Frum Toilet Paper

99 reasons why I love being Orthodox….


orthodox toilet paper

…but this ain’t one.

Here’s my big question. Why does pre-cut toilet paper exist? Tissues are easy, and comfortable. If you want to be hardcore about toilet paper feeling different than any kind of paper, then grab a hacksaw and cut an old-fashioned roll in half.

The only possible conclusion I can come to is this: You waste less toilet paper. Which is more environmentally-friendly, and it means we care about baal tashhit. And that is why I am Orthodox.
