What Happened to Colored Toilet Paper?

Remember this?  Where did it go?  When did it go?  I can't remember a campaign to end the production of this stuff.  And yet it no longer exists.  If you do a little research on the web (how bad is it that you and I are researching toilet paper), you'll find that marketing campaigns, bathroom styles and colors, and people's allergies are mostly to blame for its disappearance.  And really, wasn't that yellow stuff just awful, especially if you used the restroom after someone else who neglected to flush?  And did they make a beige color, or am I just imagining that?

Sorry, I was watching Seinfeld the other day, and George was saying that toilet paper hadn't changed in 50 years, and Elaine and Jerry disagreed.  I guess they were right!

And I'm ready for the weekend.  Can you tell?


  1. I think colored TP stopped being manufactured in the early '80s, I remember it well!!! We always used to buy a brand called White Cloud in Orange, Pink, Green and Blue!!! The reason colored TP stopped being manufactured is because a group of Crazy-Ass, Enviromentalist Wackos supposedly bought some I think and said that they were experiencing extremely bad rashes from wiping their butts with it because of what the dyes used to make colored TP did to them, Which is FLAT-OUT BS!!!! I wiped my butt clean with a wide variety of colored TP from 1975 to 1983 and NEVER experienced ANY bad rashes whatsoever!!!! But those Wacko Morons apparently won their case & the courts ruled in their favor, It's amazing we still have colored paper towels though!!!

  2. You can't just TP a home with plain white. How lame. Where are the colors?
