Kleenex will decompose just fine in compost, as will paper napkins, etc.

hello; it has been a few years since I have been Human-ring, so I don't remember if it is OK to use facial tissue instead of toilet paper-- does scent free Kleenex decompose just as well as toilet paper? thank you!

We used cedar sawdust - somewhat rotted - at two large gatherings, one in Texas and one in California, with great success. There are video clips about these on this page: http://humanurehandbook.com/videos.html. Look at the Humanure Composting at a Music Festival Using 5-Gallon Receptacles and Humanure Composting at Natural Building Conferences.

I'm wondering if cedar's rot-resistance will interfere with composting? I have an abundant source, and it smells nice too, but I don't want to use a sawdust that will inhibit composting. Has anyone had experience, good or bad with cedar or cypress sawdust?
