We’ve talked about the damage you can do to your sewer system by flushing anything other than toilet paper. Finding a reliable source during the Covid-19 pandemic can be a challenge. Relying on your usual stores can leave you waiting for weeks. If you are lucky enough to find something, you don’t know if they will have it next time.
Here are some ways to take the anxiety and guesswork out of finding toilet tissue:
Since many businesses are closed, commercial or industrial supply websites have toilet paper along with other items that are hard to find such as paper towels and facial tissue. Companies like Quill offer these items to the public and are available in bulk with free shipping! This will allow you to stock up online without the risk of going to the store. Keep in mind though that the quality of these types of products is what you will usually find in public restrooms.
Eliminate time and anxiety of guessing when you may run low on supplies with a recurring order. Amazon offers a service called Subscribe & Save. Many items that you can’t find in a normal Amazon search will be available under this service. Not only are paper products available, but you can subscribe to receive many different items such as pet food or laundry detergent in any monthly increment you want. Choose your order frequency and change your order at any time. The best part is the 5-15% discount.
If you are looking to make a change to something that is less stressful on the environment and your backside, ditch the toilet paper entirely and get a bidet. Bidets attach to your existing toilet and are more accessible than you may think. These days they are extremely affordable and easy to install. You don’t need a plumber or a new toilet. There many resources out there to help you find the right bidet.
Finding essential items like toilet paper during this time of uncertainty with COVID-19 requires a little planning but doesn’t have to be stressful. While some of these options still take weeks to get your first order delivered, you will find that once you get going with buying in bulk or a subscription service it’s easy to keep stocked up.
