shabbat 81

what they used to use for toilet paper

but it is dangerous to just take anything that comes to hand.

(when determining what size stone one is liable if carry on shabbat, there is a discussion about carrying stones used to clean after defecation. shards of earthenware were prohibited. one opinion is that they were forbidden due to witchcraft.. for english translation of this talmud page, see here)
