Fill a high-sided bowl with warm water. Remove the toilet paper from the roll and put it into the water. Make sure it all gets wet. 2. Remove the toilet paper from the bowl and squeeze out as much water as you can. Dump the water out of the bowl and put the wad of toilet paper back in. 3. Break the paper into 1" (2.5 cm) chunks. 4. Add the remaining ingredients to the bowl and mix using an electric mixer. The mixer will pull the fibers of the toilet paper apart and turn it into pulp. Mix for at least three minutes to make sure all the paper has been mixed in with the other ingredients. If you still see some lumps, use a fork or your fin- gers (with the mixer turned off!) to break them apart, then mix some more.
