  • I always put it over, but it's an OCD thing for me. Kind of like how everything has to be hung facing the same direction in the closet (including pants and skirts) and how the bathroom rug has to be lined up with the edge of the third tile...not in the middle or at the edge of the fourth lol.

  • Touching the wall is less hygienic than not touching the wall. There is more change of germs from the toilet etc being on the wall. So since it is easy to avoid touching it by keeping the roll over, and besides it seems easier to grab the paper, I keep it over.

  • My sister always puts hers under, but I always put mine over. have never heard of anyone worrying about it hitting the wall. IDK
    I just think it's easier to grab if it's going over. LOL

  • Does not matter to me how the TP rolls as long as some one in the family puts in on the holder when it  needs to be instead of leaving a speck of TP to not have to replace the TP. That is what is my pet peeve- leaving an empty roll on the holder and the new one on the counter by the sink. How hard is it to put the TP on the holder?????

  • I always put mine over. Not for any specific purpose. My mom did it too.
