Toilet roll - bin it or reuse it?

My 15mnth old's favourite hobby at the moment is unravelling toilet rolls, with the result that we have large piles of unravelled toilet roll sitting beside each toilet. My DH wants to throw it out - I am making everyone use up the piles before I bring the new rolls out of hiding. He says we can afford to chuck it out. I say that is not the point.

I would use it too. We get through far to much anyway let alone waste it.

I'd definitely use it. I'd also try to teach the baby not to do this. Easy to say I know but they all have to learn sometime.

use it, why throw it out, it's not been used and is perfectly good to use.

I don't like waste

have you tried to squish the roll so it makes and oval? it's much harder to yank a long length then. Much less fun for wannabe Andrex puppies!

Havent had it happen in my house for a long time, but when my DDs did it, id shove it all in a plastic bag & hang it on the toilet roll holder to be used!

Use it all the time - if clean and dry.

Use it.

No one should ever have the attitude that they can afford to be wasteful hmm

We use it. If we have guests coming we get a new roll out and hide the old unravelled one until they've gone.

I'd definitely use it. And keep it on top of the cistern til your little one grew out of the habit!

I'd use it too - think of all those trees you're saving!

dont think my aim is good enough to piddle in a tub

Heifer Fri 15-Aug-08 17:43:23

Well I think you should spend a whole evening wrapping it back round the empty toilet rolls (whilst drinking a bottle of wine of course).... grin

Definately use, but would have to fold it up a little..
