Interesting read. I am from India and yes, we do not use toilet paper either and I agree with Mr Tom Thumb that most of us find it strange using toilet paper. I am here in the US now and the struggle is real. I have a bucket and mug handy nearby. Hotels and public restrooms are the issue. I have to carry around a bottle or mug which can be the center of attention at times. I have got to try out the rest of your article though. The minimalistic approach. I hate throwing stuff away and I have got tons of things lying around that I don’t even use. Hope your wife’s dad doesn’t advise you to take help anymore!
