I'd probably give it a go if I lived on my own.
No harm in trying.

Bellanonna Sun 03-Nov-19 12:03:31

Oh no!

SueDonim Sun 03-Nov-19 12:59:07

That's my Christmas present shopping sorted. Thanks! grin

Auntieflo Sun 03-Nov-19 13:24:52

Definitely not.

harrigran Sun 03-Nov-19 13:29:04

Absolutely not, what kind of moron dreamt that one up ?
I can see all kinds of dreadful illnesses becoming epidemic.

I would have thought that the amount of soap powder, energy to run the washing machine and drying etc, not to mention the using water first, would far out way the using of paper.
Not for me thank you.

Never, ever , revolting thought, and I live alone

If they only use it when going for a wee I really don't see the point. They could just try and use less paper if they feel that strongly. Using it when going for a dump is disgusting and what it saved on paper would more than be accounted for with boil washes and bleach etc. I sometimes feel were going back to the dark ages these days. No I won't be giving up paper but I'll try to use the minimum required.

BlueBelle Sun 03-Nov-19 14:19:54

No thanks not for me

lemongrove Sun 03-Nov-19 14:21:36

.....and a no from me too! Horrible idea.

lemongrove Sun 03-Nov-19 14:25:20

Some climate change people won’t be happy until we are living on turnips and rice ( organic of course) and planted with our own ‘manure’! The fields ploughed by oxen and our clothes woven from flax.
Yes FlexibleFriend....back to the dark ages indeed.

Maybe we should adopt the toilet shower thingy used in Middle East (its a small shower hose that sits at the side of the toilet), it is very effective and refreshing, a small flannel could then be used to dry to save toilet paper (I don't know if Arabs etc. dry). I used toilet paper to dry.

FlexibleFriend Sun 03-Nov-19 14:45:04

I'd be happy to use the attachment at the side of the loo if it was warm water but it's not.

SueDonim Sun 03-Nov-19 15:13:14

Lemongrove when we lived in tropical Africa much of the land used to grow fruit and veg was manured with human ordure. That meant anything eaten raw had to be sterilised before consumption. On my shopping days I'd have to come home and put the fruit & veg to soak in a solution of Milton. Imagine soaking and then drying a lettuce! grin

So that uses water and puts chlorine into the system, too, plus all your fresh stuff tasted vaguely of bleach. Nice. hmm

I'm a nurse. I don't really have an issue with poop. (Goodness knows I've cleaned up a lot!) I have no problem with reusable nappies or sanitary products. But I think reusable loo roll takes the biscuit!

NanKate Sun 03-Nov-19 15:28:03

Yuk 👎

Eloethan Sun 03-Nov-19 18:10:56

There must be better ways of saving resources! This is a revolting idea and, as others have said, I can't see how it can be environmentally friendly.

Urmstongran Sun 03-Nov-19 18:17:17

I had to check the date to see it wasn’t April 1st!

Urmstongran Sun 03-Nov-19 18:18:45

P.s. and we get het up here about chlorinated chicken.

Scribbles Sun 03-Nov-19 18:21:34

Oh, yeuk! No, no, never, no way, not at all under any circumstances.

That is utterly gross and vile.

PamelaJ1 Sun 03-Nov-19 18:41:52

My sister an herDH have installed a hose by their toilet.
As flexible friend has pointed out it’s cold🥶
You can get loos that squirt water up at your bottom when you have finished.
A friend stayed somewhere that had one. She and her husband decided to film it. She had to sit down to trigger the action, so she did but didn’t leap off early enough. One wet pair of trousers and a flooded floor😱.
