When packing your bug out bag or your camping gear, carrying as many of the necessary items as you can is a cumbersome task. Space is always an issue… that's why one of the problems we face is fitting in enough toilet paper.
Although very lightweight, toilet paper takes up so much space we sometimes skip bringing extra. This problem is now solved thanks to a really ingenious new invention that every prepper will love.
It starts out as diameter the size of a nickel but much thicker. Then a few drops of water will expand the material to almost the size of a small towel. Another great feature is that it's really durable.

Try stretching wet toilet paper out and it disintegrates into pieces. But if you stretch this one out it maintains its original form without tearing. This toughness makes it reusable, Thus, it can be used as an emergency bandage… unless of course you use it to wipe your behind and WANT it to be disposable.
Other uses include:
– Emergency feminine hygiene
– Water filtration
One tablet is equivalent to a pretty good handful of toilet paper. Unless your number two is more like a 10, one of these tablets can get the job done. You can get 3-4 solid wipes out of it by folding a few times. And when the going gets tough (or messy), a few tabs will do. Since it's easy to pack, you can bring as many as you like.
They may not be quite as cheap as a toilet paper but they are much more practical and more functional. So when you think about how expensive toilet paper is, the price difference is really negligible.
The video below gives more detail…
As you can see in the video, they now have a larger size available as an alternative to the smaller original tablet.
One disadvantage I noticed is that to expand the tablet they work better using water. So if you're stranded in the desert with no water you may be better off using a conventional toilet paper.
What do you think of this alternative to toilet paper? Have you tried one yourself? If not, will you be planning to use one in the future?

Personally, I think the toilet paper tablet is the best thing since sliced… well, toilet paper!
Until next time…
Take care and God bless
