Wad. The crevices in the paper make for more efficient absorption and, uh, detailing. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

Fold. I mean I just pull it off in a long strip and kind of fold it over a few times. Sometimes if I get too much, it's really more like a folded wad. Or maybe a wadded fold. My 3 year old crumples it up in a bunch. The biggest problem with just balling it up is it might feel thick, but there may be spaces. I realize your finger can rip through toilet paper, but it is more likely just to go through the space in a wad than rip through the folded parts. I hate when I have a bunch of toilet paper and somehow something goes wrong and I have a finger poking through into...well, you get the idea. It never happens if I'm just peeing.<br><br>
Yes, yes, I know, I know, TMI!

I do TP origami. Cranes are best for crayola poops, the beak really gets into the crevices....<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/inthet.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="inthet">

i use wipes that i made perfectly hand-sized for enough coverage without folding. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
EDIT: oh, in the event that i do use TP (out of the house, etc) i THINK i wad it. i don't even know. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I should've voted other, I fold like 4 pieces for the back and wad one or two for the front.<br><br>
Folding wipes better, wadding absorbs better.<br><br>
This is very scientific.<br><br>
I do need to figure out a better cloth for pee, one reason I haven't been using cloth for pee (besides not having a place to put the used wipes in the bathroom) is that the ones I have are more wipers. They're great for when I blow my nose, but just kind of push things around when used as TP. (While I'm not trying family cloth for anything but pee until we're washing cloth diapers anyway, in a couple of emergency no-TP cases I did find that they are just fine at that end.)<br><br>
I think maybe moistening a bit first would help?

If I'm somewhere where the toilet paper is actually on the roll, I do a combination of wad and fold. Kind of folded fastly but definitely not prettily or perfectly.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">
