BEST LEAF TO USE AS TOLIET PAPER


If you’re stuck in the woods with no toilet paper, reach for Aster Macrophyllus. Also more commonly known as the Bigleaf Aster. This leaf has a characteristically heart shape look. What makes it the perfect TP substitute is the large size and soft fuzzy feel. People in the logging industry refer to it as lumberjack’s toilet paper.

  6. It's nice to know what I can use next time I'm out there in the forest. It's better than using your sock and then throwing it away!

  17. Printed out the pic to take with me on road trips. Thank you. Some foliage, of course, is poisonous, while some has a waxy coating which...well, it's just not effective :-)

  18. Crikey, I wouldn't know the difference between that and poison ivy. I'd be in big trouble in the woods.

  19. I'll have to remember that... You know, just in case.
