Where did all the colored toilet paper go?

Jul 16, 2009

RIP Pink Toilet Paper, Cherished Friend, Companion, and Always There When You Needed It Most; 1950-?

RIP Pink Toilet Paper, Cherished Friend, Companion, and Always There When You Needed It Most; 1950-?

Think about it for a second – When was the last time you reached for some TP and saw anything but the standard white roll?  Probably around the same time tie dyed t-shirts and Birkenstocks were still in style, right?

30 years ago colored toilet paper wasn’t the rarity it is today.  Introduced in the 50’s and popular throughout the 70’s, many manufacturers produced a variety of colors including pink, blue, yellow, lilac, tan, and black.  Homeowners loved matching the color of their toilet paper to the color of their bathrooms (it was the 70’s after all!).  So besides the obvious reason that what was hip in the 70’s isn’t anymore, where did all the colored TP go?

According to the King of Toilet Paper, two major events occurred which  hurt sales and thus led to the downfall of the colored toilet paper reign:
-    Doctors started warning colored toilet paper could lead to skin irritation.  As pretty as we once thought it looked, no one wants to deal with that!
-    Ecologists also began warning the dye in the colored toilet paper rolls was harmful to the environment.

With an increased cost of production (it costs more to produce colored than white toilet paper) and a decrease in sales, manufacturers began to produce less and less.  Up until 5 years ago, Scott was one of the last remaining manufactures to still produce our old friend in beige, blue, and pink.  However, they have since cut production all together.

RIP Colored Toilet Paper – From the bottoms of our bottoms, we thank you for the service you have provided us over the years.  We’ll miss you.

    Er, well actually, Scott does still, in 2009, seem to make colored toilet paper in their sandpaper 1000-sheet roll versions — but for some odd reason they are only marketed for the Hispanic market. They are marked “Suave Colores” and are available in pink and blue and maybe beige. They come in 1-roll and four-roll packs. I was shocked to see them in a local grocery store the other day and bought a roll of pink for 89-cents (10-2009). Who knows, I may start a trend! I forgot how rare these things have become.

  4. stew - December 24th, 2009 at 10:21 pm

    Gee, i scored some from an old estate, kept it stored for 10yrs now, Wow, i can’t believe the the talk on toilet tissue. Do you think it would sell on E-Bay.??

  5. used aquariums - December 26th, 2009 at 5:32 pm

    That’s a very interesting observation. However, I will point out that there are still colorful details or pictures on TP still, along with other paper towels.

  6. Spector - December 29th, 2009 at 10:36 pm

    In a move which should be universally condemned, Scott has discontinued its colored toilet paper products as of December 2009.

    They were the last major producer of colored toilet paper in the United States.

    No more.

  7. claire - January 8th, 2010 at 10:08 am

    just last week, scott in colors appeared at my wegman’s–99 cent per roll. i was very excited–no beige yet but all other colors…green was lovely for the holidays

  8. claire - January 8th, 2010 at 3:39 pm

    me again–commenting on Spectors observations–i went back to Wegmans and lo and belold the colored toilet paper says “Suaves colores” on the wrapper–they have it in pink, blue and green. Does this mean they haven’t discontuned it or is this just one last case of the stuff??

  9. Spector - January 9th, 2010 at 6:50 pm

    On their last cases. Stock up while you can — and even better, call Scott and complain about them discontinuing the colored versions. Frankly, if it wasn’t for the colors and the nostalgia factor, I wouldn’t be buying that lousy TP. Scott should be trying harder to retain me as a customer. Keep the colors!

  10. Randy Face - January 18th, 2010 at 10:25 am

    I do not trust that colored tissue paper, it seems that it has bad effect to our skin.

    I don’t think I like the idea of colored toilet paper. Its just not an area that I think it is necessary to have color….

  14. Rick - May 5th, 2010 at 9:09 am

    Wow! I didn’t think there could possibly be this many people interested in this subject as I am. I had been able to get the green Scott’s TP at my local Stop and Shop up until last week. I had been buying it 3 rolls at a time and it went with our vanity top almost exactly as far as the color was concerned. I suspect the main reason they would stop producing it would be cost verses demand. Probably not a whole lot of us buying it. But, the rather small inventory S&S had in stock seemed to sell pretty well. Oh well, it will be missed but plain old white works as well. Just not as pretty.

  15. Claire - May 5th, 2010 at 11:40 am

    OMG–we must be related–i bought up most of the colored paper my Wegman’s had. But now that i know that’s it–who do I consider colored toilet paper worthy??

  17. Concerned Mommy! - May 12th, 2010 at 11:36 am

    My son has just started potty training and colors are his thing. I can make potty training fun and exciting just by giving him the choice of which color t.p. to use, and that makes him successful! WE STILL NEED COLORED T.P. just market it for toddlers! The t.p. companies will be revolutionized!

  18. cheap travel - June 25th, 2010 at 8:07 am

    innovation that is less appropriate. should suffice with white toilet paper

  19. Concerned Mommy! - June 25th, 2010 at 12:57 pm

    Of course we can “suffice” with white toilet paper, obviously we do. But I just think it would be fun for potty training.

  20. Rick - June 25th, 2010 at 1:10 pm

    Haven’t seen it in S&S for quite some time now. Just the white stuff. B.O.R.I.N.G. I suppose if there is some health reason to not use it then it should remain obsolete until some paper company can figure out how to make it safely. The green went so well with your bathroom decor though…….

  21. Molly - July 12th, 2010 at 11:42 am

    Maybe there are other ways to liven up your bathroom? Funny signs or toilet paper holders perhaps?

  22. new homes in sandpoint - July 26th, 2010 at 6:12 am

    Excellent! First of all, i learned that colored toilet papers were already made back in 1950s. Second, i can’t imagine how a black toilet paper looks like.

  23. Molly - July 26th, 2010 at 7:23 am

    Black toilet paper, perhaps for halloween?

  24. Ginny - July 30th, 2010 at 3:56 pm

    If you miss the colorfull toilet paper, you can buy some tissue pulls that are covered and some of them have designs too. Just puzzled with it, what will be the difference since you will be using the same toilet paper to wipe the a** that has the same s***? Will it be different if you will be using the colored than the plain white? Just asking anyway. ;-)

  25. Molly - August 2nd, 2010 at 6:03 am

    Good idea, and good point Ginny!

  26. Suz - August 5th, 2010 at 6:46 pm

  27. Karen - August 7th, 2010 at 12:51 pm

  30. new homes for sale in north idaho - August 10th, 2010 at 6:02 pm

    Yeah. I didn’t noticed that colored toilet paper is out of the market already. Before I used to see a lot of it with different colors but now I only see white toilet paper.

  31. Donna - August 13th, 2010 at 6:46 pm

    I don’t use colored toilet paper, but I do have a blue and also a yellow toilet that I am jerking out of my bathrooms–American Standard. Does anyone like THOSE any more?

  32. Molly - August 16th, 2010 at 5:27 am

    Colored toilets remind me of my grandmother’s house. I think she had a pink toilet!

  33. LiveHigh - September 14th, 2010 at 6:37 am

    You can find some colour in Europe. RENOVA makes fun toilet paper and they don’t come in boring ‘soft’ pink or blue or beige. Have a look at: http://shop.renovaonline.net/mall/departmentpage.cfm/Renova/_238932/1/6%2520Roll%2520Pack

    No more boring toilets!!! Your bum wouldn’t notice but your visitors will! ;)

  34. LoveColors! - September 14th, 2010 at 11:38 am

    What’s next: a return to all white underwear too? Yech! I HATE white. It is ugly and boring and makes me depressed.

    Shame on you Scott! Besides manufacturing toilet paper in pretty pink and other colors, Scott is among the few brands whose product does not shred apart and leave lint behind (on one’s behind!) I’ll buy Scott’s white product but I will be annoyed with this company’s stupid decision everytime I use it. Start making the shredding, linty variety Scott, and I will abandon toilet paper altogether and use kleenex instead, as another poster suggested.

    On a parallel, albeit OT, note, it’s been a long time since I’ve seen colored kleenex tissue.

  35. Molly - September 16th, 2010 at 5:20 am

    Yes, we featured Renova’s black toilet paper on the blog earlier this year! See http://blog.toiletpaperworld.com/noveltyblack-toilet-paper/

  36. Lea Manalo - September 23rd, 2010 at 8:49 pm

    There are only few colored tissue paper that is available in the market. Maybe many prefer to use a white tissue paper because it has fewer chemicals.

  37. Chris Young - September 25th, 2010 at 1:08 pm

    Hey, how about all those who, like me, have discovered that Scott’s has discontinued colored TP complain to their website?

    And those who believe that colored TP is in some way bad, well, just don’t use it!

  38. Claire@men's blog - October 6th, 2010 at 8:03 am

    Colored or not the functionality for toilet papers should remain the same. We’d rather be environment friendly and cost effective than vain.

  39. Molly - October 8th, 2010 at 6:35 am

    That’s a good point Claire!

  40. Ingrid Lawson - November 11th, 2010 at 2:20 pm

    I just bought very vivid Teal Blue and Lime Green colored toilet paper from the UK, online as http://shop.renovaonline.net. If you have PayPal they will convert the currency price. It is pricey, so I only put it out for holidays and when guests are expected. The colors come in (Teal)Blue, (Lime) Green, True Orange, (Hot) Fuchsia, Black, and Red, in 6-roll and 2-roll packs. I simply love the vivacious colors, and can’t wait to show them off for the upcoming holidays.

  41. lily - December 2nd, 2010 at 8:55 pm

    Colored Toilet Paper wasn’t introduced in the 50′s, it was around in the 30′s. I just saw an old ad for Zee’s Toilet Tissue… white, orchid or green in a famil circle printed in 1937! It’s so funny that I forgot about colored toilet paper. It may have been bad for women but it brings back memories of running ahead of my Mother at the Market so I could search for the color I wanted. I always liked yellow and mint green

  42. Skin Care Reviews - December 7th, 2010 at 11:41 am

    I used some colored paper few days ago and I compared both of the colored and plain white, but theres nothing difference but just the color anyway. Both of them are usable but lets just say that new colored toilet paper is more colorful than the white.

  43. Travel Potty Chair - December 8th, 2010 at 9:05 am

    I would be concerned too of getting skin irritation from colored toilet paper. It might look cool but I rather not have irriation where the sun doesn’t shine!

  44. Molly - December 10th, 2010 at 6:46 am

    That’s true. Comfort over style!

  45. Mia - December 17th, 2010 at 7:28 am

  46. Deb - December 23rd, 2010 at 7:28 pm

    Jeez, I grew up with colored t.p. Never had a rash, irritation or anything… don’t know of anyone who did. I miss the colors. Still. After all these years. Life is so short, why not have something that makes you happy? Anyone know where I can find it on the Internet or in Maryland? My kids would be psyched to see it (just like they are about black and white movies, I guess!).

  47. carolyn hoyt - January 7th, 2011 at 10:27 am

    It has annoyed me for years that the paper with colors & lovely designs disappeared from the world. It is really stupid when you think of the major pollutants that are allowed to continue destroying the world/big profits no ban and as for skin problems don’t use it if you have a problem/have yet to hear of one person attacked by killer TP.

    I know it is all going the same place, same use but why does everything have to be stupid white bland crap.

    I’m also sure that there was some sort of “health hazard” also associated with the use of colored toilet paper. It seems everything these days is bad for our health. Although, you would think they would have colored TP for potty training purposes. I would that it would be a hit with the kids.

  54. Rugged Depot - March 30th, 2011 at 11:29 am

    My daughter would love these colored toilet papers! We finished remodeling our home last month. She asked for her room to have every shade of purple imaginable. I guess a purple toilet paper in her bathroom would be the icing on the cake! ;)

  55. Therapist Beverly Hills - April 4th, 2011 at 1:20 pm

    I would love to have colored toilet papers in my house. However, would it be dangerous to sensitive skin since the toilet paper is colored (I’m guessing due to color dye)?

    Thanks for all the helpful hints at sprucing up our bathroom now that we cannot get the same colered toilet paper as our counter top is in the bathroom. (no kidding the green Scott’s paper was exactly the same color) But, it is already pretty well gussied up. The colored TP just added another little touch. We never had any problems with our septic system while using the colored stuff though. But, if the chemicals used to make it colored are harmful, it had to go. Back to the boring old white stuff these days. But, I still have one last roll of the Scott’s green TP! Yup! Might put it up on Ebay..heh, heh, heh.

  60. Jenna - June 8th, 2011 at 8:52 am

    I’m pretty glad colored tissue paper are almost extinct these days. My grandmother used to like these colored, scented and embossed tissue papers that feel really quite unhygienic to use. I always like white, unscented ones.

  61. fishponds guy - June 25th, 2011 at 12:31 pm

    I live in Slovakia and here we have no problem buying coloured toilet paper. Actually we were buying one blue one for a couple of years until we found one superstore with plenty of other TP that are more eco-friendly and cheaper (interestingly they’re white).

  62. new communities in coeur d'alene - July 30th, 2011 at 8:10 am

    In the UK we can get white, cream,peach toilet paper but i want the vibrant colours like we used to have in Kleenex boutique facial tissues. Now that was a great 2 colour team. The ones from Renova are expensive. I am sure someone could come up wiyh a cheaper version. I know there are also more intense colours available in Europe, like France and Switzerland as I bring some home each time I have visited that country.

    It is so irritating that such nonsense destroyed the market for colored paper. The world is polluted every second of the day around the world with stuff a lot more dangerous than TP dye and HELLO if it irritates your bottom then obviously don’t use it. Why is everyone forced to use the boring white TP. For the life of me I cannot remember a sudden mass outbreak of skin irritation. I can still find colored Kleenex and am wondering how long that will survive.

  69. Kenneth Kasalis - December 13th, 2011 at 1:07 am

    I heard the colored paper was going out….terrible decision…so I had my local Longs Drugs order boxes for me. They are stacked in the garage….pink, blue. beige, and green….all nice, soft Scott tissue…more than a thousand rolls.
    I blame the enviro nuts…what a miserable bunch.

  70. Molly - December 13th, 2011 at 6:36 am

    Hi Molly,
    Well they are in the cardboard Scott shipping boxes.
    My panty does have a top shelf full of pink, blue, almond, and green toilet tissue and the matching tissue boxes /Kleenex/ in the same colors.

    I also remember in the 60′s there was avocado, hot pink, gold and deep blue…with matching tissues.

    White is so blah…

    My prize possession is a kitchen paper towel roll in yellow! In the original Zee brand wrapper. Kitchen towles used to come in pink, light blue, pale green also. Mom had them in NY in the early 60′s.

    I lived in Ukraine for a while and there they had scented / colored TP! I LOVED it even though it was kind of scratchy. As I remember: the light green toilet paper was green apple scented, the pink was a floral scent, the light blue was another floral scent, and the peach was peach-fruit scented. I bought the green every time. Oh man, I’d love to be able to buy that again! (The scent was so nice!)

    It is made by a brand called “Roota.” (In English it looks like it’s spelled Pyma.) They sell it online:

    It was in 1987 here in Canada actually . I was on my honeymoon during the first two weeks of October when the announcement was made by Health Canada that the dyes used in coloured toilet paper were linked to rectal cancer. The product was pulled from the shelf by November. I clearly remember the day; in fact, I remember exactly where we were and how completely disgusted I was by the whole thing. That should answer your question.

    And, by the way, the colour was only on one side of the roll in the pattern. In order to see the pattern, you had to pull the paper over the TOP of the roll, so that should be the end of that discussion, too. The paper should roll from the TOP!

    Thanks Marian Greelring for giving these details. I used color toilet paper when I was young and I really adored it. As mentioned in one of the comments, the colored ones where scented too. But all of a sudden, the supply stopped and we were very disappointed.

    I have been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found
    any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me.
    In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did,
    the web will be much more useful than ever before.

    A very interesting article. I haven’t used much of colored toilet paper. Somehow my parents did not encourage us to use them, since they were worried about the colors used. But once I saw them at a friends place and even flicked some of them:)

    My mom remembers colored toilet paper in lilac sold at Macy’s in NYC. I heard it Scott colored paper was going out, so my grocery ordered me 12 boxes 2 years age….yes about 1,200 rolls of pink, blue, beige, and green in the garage. Now I have hoarded facial tissue from Kleenex in the same colors as I fear that product’s days are limited…just got 40 more boxes today…up to 100! Now 64 and have used it for over 60 years…not a health problem in sight. Who would have thought we’d has less choices in 2014 than 1954? My bathrooms look super.
