Is this a macerator or a stinky slinky thread?

Why the question? They both dispose of toilet paper quite well.

Ok, so we know there in no definitive answer to which TP is best. Now the most important question: Roll so it unrolls from top or bottom?

I prefer looking at the top versus anything that starts from the bottom/rear.

I am sure glad you asked this question. Maybe we can get this settled as well. MY DW is constantly on my case all the time because 50% of the time I get it wrong. She insists the proper way is it should unroll from the bottom. I install the roll however it happens to be when I install it.

Don,

Well you tell your DW that she is dead wrong!

It MUST unroll from the top. That way it is easily accesible even if you spin the roll any direction.

YEAH Right!! You can tell his wife shes wrong. BWAHAHA! I have a thing that washes your backside. As far as TP is concerned, we use Costco Kirkland brand. Its cheap and falls apart long before you are done using it.

I agree will Dr4Film. It MUST unroll from the top. It sounds like an engineering product requirements specification. However, in my worldly travels all of the high hotels that I have stayed at always have had the paper unroll from the top. The end was always folded into a nice design or imprinted with some type of hotel seal. I never really paid attention until one day I noticed at a friends house and the paper was the other way. I guess they did not read the fine print. Even it they did who really cares? When your in that position as long as there is paper the job MUST get done. Damn those engineering requirements again!

Toilet Paper

Look at how the TP is in fancy Hotels, always on the top, with the edges turned back so it is in a point in front. If it is a real fancy Hotel there may even be a fancy seal to show it is fresh....

Yep, that is how it must be done to make it look professional.

Now, what the towels.... Single fold, or thirds, with hand towel and wash cloth (not rag) centered or at the side of the towel....

Then we can tackle the more important things like the toothpaste tube. Oh what dilemmas we face that can either make or brake a union of the better halves....

First things first. Does it pass the finger test? Last thing I want in the RV or at home is to be wiping and have my finger go right through the TP and plow into a glob of warm poo. How do they even get away with putting that cheap stuff on the market.

The correct answer depends if you have little children or grandchildren. If you do you install it so it unrolls from the back, so when the little ones go in the bathroom and spin the roll over and over again the tp stays rolled up on the roll and not all over the bathroom floor. Worked with my kids and now with my grandkids.
