How about using a gold toilet paper worth Dh4.7million?

Well, an Australian company Toilet Paper Man has produced a 3-ply roll made of gold and embellished with 22-carat gold flakes, reports

On their website, the company claims that this golden toiletry is “the most expensive toilet paper…”  at a whooping AU$1,376,900.00 (S$1.6 million/ Dh4.7m).

Toilet Paper Man also claims that it is ‘100 per cent usable and safe’.

According to news site International Business Times, the lavish roll of toilet paper even comes with a bottle of champagne with the purchase.

Currently, the Australia online company, has only one such golden toilet roll in stock. It is unclear if Toilet Paper Man will be manufacturing more.
However, this is not the first luxury toiletry.

In 2011, a golden toilet was unveiled in Haikou, China which was made at a cost of 1.28 million yuan (S$260,000).

Frances Perraudin from US magazine Time's online site claims that the most expensive toilet hails from Hong Kong. A 24-carat gold toilet built in 2001, with  gold covering everything in the restroom, even its sink, reported Perraudin. And was worth then a US$29 million (S$36 million).
