What happens when toilet paper goes through the dryer?

Softest toilet paper EVER!
I went to get a load of clothes out of the dryer tonight.  I had forgotten that Jaycee had said in passing earlier that, "There's toilet paper in the dryer".  I blew it off when she said it.  I might have asked her some question about it, not really paying attention to the answer because I was making dinner or planting tulips or whatever it was that I was doing when she said it. 
So, when I went in to take the clothes out of the dryer, it was still kind of a suprise when I saw this:
It took me at least 5 minutes to try to pull out all of the little offending squares of white.  This is the pile that was most of what I managed to pull out.
 And just in case you're wondering. . . . . . this is what the lint trap looks like after toilet paper goes through the dryer.
I thought maybe Jaycee decided she needed warm toilet paper??  She had put one of her stuffed animals in the dryer earlier and asked if it was "warm yet".

I came out to tell my hubby that there was indeed toilet paper in the dryer and he said, "I know, I'm the one that showed Jaycee".  And we figured out what had actually happened.  The laundry room is also a half-bath.  So sometimes, rolls of toilet paper sit on top of the dryer.  My hubby had taken a load of my clothes out of the washer so that he could wash a load of shirts that he had been trying to dye black.  I'm not sure why he couldn't take the clothes that were in the dryer out so that he could put the wet clothes in the dryer!  But, my clothes must have gotten put on top of a roll of toilet paper.  And when I went to take them off the top of dryer, the roll of toilet paper went with it.

What have we learned through this? 
*Toilet paper gets really soft in the dryer--you know--from the dryer bar and all.
*My hubby puts my wet clothes on top of the dryer more often than I think.
*Jaycee did not in fact want warm toilet paper.


  1. Omg that is great! its nice to know that my man isn't the only one that has issues with chores. my guys knows that i have been buying cascade for the dishwasher for ever. yet the one time he does the dishes he puts dawn dish soap in there....bubble everwhere!

  2. My husband does that to me too, and I do his laundry. I don't know why he decides to only do laundry himself, when my things are in there! What a mess for you!

  3. We've washed a roll of toilet paper. Well, not me, but which ever child was learning how to load the washer properly and decided to skip the "put one item in at a time" and just dumped it all in. Naturally, we dried it, too. What a mess. We've washed and dried paper towels and disposable diapers, too. Does not make for happy machines!
