A GENIUS mum has shared a simple trick to make loo roll last longer – and it means your kids use way less each time.
The budget-savvy Australian mum wanted to ensure the kids weren't wasting paper each time they go to the toilet – and it means no rationing either.
The trick is to squash the roll before popping it onto theholder which makes it harder for it to spin out of control.
This, in turn, means less time spent tugging at the loo roll and will stop them from grabbing "way too much."
She shared the hack on Facebook where desperate mums praised the clever (and much needed) hack.
She teased: "Kids home from school? Going through toilet paper faster than usual?"
Before showing exactly how she puts the paper on the holder.
Needless to say, other parents were keen to find a solution for the disappearing toilet roll in their own homes and many vowed to give it a go.
"This would be perfect for us, my daughter pulls it and it comes off. then she calls me because the toilet paper is running," one mum laughed.
And it appears the trick doesn't just stop small children from ripping through a roll of toilet paper as many joked they need to use the trick on their partners.
"I will be doing this for my partner," one woman said.
Another agreed writing: "I will do this for my husband, I hear the toilet roll holder and just cringe.'
But not every one was a fan of the hack, with one person dubbing it "evil".
Some even said it would work and that their kids would still find a way to waste it.
"Wouldn't work for my kids, they would keep on pulling," one woman said.
Other mums thanked the poster for her tips – with few admitting they'd normally ration it out, allowing only a couple sheets at a time.
"I used to put it out of reach so they had to yell out for me to ration it for them,"one mum said.
And another added: "I draw a line on the wall three or four squares down – it is an easy measurement for all."
Meanwhile, one mum started making her own loo roll 3 years ago and only washes it once a week.
