What is an alternative toilet paper.?
My local Tesco has been out of toilet rolls for my last two trips. I have one spare roll left. After that runs out I will need something. What alternative that breaks down in the pipes do you use or would use ?.

Use kitchen roll and/or newspaper. Place it in a lined bin. Then put it in the normal trash. That's what the Greeks do with ordinary toilet paper as their drain pipes are narrow.

Kitchen roll [the cheaper ones break down better], that's if you can get some!.
Or the cheaper Tissues, [same again, on the availability].

Get a wastebasket that has a lid that raises when you step on the pedal. Line it with a plastic trash bag. Cut an old sheet into 4 inch squares. Use the cut up sheet to wipe yourself, and toss into the trash can. after a few days, you can toss the rags into the wash with hot water and laundry disinfectant.

washing in the shower

There is no alternative. Toilet tissue breaks down in water, virtually every other paper product is designed to retain its strength to some degree when wet. EVERYTHING else you might use can and will contribute to a toilet clog - this INCLUDES WIPES.
Keep shopping. Hit other stores besides Tesco. Settle for the cheap toilet paper.

Newspaper cut into squares which is what our grandparents used.

cleansing tissues [a/k/a Kleenex] -- any brand. It's sort of fragile in this use and so difficult to use, but does dissipate in water and so won't clog pipes

Why do you need to flush. Why not use dispose it in a trash bin and when it’s full, collect it and throw it in the trash.
