Coloured Toilet Paper

When was the last time you purchased a roll of toilet tissue in any colour other than white?



Toilet paper was once available in a rainbow of colours such as pink...



Green...



Lavender, blue, and yellow.



You could choose a colour of toilet paper to match or complement the colour of your bathroom.



Coloured toilet paper was popular in the U.S.A. and Canada until the 1980s when it fell out of favour because of health and environmental concerns.

Coloured toilet paper is back.

The scented three-ply toilet tissue by Renova will come in Black, Fuchsia, Cyan, Red, Yellow, Orange, and Apple Green.



And it has built-in moisturizing lotion.

They say their product is eco-friendly and dermatologically tested.



Will you wipe your butt with it?

  2. They used to sell "Woody Wipe" toilet paper in Ann Arbor in the 1970s.

    Now, it is something different...

  3. The red toilet paper is enough to make me queasy.

    They stopped making the colored toilet paper in the early 1970s becausethe dyes polluted the eco system, and they gave women UTI's.

    So I'll stay with white. And remember, check your poo paper for anything abnormal and get a COLONOSCOPY people. Colon Cancer is the most easily prevented disease, but you have to get your poop pie scoped out!

  4. Well, I was hoping, preferably for something that would compliment the Virgin Cherry Pink.

  5. If I was confronted with black toilet paper, I would find another place to do my business. Possibly my host's bed.

  6. Definitely! I like it!
    Not the black and the purple, but all the other colours, especially the organge. They say that since they introduced the colour series in 2005 there are no complaints - and the built-in moisturizer is simply charming!

    The fifties' green bathroom above is well known to me. My flat has a grey one from the seventies.

      Do you do "your business" in the dark?

  8. Funny, I didn't even notice that they stopped making the colored tp till you pointed it out. My mother used the ones that had floral prints on them.

    I guess I'll stick with the Sears & Roebuck catalogue...

    1. I guess Goethe writes somewhere that he went to an outhouse in the dark while travelling to Italy; the paper felt funny, so he took it with him out to the light, only to discover that they used a cut up incunabulum, a pre-1500 printed book.
      Shit, I can't find it yet!

    2. Have you tried using a "sniffer dog" Mr Mags?

  9. I prefer to continue using old newspaper and collected tissue wraps from boxed apples... Have you tried wiping your arse with a kindle?

    1. Sandpaper solves the problem, dear Princess.

    2. Thanks for the tip Mr Mags...
      I tried it and I've discovered that sandpaper provides a much smoother finish than a "Kindle"

  10. Coloured bog roll has never been away in the UK but only in delicate pastel shades. I read somewhere that white toilet paper can cause irritation due to the bleach they use to whiten it.

    The question you have to ask yourself is what colour goes best with brown? I think a nice fresh yellow.

    1. MITZI: I once moved into an apartment with a brown & yellow bathroom.

  11. Most definitely not. I prefer a bidet with attendants to gently blow on my butt until dry.

    2. I remember once using the bathroom at a friend's house, a REALLY HOT GUY, and there was no toilet paper left. I saw a box of Bounce on the dryer so I took two sheets and... you know.

      Unfortunately, that's the only bouncing that occured.

    3. HUGGY JON: Never leave home without some of these.

      You’ll thank me later.
