Often wondered about the hotel fold, but I see the point.

FED's tricks reminded of something done some 50 years ago, at Cultybraggan Army Camp. The toilet was known as "The Flute" because that's what it looked like. It consisted of a horizontal, two feet diameter pipe running from one end of the building to the other. The cubicles were open topped and the seats were placed over openings in the pipe. It was all flushed by a large, automatic cistern at one end, so the flow was more or less horizontal. When the cistern began to gurgle, it was best to stand up off the seat, to avoid other user's "productions", which floated serenely by, from the cistern end to the common drain at the other.

IZAL toilet paper makes quite good paper boats. And it burns...

A well timed flotilla of burning Viking boats sent on its way with the incoming tide was hilarious - as long as you weren't a "business in progress" recipient.

How we laughed...

The paper is provided so you don't have to touch the handle.

I have a relative who has several types of paper on offer in their loo. Bog standard supermarket issue rolls and a box of IZAL or something similar. I don't believe the IZAL has been touched by anybody in years. It seems similar in consistency to the grease-proofed paper I use to cook my oven chips...

In Sharjah, all IZAL did was spread the residue around and that was before any sign of the trots.

I fitted one of these when I built our new house: https://shataf.co.uk/

It's a heck of a lot more hygienic, in my view, than smearing poo around your backside with a bit of paper.

Needless to say it's name has been modified by the first "a" being changed for an "i" and the second to an "o"...

He'll be telling us next that a bidet isn't for washing your feet in.

I generally find every day is a stool day and worry a bit if it isn't...

Methodology for Loo Roll Installation

I was told many years ago, by a friend who is a hotel manager for one of the big chains, that it is a standing instruction that the loose end must always hang outwards, for the reasons given by the OP. Turning up the corners is a relatively recent innovation, brought about by mass travel, he added. I just wish more blokes would wash their hands after performing that particular function, so that it's safe to eat the peanuts on the bar

Incidentally, much can be learned about how to change a duvet by watching the hotel chambermaids performing that particular task.

Don't worry, the Labour Manifesto will be out shortly, punch a hole in one corner and hang it on a nail.

We have a shower screen that has some fancy coating to make it self-cleaning. Rather surprisingly it works very well indeed, and the screen never needs cleaning at all. Pity the same isn't true for all the other surfaces that the shower gets wet.

At Seletar in 1967 one of the ladies in the mess let slip that their loos were provided with soft toilet paper while we chaps were still having to put up with the shiny Izal variety. A complaint about this unequal treatment in the suggestions book resulted in an unsympathetic response,and we were told that we would have to continue taking the rough with the smooth!

I always thought having "Government Property " embossed was quite apt really.....

However, now we know the stuff was waterproof, an alarming thought. As we know, scattered across various areas of Wales, Scotland, Dartmoor etc, there are little packages from those bracing little strolls we participated in under the euphemism of "character building " etc.

You have to ask, was the stuff bioderegradable ?

In addition to the toilet paper (t)issue, where do my learned friends park the 'reserve' roll/packet?

Some of the houses I have visited have one of those vertical broom handle thingies capable of holding around half a dozen reloads, whereas my own facility has a rather limited floor area so I am torn between parking the spare on the top of the (low-level) cistern - unhygienic! - or on the window ledge.
As both of these locations are behind(!) the sitter (sp?), they both require some agility on the part of the user unless, during their pre-sh!te checks, one is diligent in checking the number of available sheets on the ready-roll and has the presence of mind to relocate the reserve to a temporarily more 'convenient' location.

Also, ladies have been known to carry some spare sheets in their handbag - any gents on here carry spare sheets of bog roll about their person?

And on a similar subject, what is the consensus on saving bog roll and relieving ones self in the shower - whilst using it to wash, I hasten to add! I thought everyone did it but apparently, they donít.
