What's worse than no TP is when you can't find the end and then it rolls out in very thin little strips. That about ticks me off worse than no paper at all. Another tip I read online is carry a dry cloth in your purse for drying your hands. I carry a dry wash cloth. I hate the blow dryers for drying hands. I've heard they are not all that sanitary, as the heat spreads germs. I always had wet wipes in my purse.
I use them a lot and get mine at the 99 Cents Only store. "Pure and Gentle" blue package 80 wipes. (Not the cartoon logo packages, they are not as strong.)
I put them in a previous baby wipes box at home and carry them in my purse in a Ziploc sandwich baggie.
I think this is a great idea, but where do you stop with how much stuff you carry around with you all the time? I have indeed encountered the toilet paper before, but now I just make sure I check the stall before I use this one or if this is the only stall, then I get some tissues or towels at the sink. If this does not work, then I go to management and tell them to bring me what I need. I carry so many first aid things now it is crazy.
This is a great tip! Besides those "no toilet paper zone" bathrooms we all run into, having wipes in your purse a good thing even when food shopping. I stopped counting how many times I've picked up detergent or a milk carton with a leak, or have grabbed an item with gunk or residue from another package on it. Wipes would sure come in handy then, too.
I always carry tissues in my pocketbook. And they now have the seat covers that you can stick in your purse. This is an excellent idea!
