Consumer Reports released a list of its toilet paper ratings after testing more than two dozen products. In the end, it named the worst and best brands.
Three Wal-Mart products were in the top five: White Cloud placed first and is sold only in Wal-Mart stores. Wal-Mart's Great Value Ultra Strong was third.
Second place went to Quilted Northern Ultra Plush.
All three toilet papers rated high in softness, but the White Cloud 3-Ply Ultra Soft and Thick "combines softness with superior strength and disintegration".
The products were rated with machinery and "sensory panelists" on four criteria: strength, tearing ease, softness and disintegration.
The lowest-rated toilet paper brands included CVS Earth Essentials, as well as Whole Foods' 365 Everyday Value and Walgreen's Big Roll.
The eco-friendly Seventh Generation was soft but not as strong.
