I’m really picky about the type of toilet paper I use, and with good reason. A few years ago, I was actually injured by scratchy toilet paper and had to see a doctor over it.
At the time, my husband thought he would save some money and brought home a cheap variety that was made of who-knows-what. After a few uses, I developed puffiness and a burning sensation down there that got so bad I had to seek medical attention. I didn’t know at the time that toilet paper could actually injure you, but…it did. And it wasn’t fun. It turned out that the cheap TP had given me “micro-cuts” down there, which were causing my symptoms. My doctor recommended that I stop using the scratchy toilet paper immediately, temporarily use a cream down there, and invest in better bathroom tissue going forward.
So now I buy the fluffiest stuff I can find, even though it’s not always the cheapest. I like to save money though, so when I noticed that Amazon has a best-selling brand of inexpensive toilet paper that people rave about in the reviews, I decided it was worth a look.
It’s called Presto, and it has more than 6,000 reviews with an average rating of 4.6 out of five stars—kind of amazing for toilet paper. It’s also a great deal— regularly priced at just $22 for a 24-pack of “mega rolls,” which is equivalent to 96 regular rolls. (By comparison, a 24-pack of Charmin Ultra Soft mega rolls is $30.) Presto toilet paper comes in two types: Ultra-Soft and Ultra-Strong.
When you check out the reviews, you can see that people are straight-up obsessed with this toilet paper. Keep scrolling to find out why.

One five-star reviewer wrote: “I pee about a million times a day and need sensitive toilet paper that lasts a long time and is cost effective. I was intrigued to find out Amazon now had its own variety of toilet paper and I can say after giving it a try for 2 months, I am extremely impressed. I typically purchase Angel Soft, Charmin Ultra Soft, or Cottonelle brand.
Amazon’s Presto has it all. It is extremely cost effective. One of these rolls lasts me at least 2 days and the material is super soft and absorbent. I am really happy and won’t go back to those other brands.”
Another five-star reviewer wrote: “I don’t usually write toilet paper reviews. I also don’t usually switch brands, I did this time though, because it was an Amazon brand and the price was decent. I just keep running around the house and saying, ‘I can’t believe how nice this toilet paper is.’ So, if you are considering switching. This is really nice, soft, thick toilet paper.”
Another five-star reviewer wrote: “Excellent toilet paper for home use as the material is very strong yet soft. One of the best toilet papers I’ve used thus far.”
I decided to order Presto and yeah, the reviewers aren’t exaggerating. This is hands-down my new favorite toilet paper. It’s soft and fluffy like more well-known brands Charmin and Cottonelle, but much cheaper. Plus, the rolls are bigger and denser, yet it doesn’t clog the toilet.
The, er, bottom line? You’ll save wads of money by using this toilet paper, without sacrificing quality!
