Our family is getting through them at the rate of knots. My theory is that instead of putting the prices up, Andrex has simply reduced the length and hoped no-one would notice. I know this is a small and ridiculously insignificant point, but it just makes me wonder what else is being cut back on in industry/manufacturing. Airplane safety checks, perhaps? Factory hygiene? Perhaps I'm being paranoid...Having said that, all my friends are saying the same thing about loo rolls. Would be interested if anyone out there is having the same experience!
The thicker the paper the less you get! I bought some Andrex aloe vera ones (I think that's what they were??? they were on special offer) and we were getting through 2 a day. There's only 4 of us in the house.
Back to Tesco own brand. Though I can't buy the value one's - everyone complains that it's too rough on the bum !!!!
Yes, we get Andrex too, but not the Aloe Vera. I definitely think it's a very recent thing. The roles used to be really chunky, but now they're loosely packed so they look the same thickness, but aren't.
I read somewhere that several manufacturers were downsizing their sizes - eg. Heinz ketchup used to be in a 400ml bottle and is now 350ml for the same price (although in that case you'd be able to see the difference if you looked for it - a bit more cheeky with loo rolls though!)
