A woman has gone viral on TikTok after revealing she is using her 18-month-old son’s clothes as toilet paper in a video that has since been viewed more than a million times
A mother who is doing her best to provide her family with an eco-friendly environment has revealed how she uses her son’s old clothes.
The mother-of-one Alice has attracted a following of more than 70,000 people on her TikTok ( @crunchyipadbaby ), with videos of her alternative lifestyle and parenting style, from not forcing a sleep schedule on her 18-month-old son Fern or allowing him to eat dirt and rocks.
But one video has garnered more attention than most.
Alice explained that when Fern’s clothes are no longer appropriate, for example when they are stained or no longer fit, they are put to another use.
Her family uses her as toilet paper.

In a video that has been viewed more than a million times, Alice shows several stained short sleeve vests sitting on the toilet.
Since its release, the video has garnered more than 64,000 likes and dozens of comments, many from viewers who seemed to like the idea.
“My mom used to do this to all my baby clothes when I was younger except she made rags out of them, we still have some,” shared one viewer.
“That’s so smart Alice!” added another. “But I’d be way too sentimental to wipe my but with a favorite onesie.”
While a third suggested: “You should cut them up for easier use.”
Someone else revealed they all tie stained rompers, and another said: “This is really brilliant, especially since the fabric of the clothes is softer than the towels.”
Alice later confirmed that she washes the old baby clothes after each use, along with the towels they use on the bidet.
This comes as a mother sparks a breastfeeding debate after posting a video on TikTok explaining how she taught her two-year-old son boundaries.
