The Most Expensive Toilet Paper in the World

As consumers, we can cut back on a variety of things to save money, but there is one necessity that everyone must have. Toilet paper is an essential of life and running out can create a dilemma of epic proportions. It makes one wonder what people did before the creation of the soft and sturdy commodity. There were no doubt more crude versions of the hygienic wipe around, but they probably weren’t as comfortable to use.

Increasing prices of toilet paper

As you roll your shopping cart down the toilet paper aisle, you’ll see people eyeing the choices and you can tell by the looks on their faces that they’re feeling a bit of disgust at the rising prices. Some may say that “toilet paper is toilet paper and they’re all about the same.” Well, I’d have to disagree on that point. If you’ve ever used one of the thinner 1 ply types that feel like they’re just a roughed up version of cheap writing paper, you’ll know what I’m talking about. You don’t have to pay top dollar to get a decent quality that does the job adequately and doesn’t cause moments of remorse, but the stuff isn’t cheap anymore. The next time you roll your eyes at the top end mega packs that are going for between $20 and $30 a bundle, think about what we’re about to show you. We did our research to find out just how much the most expensive toilet paper in the world costs and what we discovered was a big shock!

The most expensive roll of toilet paper in the world

Never mind the extra fluffy double rolls in a mega pack, the price for just one roll of 22 carat gold toilet paper goes for $1,500,000. In case you’re wondering, this isn’t a joke. It was originally created by an Australian man who used 22 carat gold flakes to create this amazing, yet expensive single roll of toilet paper. It was originally made for promotional purposes, but the roll is really up for sale. News of the 22 carat toilet paper has circulated throughout the world, but there haven’t been any takers yet. The roll went on the market in 2010 and it’s still available if you’re so inclined.

Would anyone really use 22 carat gold toilet paper?

The average person wouldn’t dream of soiling something so valuable, because there’s little doubt that once the roll is used as a bathroom toiletry, its value will plummet. There was speculation that a super wealthy buyer may do it for a thrill, particularly a fun loving party type with money to burn and a devil may care attitude, but not even one of these guys possesses the level of disrespect for money or art, to do such a thing. We’re pretty sure that the odds are stacked against the novelty toilet paper roll ever selling.

Not sure of the quality

There hasn’t been a lot of information released on the quality of the toilet paper. All we really know is that it’s three ply quality, it’s safe to use and it’s up for sale. This tells us little about the comfort level or if the gold will flake off when you try to use it. Better not to take the chance. How soft could a metal infused tissue possibly be?

Bonus included for the buyer

There’s no getting around the fact that this 22 carat toilet paper roll is novel, cool and worth a fortune, but it’s not really the type of thing that most collector’s would go for. It just doesn’t seem to fit into any real collectible genre we could immediately identify. If anyone out there does decide to take the plunge and make the purchase, there are a couple of perks that go with the sale. Upon receipt of the payment in full, the owner will gift wrap the roll and deliver it personally to whoever buys it. We’re assuming that it includes anywhere in the world. But that’s not all that you’ll get. They’re also throwing in a complimentary bottle of champagne with the purchase, although it’s not stipulated which brand, nor year.

Final thoughts

I believed that this would make me feel better about the rising costs of toilet paper. I was wrong. I looked at the skinny rolls of less than premium quality being offered at the price of $6.99 for 6 and I didn’t feel better at all. If anything, they looked more wretched in comparison.
