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.

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.

There is some godawful new scent that they are using in some porta potties these days. Not the fruity-smelling blue stuff.. something else like perfume or that crap they marinate the dog poop bags with. You can smell this 50 feet away from the port potty. Occasionally I smell the same scent on a person, so I think it's some flavor of perfume they are imitating... so noxious.

as to scents... terrible stuff...

good sense, would be:
no scents...


i don't buy those things... however, i borrowed a trash bag from
a neighbor, and i soon kept SMELLING something awful around here...

could not figure??? what on earth it was...


well, you may have suddenly guessed-- it WAS THE PERFUMED trash bag, :O

Thats funny about to portapotty scent imitating a perfume. Smell association with the poo is never good. Years of waiting tables and cleaning goilets at the end of the night with bleach? Now bleach just smells like poo.

Walleye, thanks dude. Unfortunately most of these pics are somewhat old. Haven't done much climbing lately. Most recent was Half Dome and that was four years off the couch for me. Last thing I climbed was this

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

Or just go into ANY supermarket in Central or South America. Half of even the smallest stores are soaps and cleaning products with overwhelming scents. The other half is candy, chips, and rotting vegetables.

Jim, your TP reminds me of some awesome Sani-Can graffiti I once encountered:

Kalimon, you're correct! One of my proudest accomplishments. It started with a small flag that you could barely see. Chad Jukes then got the owners of the two liquor stores to pitch in and buy us a 5x8. Once that was too tattered I was able to raise funds from locals to buy us an 8x12. We used to fix/replace them on the 4th of July every year. We would also grill brats, drink beer, do the rope swing we built up there and throw fire crackers at each other. Great place to watch the Ouray water fights.

Kalimon, are you Greg? Used to rope solo all the time in the park when I was working there, winter 2009-10?

I don't need no TP. The few recent times I've tried to wipe, no residue and no smell at all. Well, perhaps a bit of a rainbow smell, but nothing more than that. I don't think that that's emanating from the TP itself (the package says "fragrance free"), so I'm guess that whatever comes out of me is just naturally lightweight rainbows.

It's really convenient on walls!

Climb the Tombstone in August we said. It'll be fun, we said. Bring super hoppy warm beer and not cold PBRs we said. We duped ourselves. Damn near had heat exhaustion. By the time the sun left the wall we were too beat to fix the next pitch. We did manage to guzzle some beers and take some bong hits though. Also witnessed the downward flight of a mud falcon. Flew about four hundred feet before cratering into the ground.
