Entry Description

People use toilet paper for a variety of reasons e.g. wiping up spills, removing makeup, bathroom hygiene and cleaning chores. But people are prone to put toilet paper on table or put kitchen paper towel near sink in kitchen without putting it in toilet roll holder or toilet tissue reserve canister. The dust, bacteria, water or oil stain would easily attach to bottom surface of paper. Therefore we redesign toilet paper roll, as slogan goes: Turn paper roll upside down, make dust go away! New toilet paper roll is made from disinfected recycling paper pulp. Don’t purchase toilet roll holder, because toilet paper roll is the best holder. After toilet paper is used up, compressible structure design makes users press down on toilet paper roll without effort and reduce waste size. The design draws the public attention to care more about the hygiene and environmental protection issue.

B. Product Instructions
1. Tear toilet paper roll inside with precut dash line.
2. Turn bottom part upside down and then put it back. The wavy part should be visible outside the toilet paper roll.
3. Now it becomes a toilet paper roll stand.
4. After using toilet paper, easily compress the wavy part to make paper roll flatten in order to reduce the waste.
