Do you bunch or wrap? :D (tmi?)

DH and I are in a heated debate about toilet paper technique. When you wipe when going to the bathroom, do you bunch up the toilet paper in a big ball or do you wrap it around your whole hand? He wraps, I bunch. He thinks no one bunches, but I told him proudly I've never had anything (yuk) get on my hands... and I still wash anyway!!! Then I called him out on how I notice I don't hear the faucet all the time before he leaves the bathroom. (EWWWW!) But he wraps it around his hand a few times and has this very complicated technique... first of all, wouldn't your fingers break through that much easier? YUK! This leads to another debate on TP - he likes the thin 1-ply junk & I like quilted. This just reinforces my point - wouldn't your fingers poke through THAT MUCH EASIER on 1 ply, so-thin-you-can-read-thru-it paper?? AAAGGHH!!!

  • You're both doing it wrong. Bunching makes for inefficient hand coverage, wrapping is inefficient toilet paper usage (honestly if you're worried about getting it on the back of your hand you're doing something else wrong). I fold it, then apparently sometimes proceed with the origami.

  • I do a "Jacob's Ladder" thing, unfold and fold over left to right, not around my the front of my hand and not haphazardly, just making sure I get enough distance between my hand and...... well... you know!! LOL!
