Sharing her warning not to buy the £3.50 nine-roll pack on the Family Lowdown Tips & Ideas Facebook page, Toni, 34, said: "It is eco because I think they just used a holly bush and pressed the leaves Into a toilet paper sheet.

"To the point you possibly require an ice lolly or ice cubes to help soothe the sharp paper texture that exfoliates you whilst you wipe."

Toni, mum to three teenagers she says 'eat toilet roll', quickly headed back to the supermarket 'to purchase some ice lollies' and says she 'spoilt' herself with a 32-pack of Cushelle instead.

"The tracing paper rolls you used to get in schools were nicer than this," she told the Manchester Evening News. "My partner Andi even considered using a bathroom cleaning Flash wipe whilst I went back to the supermarket.

"My teenagers eat toilet roll, hence why I thought I’d try a more purse friendly eco one and that was a mistake I can tell you.

"It’s definitely given us all a good giggle looking back at it. I would understand if it was the cheapest one there but it wasn’t, I’d say more middle range. I’ve learnt my lesson when it comes to loo roll."

As for the leftover rolls, Toni says she's made sure it's been put to good use.

"I donated it to the school for arts and crafts for papier-mâché for a festival they take part in," she said. "At least it’s been recycled even more."

And for anyone considering purchasing the rolls, she urged: "Save your money and don’t use it unless you like the idea of living wild and if you do just go in the garden and collect some leaves."

A Morrisons spokesperson said: "We're sorry to hear that this customer was not a fan of our Eco Toilet Tissue – that's not how we like to roll."
