Still Reeling From the Great Toilet Paper Shortage of 2020? Here Are 10 Stress-Free Alternatives

If you haven’t really recovered from the dark times of early 2020 and sheer panic induced by not being able to buy toilet paper for weeks on end, you may want to start prepping now for whatever fresh hell the autumn and winter’s shift to indoor activities may bring. Between flu season and the ongoing pandemic, there’s no telling how this oh-so-spectacular year will finish out. Don’t get caught with your pants down and an empty roll. Arm yourself with one of these 10 alternatives to TP while they’re all on sale.

Smart Toilet Seat

Toilet paper may be everyone’s go-to, but it’s not the most eco-friendly choice. The smart toilet seat from Aim to Wash! is a great alternative to a rough wipe, as it gives you that soothing clean with warm water. The nozzle on the smart seat is also self-cleaning, which means you don’t need to touch it before or after use. Aim to Wash! is always heated, too, so you can also say goodbye to those seriously unpleasant cold toilet seats.

It also has a 3-in-1 nozzle that gives you a soothing butt massage (we’re not kidding) and a powerful deodorizer that’ll drive away all those smells nobody wants.
