The toilet paper apocalypse. Who knew this was coming!!! As we started talking amongst ourselves, some American expatriates and I came up with some TP alternatives:
So.. In Mexico, some areas can’t flush their toilet paper anyway, so they don’t have to worry about clogging their stools. I had the horror of experiencing this when I went to a small beach town and honestly… it wasn’t that bad!
Here are some alternatives that are available on Amazon.com last I checked:
Napkins & Paper Towels
Flushable Wipes – PLEASE DON’T FLUSH THEM! I did this and it cost me $1000s in plumbing fees those things are NOT meant to be flushed!
Reusable Items – This sounds gross as I type it but if times get desperate we gotta do what we gotta do
Bidet – It’s available on Amazon and Home Depot, be careful about the settings. Tried one and it felt like my skin was coming off!
Baby Squirt Bottle – if you’ve had kids you know which one I’m talking about, lol! It’s the post-labor squirt bottle.
Well, there you have it. We have about 4 packages of TP and our new bidet. I think we’ll be cool :).
