What's the right way to hang a toilet roll? Should flap be under or over, in our out?

News Shopper: What do you think is the proper way to hang a toilet roll? What do you think is the proper way to hang a toilet roll?

FOR today’s burning question we’re looking to get to the bottom of which way a roll of toilet paper should hang.

As per the image above, are you someone who prefers the hanging piece facing towards the wall when the roll’s on a holder or do you like the flap to be facing inwards towards the toilet? Should the paper unroll from behind (under) the roll or in front (over) the roll?

Where do you stand, or rather sit, on toilet roll orientation?

Stephen Sangster suggested this as a burning question on Twitter, and gave his opinion as: “I think it should hang closest to the wall.”

Let’s see if we can crack this one and wipe it off the list by finding a consensus on the right way to do it.

The Burning Questions feature aims to resolve some of the oddities of social etiquette, settle some of life’s perennial arguments and answer some of those tricky questions with readers’ collective knowledge.

If there is an issue you’re always squabbling about with workmates or friends or something that makes you go hmmm, email me with your suggestions for future burning questions to ask.
