PROPER toilet roll…

Woman's Weekly / 2nd August 1957

THIS IS IMPORTANT! We’ve passed right over emotional blackmail here and gone to all-out panic, it seems. Although Izal is still on sale, it’s never beaten soft toilet paper in British affections, despite shrill adverts like this. On the contrary, there’s few people who remember it fondly from the days when it was used in public and school toilets, as this set of reviews proves. According to some posters, there’s a special knack to getting the best out of Izal, but it does rather seem like a lot of work, and folding it into three would negate the less ‘wasteful’ claim of the advert. Frankly, a proper hand wash sounds like a better idea to me.
