    Right on, I was about to recommend the same, but i'll add this , if you have very sensitive skin beware using any plant matter as TP. Caution also to individual that have hemorrhoids, don't get yourself an infection.

    When I was in my teens, I was in some woods where most of the branches with leaves were out of my reach, but the ground was covered with low, somewhat broad-leafed plants when nature called and I just had to answer. When I finished my business, I reached over to grab the nearest plant to finish things off, but realized my error just in time. The plant I almost used for TP was indeed poison ivy. So I reached for another nearby plant, but it too was poison ivy. At this point I looked around and realized that ALL the plants I had been squatting in were poison ivy. After some deliberation I decided to jump up with my pants around my ankles and grab some foliage off a nearby tree.

    Moral of the story: look really hard at a plant before using it for TP, or else.

    Just use your hand and then pimp slap the least liked member of your party.

    Jk. I pack to and burn it. Although I have used a wide variet of other methods as well.

    When I was a young lad in boy scouts, I read that the leaf of a tulip tree was the one safe leaf to use because it lacks most of the resins and saps you usually find in leaves. I've never used it, because I have a baggie full of baby wipes that I always hike and camp with because they are good for a variety of uses. All else fails, you could use a hankie.

    And don't forget the sticks/twigs!!

    I don't think it's asking too much to bring some napkins/a small tp roll/ or wet naps with you.
