Changing an empty roll of toilet paper is a courteous gesture to everyone who shares the rest room with you. Check your bathroom's paper dispenser regularly to get a gauge of when it needs changing. Swap out empty rolls at home or work in just a few seconds. Teach this thoughtful task to family members or coworkers so everyone shares the paper changing responsibilities.

  1. 1

    Slide the toilet paper holder to the right with your thumb and forefinger. This will compress the inner spring inside the holder's tube.

  2. 2

    Keep the spring compressed and slide the tube out of the wall mount.

  3. 3

    Remove the old toilet paper tube. Throw it away or save it for a recycling project. Place a new roll of toilet paper on the holder.

  4. 4

    Flip the tube so that the paper unrolls in the manner you prefer -- over the top or under.

  5. 5

    Compress the inner spring by squeezing the holder tube at both ends. Pop the holder tube back into place and release the spring.
