Toilet Paper is one of those staples folks rarely leave a supermarket without, but, in case you missed it, it seems that more and more people are turning away from the standard TP to become more environmentally friendly with their "business."
Apparently the latest new thing is something called a family cloth, which is basically reusable small cloth squares that people used to wipe and then put in a basket, and wash for reuse. Some people only use it for urinating, and go back to toilet paper for pooping, while others use them for everything. And while people can certainly make their own family cloths, they are such a big trend that there are a lot of different options on the market, and they come in a wide variety of patterns.
"In my mind, buying and using disposable toilet paper was literally flushing money down the toilet,” one user explained. “If you’re wondering, 'Why would you want to reuse something that you wipe your genitals with?', I’d answer this question with my own question: 'Do you throw away your underpants after each use?'"
Well, no surprise, the Internet has strong opinions on such family cloths, and most people aren’t down with it. Check out the reactions below:

K: "what if you walked into someone's house and they had this?"
Both of us at the same time: "I would leave."
