(WARNING! THIS POST IS A BIT OF FUN AND FULL OF OVERSHARES ;)
At the Hello Blogger Events blogger meet up last weekend, we talked very seriously about the subject of toilet paper folding or scrunching. I truly don't understand how people have time to fold, or how it could ever be as effective as a full hand scrunch! I found that on discussion of this with my girlfriends, people have some very strong views as to which side they are on!
Lisa from Renovating Italy said that her Nanna, Ivy, used to always use 9 sheets of toilet paper; and that this was the only way to wipe. This got my thinking, especially as we have just had to get the plumbers in to unblock our toilet. Their diagnosis of our plumbing issues: I use too much toilet paper! So here is the test, I pulled the roll down to where I normally pull too- and I use 5 sheets per wipe. Sounds pretty tame to me considering Ivy's dedication to the 9 sheet processes!
I did try the 9 sheets and definitely thought that if adopted this for furture, I would be super clean but go through lots more toilet rolls (and probably have the plumber in again soon too!)! Although are there more wipes to my 5 sheet technique??? The questions are endless!! ;)
Regardless of the sheets, the true question is- are you a scruncher or folder. Check out these two comparison pictures taken with same amount of sheets:
Same amount of paper used for the scrunch and the fold picture.
So what is your verdict and why do you do it that way? Are you a sophisticated folder or a pragmatic scruncher (clearly I'm scrunch biased!)??
