Which is cleaner, toilet paper or tissue paper
When buying household paper, do these questions flash in your mind? In this regard, are you "jumping" over and letting it always be just a persistent question? Or, like us, decided to check it out and let myself choose a household paper that is hygienic, meets my needs and saves money for myself?
The toilet paper and tissue paper in the household paper are always with us in our daily life. They affect our health all the time. Because of this, we have to pay attention to them and face up to the embarrassment and misunderstandings we have encountered.
Can toilet paper be confused with tissue paper?
Toilet paper and paper towels (including handkerchiefs, facial tissues, and napkins) are the most easily confused in daily life. It is common for the two to replace each other: someone is accustomed to using tissue paper instead of toilet paper; someone is accustomed to using toilet paper to wipe his face; Some restaurants use toilet paper, and some even use inferior toilet paper instead of napkins...
Maybe you would say, what’s weird about this? My life doesn't need to be so elaborate or so deliberate.
Wait a minute, let's see what the experts think.
Q: Is there a big difference between toilet paper and tissue paper?
A: (Ma Xin, China Paper Research Institute Quality Inspection Center Expert) There is a fundamental difference between the two. The production process, quality and hygiene standards of the two are different. The two cannot be substituted for each other, especially inferior ones. Use toilet paper instead of napkins to wrap food and snacks, or to wipe your mouth.
Q: Will there be any impact on human health after the two are mixed?
A: Toilet paper, especially inferior toilet paper instead of napkins, poses a potential danger to human health. It is said that the potential is because some people use it together and there is no pathogenic bacteria, but some people will respond immediately after using it. , This varies from person to person. As for tissue paper (mainly for qualified tissue paper) instead of toilet paper, we say it is "excess value". As long as you are not too expensive, we do not object to it in principle. But in such situations as toilets, we recommend using toilet paper. why? One is that toilet paper is cheaper than paper towels, and the other is that the wet strength of paper towels is higher than that of toilet paper, which can easily block the toilet.
Q: How can I make sure that the household paper I buy meets the hygiene standards and does not contain pathogenic bacteria?
A; Don’t go to some wholesale markets to buy some cheap household paper for cheap, because there is a distribution center for counterfeit and shoddy products such as "three noes" products or shoddy, fake famous brands. Consumers should go to regular shopping malls or supermarkets to buy, because the goods there are usually regular purchase channels, and the product quality is guaranteed. In addition, the hygienic conditions of the product placement and storage environment are more reassuring, and the paper will not be subjected to secondary pollution. At the same time, when buying, pay attention to check whether the packaging is intact, whether the seal is neat and firm, whether there is any damage, whether the shelf life has passed, the paper that has passed the shelf life will breed bacteria, and it will be unhygienic when it reaches a certain limit. Long-term use is bound to have an impact on human health.
Q: When buying paper, does the higher the paper's smoothness mean that the paper is more hygienic?
A: There is no connection between the two. Many people think that the whiter the paper, the cleaner it is. This is a misunderstanding that consumers often fall into. The cost of paper bleaching is very high, but it has nothing to do with hygiene indicators. In my opinion, toilet paper only needs to meet the sanitary index, and there is no need to emphasize whiteness and smoothness. As for tissue paper, these are sometimes emphasized, but it is also because of consumers’ personal aesthetics, preferences and other factors. As long as you are willing to bear the cost of bleaching, you can care about whether it is white or not, and whether there is an exquisite pattern. These are all up to the individual.
Can paper tissues be mixed?
I remember that every time I went out when I was young, my mother often reminded me to bring a handkerchief. But such a warm scene can only exist in memory, because now the handkerchief has become the yellow flower of yesterday, replaced by various napkins, handkerchiefs, and facial tissues. However, when we are in close contact with them, we rarely care about their quality and hygiene.
Q: Napkins, facial tissues, and handkerchiefs are all paper tissues. Is there any difference between them? A: It should be said that the sanitary standards of paper towels are the same. Napkins, facial tissues, and handkerchiefs are used for almost the same purpose, and there is no difference. To say that there are only differences in folding, packaging, and use occasions. For example, boxed tissues are generally used in homes and offices, while small packages of tissues are commonly used when going out. We usually call them napkins.
Can disinfecting tissues really be disinfected?
After SARS, many people tend to buy disinfection wipes or disinfection wipes. Just looking at the word "disinfection", I felt like taking a reassurance pill, and I couldn't help but snickered: Haha, I can finally stay away from germs.
Q: Can disinfecting wipes/paper towels be thoroughly disinfected?
A: There is no national standard for measuring the sanitary performance index of disinfectant wipes/paper towels. There are actually two understandings of the concept of disinfection. One means that it is disinfected; the other means that it has a disinfection function. In our country, as far as I know, the general disinfection paper towels refer to those that have been sterilized. Some manufacturers came to us for testing. We asked them whether the disinfection paper towels have a disinfection function. They all said that they did not, but the disinfection paper towels themselves had been disinfected.
Q: Disinfected paper towels are disinfected. Does this mean that disinfected paper towels are more hygienic than dry paper towels?
A: Absolutely not. The technology of measuring paper towels is quite mature in our country, and we have no uniform standard for measuring sterilized paper towels, and most of them are made by the manufacturers themselves. In addition, disinfection paper towels are easy to carry bacteria, because it has the temperature and humidity and nutrients for the growth of bacteria. Wet wipes are generally made of non-woven fabrics, with a large amount of fiber, which can provide the nutrients needed for the growth of bacteria. Also, the wet wipes contain liquid and disinfectant, so that bacteria can easily breed. According to comprehensive statistics, the proportion of bacteria in wet tissue paper is higher than that of dry tissue paper. Sometimes, even before the disinfection paper towel is used, the disinfection paper towel has hairy. Therefore, you must be cautious when choosing disinfection tissues. Personally, I try to avoid using sterile paper towels, and I don’t have to use sterile paper towels as a last resort.
The paper industry has started a "price war", who will benefit?
The competition among various manufacturers of household paper has reached a fierce stage. You can get 20% off while he gets 40% off. What's more, you can increase the amount after you fold it, or you can bundle it with a certain brand and spend one. For the money, I got two things, and Le Han has won many consumers. Q: The price of household paper has been reduced. Are consumers the biggest beneficiaries?
A: The wool can still be found on the sheep. Price reduction is only a business need. The profit instinct of tissue paper is very meager, and the manufacturer cannot be so "open-minded" unless he decides to go bankrupt. You just have to pay attention to the observation that the length and size of the paper that has been reduced or increased are less than the length and size of the paper that has not been reduced. This is what we call "buy cheap, use expensive". Therefore, we should keep a clear mind about the price reduction and promotion activities carried out by paper merchants.
