Toilet paper alternatives

This whole Coronavirus outbreak is just depressing. The more I listen to the news, the more depressed I get. You’ve heard stores have been running out of toilet paper.

If you’re close to nature and know what plants to look for, you won’t be in the lurch if you know what to look for. If you’re doing a nature hike and you realize you ran out of toilet paper, there are alternatives people have used for thousands of years to do their clean up. Below are some of these.

Mullein (Miner’s toilet paper)

Grape Leaves

Brassica plant-type leaves (cabbage, kale, collard, etc.)
