Halloween - wanted: red toilet water

I'm hosting a Halloween party. I'm looking for suggestions on how to make the toilet water red all night long. Probably red food coloring will be my source, but I need a delivery device that will have a constant supply for many hours.

    Dan:

    Not to be gross, but do you think all the ladies at your party are going to wonder if it's that time of the month for them :-)? Just kidding, but it would certainly freak me out!

    The first thing that came to mind when I read your post was prision wine. But that won't give you continuous red colored water, it will only give you fermented red water with a sock floating inside your toilet with rotting fruit.

    This is an interesting question,

      I have not found any way to maintain a red flow after flushing but one cool thing that I did was to attach the rubbery red dripping blood (sold everywhere) to the outside rim of the toilet and have some hanging inside as well. Looks really creepy.

    I just thought I'd add....

    you might want to check whatever dye you end up using on the back of your toilet to make sure it won't permanently stain the porcelain. Someone mentioned fabric dye- I know personally that this will leave you with a pink toilet. My sink still hasn't recovered from my last dye project, and a pink toilet is no one's friend.

    How about this?

    1. use a plastic bottle with a flip lid, (not a flip spout)

    2. attach a float to the flip lid

    3. fill bottle with red dye #5

    4.lay bottle near bottom of tank, on brick or something, with bottom of bottle slightly higher than top

    5. when tank is flushed, float should drop opening flip lid, and when tank is refilled float will close flip lid

    6. terrorize unsuspecting party goers

    7. disclaimer: not responsible for accidents, fainting spells or unsuspecting party goers who are pushed over the edge and go on a murderous rampage.

    Please let us what happens

    I like horror and Halloween myself, so yes, I'd be into the red toilet water too!

    You know, does food coloring stain? I wondered if there was a way to connect the food coloring, only by a drop or so to the tube (that's about enough to look scary)? I'll have to look in my bathroom tank to see if there is a way.

    I really like that, what a cool idea!

    Wait, I thought of part of an idea. What about one of those urinal cookies or toilet cookies type thing? Can you color something that would release color inside the bowl rather than iin the tank, like a colored piece of soap or something like that? Or has someone already said that? I'm having a bad day today. Too much going on this week.

      randy has the most workable plan.

      In addition here's what more >>

      Approach a friendly local butcher or slaughterhouse and buy a) a 5Gal bucket of animal blood, & b) 5Gal of animal viscera & guts.
      At home, arrange the blood & parts artistically around the bathroom, something like a scene from CSI-LasVegas, with splatters and all. Leave a tray of blood-stained surgical instruments and a chainsaw laying around suggestively.
      Done cleverly, this effect is sure to have your Halloween guests totally grossed out to the point of barfing uncontrolably. Make sure to remove fuel from the chainsaw in case some drunk gets ideas. This should totally be a hit.

        >>>a 5Gal bucket of animal blood, & b) 5Gal of animal viscera & guts.<<<

        Ahhhh yes, a bio hazard bathroom for the holidays, and the flies are no extra cost ! Combine the smell of rotting intestines, with that of drunkards vomit...man does it get any better ?
        And could clean up be any more fun ?

          Sometimes the appointed bureaucrats of city hall might come around fishing for a bribe.
          Mostly they will be busy with festivities of their own, but just in case these inspectors are out in force busting apple-bobbers and distributors of unwrapped candy for health infractions, their trick-or-treat can be bought off for 1/5 of Johnny.

    To avoid having to worry about permanently dyeing your toilet (like mentioned above) I would mix food coloring and water together in a small to medium sized pan (one that can stand upright and be put in the freezer preferably). You want to make sure that the red dye looks really dark, almost a black color, in the water. Then you are going to freeze the mixture until about 20 minutes till the party when you take it out of the freezer and put the chunk of red ice into the back of the toilet bowl. It's best to do this when the toilet is flushing to avoid overflowing the back of the toilet. Most times the pipes that fill the back of the toilet bowl run warm so this should slowly melt the ice as the toilet is used and give you a constant flow of red water.

    Let me know how it works for you if you give it a try!
