    toilet papers

    Hello,

    my question sounds odd but it's been bugging me since yesterday. Can I say something like that?
    There are three toilet papers. (or it rather should be with the word roll?)
    THere are three rolls of toilet paper.

    Thanks in advance.

    Toilet paper also comes in boxes or plastic packs of interleaved sheets.

    They look like a box/pack of tissues to me.
