I touched on this in my post about our trip away, but it has been eating away at me ever since so I need to know…
Why on earth do people have blue toilet water??
Ok I get that it comes from one of those hang on the side of the bowel things which personally, I don’t really go in for. I mean I am sure they make your toilet smell ‘nice’ after every flush or something like that but I am not really into that air freshener smell. Plus, they always seemed like an expensive way of keeping your loo nice when a squirt of vinegar or a bit of bleach will do the same… tho I guess not smell so sweet. And no my toilet is by no means pristine and could probably use a good clean a lot more often than it gets (egads I just admitted my loo was not ‘fresh’ to the general public!!)
But all that aside.. why do they need to make the water blue?
It is a really electric blue too, well it is when it is fresh. Even over the few days we stayed in the flat the toilet water got progressively less and less blue, when we left on the fourth day it was a kind of washed out pale blue ink colour.
At first I thought maybe it had something to do with ‘hiding’ what goes in the loo? Then I noticed that when you pee in it, it goes a weird grass green colour and worse.. number twos go a really revolting khaki green brown shade! This rather impressed the girls, as did the blue toilet water…. it was all that I could do to stop them putting their hands in to play in it!
Can you imagine puking into blue toilet water? Imagine what colour it would go? Ok yeah way too gross for the majority of my readers I guess, but if you had spewed as much as I did while pregnant (yes every day for 29 weeks with the girls and every day for 42 weeks with Muski) then the aesthetics of where you spew becomes rather important.
By no means do I intend to offend anyone who does have blue toilet water… I am sure it is lovely and that there is a perfectly good reason for it… I just need to know what that is!

ROFLOL… Heck I have no idea.
OMG you typed “bowel” instead of “bowl” ROFL!!! How appropriate!!
i have like a total germ phobia about those over the rim thingies … firstly cause they are germy, germy germ catchers, and secondly it gives me pause about how often the toilet is REALLY cleaned lol You’re not pushing a brush round it every other day with that thing hanging there are ya? Are ya??? LOL
I grew up with blue loo water, and I don’t get it at all. have clear memories of dr enquiring after the colour of my wee and having a laugh about how green it was rather than how yellow lol I think they occasionally still do blue loo water, maybe for a special treat LOL
ROTFL I have the blue ones that sit in the cistern.. no icky side of the bowl ones for me! And to be honest, I have no great reason as to why I use it.. It was a bit of a novelty when I moved out of home cos mum never used them. Now I just prefer the funky blue colour over the clear colour. Although if they came out with “pink loo” I would be all over that!! LOL Imagine the colour combos you could get from that!!!
oh my – pink loo… now that I could understand!
and oops.. what a bugger the spell checker doesn’t check for my Freudian slips! ROFL
Blue loo is good for giving the illusion your toilet is clean when it isn’t ;-)
I don’t use it-enviro reasons an all-but I *have* and that is why! Its the lazy, cleaning phobics way to maintaining that illusion for others :D
