and Kleenex to match. I remember pink, blue and yellow. May have been a green too. The trend started in the 50s and I believe stopped in the 70s. I think they used to do paper towels too in solid colors.
I can imagine the dyes used were not good for delicate areas. I think that and environmental concerns are why they disappeared.

Ah, yes! I once wrote a standup comedy routine about all that crazy matching and customization, but nowadays few people would have any idea what we're talking about. There was also a beige/tan color for the Kleenex, because that was what my parents preferred. The trend was still going strong in the early '80s.
And don't forget the scented roll inserts for your TP...

I remember the colored TP and bought it to match my room. I think they had lavender too. Also, they had some prints. I think Kleenex came in blue at one time.

There used to be more variety in many items.
I recall being at a High School Prom and a girl had Vogue pastel cigarettes in a slim box . They matched her dress. They were accepted then.
I never wanted to smoke, but they were pretty. Clever marketing for a terrible product.

My cocker spaniel would get her mouth under the TP role and eat away. She ate so much of my light green toilet paper the night before a procedure that the vet remarked on the color and the amount. I quit buying it for fear the dye would harm her. But the white is dyed too I'm sure.

Yes I do but we d idn't have it Mom had white all the time but my Aunt had the best bathroom ever, loved going in there. She even had the towels to match. She sold Avon and the bathroom always smelled so nice. We even had white sheets, when I started working still living at home, I got striped sheets & pillowcases. I thought I was a big deal.

Must have been more $$$,'cause we only had white for our large family.
