Correct toilet paper roll direction?

And why should it be that direction?

Which direction is the best direction to orient toilet paper - the next sheet to be dispensed on the roll facing the wall, or the roll facing outwards?

If you have pets and/or small children, the sheet should face the wall thus making it harder for them to get it and make a mess. Unless you think that kind of stuff is cute and don't mind picking up wasted TP.

No, if you have pets or small children you should either close the bathroom door or put the roll up high--like I do.

The roll should face out, so you can clearly see the next piece and don't have to reach all the way to the back of the roll just to get a new piece.

Obviously. It also prevents the paper from bunching at the top if the clearance between the spool and the wall is small.

No argument the roll should be facing front..why would you reach behind it to grab it you will pull off little pieces at a time

Awesome analysis. Click on the link for examples of the helpful and fruitful over-hung method and the annoying and detrimental under-hung method.

Just because when i put my book down so that i don't lose my page, i want to have the toilet paper be able to easily be pulled toward me since it is technically behind me anyways, it just makes it so much easier when you don't have to spin the roll a couple of times just so you can grab it and wipe! hahaha. but in all seriousness. . . WHO NEEDS TOILET PAPER? LEAVES ALL THE WAY BRADA! WHOOO! ANARCHY!

The Great Debate on CD?

well, of course it faces the outside, cause when you pull it it's easier to rip and it doesn't go all the way to the floor, causing you to have to roll it back up. you don't want to wipe your dirt with paper that has actual dirt on it.

Definitely. Whenever I run out of golden retriever puppies, I use properly spooled and mounted rump wipes.
