I know a thing or two about mess. As the Editor-in-Chief of RecipeGeek.com, and the mom to 2 small (but decidedly messy) kids, you can imagine that my days revolve around life in the kitchen. Whether I am developing and testing recipes for my website, making and cleaning up after our daily meals or scrubbing my kitchen clean after a Sunday afternoon chocolate chip cookie baking session with my kids, I clean up A LOT!
My husband, Simon, can attest to the fact that I am a huge fan of paper towels and I use them for well, just about everything. Spilled milk? Yogurt and berries splattered all over the kitchen floor? Bowl of mac n’ cheese dumped onto the booster chair (or your other child’s head)? A roll of paper towels are always within my reach and I would go so far as to say that they are my BFF in the kitchen.
Being such a big fan of them, you can appreciate why I am super picky when it comes to choosing a brand that I really like. I will not go near the budget brands (which I find thin, un-absorbent and easy to fall apart) and I prefer a towel that is thick, strong, resilient, and that can hold up to whatever I - or more importantly my kids - throw at it.
Lucky for me I was recently introduced to Viva® Vantage* Choose-A-Sheet* Towels with V-Flex* Weave, brand new in Canada. Although initially skeptical at the thought of veering away from my favourite brand, I was instantly impressed with Viva Vantage towels. I decided to put them to the test. A day in the life of me: 2 kids, 3 meals, 2 recipes to develop and a kitchen to keep clean and tidy before, during and after.
Throughout the day we had many opportunities to see what these paper towels were really made of. At snack time my son, Ellis, spilled his dark ruby-coloured berry smoothie ALL over the counter. All it took was 3 sheets and a few quick wipes and it was like the spill had never even happened! I was beginning to see that with Viva Vantage towels you get this amazing flexibility and absorbency unlike most other paper towels I have ever used.
After naptime, the kids and I decided to burn off some steam by playing a game of tug of war using the towels. Not only did we have a ton of fun, but Viva's insane ability to stretch shone through. The revolutionary V-Flex Weave allows the towels to flex and conform to take on ANY MESS and their super flexible nature allow them to get into all of those nooks and crannies in your kitchen, without breaking up.
In fact, Viva Vantage towels have the perfect combination of strength, stretch and softness to tackle your everyday messes. And, with their unique texture, these towels stretch to give incredible strength and durability. With Choose-A-Sheet, you can choose the right size towel for the job every time so they can take on ANY mess, big or small. As a mom who is trying to teach my kids environmentally-friendly practices and ways to reduce waste, this was something I really liked and could appreciate.
But ultimately for me, the most exciting part of these paper towels is that amazing ability to STRETCH! Mom’s everywhere know the value of stretch. We live in our lulu’s, buy our kids stretchy clothes and search for the stretch-iest diapers we can find (I mean really, who wants a leaky diaper?). Viva paper towels really do provide that stretch that we moms are always drawn to and the best part about that? It makes clean-up a cinch.
My conclusion after a day of cooking, eating, cleaning and fun? I was hooked. Viva Vantage towels really lived up to the hype and have now become my new BFF in the kitchen!
All moms know the value of using the right tools to get the job done right (the first time). So why not try them on your next mess and see why stretch makes all the difference. Visit http://www.vivatowels.ca/Coupons.aspx to download a coupon for $1 off.
