Thus having a tissue paper is more sanitary than bringing a towel.

Most tissue paper are plain white. Some come with various colors. Some have printed logo as way of advertisement. White colored brands without prints are definitely the recommended choice. In case colored brands with prints are desired, be aware that some of them are using poor quality dyes. When the tissue comes in contact with water, the color might stain skin or clothes. You might also eat those dyes in indirect manner. Having this kind is a mess.
