Toliet Paper was invented in China, and like many early inventions, it was only available to royals and nobles at first.

My goodness, I had no idea. To think that only noble people could use this back in the day sounds crazy.

Something I make sure we never run out of! I didn't know its origin in China, but it makes sense because China is such an ancient civilization.

I wonder what the original stuff looked -- and felt-- like.
