Criteria Used in Choosing the Best Car Tissue Holders
Below, we will be looking at the criteria we used to determine our Top 10 Automotive Tissue Holder/Dispensers and why the above qualified as the best. Millions of people use trillions of tissues for many reasons in their day to day lives. They are as common as the air that we breathe and the germs that we spread. Helping our viewers remain healthy, and safe while driving is our priority. Here are the most important criteria that we used to successfully determine our list.
Accessibility was most important to us, as driver’s safety is number one in our book. Keeping their eyes on the road when they need a tissue quickly is pertinent. These products above are all within an arm’s length away but in most cases, even closer. The visor tissue dispensers are lightweight, and the tissue is literally right above your head. Being constructed of lightweight material prevents the visor from falling, and in most cases does not obscure the vanity mirror. Backrest holders are excellent as well and keep your front seat less cluttered. Drivers may want to place these types of holders behind the back-passenger headrest, making it effortless for most drivers to reach. These dispensers can easily be rotated into a forward position in the passenger seat if drivers are without a passenger. We really liked the console holder options as well, no searching for the lost box of tissue beneath the seats and has a readymade trash holder attached. Whichever you choose, and wherever you put it, you will only reduce your frustration and increase your margin of safety as you drive. In the modern world of traffic jams and construction back-ups, every little bit helps!
Appearance was an easy one for us as some of the higher end tissue holders/dispensers were all around visually classy (considering their purpose). We really enjoyed viewing all our contenders in this category. All ten of them were neutral in color, most of them in black and went well with all vehicle interiors. The most important visual bonus to these tissue holders was not what you could see, but more what you could not see. No crushed boxes at the bottom of your vehicle floor, no folded restaurant napkins stuffed between seats and on your dashboard. Visually, they are all nice to see and keeps the driver seated in a non-cluttered, safe vehicle. You fasten your seat belt every time you get in, don’t you? Get a well-made tissue holder which will accent your vehicle’s interior while providing that much more convenience and utility.
The quality criteria were a little more challenging because most of these holders/dispensers are manufactured with a few different materials only. Our best of the best, of course, leather. We really liked the smooth touch and the quality precise stitching which makes it a classy choice and beautiful accent to any vehicle. The leather-like materials used in the middle of our list are still very nice and well made, and more cost efficient for the consumer on a budget. Regardless of the materials used on our above list, craftsmanship was shown to be excellent. These dispensers are well made, easy to clean and easy to install. All will provide years of trouble-free service.
When reviewing our products for our list, versatility was also an important factor in making our final decision. Just as no one driver is alike, neither are their daily needs while commuting. Everyone has their unique preferences as to where they would like their tissue holders and dispensers placed. A model that can be placed in a variety of locations in your vehicle gives maximum flexibility in adapting the placement to your specific wishes. We tended to rate a vehicle tissue holder that is versatile higher on our list.
The purpose of buying vehicle tissue holders or dispenser is to keep your vehicle clean and tidy. It follows that we rated products that could be easily cleaned higher on our list. While cleaning your vehicle, all our above products can be wiped with a warm damp cloth and if deemed necessary, a germicidal solution. Always check cleaning instructions before proceeding. A clean vehicle is a happy one!
Let’s face it, consumers find it difficult to spend money on items that do not give some sort of enjoyment or instant gratification. The tissue holder/dispenser is a prime example. A vehicle tissue holder is the embodiment of instant gratification. It can be filled (some come prefilled) and in place, ready for use, within seconds of you receiving it! And if it comes at a great price, we rated it higher on our list.
Finally, we took all these factors into account when making our judgments. You might think that such a simple product is easily compared, but there are significant differences among them, and finding the perfect balance of all these factors was a challenge. We rose to the task, consumed many cups of coffee, and the final list above is, we feel, what each of you would decide if you took the necessary time to compare each, point by point. That’s why we are here, to help you sort it all out and make the best decision!
Frequently Asked Questions
Finally, let’s look at some frequently asked questions about that new essential in your automotive life, the vehicle tissue holder. How much can you ask about such a simple device? You will be surprised. When you consider all the variations we’ve explored above, there are many questions that come to mind when thinking about tissue holders. We will run through some of them below.
Q: How many tissues fit in a holder?
A: The short answer is… it depends. Some of them take a standard-sized box of tissues, and will, therefore, hold as many as that standard box you buy at any store to put in it. Some take the travel-sized packs which hold fewer. Some, like the cupholder-sized dispenser above, are disposable so you get what you get. If you want a lot of tissues with you (like when you’re driving the kindergarten carpool!) you might want one of the larger models. If you are a road warrior taking long solo trips, you may be ok with a smaller version. On the plus side, you can buy whatever meets your needs!
Q: Do they come in colors to match my vehicle?
A: The products we reviewed mostly come in black, so if your interior is black, yes. However, black is usually a universal match to most any neutral interior color. Seems like most interiors are black or gray these days, so there is a good color match. Some come in beige, for a nice blend with the lighter vehicle interiors. If color is important to you, there is one out there for you.
Q: Do you need tools to install a tissue holder?
A: No tools are required for any of the tissue holders we reviewed. Not a screwdriver, not a hammer, not even a pair of pliers. Most are held in place by either elastic or hook-and-loop straps, while the clever disposable version simply drops in the cupholder. Once you’ve purchased one, you’ll have it installed in seconds, ready to dispense a tissue at a moment’s notice. And that’s exactly what we wanted, right?
Q: Can I clean it when I clean the rest of the interior?
A: Yes! You can usually wipe them with a warm damp cloth to remove any fingerprints or other possibly unpleasant contaminants from their surface. You might consider using a germicidal product just in case. But these tissue holders are easily cleanable and should wear well over a long period of time.
Q: Are these tissue holders one-size-fits-all, or do I need a different size for my Mini versus my Hummer?
A: These tissue holders are a universal fit. You may want to select one that holds a travel-sized pack for your subcompact vehicle, but when you get the whole family in the van, you’ll probably want a larger one. There’s nothing worse than running out of tissues halfway across North Dakota! Regardless, any holder will fit in any vehicle.
