Is using "Regina blitz" a sign of being middle class?

Was told that buying regina blitz kitchen roll is pretentious and a middle class excess? confused

Anyone agree?

I guess, in Jilly terms, it's a Jen Teale thing?

IncyWincyGrownUp Fri 24-Nov-17 21:39:18

Nah. I’m common as much and buy it because it’s strong and kitchen proof.

dementedpixie Fri 24-Nov-17 21:40:19

I buy it when it's on offer

RemainOptimistic Fri 24-Nov-17 21:40:32

Never heard of it. What class does that make me?

AndNoneForGretchenWieners Fri 24-Nov-17 21:42:11

I had never heard of it but bought it today because it was on offer and kitchen roll is so bloody expensive for the decent stuff anyway. I didn't realise kitchen roll could make one middle class.

I'm pretty sure you have to pretend not to notice brands to be truly middle class grin

I've never heard of it. What a ridiculous name.

I stopped buying it in favour of Morrison's 'Multi' kitchen towel.

It's exactly the same (not even a slight difference) and much cheaper.

The class thing is weird. I have no idea about that crap grin

confused

That's a new one.

buckeejit Fri 24-Nov-17 21:45:32

Ooh. Morrisons multi you say? Off to see if it's in the Amazon pantry......

This thread has left me very confused, which either means I'm too posh, too common or just a bit pissed.

Ermm.....^kitchen roll^.... is that a commodity used by the staff?
I'll send for the butler, he will enquirer of the Housekeeper, who will have a word with Cook, who will ask the kitchen scullery maids, then I'll get back to you on this issue.

thenettyprofessor Fri 24-Nov-17 21:47:19

Heeellloooo one does only use this when...the bog roll runs out luv alrite

BrandNewHouse Fri 24-Nov-17 21:47:51

What class would never having heard of it make me?

Hulder Fri 24-Nov-17 21:48:08

Never heard of it. Am with Apples - to be truly middle class you wouldn't notice the brand, or be shopping in Lidl marvelling at the value.

Upper class - your butler buys it.

It sounds like an industrial-strength feminine hygiene product, so I'd say it's not associated with the middle classes (who obviously have no need for such things).

CharlieSierra Fri 24-Nov-17 21:50:18

I've never heard of it. And I don't buy kitchen roll. What class am I?

Thishatisnotmine Fri 24-Nov-17 21:50:50

There is another called Regina Wish which has extra perforations. Big or little sheets, up to you! I want them to combine Blitz and Wish.

RatRolyPoly Fri 24-Nov-17 21:51:15

Ha, no! We used to buy it back when we were beer-swilling call-centre working layabouts who dossed at each others' houses. So many alcohol spillages... grin

buckeejit Fri 24-Nov-17 21:51:17

Boo, just strong & absorbent or ultra strong & thick.

I might try Regina vs the ultra strong & thick.

Incidentally my cat is called Regina & she won over the bog standard kitchen roll we normally get this morning when she decided to attack it 🐱

buckeejit Fri 24-Nov-17 21:52:34

Ooh, now I want the wish-I hate waste & am so stingy that I often rip a piece of kitchen roll in 2 if I don't need the whole thing, but it's not easy

ZenNudist Fri 24-Nov-17 21:52:36

I thought this was a vagina steaming product grin

NatMatCat Fri 24-Nov-17 21:55:18

No. Middle class people have an aversion to kitchen roll. Possibly acceptable to keep some Waitrose own brand under the Belfast sink.

Halebeke425 Fri 24-Nov-17 21:55:46

Agree with WorraLiberty morrisons multi is identical and have never heard about any class bullocks it's kitchen roll for God's sake.
