Also asked, what can I use if I have no toilet paper?
If you don't have any toilet paper, just use another kind of paper. Paper towels, newspapers, phone books, notebook paper, printer paper, envelopes, etc. Look around the house and see what you can find. Some people have suggested using books, but I have too much respect for books to recommend that.
Subsequently, question is, can you use paper towel as toilet paper? Paper towels are often nice and soft and absorbent so they'll do the job of cleaning yourself off without injuring some of your more sensitive tissues. Where paper towels are not safe is in flushing them down the toilet when you're finished.
Similarly, you may ask, will we ever run out of toilet paper?
Unless you live with a woman, there's no need to run out of toilet paper.
