I read many years ago that the “proper” way to hang toilet paper is with the flap hanging down — after all, this is how all the best hotels do it, right? As a consequence of reading this vital piece of information, I became really anal about my toilet paper rolls. So anal that if I see the end being dispensed from under the roll, I’ll take it out and fix it so that the paper hangs over the roll.
I do this even if I am at a public facility. Or even at another person’s home. Call the bathroom etiquette cops now!
However, I also know that there exists a group who insists that TP should be hung the other way.
Now, there may be a solution to the eternal debate: a rotatable toilet paper holder.
Why haven’t I thought of this before? The best ideas always seem so simple, don’t they?
And to prove that this isn’t just a silly concept, here is the actual European patent page for the product.
