Can I use tissues instead of toilet paper?

Toilet paper and facial tissue, like Kleenex, can both be used as a replacement for the other, but there are things that you should take into consideration. When using toilet paper to wipe or blow your nose it will not have the same soft feel as facial tissue and may further irritate an already sore nose.

Keeping this in consideration, is there an alternative to toilet paper?

The family cloth” is a reusable alternative to toilet paper, made of rags, old t-shirts, sewn fabric, or purchased cloth wipes. They are mostly used for wiping pee, but some families use them for poop and periods. Cloth wipes also pose a problem for guests, in that you should never offer cloth wipes to your guests.

is it cheaper to use toilet paper as tissues? On average, a box of tissues has 65 sheets and breaks down to about 2 cents per sheet. However, a roll of toilet paper has nearly four times as many sheets as a box of tissues and costs half as much. Of course, you're not going to toss a roll of toilet paper to your guests when they have the sniffles.

Also know, what's the difference between toilet paper and tissue?

Toilet paper and facial tissue are both made up of paper pulp, and both are meant to be discarded after a single use, but most of the commonalities end there. Facial tissue has a smoother surface than toilet paper, which makes it feel softer on the skin.

What culture does not use toilet paper?

In a country as populous as India, if everyday we use paper to wipe our asses with paper, do you think there will be enough paper left for the rest of the world ? ;) Indians have almost always used water. They squirm at the idea of toilet paper. Not only is water more hygienic, it is easily available, and well, easier.
