What Colour is Your Toilet Paper?

Colored toilet paper at Monoprix in Paris, France
While in Paris, France (one of the "Fashion Capitals" of the world), we went shopping at a store called Monoprix. We were staying in a little apartment, and we had to buy our own supplies. We were looking for toilet paper and much to my surprise, it came in many colours! I saw black, fuchsia and pink toilet paper. And it wasn't cheap. 5.81 Euro for 6 rolls! It's a well-known fact that Paris is expensive, and this is just one example of how extravagant Parisians can be.  Seeing that Paris is the most visited city in the world, I am sure that there are people that buy toilet paper at these prices.

Check out this website on Colored Toilet Paper and Tissue to see what other colours are available.  If you have a colour-scheme in your bathroom, you can decorate it up with a splash of your favourite colour.

I actually ended up buying 6 rolls of light pink toilet paper at a middle-of-the road price. We just had to try it.  It was just as effective as the plain old white - go figure!  Even the toilet paper has to be in high fashion in Paris!

Have a great day!
