Taking a gamble on craps...... Review with images

Advantages-

Disadvantages-

"...now you know itís name Izal medicated toilet tissue. If you donít remember these days, you are indeed fortunate! On paper, (pun very much intended) this offers a useful thing up to the discerning wiper of rear endís and front bottoms. It's medicated to kill bacteria, therefore making your bottom a much more hygienic place ,although I wouldnít try eating your dinner off it! Thats not a place you want your head to get stuck! Less than attractive ..." Read review

So Tough, Yet So Unappealing.

AdvantagesHard and strong but not for me.

DisadvantagesNow......

"...type paper retails at £1.49. Izal toilet paper is produced from a renewable source and is still the choice of toilet paper for some households today. The Carbolic Soap Company are an online shop that sell toiletries of years gone by and they sell Izal, but mainly for novelty purposes nowadays Just imagine popping in to use the loo at a friends house and finding a pack of Izal by the side of the loo! If I close my eyes and use my imagination ..." Read review

Harsh to wipe your bum on

Advantagestracing paper

Disadvantagesharsh 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 to have to wipe my poor delicate bum on this paper ouch scratchy. Also at school I had to run across the school playground to visit the loos, I ..." Read review

This is very harsh and uncomfortable paper

AdvantagesIt is medicated

DisadvantagesIt is harsh and not absorbent

"...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. Itís unpleasant. It is made by Jeyes and has been about for many years and years ago we used to use it but not any more. You get it in those small green cardboard packs and you get a lot of sheets for well under 70p but I wouldnít want to have this left ..." Read review

Now that's A Sore Bottom

Advantagesuse it to trace on

Disadvantageseverything

"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 old as the hills. I can remember it in our toilets when I was in Junior School and for that reason alon I ussed to wait until I got back home before I ..." Read review

Izal: Old Fashioned Values

AdvantagesEvocative of a bygone age. Medicated. Clean smell.

DisadvantagesComfort level.

"...but the experience of the Izal got me thinking "should I have scrunched it or folded it?" Neither seemed to work satisfactorily, and the folding proved a complete disaster. But life in the 40s and 50s seemed a lot happier than today and, if the Izal contributed to this in some way, then I'll keep trying... It's good that Izal is available in both flat-pack and roll forms. It's possible to buy attractive porcelain flat-pack holders on eBay. Overall, ..." Read review

Quick review of Izal Toilet Paper

"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

AdvantagesGreat tracing paper

DisadvantagesYour 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 (that is another story). It is very rough, (like wiping your bum on a sheet of A4) and as far as I am aware is available only in white. It is known ..." Read review

Izal? - no it isnt

Advantagesvery helpful to the environment

Disadvantagesnot very comfortable

"...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 you ever wondered what it would be like to go bare bum down a slide made of glass and sandpaper? If so, try this.however, it does have its strong points. one square efficiently removes the excrament and does not break, causing you to finger your own butt. Overall, it does the job. its only downfall is the ..." Read review
