Not for me

-

-

Do you remember being at school and that horrible thin, scratchy non-absorbent paper that smeared everything around rather than soaking it up, and scratched your delicate bits to pieces? Well, now you know it’s name Izal medicated toilet tissue. If you don’t remember these days, you are indeed...

Good

Hard and strong but not for me.

Now......

At the beginning of the 1890`s a germicidal disinfectant had been made using the by products from coke furnaces, gases, tars and oils. In 1893 this was patented as Izal. The product became available in liquid, powder, soap, cream and ointment form. This famous disinfectant was said to help combat...

“Harsh to wipe your bum on”

published 05/05/2004

tracing paper

harsh scratchy

Izal toilet paper. When I was little I can only remember izal toilet paper I do not think even if soft toilet paper had been invented then that is was common. I remember having to go to our outside loo that did not flush, the “ bucket men” used to come ands collect every week. I used...

It is medicated

It is harsh and not absorbent

I don’t care for this toilet paper from Izal though I know it is still sold in some shops. I cannot think who might choose to buy it and use it for personal reasons as it is so harsh and uncomfortable to use. It’s unpleasant. It is made by Jeyes and has been about for many years and years ago we...

“Now that's A Sore Bottom”

use it to trace on

everything

Does anyone apart from my mother in law actually use this stuff anymore? It comes on either a roll, which I have found in Tesco for 68 for 336 sheets or you can still buy it in the little green and white box with individual pieces which you just pull out one by one. It is made by Jeyes and is as...

“dodgy toilet paper!”

published 26/03/2004

protects environment

you may as well use your hands

This toilet paper is a little different from the norm. Imagine using recycled cheque books to wipe your bum! Well here it is a distinct possibility, although I prefer to think that maybe some of my household bills were used to produce this wafer thin paper that leaves a lot to be desired. My...

“Izal: Old Fashioned Values”

published 14/04/2008

Evocative of a bygone age. Medicated. Clean smell.

Comfort level.

I think that it's the medicated smell that sold me this paper: like clean hospitals and old-fashioned lavatories. The nostalgic rustle of each sheet evoked memories but actual usage is a different story. I guess we've all been spoiled by Charmin and Andrex (neither of which has that evocative...

Having read the other half dozen reviews I note that they all omit one further use of the Izal toilet paper that I remember from you youth. That is that Izal (like cut up pages of Worksop Guardian) serves as a reading aid. Each sheet bore the green cross in a diamond just above the perforations along with the words "Medicated with Izal Germicide". Perhaps it isn't as interesting as reading Worksop Guardian, but at lease the ink never came off the Izal and so your arse only went from brown to red!

“Rough and ready”

published 09/01/2004

Great tracing paper

Your fingers may slip through!!!

This tough and rough tracing paper-like, loo roll really is as old as the hills. It was always available at my school back in, yes well the yesteryear!! It is the sort of paper that you will often find in public loos (probably cheap to buy). Even though the price of public loos is a disgrace...

“Izal? - no it isnt”

published 13/03/2004

very helpful to the environment

not very comfortable

i was expecting to be enlightened in knowing that i was wiping my posterior with paper that was helping global problems and saving the odd tree here and there.On the contrary, after using Izal i feel like going out, chopping down and incinerating every tree i can possibly find just for fun. have...
