a luxury for most. A public restroom never has it free or people will steal it. It costs at most places to use the can about .20-.50 cents. The bathroom keeper gives you about 5 squares of the cheapest roughest on the market. 5 squares isnt enough to clean the bowl more or less lay down as a protective layer. If you are nice and smile they will give another 5 squares, but you cant count on this. So the term here for any roll of toilet paper is a "Roll of Peace". Let peace roll on to every one here on my lot. :)

I've never tried Quilted Northern, but I absolutely hate Charmin tissue! It leaves some fibers behind on everything. I also sometimes would get Charmin fibers in my eyes because they fly through the air!
