Frankly, it was only a matter of time before someone created “The Coronavirus Toilet Paper Calculator” thanks to the crazy, hoarding of TP during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Created by Ben Sassoon and Sam Harris, “The Coronavirus Toilet Paper Calculator” does exactly what you think it does: Estimates how long your current supply of toilet paper will last while practicing social distancing or self-quarantining.

The calculator has many options to estimate how long your toilet paper supply will last. To get a basic understanding, simply enter how many rolls you currently have and how many trips to the bathroom you make in a day. However, there are more advanced metrics in the calculator including
“Average number of wipes per trip,” “Sheets per wipe,” “Sheets on roll,” “People in household” and  “Days of quarantine.”

Of course, not all bathroom trips are created equal, so these numbers are obviously an estimation, but nonetheless, it should be somewhat helpful to many. The site even helps drive home a point we all should keep in mind: “Not everyone is able to get to a store and stock up on toilet roll. Don’t be selfish.”
