A in the northern hemisphere. B in the southern hemisphere. To match the flow of the toilet water when flushed. Simple, no?

B- It gets hidden and is hard to unroll a new one if it's A.

Steven_Gill said...

I can see benefits in both
B. Easier to grab
A. Easier to control the one handed rip

Noelle De Guzman said...

Hotels do B and even fold the edges up under to make it easier to unroll. Therefore, B.

Brain said...

If it's "A", someone could have left you a nasty 'present' on the hidden side and you wouldn't know until you touched it.

Definitely B.


(then again, I'm a single guy who just sets the full roll on the back of the throne or towel rack. [shrug])

Mac in CT said...

In a private home it's A. Toilet paper is totally submissive to serve humans in any way a human wishes. A is the submissive position whispering "Take me and do what you will with me."
In public places including hotels where they do that little pointy foldy thing, it's B, because it's crass, obnoxious and shouts out "HEY! OVER HERE, Jerk! If I was a snake, I'da bit cha!"

B!! You can't really pull it good from A if it's a brand new roll...I left on A once by mistake and the husband freaked out.

Ash said...

B! Always and Forever!

Teri8D said...

Always and forever "B" because who wants to touch the wall or have their toilet paper dragged across it before using it? (Spoken from a true germ-a-phobe!) All I really care about is: people please wash your hands after using the toilet paper! I'm out there and I notice those of you who don't! LOL.

I say A, my bf lost his left hand and its easier for him to remove it from the roll

Marmalade said...

It's def B, I think

Caroline said...

B - that's the way they're loaded in hotels and hospitals.

The people who say A probably also wipe back to front.

Angela Wilson, author said...

A is definitely better in a feline household. I know from experience. I still miss that lost, double-roll softie...

However, for me, A or B... doesn't matter. As long as I don't have to crabwalk, pants down around my ankles, to dig a used tissue out of my purse, I'm OK, either way.

In the mind of the "germaphobe", it has to be B. A would expose the paper...yourself to any germs that could migrate away from the wall...which is prone to collect airborne bacteria and other cooties.

B and there is no alternative in the mind of a germaphobe.

Joel said...

There is no debate. A. Only A. Always A. If B then you have to pull up, tilt your behind off the seat, then reposition the paper. A affords easy tear, no up-pull issues and either left or right pull works... A.

Parax said...

B every time!

Anonymous said...

A is Daft!
Reasons:

1) You cant find the end when its closest to the wall. (falls behind unseen)

2) You end up rubbing dirty hands/fingers on the wall! (should be presented clearly away from obstacles)

3) You cant neatly fold it to a point! (what will your friend think?)

B is the Winner EVERY TIME!

Katie said...

Depends.

If the roll is unencumbered in any way (generally in a private home), then B.

If, however, the roll is in some sort of plastic/metal distributor/holder OR has another roll sitting on top of it, then A, because that allows the roll to actually lift and roll more easily, thus enabling one to pull a reasonable amount from it, rather than having it rip off in little pieces bit by frigging bit as one attempts to acquire it. I despise places which install it in the B position and then place other rolls on top of it. DESPISE.

The fact of the matter is, you can wipe your a$$ with it regardless. You people should quit worrying about this debate and consider that baby wipes are the 21st century choice of the truly discerning.

Sarah said...

Usually B, but when your kid learns how to unroll it that way, then you switch to A. They can't unroll it as easily!

keikii said...

i do neither. i actually put the roll on top of the thing because it is easier to wrap around your fingers than because i like wiping my ass with a nice square piece of paper.

Anonymous said...

...and the Bs have it

Anonymous said...

if you like a its because you like to rip off the paper and its easier to get caught and rip off. if you like pulling them off then you like b thats what i think

Stirling said...

A if you have young ids or a puppy or young cat who would love to reach a hand up to unravel the whole roll. B for every other situation just because its easier.

What do you use toilet paper for?

Taking a dump.

And what's that sometimes called?

Going number 2.

And what's the second letter of the alphabet?

Anonymous said...

A is the proper way. If you recall an early episode of Who's the Boss, it will be confirmed that B is the improper over-hand method. Any show with Tony Danza and Alyssa Milano can't be wrong.

Anonymous said...

I once was an A as a child because I thought it was more Aesthetically pleasing that the hang-down was close to the wall.

Now I am 30+ years older I find it's just easier to grab the B hang-down.


So B.

I hate to say it, but check your etiquette books folks. The proper way is actually A because it prevents excess paper from spinning off when you go to tear the sheets.
Most importantly though WHO CARES?!?!?!?!!??!

Anonymous said...

Ha what is this toilet paper for anyway?

StevenRS said...

C (uninstalled - roll is left on back of toilet, sink, counter, etc...)

Anonymous said...

B, or just not on the roller

Liz said...

B

If it's A, I get annoyed. The paper hangs too close to the wall, it's just not convenient to grab.

Musick's Emperor said...

B, because it is easier to find the end in the dark. Personally I never have problems with the one handed rip with B. It's all in the wrist.

Agent Muu said...

Who actually finds the one-hand rip easier with A? It's so much easier with B, you end up pulling the roll down either way with improper technique, but with B you have more room to pull it directly sideways. With A it is more awkward, especially if the roll is not on the side you are oriented toward (i.e. right-handed vs. left-handed)

Suuchan said...

A, A, a million times A.

It's easier to pull it towards you. Whenever it's B I end up yanking at it uselessly and half the roll comes undone.

Anonymous said...

Before AOL existed in the years of Compuserve, I read a book that mentioned this. In 1870's - 1900's (can't remember the exact date) when toilet paper was first sold in U.S. General stores, this was a common debate then. So TP companies started including instructions on the paper wrapping showing diagram B. So I am afraid that B is the Correct answer according to the manufacturer!

Patrick said...

A, because in B you usually end up unrolling way more TP than you need, plus because with B my cat always pulls off the whole roll because it's easy.
