triple toilet paper roll storage

bathroom hacks are rare to come by. here is hans zetterberg‘s toilet paper rack hack.


“i’ve used a cd-rack from ikea (i don’t know the name of it). i wanted to use the existing drilled holes in my wall so i used a piece of steelband to fasten the cd rack to the wall (and that’s also why the left steelband is much longer than the right). the orginal cd-rack parts are used except for the top steel rod, which i removed to allow placement of the toilet rolls.”

hans is still figuring out a system to collect the empty rolls. any ideas, anyone?

go to hans’ pictorial instructions.

    how to remove the empty rolls? cut the cardboard off with scissors or box cutters… just an idea. … or is the problem putting a new roll on?

    I have a t.p. holder that can’t be removed to add a new roll until I manage to get the cardboard of the old roll of. Grrr…I’ve found that most rolls can easily be peeled off along their seams from left to right, so long as you’ve installed the rolls with the end of the paper coming over the roll rather than under. I’ve tried this from right to left and no dice.
