You are a rough and tumble type of guy or gal. You can live out in the wilderness for days on end and love every minute of it. It’s an adventure! Or no, maybe you are a homesteader. You make everything by hand, canning foods, bringing in water from a well, and sew all your own garments.

In both scenarios you are a survivor, emotionally well-equipped to make it in the world if ever the SHTF, right?

But then all of a sudden you run out of toilet paper…. no problem. You’ll just run out to the corner grocery store and… oh, wait. The grid has just gone down and the store shelves are all empty!

Well, there are alternates, including old newspapers and even a leaf if necessary. Or maybe – just maybe you can learn to make your own!

After the break, go on over to the next page and check out some homemade substitutions for toilet paper. They are genuinely brilliant!

    How about water? If have surplus of water can use water to clean self up.

    Toilet Paper is obsolete and just plain nasty. Washing with water is the way to go and the best way to do that is with a Hand Bidet Sprayer. 10X cleaner, healthier and saves money at the same time! See
