Toilet roll etiquette?
Did I miss something when I was growing up, did my parents neglect to tell me the proper toilet roll etiquette?
Is there a right way round and a wrong way round to have your toilet roll hanging?
I prefer mine to have the end hanging away from the wall, not close up against it as it’s easier to grab without stubbing my fingers on the wall when half asleep or a bit tipsy, but from observation and my girlfriends instance on turning them round the other way, maybe this is poor toilet roll etiquette?Posted 8 years agoOllyMember
GAHHHH TOILET ROLLS!!
my old housemates couldnt seem to be bothered to slip it onto the holder, instead sitting it ontop, so when you pulled it it came off.
we now dont have a holder, my current housemates always put the roll on the cistern, behind “one”, but this strikes me as a sh!t idea (pun intended) when there is a windowsill at bog roll level directly infront of you.

Poindexter why don’t you just get her to wipe your arse for you?
Even I have a ‘comfort threshold’ when it comes to making demands of minimum wage staff.
Plus, my current housekeeper sports so much of Elizabeth Duke’s finest wares on her fingers that she ain’t going anywhere near my balloon knot.Posted 8 years ago
…and now the science.
It is all to do with how you orientate the paper between tearing it off and applying it to your ass… it has a nap you see, like the baize a snooker table.Posted 8 years ago
So if you have the loo roll “tail to the wall” and invert the sheet during transit the nap is facing the wrong way and it smears rather than removes. In this case you need the roll “tail to the room”.
I personally am not an “inverter”, so for me the optimum hanging position for economical cleaning is “wall side”.PikeBN14Member

What about Izal then – should the sheets hang down or point up?
Ha ha, Izal, saw some of that in a little tea rooms in the Peak District at the weekend, they had a sort of mueseum shelf in there with loads of old tobaco stuff and curiously some bog roll too!!Posted 8 years agowhytetrashMember
Actually it varies how tight you are! Here’s the reason if it hangs against the wall you find the roll lasts significantly longer than if it hangs out…try it especially if you have kids!
Can’t remember where I read this…though some obscure ceramics trade mag in uni I think!(studied ceramic science and engineering)Posted 8 years agoavdave2Member
I’m sure if you trace your girlfriends ancestry you’re going to find some trailer trash not too far back. If she carries it on then it’s time to leave. If you let it carry on then it’s only a matter of time before a knitted doll appears on the spare roll and a specially shaped rug goes around the toilet. You have been warned.Posted 8 years agoMrNuttMember
you bunch of freaks! we have a hole in the wall next to the toilet with a small bell over it, when one has finish their business you simply have to ring the bell and present your posterior to the cavity where Edwin Collins our pet fecal fed giraffe ecologically removes any overshot in a 100% biodegradable manner. 100% natural.Posted 8 years agomidlifecrashesSubscriber
I solved this problem at midlife towers by the simple expedient of always buying Andrex “Puppies on a Roll” paper. When hanging the correct way, away from the wall, the cute little puppies are revealed. The puppies are only printed on one side so a mistake becomes obvious.Posted 8 years ago
