  • How Much Toilet Paper Do You Have At Home?

    Here is an easy way to compute how long your present supply of toilet paper will last you. The first option is based on just one person. Adjust the setting to the number of rolls of TP you have on hand and the number of toilt visits per day to get your correct settings. If there are more than 1 person in the house, use the Advanced option... Here is the link that you can use to check out how long your toilet paper supply will last you...

    Nice find Ray, Looks like the wife and I are fine for at least a month according to the settings. Sure wish some people would think a bit more before acting all crazy and like they are the only ones that are important. I hope everyone here is doing okay and that we all come out of this fine in the next few weeks or months. Take care one and all and best wishes to you and your extended families.

      Thanks, Pat! That was something that they were showing on our local news last night and I grabbed the link to it and decided to send it to a lot of people and also post it here for all to make use of. We here in San Antonio, have been put on lock down as of midnight tonight... Except for getting out to get food, medical problems, gasoline for our cars, medicine refills, stuff like that. So we are joining other parts of the country who are doing the same thing for awhile until they can see when this virus is going to peak out. If hot weather is an inhibiter of it, then it should die this week here because we are going into 2-3 days of 90 degree temps! Die, Virus, Die! Stay well and all follow our CDC guidelines in combatting this virus!

        For your information and edification! Enquiring minds want to know.....

        HISTORY OF TOILET PAPER -
        I’LL BET THERE IS A LOT OF INFO HERE THAT YOU DID NOT KNOW . . . . . OR ALSO DIDN’T WANT TO KNOW.

        Sometimes it's good to read something that makes you smile!:-)

        I know that you have always been curious, so now you'll know.

        1. The first recorded use of toilet paper was in 6th Century China.

        2. By the 14th Century, the Chinese government was mass-producing it.

        3. Packaged toilet paper wasn't sold in the United States until 1857.

        4. Joseph Gayety, the man who introduced packaged TP to the U.S. had his name printed on every sheet.

        5. Global toilet paper demand uses nearly 30,000 trees every day.

        6. That's 10 million trees a year.

        7. It wasn't until 1935 that a manufacturer was able to promise Splinter-Free Toilet Paper.

        8. Seven percent of Americans admit to stealing rolls of toilet paper in hotels.

        9. Americans use an average of 8.6 sheets of toilet paper per trip to the bathroom.

        10. The average roll has 333 sheets.

        11. Historically, what you use to wipe depended on your income level.

        12. In the middle ages they used something called a gompf stick which was just an actual stick used to scrape.

        13. Wealthy Romans used wool soaked in rose water and French royalty used lace.

        14. Other things that were used before toilet paper include: Hay, corn cobs, sticks, stones, sand, moss, hemp, wool, husks, fruit peels, Sears & Roebuck & Montgomery Wards catalogs, ferns, sponges, seashells, knotted ropes, and broken pottery (ouch!).

        15. 70-75% of the world still doesn't use toilet paper because it is too expensive or there is not sufficient plumbing.

        16. In many Western European countries, bidets are seen as more effective and preferable to toilet paper.

        17. Coloured toilet paper was popular in the U.S. until the 1940s.

        18. The reason toilet paper disintegrates so quickly when wet is that the fibers used to make it are very short.

        19. On the International Space Station, they still use regular toilet paper but it has to be sealed in special containers and Compressed.

        20. During Desert Storm, the U.S. Army used toilet paper to camouflage their tanks.

        21. In 1973 Johnny Carson caused a toilet paper shortage. He said as a joke that there was a shortage, which there wasn't, until everyone believed him and ran out to buy up the supply. It took three weeks for some stores to get more stock. (Which might explain now why it is taking us as long to re-stock it during this virus!)

        22. There is a contest sponsored by Charmin to design and make wedding dresses out of toilet paper. The winner gets $2,000.

        23.. There was a toilet paper museum in Wisconsin, The Madison Museum of Bathroom Tissue, but it closed in 2000.

        24. The museum once had over 3,000 rolls of TP from places all over the world, including The Guggenheim, Ellis Island, and Graceland.

        25. There is still a virtual toilet paper museum called Nobody's Perfect.

        26. In 1996, President Clinton passed a Toilet Paper Tax of 6 cents per roll, which is still in effect today. Obama tried to triple that but the House wouldn't pass it.

        27. The Pentagon uses, on average, 666 rolls of toilet paper per day.

        28. The most expensive toilet paper in the world is from Portuguese brand Renova.

        29. Renova is three-ply, perfumed, costs $3 per roll and comes in several colors including black, red, blue and green.

        30. The CEO of Renova came up with the idea for black toilet paper while he was at a Cirque du Soleil show.

        31. Beyonce uses only red Renova toilet paper.

        32. Kris Jenner uses only the black Renova toilet paper.

        33. If you hang your toilet paper so you can pull it from the bottom, you're considered more intelligent than someone who pulls it from the top. (Wonder how this was determined?)

        34. Koji Suzuki, a Japanese horror novelist best known for writing The Ring, had an entire novel printed on a single roll of toilet paper.

        35. The novel takes place in a public bathroom and the entire story runs approximately three feet long.

        36. When asked what necessity they would bring to a desert island, 49% of people said toilet paper before food.

        37. Queen Elizabeth II wipes her royal bottom with silk handkerchiefs. Wonder if the royal chambermaid gets to wash those?? Yeacht sure wouldnt want that job!

          Now, wait a Cottonelle-pickin' minute Ray. What kind of thing is that site you cited?
          There's NO mention of how many men or women are in the house. Fathers of daughters KNOW that the women use far more toilet paper than men (it's just a 'given').
          I had two boys and two girls (plus the wife) and we went through one roll per day. Just sayin'. - Dave

                  If you are running out go to CVS and buy a pack of gum. The receipt for that should last you at least 2 days.

                    Dan, Nice memory and RIP Mr. Whipple.

                    Dave, That commercial is too funny and sharing that with a bunch of others so Thank You.

                    Derbird, So right about CVS, just got a receipt from them that could be a 3 day if you conserve.

                    You guys are great, Thanks for sharing and help ease the tensions. I hope everyone here is holding on and
                    are doing well as we shelter in place and try to slow this down. Stay safe and don't take any risks.
