What do you use when you run out of TP?

In my house we use paper towels or baby wipes...when we're desperate we've used coffee filters lol. How about you? What's the weirdest thing you've used in a pinch?

  • I've never had to improvise like that (yet!) but this store that I worked at had our entire system messed up bc someone used a t-shirt when the restroom ran out of TP and then tried to flush it. It was a huge mess! UGH!

  • It happened once, at night. We used baby wipes. Now we stock up on toilet paper at BJs!

  • I had to pee before getting into the shower once and no TP! I used the panties I had just taken off! Hey desperate times call for desperate measures. Now if it had been #2 then I probably would have had to waddle to the kitchen and get napkins.

  • baby wipes, my underwear I just took off (like poster ahead of me), I even used washclothes. I know that sounds gross but I rinse them out and then put them in the white hamper to be bleached anyways.
    Once at a college party I pooped (didn't know I had too!) and there was no tp around so I used a sock that was lieing on the floor. I was just there partying and knew I would never go back!! sorry for the sucker that found it in the tub the next morning. but more sorry for my ass that had to get wiped with it.

  • OK this is totally gross but my fiance's mom does the house flip thing(buy a crappy house and make it nice to sell for profit) Anyways there wasn't any TP but there was a rag/old towel. My fiance pooped and couldn't find anything so he used the towel.
    I don't run out of TP, I always buy the jumbo pack and get a new one when we have like 2 of the 4-packs left. (jumbo pack comes w/ a few, like 6, 4 packs inside of the bigger wrapper)

  • LOL I luckily haven't run out yet! It's something I am paranoid about so I usually buy some TP every week when I get my groceries! If I am in a public bathroom I will run to the next stall, pants around my ankles! One time it took me 3 tries to find one with TP! HAHA
