How To Eliminate Poop Splash With Toilet Paper

We've shown you how to wipe correctly, but did you know that same toilet paper can help prevent splash damage as a result of a heavier-than-usual water landing? The video above illustrates.

All you need to do is to place a strip of toilet paper at the drop zone and it will eliminate almost all the splashback on entry. As the video shows, you don't even need a LOT of toilet paper; just one square will do if you know exactly where your relevant parts line up to the water once seated. Now go forth and defecate.

    Jesus Christ! Seriously? Look,.. the only time this would even concern me is if I have to use a toilet that doesn't flush, has been used, and no other choice is available, and by other choice, I mean behind a tree! otherwise this has not been an issue!

    it took you that long to figure this out?

    ..i thought everyone knew how to avoid splash damage....

    If you've somehow gotten this far without learning this, just give up. You've already failed at life.

    Your all hilarious.

    ..and to make matters worse they appear to have filled up 5 minutes explining the procedure.

    Some of the blog posts from Lifehacker lately have been, well, crap.

    We've done this for so long that in our household, we've gone one step further and have two rolls of toilet paper hanging off the wall - the soft and expensive one for wiping and the cheap crappy one for splash prevention.

    How did this 'post' get okayed? Not that I want to be one of those guys who rips on a site's writers, but quantity does not equal quality, Lifehacker. Might want to write that down.

    Either that or get a European toilet. You get a ledge so it will never happen, and you don't have to waste toiletpaper. plus you can have a good look to see if you are eating healthy?

    I like to call it a fireman's blanket. Nothing worse than cold water on your bum at 5am!

    Umm... Rageguy had this covered on the 'net long ago. Most of us had it figured out by then anyway...
