How do you say toilet paper in your language? List also colloquial words, not only oficial. Thank you

    In Polish it's "papier toaletowy".

    With regards to the colloquialisms, you may probably find many, especially used locally or regionally. The one which I remembered was 'srajtaśma', which could be roughly translated as a 'sh*t tape'. I also seem to recall 'dupny papier'. Although, frankly speaking, I would not use either of these words in a conversation with my mum.

    "Toaletni papir", "toalet papir" and "wc papir" are all normal ways of calling it. Colloquially, there's also "drek papir".

    In Russian it is, quite literally, туалетная бумага (tual'étnaja bumága). I cannot remember anything colloquial except probably "туалетка" (tual'étka); it can be contextually shortened to just "paper" (бумага), of course.

    Czech: toaletní papír, colloquially hajzlpapír (quite common word);

    hajzl (colloquially WC, bog, crapper) < Austrian German Häusel, Scheißhäusel + papír < Germ. Papier;

    Actually I can: "сортирка" (sortírka, [sɐɾ'tʲiɾkə]). :) That's what we used to call it in the army most of the time. (Сортир is a colloquial word for a toilet, from French "sortir" - "to exit".)
