When I put four fingers on one side and a thumb on the other and squish them together, yes it is a correct word.

squish  (skwsh) 

To squeeze or crush together or into a flat mass; squash.

  Is "squish" the right word to use when referring to TP?

  The short rolls squish nicely to fit into zipper lock sandwich bag.

    Won't the short rools take up a lot of room in your pack?  I suppose you could put then on your hiking poles but then they wuld get dirty.  Better than nothing, I suppose.  Take the paper off the cardboard rolls and put it in waterproof envelopes.

Back in the mid-'90s when I was planning on hiking in '98 I saved short 
rolls.  The through hike got busted, and I am still using up those short 
rolls on section and weekend hikes.
