    If the toilet paper supply was actually used up in the community, with no source of resupply, just imagine the hygiene problems.

    In the zombie apocalypse, toilet paper is worth more than gold. It’s worth almost as much as clean water.

    At the post apocalypse swap meet and supply trade, you will hear, “hey Fred, I’ll trade you this rusty hatchet for six rolls of Charmin...”

    Way back when I was still at school I was in a city that had a typhoid epidemic, the roads in and out were closed and manned by the police. Schools were closed ( very long summer holidays for us), streets were empty, we had out summer holiday cancelled but there was no panic, Scottish people are not prone to it anyway. We were all urged to wash our hands just like now. I am one of those people though who cannot eat corned beef because of it.

    While I was looking for something to post on the Aberdeen epidemic I found this, the British medical Journal, a very well respected source of medical knowledge, they have free Coronavirus info which I'm going to keep an eye on, there's pieces about the USA response too.

    whats wrong with newspaper ? apart from getting an inky bum ! failing that kitchen roll works well, as do wet wipes, which are my choice for the woods, though doc leaves have been untilised on quite a few occasions

    i even sat on a toilet that had no toilet paper availabe and stuck cigerete papers together once if it needs any more than a minor wipe you need to consider you diet

    All those would block the sewage system leaving us with an even nastier problem and worse diseases.

    back in the days when they built the system news paper is all most of the population had

    When I was younger you hardly ever seen a porta-john at a construction site. Knowing which trees to get your 'toilet paper' from was very important. Hickory leaves, while quite large and good for the purpose, will leave you itching.
    Sometimes you were just glad you found some leaves.

    Or just use water as Asian people do, they consider it cleaner than using paper.

    Why put a bucket in it? Dig a deeper hole put a board with a hole over it. Fill hole back in when half full. If you want to interrupt the fly cycle get a good seal to close the hole (like another board) when not in use.

    Each line/paragraph you wrote about it is incorrect, so just going to go through it for each part.

    1. If you are hiking, it is not any tougher to carry ziplocked soap with you then it is to carry hand sanitizer, if you feel the need for something. And you should have water with you, so that's not an issue either. If you're on a multiday hike, you should have ziplocked soap with you.

    2. It is not a viable alternative. It is a better than nothing alternative. As in, you use it if you need until you can get to a place with soap, then immediately actually wash your hands.

    3. In the link, it even specifies that it is an alternative until you can wash your hands because it is less effective than handwashing. What the link specifies is to use a higher alcohol content gel, if you are going to use a gel. It's like saying "you should drink water, not soda, but if you do, drink X brand because it's healthier than Y brand."

    4. I promise you, people do drink those. I've seen it plenty of times.

    5. That 99.9% bacteria killing is false.

    I used to feel that way, but they were wrong once and I won't get fooled again.
