I bought some toilet paper the other day with out realizing it was 'scented'

Now my bathrooms smell like some kind of disgusting Calvin Klein cologne. I think CKBM. BM as in Bowel Movement.

Be careful out there folks. It is a slippery slope from 'buying scented toilet paper' to 'sniffing the toilet paper after you wipe'

Stay safe.

Fragrance is added to so many products. Fragrances are poison, plain and simple. And they are insidious; laundry soap, dish soap, shampoo, air "fresheners," shaving creams, TP and tissues, and on and on...

It's possible to find these products without fragrance. I have to. I cannot have any fragrance products in my house. Makes motels and rental cars a bitch.

Beyond fragrances it's unreal what's in the products we use. I developed a really nasty skin reaction and finally traced it down to two anti-fungal preservatives in Seventh Generation laundry detergent: benzisothiazolanine and methisothiazolanine. I mean nasty as in a week in hospital.

I know the op is just for fun, but I can't pass on the chance for a good rant on the subject of the bs we are subjected to in daily use products.

Take a walk down the "soap" aisle in a grocery store. It's almost impossible to breath.


Just happened to have one handy.

The best value? Depends, but most probably it is your life, so not using any of these?

Personally I prefer unscented 80 grit sandpaper but hey, I used to live in the woods.

Closet thing to scented toilet paper was a pine cone.



Yes KSolem I agree with you. That sh!t is poison. No pun intended.

Totally, completely agree. I buy everything unscented except perfumes and some soaps. Protection AND being able to choose my own scent.

When the (American) scented tampon made its way over here, the entire gynecological establishment went "Yikes!" and it flopped, thankfully.

I am no longer sure of what "Bring your pad and let's go bouldering" means, or what V stands for in the boulder problem ratings.

The V obviously stands for 'Vagina'

It's a sliding scale

Glad I missed that one. Wonder if I'll eventually have to make the choice about scented or unscented Depends. I guess it depends on if I live that long.

I buy everything unscented

Not me, I'm all about my totally natural elderflower based mangina lotion - "Queen For The Day".

This isn't scented, doesn't even wipe very well, but I do thoroughly enjoy using it.
