Re: Toilet Paper!

Practical Sailor has a TP test this month.

Best Marine Toilet Papers - Practical Sailor Print Edition Article

The big take aways are:
1. No Kleenex in the head compartment. Guests may think this is flushable.
2. There are single plies so comfy 2-plies are not needed. I've succeed in sneaking one of these into the house, replacing a thick 2-ply as an expereiment, and no one noticed! That never would have happened with a cheap single ply.

How very "Demolition Man" of you.


A house is but a boat so poorly built and so firmly run aground you would never try to refloat it.

You could have just told us the conclusion.

The thing to me is that in traveling you get to chose paper all the time. The bottom line is that single ply is likely to always be a safe system bet.

Re: Toilet Paper!

Our heads flush everything that goes in 99% of the time. the only time we had a problem was as a result of someone trying to flush a female product. My wife put a trash can in the guest head for that purpose. Recently, I noticed a pervasive odor in the area of the forward staterooms. It took a while for me to find the cause, but it turned out to be that one (or more?) of our guests had taken to using the trash can as a used TP receptacle. Nasty!

Re: Toilet Paper!

if one has a smuch ocd with housecleaning inside boat a sone does with the alleged clutter outside the boat, there would be no odor of old tp in a bag, as those should be attended to daily with the daily chores.
i find the ones complaining of stink are those who donot dispo their garbage on a daily basis, hence the odor of filth.
as i donot place my tp down the hole, but i do place it into a bag to be removed to the public disposal site daily, i find no odor of any kind of filth in my living on board and cruising full time boat-- even when i return from some hours outside in other locales.
ps..i been doing just this since 1990. it is nothing difficult, and becomes a part of daily routine quite readily.

Re: Toilet Paper!

We have bidet sprayers (as shown above) fitted to each of our heads which are plumbed into our fresh water system. Honestly, I can't believe all cruising boats haven't such systems. Then only a few squares of TP is needed to dry off (reducing plugged heads) ... AND you haven't a dirty a** all day long!

Toilet paper followed by baby wipe.. both in bin.. baby wipe cancels odours.. and as Zee says.. empty it now and then..

Re: Toilet Paper!

those with watermakers may choose to spray they booties, but those with limited tankage need to figure out a different way--perhaps a liter bottle with fresh water if available, with 1 tsp vinegar added to keep your pH proper.... and then a baby wipee.... ha ha ha ha ha
or, change your tp receptacle frequently. you gotta do that more often than your annual bath.
helpful hint--if you use your double ply tp as on land, and place into a smallish bag, then you dont have the need to keep the bag until full, say , until your next annual bath... the normal use of tp will also [prevent mutiny when the poo is very frequent and runny. imagine wiping montys revenge with your hand due to limitations on tp use h aha h aha ha ha MUTINY... no wonder you guys cannot find a lady with whom to sail. ha h aha ha h a you all answered your own crew issues in this thread.. ha h ah aha ha
as for language in this thread--it iS a sh***y subject, and it iS difficult to keep preschoolers in line about that kind of stuff..they get so excited.
