Minor British Institutions: Izal toilet paper

Author: By Sean O’Grady

San Izal has been rebranded Izal, and the tissue seems less unforgiving than
before. Make no mistake, this is not the sort of roll that the Andrex puppy
would like to romp around with, but it is just a little less austere than
before. The scent of disinfectant seems also to have disappeared, which is a
bit of a shame for those who like their khazi karma nice and traditional.

It is difficult to believe that, in a world of ultra-soft pastel-hued
lavatorial opulence, such a throwback to the age of austerity will still be
bought out of choice (it is not particularly cheap either). Some websites
market it as a “novelty product”. Nostalgia, surely, has its
limits: there’s no need to scrape the bottom of the barrel.
