8 Weird Toilet Paper Alternatives To Use In A Crisis

toilet paper alternatives

Toilet paper alternatives – most preppers don’t think about them. Sure, maybe you’ve got a stockpile of TP already put away. Or maybe you haven’t thought once about it. Still, the fact remains that you may end up in a situation where you’ll have to go without toilet paper – especially in an emergency situation.

Maybe that stockpile of yours will run out. Or maybe for whatever reason you have to leave it behind, or don’t have access to it.

I’m not saying don’t have a toilet paper stockpile. That’s an incredibly important resource. However, it’s also a luxury. That’s why, in order to best prepare for an emergency, it’s crucial to consider these…

8 Weird Toilet Paper Alternatives To Use In A Crisis

Old T-shirts, Rags, etc.

It’s a pretty good idea to bring an extra shirt or two with you that you don’t plan on wearing. That’s because these are great for ripping up and using for survival uses…like this one. Rags and old towels also work well. Plus, if you can afford to do laundry in a sanitary way, you can reuse these items again and again.

A Corn Cob

This one may sound strange. However, people have been using corn cobs to get the job done since Colonial times. Now, I’m not saying it’s comfortable. But, for hygiene purposes, it’s a whole lot better than nothing.

A Wet Sponge

The Romans were some of the first people to use this method. And, for a survival situation, it can work pretty well! Just make sure the water you’re using to wet the sponge is sanitary. Otherwise, this could lead to far worse problems.


Very few preppers know that the mullein plant is actually “nature’s toilet paper.” Its velvety soft leaves are ideal in a pinch. Not to mention, it naturally fights infection and inflammation – making it an ideal toilet paper alternative!

Check out the video below to learn how to identify it.

Smooth Stones

Although this option may sound strange, the Islamic culture has been using this effectively for years. Large, smooth stones like river rock can work well as an alternative to toilet paper. However, you’ll need to thoroughly inspect the rock first. Make sure there’s no rough areas or jagged, pointy sections. Any of these will NOT result in a pleasant bathroom experience.

Magazine & Newspaper Pages

Today, it’s pretty common to see some magazines or books next to the toilet. However, this was for a much larger purpose than just reading back in the day. During Colonial times, Americans made the discovery that they could use newspaper pages to wipe.

Soon after, the Father’s Almanac was put into outhouses. They even put in a hole art the top so they could hang it on the hook inside the door.


Most preppers have at least one first-aid kit in their but out bag. (And if you don’t, stop what you’re doing and get one. Now.).

One of the most common items in this kit is gauze. However, it’s good for more than just bandaging up wounds. In fact, this soft material can make an effective (and comfortable) toilet paper alternative in a crisis.

Other Plants

There are a variety of plants that can help you stay clean and fresh in an SHTF situation. Look for these plants in an emergency:

  • Thimbleberry
  • Bolted Lettuce
  • Cottonwood
  • Maple
  • Aster

However, there’s one plant you should avoid at all costs: poison ivy. If you accidentally use this plant, then well…the results won’t be pleasant.

Unfortunately, many preppers don’t know how to identify poison ivy. And, if you aren’t sure how to identify it, this makes it much more difficult to avoid.

Watch the video below to learn all about identifying this plant.

BONUS: How To Stock TP Effectively

It’s important to know the alternatives for toilet paper. It’s also important to have the real stuff on hand, too.

Unfortunately, toilet paper can be a pretty big pain to stock up on. That’s because it’s bulky, and is hard to fit in your bug out bag without taking up too much room. Plus, people tend to use it up pretty quickly (especially by those who take way too much out of habit).

Plus, when you calculate the number of rolls your house goes through in a week, and multiply it by the number of weeks you’ll need it (plan for a year), well….that tends to be a pretty large number.

Luckily, there’s an invention that may make it WAY easier to stop up on toilet paper. Check out the video below for details.


Migrant Invaders Brazenly Charge at Swimmers in Speedboat


In a blatant affront to American sovereignty, a dozen illegal immigrants executed a dangerous and illegal invasion of our shores, arriving at a California beach via speedboat with reckless disregard for the safety of Americans enjoying their leisure time. One surfer narrowly escaped harm as the vessel tore through the water at high speeds, a clear symbol of the contempt these lawbreakers hold for our laws and our people.

This latest episode in Carlsbad, a mere 30 miles north of San Diego, is a chilling reminder of the organized lawlessness that is being orchestrated across our borders. Once ashore, these illegal entrants scurried toward luxury vehicles, suggesting a level of premeditation and support that borders on an invasion facilitated by criminal networks.

Compounding the audacity of this episode was the abject failure of local law enforcement to respond, leaving law-abiding citizens to fend for themselves. Such incidents underscore a terrifying erosion of law and order, signaling to criminals everywhere that our borders are open for exploitation.

This incident is not an anomaly but a stark representation of a broader crisis fueled by a border policy that might as well hang a welcome sign for criminals and opportunists. The alarming influx of illegal crossings, particularly in the San Diego sector—where nearly 7,000 breaches were reported last week alone—is a direct result of deliberate inaction and misguided policies that invite chaos and endanger American lives.

The economic and social strain this unchecked immigration inflicts on our communities is unsustainable. The closure of local migrant shelters, once hemorrhaging millions of taxpayer dollars monthly, is a testament to the fiscal burden imposed by these continuous waves of illegal entrants. This burden has now shifted to our airports and bus stations, turning them into makeshift shelters and degrading the quality of life for residents and tourists alike.

It is evident that our current administration lacks the will to address this crisis effectively. The projected figures are a dire warning: with over 8 million people potentially on our streets, including two million with criminal intentions, the situation is nothing short of a national emergency.

Congress must act with urgency to secure our borders and overhaul an immigration system that has been exploited far too long. We need robust enforcement of our immigration laws, substantial penalties for those who violate them, and an end to policies that encourage illegal entry into our country. The time for tolerance of this disorder is over. The safety, security, and sovereignty of the United States must be enforced rigorously and without apology. We must protect American citizens and the integrity of our nation.

ASTONISHING: Israel Stops 99 Percent of Missile Attacks


Amidst the recent turmoil caused by Iran’s aggressive assault on Israel, there’s a beacon of hope shining brightly—the resolute defense put forth by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), which successfully thwarted a staggering 99% of the incoming drones and missiles launched by Iran. This remarkable feat stands as a testament to Israel’s unwavering commitment to protecting its citizens and maintaining regional stability in the face of relentless aggression from Iran and its terrorist proxy, Hezbollah.

Iran’s brazen attack, employing over 300 drones, cruise missiles, and ballistic missiles, aimed to sow chaos and terror in Israeli territory. However, Israel’s formidable defense capabilities, coupled with the invaluable support of allies like the United States, the U.K., and Jordan, ensured that the overwhelming majority of these threats were neutralized before any harm could be inflicted.

In a statement, IDF Spokesman Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari rightfully hailed this achievement as a significant strategic victory—one that showcases Israel’s resilience, technological prowess, and unwavering determination to defend its borders and its people against hostile forces.

What’s particularly heartening amidst this turbulent time is not just the successful interception of Iran’s aggressive projectiles, but also the minimal impact they had on Israeli soil. Despite Iran’s malicious intentions to inflict harm on Israeli territory and military infrastructure, the IDF’s steadfast defense prevented any significant damage or casualties, ensuring the safety and security of Israeli citizens.

This remarkable display of resilience and strength is a testament to Israel’s unwavering commitment to protect its people and maintain peace in the region. It also sends a powerful message to Iran and its proxies that their attempts to sow chaos and terror will be met with swift and decisive action.

As Israel continues to stand firm against the forces of aggression and terror, it is imperative for the international community to rally behind Israel and condemn Iran’s hostile actions. The successful interception of Iran’s drones and missiles serves as a powerful reminder of Israel’s unwavering determination to defend its sovereignty and safeguard the safety and security of its citizens.

Biden Regime Enabled Iran, Hezbollah Attack on Israel


In the aftermath of Iran’s reprehensible assault on Israel, orchestrated directly by its military forces and not through its proxy Hezbollah, the Biden administration’s failure to renew expiring sanctions against Iran at the United Nations is not just negligent—it’s complicit. By allowing these sanctions to lapse, the Biden administration effectively paved the way for Iran’s brazen act of aggression, emboldening Tehran and signaling to the world that it is willing to turn a blind eye to Iran’s malevolent ambitions.

The recent massacre of over 1,200 innocent people in Israel, coupled with Iran’s direct missile attack on Israeli territory, serves as a grim reminder of the consequences of appeasement and inaction in the face of evil. Iran, the foremost state sponsor of terrorism, has been given free rein to sow chaos and destruction across the Middle East, thanks in part to the Biden administration’s misguided policies and lack of resolve.

Let’s be clear: Iran’s actions are not isolated incidents but part of a broader pattern of aggression and subversion. Its Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), a designated terrorist organization by the United States, continues to operate with impunity, thanks to the Biden administration’s reluctance to confront Iran head-on.

The recent onslaught of over 300 drones and missiles launched directly by the Iranian military towards Israeli territory is a direct consequence of the Biden administration’s failure to take decisive action against Iran’s ballistic missile and drone programs. While Israel’s defense forces valiantly intercepted the vast majority of the incoming threats, the fact remains that these attacks could have been prevented if the Biden administration had shown the courage to stand up to Iran.

Moreover, the expiration of sanctions against Iran is not just a missed opportunity—it’s a damning indictment of the Biden administration’s foreign policy priorities. By prioritizing appeasement over accountability, the Biden administration has emboldened Iran and its proxies, allowing them to threaten the stability and security of the entire region.

Let’s not forget Hezbollah, Iran’s primary proxy and puppet, which is complicit in these heinous acts. Hezbollah serves as Tehran’s willing tool for spreading terror and chaos throughout the region, with its bloody fingerprints evident in conflicts from Lebanon to Syria and beyond.

In the face of Iran’s relentless aggression, Israel has once again borne the brunt of the violence. Yet, despite facing existential threats on multiple fronts, Israel remains steadfast in its commitment to defending its people and preserving peace in the face of adversity.

It is time for the international community to hold the Biden administration accountable for its failures and demand decisive action against Iran and its proxies. The United Nations Security Council must act swiftly to renew sanctions against Iran and cripple its ability to sow chaos and destruction.

In conclusion, the Biden administration’s inaction and appeasement have only emboldened Iran and its proxies, enabling them to carry out acts of terror and aggression with impunity. Now is the time for the world to stand in solidarity with Israel and confront the forces of darkness and tyranny threatening to engulf the region.
