The age-old question: should toilet paper be over or under on the toilet roll holder?

Well worry no more! CHOICE finally have the answer to the controversial question of whether to hang your toilet paper over or under the roll.

Once and for all with no further ado we declare to you that OVER is the correct method.

CHOICE have shared that perforated toilet paper was invented in 1871 by Seth Wheeler. He subsequently re-patented his invention in roll form in 1891.

So placing your toilet paper over the roll is precisely as its originally inventor intended.

Can we finally agree now?
