Is there a difference between tissue paper and toilet paper?
Facial tissue and toilet paper is basically the same thing, a disposable wiper made from paper pulp.
Toilet paper is designed to dissolve quickly in water so that it will not clog pipes or damage septic systems and municipal sewer processing machinery.
Facial tissue is manufactured in a way that makes the surface smoother than toilet paper which gives a softer feel to the paper. Facial tissue also often contains lotions, perfumes, and other softeners to make the tissue feel better when used to blow or wipe noses. Facial tissue does not dissolve in water as rapidly as toilet paper and should not be flushed.
Facial tissues generally have wet tenacity (an index of toughness that represents the paper in a fully wet state).
Napkin paper can generally be regarded as facial tissue, but since small restaurants generally use inferior paper towels, it is inappropriate to say that napkin paper is generally regarded as facial tissue.
The main difference in quality between facial tissue and toilet paper is that facial tissue generally has wet tenacity. Toilet paper is generally not allowed to have wet tenacity to prevent the paper from being easily decomposed after use and clogging the sanitary septic tank.
Toilet paper and facial tissue can both be used as a replacement for the other, but there are things that you should take into consideration. When using toilet paper to wipe or blow your nose it will not have the same soft feel as facial tissue and may further irritate an already sore nose. Also since toilet paper is made to dissolve when exposed to moisture it will tear or be blown through when used to blow your nose. If you want to use facial tissue instead of toilet paper for wiping after using the bathroom you risk damaging or clogging your plumbing and septic system since it does not dissolve the way that toilet paper does.
It may be cheaper to use toilet paper instead of facial tissue for blowing your nose. The way to determine if toilet paper is cheaper than facial tissue for blowing your nose is to calculate the cost per sheet used for each. For example, if you spend $1 for a roll of Charmin Basic Big Roll and you use 2 sheets to blow your nose it would cost about ½ a cent, if you use a single Puffs tissue it would cost about 1 cent.
The amount you could save will vary depending on the brands that you buy and how many sheets of each that you use. Many users feel that the softer feel and comfort from using facial tissue is worth spending a few cents more.
What is the difference in usage between facial tissue and toilet paper?
Toilet paper is mainly used for cleaning after going to the bathroom, while other parts of the body such as face and hands use facial tissue, so it pays more attention to touch.
In China, the product standard of facial tissue is GB/T20808-2006 "Tissue paper (including wet wipes)", which is established with reference to food standards; and the product standard of toilet paper is GB20810-2006 "Toilet paper (including toilet paper base paper)". Both hygienic standards can be based on GB15979 "Hygienic Standards for Disposable Sanitary Products".
General consumers will not know the difference between toilet paper and facial tissue. To put it in layman’s terms, boxed tissue paper, handkerchief paper, napkins, and removable plastic wrapping tissue paper (the easiest to confuse) are tissue paper, roll paper, Removable toilet paper, jumbo rolls, etc. are toilet paper.
The easiest way to distinguish is to look at the hygiene standard number on the back of the package or look at the label. The new state stipulates that toilet paper must be marked with "toilet paper". Almost all major manufacturers have marked it very small. Look carefully, if not, you can Refer to Sanitary Standard No. As for the issue of hygiene, in addition to facial tissue, it is best not to wipe the mouth, including the toilet paper in the hotel.
A good facial tissue should be hygienic, flexible, and not easy to shed. If it is hygienic, it needs to be tested with special equipment, and the hygienic standards of general famous brands are relatively high. Whether the chipping is severe or not can be checked visually. Flexibility is reflected in the paper towel being able to stretch to a certain extent without breaking.
