We all know that toilet paper is a useful household product. But did you know that it can be used for other things as well? Here are 10 alternative purposes for toilet paper:
Toilet paper is a soft paper product used to clean human waste from the body.
Invented in 1857 by Seth Wheeler, toilet paper was initially sold as rolls of toilet tissue for home use. In the early 1960s, it became commercially available as single sheets and was quickly adopted by most households in North America and Western Europe. In many other countries such as Africa, China, and India, people still prefer to use water instead of wiping with toilet paper.
Toilet paper is commonly sold in rolls of around 4 feet (122 cm) long and 2 inches (50 mm) wide at its widest point with each roll having approximately 200 sheets per roll depending on how many sheets are needed per use (a person can use up to 10 sheets).
String and safety pins
- Toilet paper can be used to make a string! Just tear off a piece of toilet paper, roll it up and tie it in the middle with some tape to keep it together. You can use this for all sorts of things such as tying your shoelaces or hanging pictures on the wall.
- Similar to making a string, you can also make safety pins from toilet paper! Cut out two small rectangles from the middle of a larger sheet and fold them in half so they look like triangles, then put each one through another triangle from opposite sides so that they’re touching at their points This will create two little squares which you can use for pinning clothes together or whatever else you need a safety pin for!
- You may be familiar with using pencils as paper clips but did you know that there’s another alternative? Paper clips are actually made out of wire bent into shape and covered with plastic coating; if we were able to remove all this unnecessary material then we could just use plain old uncoated wire instead! Well, guess what? That’s exactly what happens when we tear apart some TP into little pieces—it becomes very easy to separate these individual strands because they’re so thin compared with our usual thickened versions.
Magic erasers are the most useful cleaning tool in your home. You can use them to clean stainless steel appliances, laminate counters, and white walls. They will help you remove stains from carpets, spot clean furniture, and kill germs around the house.
But that’s not all! These magical sponges are also great for cleaning windows, floors, and walls too! That’s why they’re one of our top recommendations when it comes to making your home sparkling clean. The only limit is your imagination: how will you use this power sponge?
A paper napkin is a piece of paper that has been folded into a rectangle, then rolled up and placed in a wrapper. It’s used to wipe your mouth and face, as well as your hands. Paper napkins are handily disposable, making them ideal for eating messy foods (like hamburgers) or ones with lots of sauces on them in public places. They’re also helpful for those who don’t want to carry around wet wipes all day long!
You can use toilet paper to clean your ears. The sensation is a little weird at first, but it’s very effective!
- Use a few sheets of toilet paper folded into a soft pad.
- Gently press the pad into your ear canal, rotating and pushing as far into the canal as possible without causing pain (which indicates you’re pushing too hard).
- Once the paper has become saturated with wax or other debris from your ear, pull it out slowly. You’ll be amazed by how much dirt was hiding in there!
You can also use a paper towel instead of tissue for this process—the texture works just as well for removing wax or other gunk from inside those odd-shaped holes that lead to our heads.
- To remove makeup: Spread a few pieces of toilet paper around the area where you want to apply your makeup remover, then pour some on top. Gently wipe away until all of your makeup is gone.
- To remove oil from your face, hands, or hair: Dampen a few sheets of toilet paper by running them under some water for about 30 seconds and then wring them out. Rub the dampened sheets over any oily areas until they are clean (try not to get water into the eyes). You can also cut up an old t-shirt and use that instead of regular toilet paper; this will give you even more exfoliation power.
You can use first-aid tape to secure bandages, splints, dressings, and catheters.
It’s also perfect for taping IVs in place and keeping them dry.
- Use a toilet paper tube to clean the dust off of the shelves. When you’re cleaning your home, it can be difficult to reach all the items on your high shelves with a traditional duster or cloth. Instead, use a toilet paper tube as your duster by wrapping the ends of it with tissue paper (or any other soft material) and stuffing it in the tube. Then, attach one end of an elastic band to each end of the toilet paper roll and stretch the band over one end so that it holds everything together. Finally, use this homemade duster to get into those hard-to-reach places!
Toilet paper in Kitchen
Toilet paper is a great tool for cleaning up messes in the kitchen. It can be used to clean countertops, appliances, and even your hands! You may be asking yourself why you would want to clean with something that touches your rear end. Well, let us tell you why:
- It’s cheap and easy to use
- Leaves no residue behind (unless you’re using Charmin)
Toilet paper is also effective at removing stains on countertops, which means that if you spill salsa or ketchup on your table while making dinner (or watching Netflix), then there’s no need to panic—you have some TP handy!
If you want to make some money, or just bring some joy into someone’s life, making potpourri is a great business. You can use any kind of toilet roll (or even a plastic bag) to package your product.
What you’ll need:
- 1/2 cup baking soda
- 3 tablespoons sea salt
- 2 tablespoons dried rose petals (or any other flower petals)
- 20 drops of essential oils of your choice (lavender, orange blossom, etc.)
