Toilet paper

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

Cottonelle.....

But what I don't know is how you know it's linty?

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.
cowash: Tresemme Naturals
rinse out: Garnier Triple Nutrition
Leave in: Suave naturals, whichever scent I'm into at the moment
gel: Garnier Fructis or LA Looks

3a-3b - high porosity
Cottonelle is my primary choice, but I'll switch up and buy Angel Soft - which ever is on sale.

Its not a weird question....my BF and I get into this debate all the time. He's a die hard Northern user....I perfer Angel Soft. For me....northern is too soft and linty. Angel Soft is like the perfect balance of softness without lint.

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.

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.

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.
That's right, I said it! I wear scrunchies!!

I am a sulfate washing, cone slabbing, curly lovin' s.o.b. The CG police haven't caught me yet.

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

Or maybe just down the toilet . . .
I'll see myself out now . . .
