What do you do when your in the bathroom and realize there is no toilet paper?? And you cant get anywhere to get any?? I usually try to use a paper towel but if I dont have any of them I will use a wash cloth then throw it out. What do you do??

Some paper towel is harsh on the skin so I won't use it... I use Kleenex I normally have alot of that here.. But normally before going shopping I check to make sure I have enough toilet paper cause i don't want to end up not having any.. Even if there is two rolls left I still get a 24 pack or 12 pack so that I know for sure I have enough to last me for a bit.. The way people use toilet paper here is like candy..

I always try to keep extra boxes of Kleenex in the bathroom for just such occasions. I think I have 4 or 5 boxes in there right now. But if we do happen to run out of even those, we do the same thing you do....use a cloth and then throw it out.

A wash cloth is good for many things. I have a few around that are crappy ones so If I have to use one im not using a good one.

Well, lets see..Number (1) I never sit down unless I see toilet paper on the roll..Never ever.. I have a phobia about this very issue...If it was ever to happen, I would scream for whoever is in the house, and if nobody came to my rescue then I would start crying because I would feel really stupid. I might just use the underwear I have on and then give them a good washing...Hey, I've got a good idea, I will train my dogs to know where the extra paper is...I make sure I have 24 rolls in my bathroom right next to the toilet at all times...No joke.

I'll use toilet paper and baby wipes. I've had to use a washcloth before too but as a last resort. Thats the one nice thing about having a baby in the house...at least I always make sure I have baby wipes. lol

I haven't had this problem yet copperkitten as I always made sure before I go that their is toilet paper. But if I did run into that problem I would either find kleenex or a baby wipe. If no luck there, then I would run over to the sink and wash.

I'm never caught without it. I always check long before. Plus I usually have 2 rolls on hand at all times.

I have a small cupboard close to the toilet and I make sure to keep it well stocked. So If the roller is empty I can just reach into the cupboard and get anew roll. I always put a new roll on when it gets really close to the end and set the unfinished roll on the back of the toilet to be finished up before starting a new roll.

I haven't run into this problem. I make sure to always have a second new package of toilet paper in the bathroom just in case. I also make it a habit to check before I go in. Although I hate using public bathrooms I always make sure to keep kleenex in my purse or wallet just in case. AT PEACE WITHIN
