Showerproof TP holder?

Does anyone know how TP holders were/are designed for combination toilet/shower ... so it doesn't get wet? I can envision a hooded design, but maybe there is something out there already.

The cheapest way to make one is to use a 4 inch or so diameter chunk of PVC. The TP will come out the side, and will only get exposed to indirect shower water.
BTW, from the thread title, i was intrigued by the concept of water proof toilet paper...

You can use the old stand-by from our outhouse days - get thee a big, plastic coffee can with cover. Works a charm and keeps the mice from chewing up the TP, too! (Doesn't deter porcupines, though. Drat.)

The earlier wet bath models had a plastic c-shaped unit so it was easy to take the TP of the holder and set it on the side of the sink while showering.

I drilled a few holes in the bottom of the corncob bucket so the water drains out. That way the cobs stay moist and soft, but don't get soaked and start to rot. . .

The TP holder is housed in the cabinet and protected by tambour on my Tradewind.

22 ccd

I had a wetbath in my former 22ft CCD - but that bath had a built in shower curtain that ran along the wall where the TP holder was. It also covered the towel bar. When you wanted to take a shower you could pull it all the way to the door and even cover over the throne's seat if you wanted to. The wet bath in the 22 was in the rear streetside corner and the curtain had one edge curved to match the back wall and held in place with snaps. Worked fine.

I notice you have a vintage unit - it may also have had a similar curtain at one time.

Showerproof TP holder?

I knew that I had run across a water proof toilet paper holder when looking for new bathroom fittings for a rental property. A quick search of the Internet, and I found the article that I was thinking of -- Dry-Roll Toilet Paper Dispenser.

Good luck with your investigation!

Kevin

I like that "DryRoll Toilet Paper Holder" not sure about cutting a hole for the recessed design, but since I am completly rebuilding the inside... I may. The only curtain protection is behind the "user" under the window and I don't think I have a tambour (whatever that is) The jury is out and thanks for all the ideas everyone. I don't want to detract from my vintage aspirations, so ...somewhere between the "corn-cob" idea and a turbocharged Bidet.

Terry,

Sounds like maybe rolls Visqueen might work as water proof toilet paper....
