Dealing with Toilet Paper can be a conundrum.
Matthew Kitson spent a few months traveling around in South America and stumbled into the most perplexing bathroom quandary ever to face the traveling public: what to do with the toilet paper after you’ve done with it (or what to do if there’s no toilet paper to begin with!)
So he decided to make an aptly named website so you don’t ever have to ask “where do I put the paper”:
Tubeless toilet paper rolls
The toilet paper roll is about to undergo its biggest change in 100 years: going tubeless. On Monday, Kimberly-Clark, one of the world’s biggest makers of household paper products, will begin testing Scott Naturals Tube-Free toilet paper at Walmart and Sam’s Club stores throughout the Northeast. If sales take off, it may introduce the line nationally and globally — and even consider adapting the technology into its paper towel brands.
The Creative Colors Of Butt Cleanliness
Paper makers Renova say their psychologically trained counsellors can match colours, textures and even the thickness of various loo rolls to individual clients.
Glow in the dark toilet paper
Do you stumble around in the bathroom at night when you don’t want to wake up your significant other with the light? Well, no more! Say hello to glow-in-the-dark toilet paper.

Perfect for your next power outage
Surely with this technological breakthrough, humanity has finally reached the pinnacle of a new and great scientific age. For years man has struggled with wiping his butt in darkness. But no more. Glow In The Dark Toilet Paper has arrived. Surely it is reverse engineered alien technology.
The Other Way Around Would be More Impressive…
We’re not too sure what to think about this 1,300 lbs piece of machinery by Tokyo-based Nakabayashi. It takes paper waste from an office and turns it into toilet paper: “The toilet paper machine is able to produce two rolls per hour from around 1,800 sheets (or 7.2kg) of used A4-sized paper”. Seems like a whole lot of machine overkill. What’s the footprint of that machine and how much toilet paper should it produce before it compensate for that? More details after the jump…
Cleanliness at a high cost.
Here’s something for you to ponder the next time you’re in the bathroom: American’s love for soft toilet paper is ecologically hard on forests!
… fluffiness comes at a price: millions of trees harvested in North America and in Latin American countries, including some percentage of trees from rare old-growth forests in Canada. Although toilet tissue can be made at similar cost from recycled material, it is the fiber taken from standing trees that help give it that plush feel, and most large manufacturers rely on them.
These are actually toilet paper dispensers. You stick a roll of toilet paper through the back, and pull a few squares out the nozzle.
