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.

YANBU - by law only white should be available.

My DH once got coloured toilet paper, note it was just the once wink

May as well make it brown. confused

Messandmayhem Wed 10-Apr-13 18:01:30

YANBU, coloured loo roll is wrong

StuffezLaBouche Wed 10-Apr-13 18:01:47

Yessss! You can be my pal Neo!
Incidentally, Aldi do an awful loo roll called aroma - it's scented. Of all the products you really wouldn't want to go around sniffing...

Black toilet roll you say? I don't approve. You'd have to peer very carefully to make sure all 'debris' had been wiped from bumhole onto said paper.

Only white here and it has to put on the right way....or else! My MIL has toilet roll patterned with bright flowers and stars and shells adorning her loo. God knows where she gets it? I may have to stop using her facility until she stops buying it

My in-laws have several loos in their house and all of them have different patterned loo roll, some of which is scented.

Nice for a change (except the scented stuff - puke).

Luckily DH and I agree on white only.

DP was given novelty toilet paper one christmas by his mother. It had crosswords on it. Never again. He spends long enough in the toilet. To be discouraged at all costs.

Dawndonna Wed 10-Apr-13 18:05:56

I only have white. But stars and seahorses appeal, I may have to have a wander tomorrow!

SirChenjin Wed 10-Apr-13 18:06:01

YANBU at all. DH bought some coloured stuff recently (he's colour blind, quite why I trusted him I don't know) and I used far more than was necessary for each wipe just to finish the stuff off so that we could return to white.

I also get quite twitchy when he returns home with <shudder> patterned kitchen roll.

I've never heard anything so shockingshock

It's definitely grounds for divorce.

chickensaladagain Wed 10-Apr-13 18:07:57

Coloured paper never flushes away properly either -don't know why but it is a fact in my mum's house anyway

EverythingInMjiniature Wed 10-Apr-13 18:09:05

I like that pale creamy yellow one best, but I think I'm on my own.

Bowlersarm Wed 10-Apr-13 18:10:50

You Are All Wrong! Not least because you are using the word 'toilet' wink

Bathroom suites should be white - loo paper coloured

AnyoneforTurps Wed 10-Apr-13 18:14:50

You are most certainly NBU. Especially peach <<<<shudders>>>>>

Bluebell99 Wed 10-Apr-13 18:15:05

I have pretty toilet roll with stars and owls and dots and patterns. You can buy it in waitrose of course smile Made by Andrex I think.

digerd Wed 10-Apr-13 18:17:23

When we had a white suite but pink tiles on floor and walls < my choice>, we had pink loo roll.

In Germany some years ago, they had much cheaper recycled paper loo rolls, and DH said we'll use them.
They were hard and a grey colour.

Now I use soft white quilted.

UnChartered Wed 10-Apr-13 18:18:43

unless it's blue

i rather like blue toilet roll, but do buy white

what i can't abide though is NNs for toilet roll.

like 'loo roll' wtaf is a 'loo' anyhow?

or 'shit tickets' <eyes DS>

PickledInAPearTree Wed 10-Apr-13 18:21:43

Or poo paper <eyes dp who is old enough to know better>

I can do any colour but peach.

UnChartered Wed 10-Apr-13 18:29:04

bum rub, anyone <boak>

and anyone who calls it toilet tissue has to eat a whole roll

BlackholesAndRevelations Wed 10-Apr-13 18:38:50

On my packet of White toilet roll from the co-op, it was called "bathroom tissue" or something similarly WTF?

On another note, YABU as really who cares what you wipe your bum with as long as it's soft enough not to scratch, and absorbent enough not to need half a roll each time. I can't buy the patterned paper however; it just seems far too pretty to wipe shit!

BlackholesAndRevelations Wed 10-Apr-13 18:40:56

My DM has toilet roll to match each bathroom! Pink in en suite, White in main bathroom, peach (yes I know) in downstairs loo!

FruOla Wed 10-Apr-13 19:03:31

How.Very.Dare.You Bowlersarm - I hope you noticed that, waaaay upthread, I mentioned loo roll? grin

DP has bought blue loo roll angry. Normally I get annoyed at the amount he uses but this week I am encouraging him to use far more than is necessary. I will not have my bathroom sullied with colouref lavatory paper!
