We See Some Guys Are Ditching Toilet Paper In Favor Of Reusable ‘Family Cloth’

Just when I have the feelings that I’ve seen it all, now some guys are ditching toilet paper in favor of something called a “family cloth”.

A family cloth is a piece of fabric that you would use to wipe your nether regions after a bowel movement.


There is a big difference between the family cloth and toilet paper. It’s that, while you would throw out a piece of toilet paper that you use, you would instead toss the used family cloth in the hamper to be washed and reused. What do you think of this?

If this is appealing for whatever reason, people can make the cloth themselves from old clothing they no longer wear or there are a number of options of colors and patterns on the market.

As you can see, people have had some pretty strong reactions to the replacement toilet paper and can you blame them? Yes, using toilet paper in abundance increases your carbon footprint, but surely there are other less medieval ways of making a positive environmental impact. There must be other steps you can take before this one. It just seems a little drastic.


We’re not the only ones who feel this way. Take for example Twitter user Nicole Cliffe (@Nicole_Cliffe) who wrote, “ahhhh family cloth, my one true enemy”. Twitter can be a bit of a melodramatic space, but this time it’s warranted.


This Twitter user is having something to say, Wario Van Peebles (@B1andzig), had a slightly more offended tone, writing, “This morning I learned about ‘family cloth’ and now I’m suing you all.”

And finally, Amy Shuford (@angelamy444) had an eerie prophecy to share with us, “Surely this is the fall of Western civilization #NoWords #familycloth”. But hey, if you’d rather spend more money on laundry detergent, who are we to stop you?
