Toilet Paper Can You Live Without It? The Alternatives!

Stock Up On Toilet Paper

Can you survive without toilet paper? Believe it or not one of the first things off the shelves in most stores will be toilet paper.  I would advise stocking up now. How much is enough? One way is to figure out how many rolls does your family use in a week multiply by 52 weeks 2X52=104. It doesn’t take much room to store toilet paper 104 rolls is only 4 1/2 12 packs.

COSTCO has their Kirkland Signature brand 30 rolls for $19.99. If you don’t have a COSTCO nearby try Amazon,  Charmin Ultra Strong , Bath Tissue, Mega Roll, 24 Count $22.65.Toilet Paper

2: Wet Wipes/Moist Towelettes. This is the best alternative you will find. Stock up on a few packages and keep a package in your bug out bag.

3: Wet sponges, it is my understanding that this goes all the way back to the Romans.

4: A more obvious alternative is newspapers and magazines. Remember the Sears catalog in the old outhouse?

5: Corn Cob, doesn’t sound too comfortable but it was an old standby when the Sears catalog wasn’t available.

6: Mullen leaves,  Mullein is actually known as “Cowboy toilet paper.” Have you ever been out in nature and caught without the TP Mullen to the rescue. There are many other uses for Mullen in survival situations.

7:   EZ Towel TabletsToilet Paper, Another item for the bug out bag.

It allows easy transport of handkerchief size towels in small tablet form. A small amount of water results in the tablet expanding into the usable towel for wiping up or cleaning off items. One EZ Towel does the work of over 10 paper napkins. And unlike paper towels, EZ Towels are durable, absorbable, and best of all, they’re biodegradable.
