Most toilet paper in China is sold without a cardboard tube in the middle. America doesn’t have this kind of toilet paper. While you can find toilet paper with a cardboard tube in the center here in China, it’s not popular and a little hard to find.
In America, the tube in the middle of the toilet paper is used to hang the paper from a spindle. But what about in China? Where does one put the toilet paper? I’ve been in the homes of several local families in China. Many Chinese people buy a plastic basket in which to place the toilet paper. So I did the same.
