The return of the Bog Roll Fairy

Seth takes a 'phone call from Pansy at Gypsy Lane, wanting lavatory requisites.

"I'll put some bog rolls on the van for you," he says.

"No, we can't have bog rolls."

"Why not?"

"We've got one of those new disabled toilets and we're not allowed to use bog rolls with it. We've got to use antiseptic wipes."

If we can find enough nails to pegs the sheets onto we may well find a use for the paper we can't recycle after all.

Hmm. Despite the fact that research has shown that regular use of such antiseptic, antibacterial lotions and wipes only kills the least dangerous bacteria, does nothing to the most dangerous, and also contributes to increasing antibiotic resistance in germs both in people and the environment.

Roll on, bog rolls.

That's not really a problem for us: our procurement processes ensure that the wipes are so fearfully cheap they leave a full microbial ecosystem healthy enough to repel any more pathogenic invaders.
