China, or say, early medieval china was the first country where the use of paper for hygiene was documented. It was recorded in 6th century AD. However, affluent people used to wipe themselves with materials such as leaves, water, sand, stones, grass etc. It varied from country to country and also depends on climatic conditions. There are many countries where toilet paper is not considered to be hygienic enough. Countries falling under this category are usually developing or under-developed nations. Here, the production and consumption of bath tissues are not on a very large scale. They consider using water to be the best way of cleaning up after the defecation process.
Wet and misty toilet rolls, also known as wet wipes, were first introduced in the United Kingdom in the 1990s. Since they were moist enough, they were considered to be more hygienic and pure. Slowly, its production started taking placewidely on a large scale.

Lately, due to COVIDPANDEMIC, shortages and scarcities of bath tissue paper were reported in 2020. Many people thought that there was some commotion and disruption with the supply of rolls but it turned out that it was a result of the fact that people were anxiously buying the rolls in huge quantities. Jumbo roll bath tissues were supplied to masses in bulk. Also, there is no other alternative to bath tissue rolls. Therefore, people bought all of it in bulk. In fact, in the United States, about half of the grocery stores were out of stock of toilet rolls. During the pandemic, the demand for commercial toilet rolls decreased to a huge extent, whereas, the demand for consumer toilet paper, that is, the toilet roll used by households, just went like a shot. They were too much in demand.
