What are your thoughts ?

Because the hole was plenty big, and TP was expensive, dad would cut/ tear regular newspapers. The ink must have been better than nowadays because we didn't get a black bum from it. [chuckles]
The closest thing I found is still being sold on Amazon for -can you believe it- $128.80:
They have improved on the model as the gush of water is now coming from *under* the rim of the contraption. Ours had a big water tank and a chain to yank it open. The water would fall from about shoulder height and be [somewhat] guided by a pipe that had the purpose of irrigating all *around* your feet. It didn't always work that way. That is the only time mom would cuss!

In that one I found out about 'pee rags' (here they are called 'family cloth', but it's about the same). And then I made a pile of them using old towels. That was a few years ago. I still use them and am glad with this system. I use them (as the name 'pee rags' says) for pee only. For poop I still use t.p., so that is there for guests too (they never understand why those rags are there).
