    Toilet Paper Rolls...What is your preferred way to leave the end hanging?
    On the inside of the roll?
    Or on the outside of the roll?


    (I'm going to be doing a Hub on it...

      Under is preferred, but nowadays I'm not picky as long as the kids just put it there after they've finished a roll!  grrrr

      Outside so it can be easily located.

      The real kicker is when the roller was not put on right and you drop it and it rolls out from under the stall!

    Outside (overhang) is better then inside (underhang).

    I wonder what God (if he exists) and obama think.

    Sorry just trying to introduce some controversy big_smile

    Overhang is the proper way to place the toilet paper on the roller. I mean after all Arlo Guthrie included it in his song Alice's Restaurant

      Great to see you're fully recovered, BP!  (Which you've probably been for some time; I do miss things on occasion.)

      As to the thread, I get to abstain for a while, having no roller.  The TP roll simply sits on one end on a bookcase shelf beside the bucket toilet in my steel storage shed otherwise known as my bedroom.  lol

    Love this forum!

    My boyfriend is pretty easy going and very laid back. 

    He doesn't care when "Hay Boy", aka, his son, drags hay all throughout the house.  Dishes could be walking over to our next door neighbor's house, and the toilet could turn brown without him noticing...but if that toilet paper is not on the outside...THAT'S WHEN HE HAS ISSUES!

    So, every time a new roll gets put on, I flip it over...watching his face turn beet red over toilet paper is fun!

    Does that make me mean?

    Seriously men...does it really matter?

    I can't leave my bedroom in the morning until my bed is made, and I can't relax at the end of the day until my lunch is prepared (for work) for the next day....

    but toilet paper? I just use it, I don't study it!

    always on the outside--the other way drives me crazy!!!

    Kathryn LJposted 7 years ago

    Definately the outside.  If someone puts it on the otherway in this household, there is an inquistition.  Stupid really, we should just be glad that its there but some how once people know it drives you crazy, it drives you even more crazy if they do it wrong.

    Isn't it amazing how the smallest annoyances can make us crazy.  I prefer over the top - if there is a design, it should hang to the front rather than having blank sheets hanging down the back and yes - it is much easier to find.

    I seen a roll dispenser over at Ikea that held six rolls at a time...all end were facing out in order for it to work right...so if someone has to have the ends facing out and they want to take control...go buy this contraption...and you will always have the ends in your favor!

    Over.  (Anyone who thinks this isn't the "right" way only has to see toilet paper ads or tv commercials - at least in the US.   lol  ) (Besides, I think it makes it easier for cats to empty the roll onto the floor with the "over" installation.  smile )

      Very good point for the cats.  My dogs like to unroll it from the over direction also.  My husband was a professional toilet paper hanger (aka Janitor, Houskeeping Manager, cleaner of Medical Clinics) and he thinks it should hang down the back so you don't see it - note: his professional opinion on the matter has him banned from performing this chore.  Now he just takes out a new roll and sits it on the counter until I hang it "over".  One has only to look at the picture of the toilet paper hanging "over" to realize that with one flick of the fingertips you can unroll a yard of TP for that handful of paper that feels so secure wadded in your hand.
