    I would be leery of using the paper towel suggestion. They don't go down the toilet so easy. Little stronger than toilet paper. The one in the bathroom doesn't work so much for cats as far as my friend says about hers. She has one that can open a child proof lock on a cabinet.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    One of the hints I saw him do was to take a swim noodle, cut it to fit a hanger and cut a slit in it lengthwise. Put the noodle over the straight side (long one) of the hanger. That way we can hang quilts or fabric without folds.

    I use tp rolls to confine long electrical cords. You can even decorate them to match your d-core like in bathroom. Just fold your curling iron, hair dryer cords etc up & put a tp roll over it. I use them in the kitchen too for anything with a cord.

    I just discovered him the other day using Mason jars for various projects. And, I too, love the roll on the wrapping paper.

    there is a BIG difference between toilet paper and other paper products once flushed. If you have a septic system, do NOT flush paper towels or even Kleenex down it. They make look similar but they aren't.

    In the basenji (dog) world, we call toilet paper 'filler food.' They get immense joy from grabbing the end and running, sometimes 4 rooms away!
    I don't think the video's idea of how to stop a dog from doing this would work here. They would just consider it a challenge. Toilet paper can be shredded while still on the roll!
    You know that feeling when you've finished all your quilting projects and your studio is perfectly clean???? Me neither.

    It's not how fast you sew, it's how well you sew fast! Wait, I think that's supposed to be MOW!
