To only want white toilet roll in my house?

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.

YABU to want only white toilet paper Andrex shea butter paper is beigeish and is the nicest.

YANBU to think that buying peach paper that has no special features is a bad move.

(I mistyped there and wrote "shite toilet paper" to begin with - yes W and S are near to each other on the keyboard!)

oh for a coloured bathroom suite! After a lifetime in rented flat s the magnolia and white suite combo is starting to get very samey (apart from a glorious interlude with a blue suite! )

Our house is a doer upper and we have...wait for it ... a yellow bathroom suite! We can't afford a new one at the moment and it is not broken or dirty so even though it's not fashionable it's here for a while. The possibilities toilet roll wise are quite varied.

I buy mega-packs of whatever is on special offer at Costco or their Kirkland own brand.

For Christmas this time I bought M&S white with silver stars (I couldn't bring myself to buy The Snowman bum paper)

I love the M&S rose pattern but it wouldn't go in my bathroom or cloakroom (and I don't think DH would be enamoured)

White is awful! Agree with others about the bleached aspect. I haven't bought it in years and dp knows better than to buy white. I'm been buying the Shea Butter stuff as it's been on offer at Tesco but I'm having trouble convincing the dds that you only need a couple of sheets instead of the usual 20 and we have to keep unblocking the toilet angry

Why isn't cream more readily available or off-white (unbleached)?

Izal loo paper.

My Grandpa used to use that. We used to use it as tracing paper. He would get most cross about it. Having seen the price of it recently I have to say I now understand his annoyance grin

It was a bit like that slidy stuff that school used to have..that you had to crunch up before trying to dry

Simon cowell uses black - just something I'd drop in here. I don't know why or how I know this..

And dh brought home some blue scented loo roll recently. Loads of it. sad

I forgot to buy loo roll at asda and last night I had to go out to the corner shop where all I could get was blue loo roll shock

Frescolita Thu 11-Apr-13 07:55:56

Ummm....*DP has bought peach toilet roll*. DP has bought ...toilet roll. Jealous! My DH does not buy toilet roll- white, peach, printed or any other colour. He casually observes, after using the last sheet on the last roll in the house, "honey, we (you) might need to buy toilet roll".

TheRealFellatio Thu 11-Apr-13 04:47:51

YANBU. and not only that, but if a colour really must be used then peach is absolutely the vilest colour to pick.

Peach is always a vile colour. Even peaches aren't fucking peach are they? hmm

sashh Thu 11-Apr-13 03:59:08

That is most definitely the wrong way to hang toilet roll in this house.

I suspect you have never used an outside toilet.

OP

Leave the bastard

I miss the days of coloured bathroom suites and co-ordinating bog roll. In the 70s and 80s, wiping your arse on a colour co-ordinated shit ticket was seen as the height of sophistication.

White bathroom suits smack of bland anonymity and are a step backwards for humankind. If I ever own a home, I would want to install or preserve the existing coloured bathroom suit.

12 compact therefore more economical white bathroom tissue.

ripsishere Thu 11-Apr-13 01:37:24

We saw some black stuff in the local supermarket last week.
DD was very keen that I should buy four rolls.
Since four cost the same as 12, I said no.
I am concerned I have stunted her in some way.

I use bleachy-white loo roll to save me the bother of toothpasting my starfish.

AudrinaAdare Wed 10-Apr-13 23:36:39

We would have this lavatory paper in our house if we could afford to buy it.

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...

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.

Filofax Wed 10-Apr-13 23:24:10

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

MrsGrowbag Wed 10-Apr-13 23:23:05

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.....

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

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

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