While many retail and grocery delivery apps are unable to snag customers a 12-pack or even a six-pack of toilet paper rolls, there is another way to get what you need.

Companies such as Proctor & Gamble and Kimberly-Clark have websites where you can either purchase an item, such as toilet paper, or utilize tools to help you find a location nearby that carries it.
For instance, Proctor & Gamble produces Charmin, among many other products, and depending on whether or not the item is available for purchase, you can buy it straight from the source. If they are out of stock, you can sign up for email notifications that will let you know when an item is available again.
