DO IT YOURSELF ENTRYPUPRPOSE: To make toilet paper use more manageable for people with arthritis, use of only one hand, or other upper extremity disabilities. This article, part of a chapter entitled "Bathroom & Washing Up" discusses ways to make managing toilet paper easier. Suggestions include squeezing the roll to make the cardboard cylinder more oval than round to prevent paper from unrolling too rapidly, re-installing the holder so the roll is vertical rather than horizontal, and attaching a scrap of corduroy or terry cloth to the roller to create friction between the roller and the cardboard tube to slow unrolling.
