If someone in the restroom runs out of toilet paper and that person calls out to a person outside (at home),what will sound natural:

The toilet paper has run out.

I've run out of toilet paper.

I've used all the toilet paper up.

The toilet paper is all used up.

Do these sentences sound natural?

Looking at your sentences

The toilet paper has run out.

is ambiguous: has the toilet roll run away?


I've run out of toilet paper.

does work well.


I've used all the toilet paper up.

is misphrased, it should be

I've used up all the toilet paper.


The last one

The toilet paper is all used up.

Is poor construction.


But, saying there is no toilet paper is a statement of fact, not of need. What you could say is

Can you please bring me some more toilet paper?

The most natural sounding one is the second one:

I've run out of toilet paper.

The first one is arguably as natural.

The third one is ok too, but I would change it to:

I've used up all the toilet paper

The last one doesn't sound natural to me at all.
