Ok, speaking of TP:  which brand leaves the least butt lint?  both Charmin and Quilted Northern are horrible as far as lintiness goes...I mean come on, it looks like it snowed down there or something!  Lately I just use the Publix "green" store brand...seems to hold together better.  Of course, during frequent Ds got to use those baby wipes too.  So In everyone's opinion what's the most linty and least linty brands?


Personal Motto after being diagnosed with two autoimmune diseases:  "I'm basically allergic to myself"

I am currently using Charmine (the one with aloe/ lotion in it) I find that this one has less lint and I can but the mega roll.

I like Angel Soft or the Walmart brand that is comparable :-) I hate lint.
I think Charmin is the most linty.

I used to always buy the Kleenex Cottonel brand.  But now I only by the White Cloud brand at Walmart.   Its just as soft and cheaper.

Scott is what I finally turned to due to this problem. Not the softest, but the least lint. I've noticed my bathroom isn't as dusty, but I can't get anyone else in my household to switch.

I use quilted northern and it doesn't leave butt lint.....but the holder gets linty, which doesn't bother me.

"Feels so soft", I buy it from walmart and it's much better then "Purex", especially regarding lint....and it's as soft as the Purex in my opinion...and cheaper for 32 rolls.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)

cottonelle is both quilted (no lint) AND has aloe in it for thos days where you use a lot of TP.

I am for the Cottonelle too---the purple pack??? I grew up using Scott and that was completely lint free...butt it could tear up a butt :-) Hubby always used Charmin which I found very linty so Cottonelle was our compromise (after all we did agree the paper comes over the top of the roll and he always puts the seat down!)
Dx'd '90 (emergency rupture), symptoms ignored long before that, stable with Pentasa, '03 fistulas and bad flagyl reactions, only on B12 and vitamin supplements now
I'm riding on the escalator of life....

The soft TP's always leave lint. Go for Scott brand if you don't want lint, but it is NOT so soothing on a sore tush.

I swear by Kleenex Cottonelle - the kind with ripples. It's soft enough but doesn't have a lot of lint. The really soft kinds are too linty.

I use scot as long as my butt lets me because it lasts so much longer than anything else. I don't have to change the roll several times a day. When my bootie is causing me trouble I'll switch to charmin.

Let's see since my septic tank doesn't like any thing but Angel soft that is what I use and it has very little lint.

angel soft, northern, etc... all leave residue for me. what i want is a TP that wont break! al the brands we have tried lately suck. national brands local stuff etc.. whole hand goes through sometimes or it tears in liitle pieces trying to get it off the roll. my theory is they went a few microns too thin to get the most sheets on a roll. what used to take 4-5 sheets now takes 8-9 and it still breaks through. this must be causing sheryl crow to lose sleep! so people ,, what wont break???
