DP has bought peach toilet roll.

It is on the toilet roll holder.

It is making my teeth itch every time I walk past.

Toilet roll needs to be white. Coloured loo roll is the work of the devil.

At least he has hung it the right way round, though.

is bog roll an acceptable term?

YANBU, since having a white tiled bathroom I have only bought white toilet roll. People who buy pastel coloured toilet roll may as well have a knitted crinoline lady to cover it up or worse still a knitted poodle.

I tried to get some of this stuff
for DHs stocking at Christmas but it had sold out grin

My ds has ASD and will only use Andrex Shea Butter - nothing else will do.I can only hope that they never discontinue it sad

Peach! shock
I won't even have white, only neutral.

I go to m&s specifically to buy their white loo rolls with silver stars on.....don't do coloured roll though.

or worse still a knitted poodle

I read that as knitted paedophile blush

I've relegated the peach stuff to 'emergency only' and swapped out for white. Feel much better now.

chicken of course bog roll is perfectly acceptable.

fru apologies you were the very excellent exception to everyone saying - yeuch - toilet

YANBU - he is even so evil that he is putting your health at risk, those colours, & I believe especially the nastiest ones such as peach - gives you thrush you knowwink

I believe it is referred to as "champagne" coloured, not peach.

Cravingdairy Wed 10-Apr-13 19:36:49

YANBU. My parents have peach toilet roll and I hate it passionately.

FreshLeticia Wed 10-Apr-13 19:36:49

oh dear, LTB definitely

LOL at "shit tickets"!

RenterNomad Wed 10-Apr-13 20:19:55

"Bog roll" is indeed acceptable, chickensaladagain. It's extremely lofty and educated to be amused by scatological matters, viz the (Monty) Python boys' Oxbridge backgrounds!

It's illegal to have coloured arse roll.

HTH

thegreylady Wed 10-Apr-13 20:49:32

Apparently some of the coloured ones have nasty chemicals which were said to increase all sorts of health risks.better a bit of bleach I think grin

YANBU - coloured paper is awful. Especially the blue stuff, it makes me worry I'm diseased.

ALittleStranger Wed 10-Apr-13 22:01:10

paperworry I love the shea butter stuff, but the brown wrapper is just wrong.

When I was little my mum bought this shiny hard paper sort. It had a specially treated non absorbent shiny surface. I wont elaborate on its performance. Even that was white thoughsmile

I haven't bought white toilet roll for years due to the chlorine bleach.

RFLMum That was Izal! My Great Aunt had it as did my primary school. anything that came into contact with it just slid off again as I remember... fairly disgusting but it said "medicated" on the box so I think people thought it was more hygienic. They were so, so wrong.....

White bog roll only here. And white towels. I also have a strong white bed linen theme. I possibly have issues..,

Still18atheart Wed 10-Apr-13 23:24:32

YANBU Loo roll needs to be white. However, I thought that peach coloured loo paper was supposed to be more eco - friendly.

ravenAK Wed 10-Apr-13 23:29:56

Remove the peach loo roll, stick it in a cupboard somewhere. Replace with correctly hung white paper.

There will come a day when the norovirus hits on the same day as 'flu AND your local corner shop is closed due to a rabies outbreak. You'll be jolly glad of it then...
