We try. People will grab it out of your cart if you leave it unattended.

Please don't confuse the mundane with the sublime. Getting a small cup of bleach and a paper towel for cleaning is not some kind of communion from Mister Clean.

It might be if one suppresses the distance between Mister Clean and his consumers.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Seattle is a ghost town in the downtown area. I haven't had a commute to work so light in ages.

We're out of Germ-X. I had to pour in rubbing alcohol in the pump bottle with the remnant that the pump could not reach. Still working 70 hours a week.

Ya. It's called facial tissue. Or paper towel.
When my dad was a child they didn't have toilet paper. Neither did his parents or theirs.
Hmmm...how can we possibly live without it.

The Farmer's Almanac in the late 1800's came with a hole in the corner to make it easier to hang in the outhouse.

You might enjoy this:

"The first commercially packaged toilet paper was made in 1857 by Joseph Gayetty. The paper was wet with aloe and had his name printed on every sheet. It was sold as a medical product, and claimed to prevent hemorrhoids. The product wasn’t very successful, because most people had a hard time paying the equivalent of $12 for 500 sheets when there were so many free options available.

The mass production of toilet paper continued, however, and perforated rolls like what we use today were patented in 1871 by Zeth Wheeler. The Scott brand made toilet paper rolls popular beginning in 1890, because it was sold to hotels and drug stores. Many people were uncomfortable buying the product, because Americans were embarrassed by their own bodily functions at the time. Toilet paper was literally uncomfortable until the 1930s, in fact, because it contained splinters.

In the late 1800s and early 1900s, indoor plumbing and flush toilets were becoming more common, so Americans were forced to deal with their issues and buy toilet paper that would not cause clogs or damage to pipes. Another big advancement in the toilet paper industry came in 1928, when the Hoberg Paper Company introduced Charmin toilet paper, gave it a feminine logo, and advertised its softness instead of its purpose. The product was extremely successful, and toilet paper quickly became a necessity instead of a luxury item reserved only for royalty or the very wealthy."

Re toilet paper:
Yes, there are alternatives. However, many are not properly educated or experienced in their use. Things are being flushed down the toilet that shouldn't and this can lead to things getting much much worse.
You can use wet newspaper as a substitute. Don't flush it.
I've used a Wheel Deals and Nickel Nick.
You can use diaper wipes, don't flush them.
Not all flushable wipes are flushable. The ones that are come with instructions to not flush more than one at a time. Adhere to that.
Corn husks work. Don't flush them.
Lots of plants work, research and positively identify.
You can use snow. Location matters.
You can use a rock and leave it in the sun to dry out. Not too fun. See also snow.
Best alternative is to jump in the shower, IMO.

Keep in mind if people keep flushing nonflushables or over flushing sortaflushables this can lead not only to massive hygiene issues but damage the water supply.
You do not want to damage the water supply, trust me.

Or you can install a bidet and reduce your TP by 75% or more. I really don't understand why the U.S. don't use bidets...

There was this Japanese toilet seat with all of these multi functions for sale at the thrift store once. I was intrigued, but not enough to buy a used toilet seat.
