This is one of the things that grossed me out the most when we started to date and later live together: toilet paper all over the apartment. Before I used toilet paper exclusively in the toilet for which I thought it was intended to be used. Every time I saw it in some room, it remembered me about toilets. But how wrong could I be?
Like the multifunctional kitchen rag Timo from Crazy Chinese Family and I already wrote about, toilet paper, kitchen rag’s BFF, is almost more useful, as it practically can be used all over the house and can be stored in every room. Here some visual examples where to put it from our apartment:
How I thought it has to be used:
– On the toilet, as toilet paper
How it can actually be used:
– To blow one’s nose
– For cleaning if you spill anything everywhere
– Clean a large surface if you are too lazy to get a rag
– Clean the table if you are too lazy to get a rag
– Clean your face if you are too lazy to get a rag
– Use it as a support plate while eating
– Secondary usage: on the toilet, as toilet paper
So it is actually like a disposable kitchen rag. But never use too much at once, or else it would be wasteful!
When I ask for the reason they use it everywhere, I get the same answers all the time: it is cheap and practical. Doh!
Mr. Panda and his dad actually swap information at which store and when toilet paper is on sale. If there is a good bargain, they go to the store several times to buy as many packs as possible. There is only one thing that bothers me: they do not care about the quality, and sometimes they get the worst, most scratchy paper which is sold. I refer to it as ‘Super Scratchy 3000’. Last time he actually got more than 20 packs which are now stored in every free corner in our home. At least we only need to buy toilet paper once a year, but I still cannot completely get used to it being around all over the house.
What do you think of using toilet paper all the time for everything? Do you also do it or do you prefer tissues just like me?
