Tissues used to last for several days (assuming limited use). Now
they seem to disintegrate very quickly. Is this because of a change
made to increase sales or the banning of a substance or chemical
formerly used in manufacture? Just curious.
The really disturbing thought is of you using the same tissue for days
on end to find out that they disintegrate after "several days".
I only ever use tissues (paper) once, then bin them . Have not
noticed they last any less time in the packet than they used to.
AFAIK Handkerchiefs (never use them disgusting things) do not
disintegrate any quicker than (oh I don't know) never,they will
eventually become threadbare, I would imagine, but not disintegrate as
I'm not saying I keep tissues drenched with snot. I like to have a
tissue in my pocket 'just in case' and in the old days I could leave
it for several days, now I can't. Just wondering what has changed.
Counsel of perfection, I suspect if you have a cold. You could get
though a pack very quickly. I agree that 'used' tissues should be
disposed of and not 'reused'.
Shocking! You can get a week's use out of one, if (as Scott says)
you'e not suffering from a cold!
"Just the odd wipe" until it begins to shred, then keep it at the bottom
of the pile in your pocket, to be used for that bleb of oil, or spilt
tea, or blood off the scratch from the bowsaw -- no point in wasting a
whole new tissue for that kind of thing!
Btw I agree with you Scott - they are more fragile. Probably Alan_m has
put his finger on it -- now more flushable.
I love the Tesco shelf label (the one on the shelf, describing the
product) -- something like "Tissues, pack of 8x10. Price ?1.10 1.375p

I'm sure you must be old enough to remember the days before tissues when people used hankies that got washed and reused.
What does a poor man throw way , but a rich man puts back in his pocket ?
