Tip: Crimp Toilet Paper Roll to Save

I just wanted to share that I found a way to save on toilet paper. Just put a crimp in it so that it does not go round and round so easily. By having the crimp, it stops and allows you to use a smaller amount instead of the waste of what you don't really need.

Tip: Prevent Toilet Paper Waste

When putting on a new roll of toilet paper, squeeze it first before you hang it. That way, it will not keep on rolling. Very helpful if you have small children.

Tip: Using Less Toilet Tissue

Sometimes (especially for children), it's easy to use more toilet paper than you really need. Although I don't have kids, I've found I use a lot less toilet paper by keeping a bean bag (or something similar) laying on top of the toilet roll. The bean bag just needs to be lifted slightly when you pull off the sheets you need and it makes me conscious of what I'm doing!

Absolutely right but you should also teach them to wash their hands BEFORE using the toilet in a plublic place or at home. In a house the place with more germs and bacteria is not the bathroom it is the kitchen.

It's really true that Scott 1000's are the most economical, especially when on sale. However, I've found *some* store brand 1000's that are just as good.

Do your kids get mesmerized watching the toilet paper roll spin 'round and 'round, thereby using WAY more paper than they actually need? Next time, before you put the toilet paper roll on the spindle, "squoosh" it slightly between your hands. This will flatten the inner cardboard roll just enough to cause a little resistance as the roll turns -- resulting in fewer "avalanches" of TP!

RE: Toilet Paper Tip

I'll have to remember that one, also ~ how about putting the roll up with the sheets facing towards the wall instead of towards the room - not so many sheets are "dispensed" this way round. (05/10/2004)
