Mum Makes Her Own Reusable Toilet Rolls And Sells Them For £25 Online

What do you do when the once fully-stocked supermarket shelves are as empty as the heads of those people stockpiling toilet rolls?

Well, you make your own fancy bog rolls of course, then flog them for £25 a pop on the internet.

That's exactly what maker Eloise Marsh has done, showing off her new creation with the For the Love of Australian Handmade Facebook group.

Marsh make each roll from 12 squares of printed material with a terry towelling backing designed to fit around your toilet roll holder.

"Just to get you by (you could ration your toilet paper and just use this for number ones, leaving your precious toilet paper for number twos) or you could save a bunch of money on toilet paper by using this all the time!

"Each square has a plastic press stud at each end making it easy to use and easy to roll back after each wash."

The longer-lasting loo roll is for sale on Australian Handmade Textiles and will set you back $50 - or £25.

Your alternative in the UK, of course, is going to Costco and risk getting your head kicked in for the last pallet of Andrex.

Supermarkets like Tesco and Waitrose have been forced to start limiting the amount of certain items customers can buy.

Tesco is limiting people to five each of items including pasta, long-life milk and antibacterial products, just in case people don't understand that the more of that stuff you buy for yourself, the less for other people, who will then have dirty hands or starve.

Waitrose and Iceland are capping online sales of anti-bacterial soaps and wipes to four per person. A spokesperson for Waitrose said the cap was temporary, adding: "We continue to work with suppliers to help meet demand."

Aldi, Asda and Boots have limited sales of hand santiser to two per person, online and in stores.

Sainsbury's, Lidl and Morrison's are yet to impose any such limits.

The government has said that supermarkets won't run out of food if people stick to their normal shopping habits, which some shoppers have interpreted as getting into a punch up while trying to wrestle 48 bog rolls from each other - just like in this Australian supermarket.

Maybe we all need to calm down a bit.
