The right sorts of leaves do well. The wrong ones, not so much.

Oddly enough, what sorts of leaves make good butt wipe is covered in most survival courses.

eta: from living on a farm and at least occasionally having to use an outhouse at some of the older relatives', corncobs are very nice, old Sears catalogs are good too.


I watched a survival docu a while ago, can't remember what it was, but they recommended using a smooth stone if you aren't familiar with the local flora lol.

Lol speaking of corn... I actually grew 6 nice stalks and they were flourishing. Got up this morning and I guess a deer, pretty much destroyed them last night.
Got one last week so I put some landscape fencing around them(it's all I had) but alas, the deer came back and all six were pretty much trampled down this morning.

That's funny since my mind went right to "shove it up your . . . . "

If you live near, or on the coast, small sea shells, Elizabethan England used them, (the first Liz, not the present one!) I have no idea how effective they are, sorry, were.

Sorry for the slightly misleading title, but what are you going to use when all your toilet paper is gone?


I think the more urgent problem would be the lack of food. If you don't eat you are not going to need toiletpaper.



Use water if you have access to it. And your finger.

Okay, I'm confused...

How in the hell does a corn cob help you clean your butt after pooping?

I truly don't see any way it could help in any efficient manner to clean the poop out of your butt.

Seriously, someone please explain.

I don't know either, but wikipedia said to use one.
Do you go with only pass or can you turn it over and use the other side?
Do you hold it at the ends or in the middle?
Long ways or short ways?

So many questions I hope I never have to answer.

Your question made me laugh out loud. Then I started picturing what it would be like to wipe my butt with a corn cob, and laughed even harder. Sounds ridiculous to me. I think it might be easier to drag my butt across the carpet, like my dog.

Guess you never had one. You don't eat the outer layer. The corn husk is just used to keep things, usually corn dough, meat and sauce, together so they don't turn into a porridge when they are put into a pot although, if done right, that doesn't sound bad either.

Think of it like the paper cup on a muffin.

It has nooks and crannies.

Never had to use any but I would think that soaking them in water might make for a better experience.

I honestly thought that the answer to the title of OP was to make a smoking pipe.

Run out? I can think of PLENTY of nearby places, post SHTF, that we could loot for TP....

I could think of better things to use than a corn cob. The ancient Romans used a sponge on a stick.

Hygiene sticks?

"Mao and Wang found the hygiene sticks with cloth wrapped around one end."

No need to revert to barbarism, folks. Use a cloth and then, next time you're near flowing water, wash your collection of cloths. Following my wife's experiment with cloth diapers for our first born, I recognized the value of a package of them in the survival kit. I also like the bag of 50 cotton shop towels at O'Reilly Auto when they have their routine sales. A bag of them is a must have in the back of the SUV, but they have a multitude of uses.

Always have a bag of shop towels in the trunk. if for no other reason to clean the inside glass.

If you wrinkle up glossy pages, and run 'em through your hands, they become soft.

Old porn works fine.

Sand will do in a pinch.

Use old porn the wrong way or a corn cob?

I'm torn.

You can use both, and still be torn. Wait, what are we discussing here?
