    you have to be joking right? stealing toilet paper from a public loo? this is theft!

    i can help you reduce the cost of your toilet paper bill by exactly 50%! think of it, a guaranteed 50% saving every week, month and year on your loo rolls.
    all you need to do is to use BOTH sides of the paper, this reduces your cost by 50%

    i guess that using both sides of the paper could be seen as green and environmentally friendly also


    if you want to save 75%, then just split the 2 ply tissue into 2 separate sheets - a whopping 75% saved!

    I used to steel a bog roll a day when I was in University and help myself to free ketchup sachee and salt n pepper in the canteen! I'm sure if I went back now I could find a lot more. Basically covered my tuition fee

    ***** SERIOUS HEALTH WARNING! ****

    Using toilet tissue to blow your nose is not the cleverest thing to do health wise. I used to for years, and it can cause serious even fatal health issues.

    Have you noticed the huge fine cloud of particles that become air bourne when you unroll and tear off bog roll? You probably wont notice it under normal lighting circumstances.

    Everyone must have noticed it under bright sunlight. Or powerfull electric light. These particles we see with the naked eye, are only the larger ones. Their is real danger in the ones we cannot see with the naked eye. Especially those below 10 um in size.

    What is the natural thing to do before one blows ones nose? Take a deep breath. Typically while holding tissue near face. Then blow nose. In so doing you are inhaling vast amounts of these air bourne particles / fibers.

    Any one in the construction industry, or manufacturing (where dust is present ) will tell you that dust inhalation of any type, for any duration is strictly banned on health grounds. A Fairly recent thing, but for very good reason.

    Not only is it potentially irritant, but any dust. Even seemingly benign dust can, through long term exposure potentially be carcinogenic, and or cause very debilitating, often fatal medical conditions. Including but not exclusivley: Asthma (and or exacerbation of pre existing), causation of mesothelioma, lung, esophageal, gastrointestinal, laryngeal, and pharyngeal cancers.

    Typically, roughly half of many of the air bourne paper particles will be smaller than 10 um. Meaning that they readily cross into the blood stream, thereby travelling to all organs. These small particles go to the lungs, where they have access to the blood circulation.

    That Is the primary function of the lungs. That is to act as a primary interface between our bodies and the outside world. This increases the risk of chronic cell mutation at any site in the body. These particles will carry with them whatever they are compounded with. Carcinogens, toxins or not. - See later.

    SHAPE IS IMPORTANT:

    What is increasingly, over the decades becoming acknowledged among the medical and scientific comunity, despite much industry and vested interest suppression, is that fibres of many substances not just asbestos, appear to have a far greater potential to cause cancer than particulates of other shapes, eg spherical.

    WHAT IS PAPER? - A COMPOSITE, NONE THE LESS: PRIMARILY A FIBER!

    Toilet paper, as does most paper, unless it is unbleached, non - dyed / inked / printed, and dioxin free. Contains by virtue of its manufacture other dangerous, proven carcinogens and or other substances that can pose issue to health.

    These substaces are incorporated into the fibers that we breathe. There by allowing the active transport of them throughout our bodies. Bleaches inks and dyes are all well known carcingens as is dioxin all found in toilet paper. If you want to know what dioxin does to you Google: Dioxin, Ukrainian opposition leader Viktor Yushchenko. - An extreeme example. - None the less eventually proven, and true.

    I am not trying to suggest that anyone should stop using bog roll. Or, that if you have used it for blowing your nose on occasion, that you will get cancer or ill. These issues are likley due to long term / chronic exposure.

    Only that you should use it for its intended purpose, wiping your bum. Avoid breathing in the dust. Using it long term as I did to blow my nose, can cause problems. It hugeley exacerbated my hayfever / rihinitis, and induced / exacerbated my asthma. - Near instant reaction. In the season, Which is why I looked into it. In the season, I could often get through three or more toilet rolls or big boxes of tissues a day. If you don't belive any of the above Google it!

    To blow my nose, I use proper tissues, - expensive, or as a cheaper alternative, Kithcen roll (what I use most, as I am a cheap skate ; ) ). Both appear to shed dramatically less fibers / dust.

    On a humerous note, re the subject: Toilet Paper! Listen to this :

    You Tube: The Macc Lads - Thinking In The Dark, Link: : If you are easily offended, or dont like swearing, dont Listen. They are arguably the most viley crude, totaly non PC band ever on earth. But they are bloody funny! From 1.33 mins, pertinent to thread - And Totally Cracks me up! : )

    I'm Logging out! Bye ; )

    Alternative to toilet paper! Use a fluffy pup like a certain loo roll manufacturer seems to hint at in their ads ; )

    Ever wondered why Rhodesian Ridge Backs have that chocolatey stained strip of fur going the wrong way up their backs?

    - Because Bog roll can be in short supply in parts of Africa ; )

    Get with the times people, Baby wipes are ace, 1 a pack 60 wipes (soft and strong) and only need 2 pieces loo roll to dry yourself.

    Even cheaper get a bidet fitted and hardly ever buy loo roll again.

    Baby wipes clog the sewer pipes, then you can land a hefty bill.

    Can't say I've ever had this issue. But I've never bought the cheap ones. I buy whatever they have on offer.

    With regards to clogging drains - I use nappy sacks and dispose of them in the bin.
