The OVER vs UNDER debate is solved!


At least, for me it is anyway.....

I have a morning routine.

Every morning.

I wake up.... I lay in bed for a few minutes cursing my body for the aches and pains I feel... Then I get up an pee...

Sometimes I don't have time to do the first two, and I immediately get up and pee.

Today was one of those days.

Imagine my surprise, in my half asleep state, when I went to grab the toilet paper and pull off a handful only to discover I would wind up with half a roll all over the bathroom.

Since it had been unseasonably warm in my area, my furnace has hardly run since the move.

Up until now, it had never been running while I was in the bathroom....

I discovered today one interesting flaw in having a furnace duct right beneath the toilet paper holder that is attached to the wall.

I reached out, I grabbed a square and started to pull.... Only to discover the air coming from the furnace vent could create an upwind strong enough to send that toilet paper sailing, sailing all over the bathroom.

"Oh my God! Oh my God! Make it stop!"

It was a parachute of toilet paper in a matter of mere moments, when loaded in the 'over' method, there wasn't enough resistance to keep the TP in place and it continue to stay in flight.

Finally realizing what was happening, I grabbed what was left of the roll and stopped the unwind.

From this point on, 'under' it is!

Happy Monday!

*I'll just head off to roll that TP back up on the roll now.....

Your morning routine is so very similar to mine. I have a vent under the toilet paper roll. I put it over because it's easier to grab. I've never had an issue like you did today. Can you close the registrar a little so it doesn't blow on the TP? Thanks for the chuckle before I get ready for work. John

    Or, I have seen TP stands that are sort of like a hall tree, and it can stand off to the other side if you have room for it. Use toilet paper stand to search for one.
My bathroom is too tiny, I don't even have room to keep a bath mat on the floor. I can see myself stubbing my toe repeatedly on a TP stand....

    You are right, I have discovered the 'under' is still an issue, just not as big. Once you start to unroll it it doesn't want to stop. Yikes! I am going to look into the cover thing.

It helps, but not enough. I definitely need one of those cover things.

    If you happen to have very little TP left on a roll, the air may be strong enough to send that flying as well when you try pulling off a bit and the air current catches it. One of those diverters may be the only thing that helps! Unless you want to buy a free-standing TP holder to set on the floor.
I'm going to try the diverter things.... Something I've also notice is I can feel air flow in the toilet coming from the vent as well. We don't need to be blowing toilet water all over the place too. Ew!

    My vent is also under the roll. I found out if you squeeze the roll so the cardboard tube is oval it will not unroll when the air is blowing.
Really! I might have to do that until I can get one of those covers.

    You might want to test the under configuration with the furnace running. There might not be much difference.

    Maybe you need one of those clear plastic deflectors that sends the air parallel to the floor rather than straight up.

    Sounds like you need a plastic deflector that will blow the air out across the floor rather than up in the air !! PLUS side is; it will then blow to keep your Tootsies Warm or Warm the floor in front of The Throne 😉😉 If it is blowing at the time; you could also consider wiping , then squatting for a Blow Dry 😉😂🤠
Oh my.... LOL I'm afraid if I squat that far down I'll never be able to get back up!

That's exactly what I need! I notice that even though I have it going 'under' now, it's still doing the same thing, just not as bad. Ugh!

At least, for me it is anyway.....

I have a morning routine.

Every morning.

I wake up.... I lay in bed for a few minutes cursing my body for the aches and pains I feel... Then I get up and pee...

Sometimes I don't have time to do the first two, and I immediately get up and pee.

Today was one of those days.

Imagine my surprise, in my half asleep state, when I went to grab the toilet paper and pull off a handful only to discover I would wind up with half a roll all over the bathroom.

"Oh my God! Oh my God! Make it stop!"

It was a parachute of toilet paper in a matter of mere moments, when loaded in the 'over' method, there wasn't enough resistance to keep the TP in place and it continue to stay in flight.

Finally realizing what was happening, I grabbed what was left of the roll and stopped the unwind.

From this point on, 'under' it is!

Happy Monday!
