Charmin ultra strong. Soft, but not linty, and it doesn't tear easily.

I'm sitting here thinking the same thing...what is the lint all about? I can't stand the thin TPs because you have to use a huge strip just so it doesn't leak through.

I buy whatever is on sale, but not the super cheap stuff. Usually some form of Charmin, Cottonelle, or Angel Soft.

I like Charmin, but one of my biggest pet peeves is those double-triple-giganto rolls they all sell. Those don't fit on my holders. My house is too old! There is only one store in town that sells regular sized rolls of any brand, but thankfully it is the brand I like.

Scott. It lasts forever and doesn't leave dingleberries.

Um... is it bad if I don't even know what brand I use? I actually just bought some tonight on my way in to work b/c we ran out at home so I'll have to check on my break and see what I got. I haven't noticed an issue with any particular brand and just buy whatever is cheapest at the time.

Cottonelle is my primary choice, but I'll switch up and buy Angel Soft - which ever is on sale.

Because it leaves fluff behind after you wipe.

I use Scott.

Oh...and when I'm at my BF's house...I have a tub of flushable wipes in his bathroom (i use them at my house too) but that solves the lint issue for me...lol.
Angel Soft is less linty than Northern?! I'll have to try it. I usually buy Northern because it's the only one around here that isn't so linty. Hmmm.....

I did get a bad batch of Northern that would just tear through the middle, I called and got a coupon for a free pkg.

After that, I decided to try the new Charmin Ultra Strong. It seemed less linty. My MIL uses Ultra Soft Charmin and I hate all the lint and dingleberries!

Cottonelle.

Angel Soft's OK. Used to like Northern but too linty and pill-y (dingleberries!) nowadays. Don't like Charmin - linty, pill-y and too soft - it provides no 'traction', LOL. I prefer even Scott over it, even though it's single-ply.

Never tried the Aldi store brand, but might be worth checking out as I haven't found much of anything of their's that I don't like.

Same here.

I like Charmin and Angel Soft. I've tried the Scott brand that they sell in bulk at Costco. It's not soft enough for me.

Thanks, but my holder are inset into the wall, and are very close to the toilet, so the converters don't work either.

we use any brand that gives is 1000 sheets per roll.

i, too, am confused about the lint and dingleberries. isn't a dingleberry literally poo that is left hanging from your rectum? at least, that's how i described the same thing when it happened to my dog.

i wipe until nothing visible is left on the tissue. and i wipe hard enough that any lint or residue would be rubbed off on or with the tissue. i have never discovered bits of lint or tissue or ... anything else ... leftover from a previous bathroom visit.

Code:
 
i hope i'm overthinking this.

To be honest, I don't really care what toilet paper I use. Rarely do I experience the "linty"issue with any of them. I usually just buy the generic store brand version...but I have bought Cottonelle, Angel Soft, Northern, Scott, Charmin...and really, I don't notice much. I guess my nether region is not very picky.

I would consider a dingleberries to be little pieces of poo that get stuck in hair around your butt... more common in guys since they're (usually!) hairier.

People here are using it to mean bits of toilet paper that gets stuck to you.

But if you use the right TP you don't have to wipe hard enough to get any lint off... and personally I prefer not to have to wipe very hard down there...

at the risk of getting too graphic in the nature of all things bowel movements, which is what i think we are all talking about, not all bm's are created equally. some are soft and require several wipes to get rid of the residue, while firm ones that break away cleanly on their own can be handled with one good wipe. my aim is not to have visible fecal residue left behind (so to speak). so with the pressure that i apply while wiping, any technical issues with lint would surely be taken care of as i clean myself, which is why i can use any brand of tissue with success.

Code:
 
too late. me thinks i overthunk it.

Well, the vast majority of my trips to the bathroom are just to pee... and I don't want any fluff there, either!
