That's the stuff! A little bit went a long way.

It was hard to find that picture. I had to type "gammeldags lokum papir" (old-fashioned outhouse [slang expression for a washroom] paper in Danish) to find that picture.

I could never buy those. Hubby uses a whole regular size roll when he goes, I'm scared the smaller rolls disappear cardboard and all

I've considered replacing the TP with kitchen toweling !

I can't imagine using that stuff!

I thought it was bad when my Grandmother talked about using old dress patterns and the Sears Roebuck catalog!

I wonder what became of poor old Roebuck!

When I lived in Denmark, I used that stuff to write letters.

We bought the soft stuff for at home, but still met that other stuff in public washrooms. You could hear other people doing the same thing: take a big wad and "scrub" it until it's not as "sharp".

Wow. Looks like a combination of butcher paper and a brown paper bag! Apparently our ancestors survived, we're all stiil here.

I think you'll come out ahead in the long run by installing a bidet and going commando. TP's are expensive.

i think it's time for people to learn the old boy scout maple or oak leaf/middle finger method.

Just be sure you know what poison ivy and poison oak look like.

You people! You're making this thread as good as Today's Funny.

I remember long time ago as a little city girl using my aunt's outhouse and recall the smell but not what sort of paper there was. I especially remember one trip to 'the house out back' when there was a big ol' black snake lying on the path between me and the convenience.
