    HISTORY OF TOILET PAPER



    I know that you have always been curious, so now you'll know.

    2. By the 14th Century, the Chinese government was mass-producing it.



    3.. Packaged toilet paper wasn't sold in the United States until 1857.



    4. Joseph Gayety, the man who introduced packaged TP to the U.S. had his name printed on every sheet.

    12. In the middle ages they used something called a gompf stick which was just an actual stick used to scrape.



    13. Wealthy Romans used wool soaked in rose water and French royalty used lace.



    14. Other things that were used before toilet paper include: Hay, corn cobs, sticks, stones, sand, moss, hemp, wool, husks, fruit peels,
    ferns, sponges, seashells, knotted ropes, and broken pottery (ouch!).



    15. 70-75% of the world still doesn't use toilet paper because it is too expensive or there is not sufficient plumbing.
    16. In many Western European countries, bidets are seen as more effective and preferable to toilet paper.



    17. Coloured toilet paper was popular in the U.S. until the 1940s.



    18. The reason toilet paper disintegrates so quickly when wet is that the fibers used to make it are very short.



    19. On the International Space Station, they still use regular toilet paper but it has to be sealed in special containers and Compressed



    20. During Desert Storm, the U.S. Army used toilet paper to camouflage their tanks.



    21. In 1973 Johnny Carson caused a toilet paper shortage. He said as a joke that there was a shortage, which there wasn't, until everyone believed him and ran out to buy up the supply. It took three weeks for some stores to get more stock.



    22. There is a contest sponsored by Charmin to design and make wedding dresses out of toilet paper. The winner gets $2,000.



    23.. There was a toilet paper museum in Wisconsin, The Madison Museum of Bathroom Tissue, but it closed in 2000.

    25. There is still a virtual toilet paper museum called Nobody's Perfect.

    31. Beyonce uses only red Renova toilet paper.



    32. Kris Jenner uses only the black Renova toilet paper.



    33. If you hang your toilet paper so you can pull it from the bottom, you're considered more intelligent than someone who pulls it from the top. (Wonder how this was determined?)

    A little more info on Gayetty:
    1857: New Yorker Joseph Gayetty introduced the first packaged Toilet Tissue in the United States. The Gayette Firm, located in New Jersey, produced and sold a package of 500 sheets selling for $0.50 It was named “Therapeutic Paper” and served as a medical paper. It contained an abundance of aloe to help cure sores.

    In "Open Range" Robert Duvall is very excited when Kevin Costner brings a box of these back to camp... and runs straight to the bushes.

    @Urinal Cake Whoever heard of Renova toilet paper before now? I've never known of such a thing. What's so great about it?

    Err. No 37. I can assure you that is completely wrong. She has her own toilet paper with a crest embossed on it. It’s very soft too.
