BARBBF, thanks for the memories. I had forgotten about pretty pastel colored bath tissue. Now I'm wondering why it dissappeared. Perhaps the dye used caused an allergic reaction for some?

When you could buy bath tissue to match the color of your bathroom. I'd buy rolls of blue, pink and white...and then the colors all disappeared. Nothing but white now. Is there something they didn't tell us?
