HOW MUCH OF TOILET PAPER DO YOU USE EVERY YEAR?
I know, that’s not a punchline you think you’d see on a plumbers blog, but I like to keep my readers on their toes. That said, if you believe this chart, we spend on average four years of our life time in the restroom, so it applies to all of us – right?! You can probably blame the selection on this this graphic on the fact that both my roommate and I have spent a lot of time in the restroom the last few years as we’ve been in the throws of potty training the little boy Rules’ and you’d be amazed at how much of life can relate to all things toilet paper and potty training – heck I even wrote a post on it last month – How Budgeting is Like Potty Training. If you don’t believe me, then ask pretty much any parent of little children and they’ll tell you that what goes on in the restroom doesn’t necessarily stay in the restroom. In fact, it can often have a funny way with many things in life.

The majority of people prefer their toilet paper to go over and not under
1 of 4 people get annoyed when it’s facing the “wrong” way…glad I am not the only OCD person out there 😉
75% of houseguests snoop through their freinds and family cabinets
Americans use 432 million miles of toilet paper each year
86% of bathroom related injuries occur because someone has fallen in the toilet bowl after the seat being left up…now that’s something I think I’d keep to myself.
- Consumers use approximately 7-8 sheets of paper per toilet use.
- We use an average of 59 sheets of toilet paper a day!
- The average roll weighs 226 grams (measurements: 4.4 inches by 4.4 inches per
