An eco-warrior mother has sparked a lengthy debate after revealing that she ditched toilet paper and her family now relies on cloth.
The woman, who goes under the username @tiny_waste on TikTok, first revealed the things her family often asks when they visit her home, including the lack of toilet paper in their restrooms.
Shen then mentioned they use ‘family cloth’ made out of old Christmas pajamas.
“The family cloth and bidet setup is in the upstairs bathroom… I cannot tell a lie,” she said.
When someone asked her what a ‘family cloth’ was for, she made another TikTok video.
“It is an unfortunate name for cloth toilet paper. Let me show you what the setup is in my home to hopefully remove some of the ick factor,” she says.
“This is the toilet in our upstairs bathroom primarily used by my husband and I.”
She then pointed to a small basket on top of the cistern and showed that it was filled with reusable cloths.
“When I use the bathroom I let the bidet do all the heavy lifting, pat dry with a clean wipe, and then put the used wipe in this bin which will eventually go into the laundry,” she continued.
“No wipe is ever used for multiple bathroom sessions without being laundered, that would be disgusting.”
She also said that she loves cloth instead of tissue paper because “it is sturdier and softer on my bum.”
People on TikTok were left divided by her revelation, with one person commenting: “Nope. Still poop left. I’m not sticking that in my washer.”
Another said: “You couldn’t pay me to do this.”
A third added: “You do you but even touching that after I know someone else wiped with it makes me feel so dirty.”
Someone else said: “I mean the bidet does the heavy work. this works. I appreciate anyone who goes low waste without pressuring other consumers.”
Another commented: “Cloth is so much comfier and does a great job of drying after a bidet. We also keep TP for guests.”
