A Real Test of Kleenex - Not Just Some Review
By Have Fun, Because It's Too Short!
I could not find a real test, so I did my own. Here is what you can expect from these tissues.
Prior to buying these tissues, I was looking at reviews and the sales copy to all the brands out there. I was so disappointed in the lack of info, so I made a promise to myself that after I ordered these, I was going to truly test them. The box then arrived and the fun began.
The first test I had to do was the smell test, because I have a really sensitive smell and wanted to see if these were going to make me feel fresh or dirty or chemically overwhelmed. So when they arrived, I opened up the box and did a deep sniff. I was pleased at this phase, no real scent, not even the smell of paper. What they did in order to make this happen I do not know, but I was impressed. So the next step was I took out around 10 tissues and then placed them on my face for a good minute, again I was really impressed on lack of smell. So on the scent test, I am giving Kleenex flying “A’s” for minimal scent and non-paper or chemical smell.
The next thing I wanted to test, because I know no one has tested this before, was the box. I hate when you get ½ way down a box of tissues, reach your hand in and it collapses. When you have allergies all the time and you are irritable from a stuffed or runny nose, you just want things built well around you verses cheap and flimsy. So I removed all the tissues and then I rammed my hand in and out of the box 30 times. To say the least, I was really impressed how the box held up.
As I waited for my wife to get ready for a dinner party, I fulfilled my curiosity to how strong is the box. So I took the empty box and placed books on it, one at a time. Want to guess how many books it held before it collapsed? If you said 43 then you are correct! It could have likely gone higher, but as I kept stacking books on it, I lost my patience and towards the end I slammed books on it. When it collapsed, my wife walked in and asked what I was doing, she then shook her head and left after I explained. Although I know there are curious people out there like me, so someone on Amazon will be happy I did this test. So for strength of box and quality, another “A” is given.
I then did a visual test of the box. Here it got straight up “F”. I live in a modern designed house and no matter where I stuck the box of tissues, it stood out like a sore thumb. Now the “F” is for visual effect compared to my décor, but for the person who has to sneeze and has a nose filled of snot, the stand out design that catches your eye would likely cause them to give the design an “A”, because they could quickly find the tissues and prevent a mess.
The next test was tissue strength. I again was impressed. The problem is most people take a tissue and blow in it and say, “Good” or “Bad”. To me this is too simple and not realistic. Unless you got tissues at a dollar store, most tissues are strong during the first blow. I wanted a real world test. A test that fits more of reality than a 30 second commercial. So what I did was I put my cat directly on my face and sniffed in his dander (yes, I took one for the team for this test). I then teared up and snot came running out like a champ. Well in the real world, you’re grabbing a tissue and blowing your nose, then 10 minutes later your nose shoots out snot again and you need another tissues. So in this scenario, I blew my nose and then stuck it in my pocket, something my wife always threatens to divorce me over because it grosses her out. 10 minutes later I grabbed the cat again and sniffed the dander, taking another hit for the team. My nose flowed like a river. I took the tissue used prior and blew my snot into it for the second time. I was surprised. Not only did the tissue handle the second round of snot, my hands remained clean and I felt like I was giving back to mother earth as I was successfully able to use a tissue twice, reducing waste. Another “A” for the Kleenex brand.
Softness after blowing was my next observation. A lot of times when blowing, I find that my nose feels dry and wind chapped from the tissue. In the case of the Kleenex, my nose was a little sensitive, but it did not feel too dry. I was impressed, because a lot of times I will use my wife’s t-shirt to blow my nose, because it’s soft. The tissue felt far better and for some reason my wife was glad with this observation. Another “A” was given.
Another item I saw in the description of the tissues above was “Flat Tissue Boxes”. So I had to test. I took out my level and placed it on the box. For a tissue box, I gave it another “A”, as it passed the flat test. While testing this feature out though, I became real curious and searched for about 30 minutes for a non-flat and preferably round tissue box. I failed at this endeavor, so if you are someone who knows of this hidden secret of a round tissue box, can you please post below in the comments! So the flat rating is another “A” for the overall product.
Another test was the wind test. How fast could I throw air through the tissue before it broke? There is nothing worse than sneezing into a tissue, to have it tear and then fluids go flying through. Anytime that occurs, bystanders always give you a weird look. The first test I did again was sniff the cat then look at the sun. I was impressed, because this actually caused me to sneeze. When I did this, all 3 times the tissue held up and did not tear. Although I blew pretty fast and hard, I know others out there can do it better, so I had to take the test to the next level. I used a hair dryer and the tissue held up. I then used compressed air used for cleaning PCs and the tissue still did not tear. I felt a little defeated, so I turned on my air compressor at 100 PSI and finally won. So for overall strength in natural circumstances, Kleenex gets another “A”.
My final test was the dust test. I hate blowing your nose and then seeing tons of tissue dust in the air. I often notice this in bright sunlight, so I waited until the early afternoon hours and took the test to my car. The car was perfect, because it was closed in and no air flow. I blew my nose 5 times and each time I violently pulled the tissues out of the box prior, trying my best create dust. There was tissue dust in the air, but it was minimal. As a result, I did not feel like I was breathing in confetti and was pretty satisfied overall. For tissue dust control, I gave Kleenex a “B+”.
Okay, my eyes are watering from the cat still, so I am going to summarize my other observations up quickly. During my experimentation I went through 5 boxes of tissues. Besides the first time I pulled out a tissue from a fresh opened box, the tissues always came out cleanly and one at a time. During my testing I did taste the tissues out of curiosity and it had a very clean flavor to it and did not make me want to throw up. I recommend not eating them, but sometimes when you inhale in to blow, you get the tissue in your mouth.
Overall this is a great product and done well. I give this 5 stars for a daily use tissue. I did not have a flu and have to use them for 3 days straight, so realize my bias is towards daily use at this time. When I do a get the flu, at that time I will update my post.

All around good product
Our family goes through a lot of tissues. This 6 pack of 170 tissues will last for about three months, which makes me really grateful for the subscribe and save program. In my opinion, you can never have a big enough supply of tissues. I keep a box in every room in the house, plus both cars.
During a bad cold, my son will just carry a box around with him. He hasn’t really learned to conserve tissues, and to be honest, I’m just happy he is using them and not his shirt sleeve! And, these tissues are soft and gentle on his nose. He would rather take a box from home with him to school than use the sandpaper tissues that are in the classroom. I can’t blame him, I have a box on my desk at work for the same reason.
That said, I particularly like how soft these tissues are, without having lotion in them. Because of this, I can use them to clean glasses when I don’t have a glass cleaner handy. Trust me, that’s a lot more often than one would think. Finally, the tissues are fairly strong. I can stuff a couple in my coat pocket and not have it disintegrate by the end of the day. What good is a shredded tissue when you really need one? So, I am really happy with the tissues, the price, and the subscribe and save program. Until someone eliminates the common cold, allergies, and sappy movies, I can’t see ever removing my subscription.

Like the tissues, HATE the oversized 170-count box
This 2-star review applies to the 170-count six-pack of tissues, not to the 110-count eight-pack. With the eight-pack, I would have left a 5-star review because I love Kleenex tissues. They are soft and sturdy, exactly what this allergy-prone family needs the most, and the boxes are the perfect size.
Here comes the negative part and what cost this product three stars. The 170-count boxes are too tall for tissues that stack this way (designed to pull the next tissue up into position). After you have used about half of them, gravity takes over, and the top tissue falls down inside, so you have to cram your hand through the narrow slot on top of the box to try to reach it with your fingertips. It becomes more and more difficult to get tissues out the closer you get to the bottom of the box. Eventually, you have to tip the box on its side and pretty much shake them to a place where you can reach them. I have found myself avoiding blowing my nose simply because I didn't want to have to wrestle a tissue out of the box, which is ridiculous. Until Amazon goes back to an 8-pack of the smaller boxes, I will not be ordering these Kleenex tissues again. Even though the $1/box Meijer tissues aren't as soft, at least I don't have to fight with them when I have a runny nose.
