Agree this works well, though is somewhat resistant to folding.
In the UK, Izal and Bronco were 2 brands which were of this type (the 'scraping' rather than 'dabbing' type).
Not sure if they are even available now, even the men like 'soft' toilet paper. Wimps!

Hi Jim,

When I worked in Hospital pathology we used shiney toilet tissue. It worked

When we are grossing endometrial curettings we have been using a tissue
paper to wrap the specimens and then place in a cassette.
Now everything sticks to the paper which is a real pain when at the
embedding center. The tissue paper we use is also used for hair
permanents. Does anybody have any ideas that work great?
