Generally fold, sometimes wad.  But I am using a lot less TP now a days with these setons.  I've gotten in the habit of foregoing toilet paper by getting in the bathtub and rinsing off with my hand-held shower sprayer.  Much cleaner than TP and cheaper too.  Save a tree!   devil

I am a wrapper. I will wrap it around my hand 5 times (always the same number:). I start my wrap by going up and around.

I always fold...afraid if I wad or ball, there might be a gap for dripping through!

hey Fall Colors...I'm a big fan of my nearby shower stall too (then blow dry after!). But, I can't always spend the time to shower it off. I bought one of those things to use on babies ears/nose...you know the suction ball thingie (yup don;t have kids so don't know the real name). I run the faucet while going on wamr, fill up the ball thingie and use it to squirt......still savin' paper! and works if for some reason the roll is empty!

Hi Habs!  I even bought a hand-held shower sprayer with an extra long hose so I could sit on the side of the tub and spray away!!  The blow dryer is an interesting idea.  I'm betting the blow dryer companies never thought of marketing their products for this use...  tongue

gail....you count the amount of times you wrap???? Thanks I feel so much better about my analyzing the difference in amount of paper depending on the beginning or end of roll use now. I always review that i use more paper when the roll is full because more comes off the larger circumference (ha I always knew that high school math would come in handy)
I guess I'm not alone in the in depth analysis of TP (wow in my job we use the acronym TP for something completely different....now I am going to think about the potty in every conversation.)

Folder. Five or six sections--sometimes more--folded to make a thick pad (Charmin Extra-Strong). I can't believe how much toilet paper we go through! Tissues, too, for a second series of swipes . And I load the toilet paper over the top.

Funny!....I'm a wadder...is that a word..?.In public bathrooms I wad a bit first to put up to my nose and mouth. This is to stop me from puking in a restroom that is less desirable....which is most.

Total folder. I guess it makes me feel like I'm in control more. A wad might expand a little and I try to be conservative. Now, with the setons, I definitely have been finishing with a sitz bath, so that prolongs the whole experience. And beleive it or not, i've also been alternating with a swuatting platform over the toilet, and I think that makes the wipe a little easier.

I guess you could call it "wadder", that's at home, or public restroom. When we take the travel trailer somewhere, I use as little as possible to avoid overloading the black water tank with TP. Then I finish up with a wet wipe and put them in ziplock bags, in the trash. It works pretty well. At work I use as much as I want, it serves them right for stocking the thinnest paper they can find. Good question, Randy.

I do either fold if it is not bad, or wrap cover completely if it is bad. Charmin extra soft. Ladies should always wipe 12 to six o'clock.

Place the roll w/paper coming off the back and under. TP holder is right above a furnace register and if I place the roll w/paper off the top to the front the "breeze" from the register when the roll is towards the end unrolls the paper!!!

I'm a folder, but I don't count how much I use. I definitely use more than Cheryl Crow though! I'm amazed at how much I use...it seems I'm always picking up tp when I go to the store. I switched to Charmin Extra Strong...like the commercial it leaves less behind (no pun intended!) and I use less than the extra soft kind.

Always have put the tp over the top...can't stand if it's not like that. I actually switch it if I go to my bf's house so it's on correctly! (I'm that picky!)

Over the top. Fold. Followed by a wet, flushible wipe - always!!! My GI doc tells me often that I'm way too "anal" (pun intended) in the way I wipe. ha ha

CrohnieToo: Ha Ha. The way one "wipes" isn't any worse than most of whats discussed on these forums. Not that you asked, but it came up with my GI doc when I asked her about itchiness "at that spot". She - as in my doc - did a little look-see and that's when she made the comment. Ha Ha. Sorry if I embarrassed you!
