Not sure if this is a good deal, I hope it helps the members here who can't find paper towels at Woolworths or Coles

Thanks

Mod Note: Paper Towel should not be flushed down the toilet, as they are designed to not break down.

    These cannot be flushed, but they survive being wet, so rinse after use and dry for reuse

    Las time when they were doing toilet paper, I believe there were queues outside the store by 6am already. So… good luck and wake up early.

      That is unreal, I can't imagine on top of my head, this is pure insanity.

    •  

      Got some yesterday at Aldi and then wandered into woolies at 1 and saw they were restocking so picked up some more. Restock times seem random.

      •  

        I think it comes down to when the staff have time to do so. So many things needs to be restocked with all the panic buy so it's almost like non-stop restocking across lots of items.

        I know my local woolies they get the overnight trucks and usually get one mid afternoon and the stuff they're selling out of goes onto the shop floor as soon as it comes in.

  •  

    Why the run on paper towel? Is it instead of toilet paper? I dont get it.

    • +5 votes

      Yes. Alternative to toilet paper and it can be washed an reused.

    •  

      There is no sense in any of it I'm afraid, don't try to get it. People are morons.

      •  

        No sense? The more you buy, the less you need to return to the supermarket later. Where is the sense in not understanding this simple logic?

        As everyone is trying to buy a "bit extra", the supply chain can't cope with that. Authorities blame hoarders, but in fact it's mostly just everyone wanting that "bit extra", as we all were advised to do. Notice how the limits aren't working? Shelves are still empty? Because they can't cope even with the limits.

        • -1 vote

          You're an idiot. No one needs 'a little extra'.. Everyone needs to return to the supermarket for fresh essentials anyway, your contention is stupid.

          •  

            @Ripped: Actually it's you who is misinformed. "Fresh essentials"? Maybe you haven't heard of the freezer.

            The advice has officially been to get a "bit extra", and is now upgraded to "avoid shopping unless necessary".

            Perhaps you didn't get the memo from health ministers and others who said this. They also said not to get too much, not to over-do it, not to hoard. "Bit extra" means exactly that, an extra week or so of supplies. A bit extra.

            Supermarkets are a known risk for exposure to the virus. You seem to be in denial. I suggest educating yourself about the virus, and how touching things and being in close proximity to others is risky. That's why supermarkets are taking extreme measures, and why you shouldn't go there every 2 days to get your "fresh essentials". Get what you need, PLUS a bit extra, and then leave.

            Do you understand now, or do you need a diagram?

            Edit - here's a quote for you: "Victoria's Chief Health Officer, Brett Sutton, recommended families purchase enough food to last for two weeks and medication for 60 days. He suggested that didn't mean stockpiling supplies, but sensibly planning to purchase a bit extra."

    There's a scene in the Simpsons where Homer eats a chilli that's too hot. He goes to get a glass of water and it evaporates before it hits his tongue. These being on sale in present market conditions remind me of that for some reason.

      Yep good luck with the 1.5m between each person in that queue. Is it really worth catching Corona virus over $3 paper towel?

      I get why people like toilet paper, but can't you just use tea-towels/sponges and wash these? I would have thought paper towel is quite optional?

  •  

    I'm starting to get anxious that I'm not being anxious enough.

    Is everyone buying this stuff because they're worried they'll be quarantined and not be able to go out and purchase or that stock will eventually run out?

    I asked several people going past my place this morning but no one wanted to answer me

    • +9 votes

      People are buying this stuff because they're seeing everyone else do it. Who said they won't be able to go out to supermarkets even under "lockdown"? It's all in their heads. Stupidity right in front of our eyes.

      •  

        Not really. Look at NZ and their upcoming lockdown. Ardern has urged people to "avoid the supermarket" if they did not have urgent needs.

        So perhaps you need to adjust your reasoning, because if a leader says "avoid the supermarket" the obvious thing then to do is stock-up before lock-down.

      • +8 votes

        Common sense would be to forego these. You're more at risk standing in line next to a ridiculous amount of other people.

    • +16 votes

      Even in countries with the strictest lockdown rules (China, Italy), people are still allowed to go and buy groceries. People are stocking up 3 years worth because they are idiots.

      •  

        Some families have got 4 - 5 kids, they would use a lot on food and toilet papers.

        • +2 votes

          Yeah I thought that might be the reason.

          Also people buying for elderly neighbours and such.

          I was just wondering, if people were worried they'd get the virus and thought they'd stock up now, aren't they worried about being surrounded by 20 people, 50cm apart in an enclosed space for 20 mins waiting for the shops to open?

        •  

          You still dont need (profanity) 3 sets of 48 toilet paper packs

        Actually in China when under lockdown, only people with permission allow to buy groceries for themselves and their customers, others have to wait wait delivery and they can't pick or choose.

      •  

        people are still allowed to go and buy groceries.

        Yes but people DON'T WANT TO BE at the supermarket, why is this so hard to understand?

        Supermarkets are the worst place to be when a highly infectious virus is running loose. As the virus spreads, it increasingly becomes a risk to attend any location where lots of people are at, especially when touching products and baskets etc is required.

    You have to queue up at the door before 6am and wrestle with a bunch of grandpas in order to buy one.

    I actually think it's irresponsible for Aldi to put this on sale. They can predict it'll be a huge shit fight which will do nothing to promote social distancing.

    This is actually ridiculous that a store would promote people to queue in a crowd for a popular bargain at this time. We don't need people promoting congregations.

    •  

      I understand your point, but what should people do if they have paper towels.

    • +1 vote

      I agree somewhat. For whatever crazy reason toilet paper and paper towels are hard to get. This is just going to promote more undesirable behaviour in a time when we need more sanity.

      Considering that most supermarkets have halted their delivery service, people are going to have to leave their houses.

    Some advice for a fellow ozbargainers. I remember back home in post Soviet Russia it was a common thing to use newspapers to clean your arse. So the basic rules are:
    - crumple one or two pages for a minute or so while doing toilet thing
    - apply gently as it can pierce easily
    - discard in a bucket and dispose as a general waste, and don't flush it as it may block your toilet pipes otherwise
    Thanks.
    Leave toilet paper for elderly people and those in a real need.

    Hi, I have been ordering toilet paper and paper towels on Amazon. Even my friends without Prime was able to get some. I noticed its available every 3rd or 4th day and check around midday until 3.30PM. Try to check tomorrow as it's the 4th day. I was not able to check today, lots of team meetings after Govt order to shut down various business today.

    Quilton 30 pack

    Quilton 45 pack

    Kleenex 60 pack

    Viva Paper Towel 12 pack

    I saved this list on my wushlist or click buy again. You'll notice that it's available when it appears/disappears if searched or buy option appears/disappears. Just keep refreshing until it's available to add in the basket.

    Hope it helps someone just like it helped my friends and family.

    Most likely my role will be next in line to go and will not be able to buy toilet paper ;-)

    See ya later OZB family! Stay safe!

    •  

      Thank you, that would be very helpful when it comes to toilet paper shortages, people need to stop hoarding, it is way beyond ridiculous, I just watched 7 News, all the elderly waiting in front of Coles and Woolies are really dangerous, social distance was obviously not considered.

      Quilton went on sale today

    I hope no one out there still thinks living in genuine a socialist society makes any sense. Human beings will ensure it fails, even if it sounds plausible in theory. People clearly don't give a damn about each other.

    Can make face mask out of it, my son is coughing, perfect to stop him coughing around the house.
    fold in half, fold a bit on the left and right, staple a rubber on both sides, then a kid's face mask.
    Better than having no mask and I need to spray and wipe every surface at home.
