TP for dry camping

Any recommendations for toilet paper for use in camp site without running water? I can go to a place like Caballes, but how about the TP sold in most other other stores? It's over 50 years since I used an outhouse and did any serious camping. Now that I have this land I need to become reacquainted with current products and camping practices.

Why pay twice the price for some "special paper"?
We had a two holer out in the wood shed that had been there for 80 years and we always used regular TP.
It had been there so long there was corn cobs and torn out pages from the Sear's catalog they used long ago.

Baby wipes? Or aren't they biodegradable enough?

Norm, we reconfigured a old camp chair with a toilet seat (bottom) screwed to the frame and a 5 gallon bucket under it. We used "blue" water in it and it dissolved everything making it pourable. I think RV centers carry it and it isn't that expensive. Rule #1 when driving the lav truck at the airport is "don't drink the blue water". Odd the lav truck not only pulls out all the crappy blue water, but supplies the aircraft with potable water. I always questioned that.

I don't think I want to drink the water swerved on airplanes. Maybe that's why those little bottles of liquor are so popular.
