Have you ever seen Diana Dors (the actress I have in mind)? She was supposedly the British Marilyn Monroe when she was young, but as she got older she started playing matriarchs and lady crime bosses.

Laundry blue *smacks self on forehead* I should have thought of something like that - though truthfully, I've never heard of laundry blue. I suppose it's the same idea as bleach - though I've given up bleach and use hydrogen peroxide because it's a little gentler on the eco system. But this stuff is obviously wrecking havoc. huh

They don't seem to make it any more -- I don't know what's in modern powders/liquids. Before synthetic blue they used ground lapis lazuli, so only the very rich could afford it.

When I was young we used regularly to drive past a disused blue factory. It was in the middle of a forest, built from green slate, and it was totally bright, bright blue! It used to fascinate me. (Apparently, it's now a hotel). I don't know how much damage the blue itself did, but it was made from some pretty noxious stuff.
