Wellness Shot: Toilet Paper Alternatives


Having trouble getting toilet paper? Check out these doctor-approved alternatives!

According to NBC Bay Area, tissues, paper towels, other types of wipes, and even coffee filters are acceptable toilet paper alternatives as long as they’re clean. Remember don’t flush anything other than toilet paper, keep a trash can nearby for non-flushable products.

Pieces of cloth are also acceptable TP alternatives, just wash in hot water with detergent, like you would if you use cloth diapers for your baby. You can keep doing this once we get back into a more normal swing of things too, save resources!

They also said you could keep a glass of water for cleaning but can you imagine exactly how that would work? I can’t! My method is a combination of cloth and paper and we have cut our Charmin squeezing way down!
