When you wipe after peeing how many squares of toilet paper do you use? I think I usually use about 4. My husband always complains I use too much toilet paper.

I think 2 is enough to wipe unless you are doing number 2

Rachel, I thought that too. My mother complains how I use too much tissue. Also how fast that pack that she just bought goes by. I roll out maybe 5-6 squares to wipe front. So, this morning I used 2 squares. Suprisingly,it was enough. I didn't feel any leak afterwards. Just try it.

Lol, I use quite a bit more than that each trip! Probably about 6-8 squares. Your husband doesnt even have to wipe when he pees, so it evens out!! What does he expect???? For you to use 1 square each trip? Tell him you will start doing that when he uses only 1 for #2!!!!! Ha ha!

Toilet Paper - Toilet Paper
Maybe three then? you are so funny! I laugh everytime I see one of your discussions like this!! I know you will love this website! Check it out! http://www.toiletpaperworld.com/tpw/encyclopedia/navigation/funfacts.htm It states this:What is the average number of toilet tissue sheets a person uses in one day? On average, consumers use 8.6 sheets per trip - a total of 57 sheets per day. That's an annual total of 20,805 sheets. (Charmin)

I don't really know how much I use, but I know I use more than four. I don't want to get anything on my hand & I just know using only 4 wouldn't be enough to prevent that. I decided to go check and pretend I was taking paper off the roll to use, & it would appear I usually use 5 to 7 sheets. I don't think that's wasteful. Even though I always wash my hands afterwards, the thought of getting my hands dirty completely disgusts me. It figures a man would say 4 is too much. He's got an entirely different set-up!

I haven't really thought about this, but I think like you I must use at least four or five sheets. I think my husband thinks like yours and will say that I too use too many sheets, but I like to wipe properly and feel that is enough toilet paper ot do so with.
