Summer is here and I couldn’t be happier. I love the heat, the scent of flowers coming in through open windows with the warm breeze, lazy evenings and the smell of BBQ everywhere as well all enjoy the Canadian BBQ season. This year we’ve been celebrating the warmth by spending a lot of time outdoors, doing a little bit of grilling ourselves, and experimenting with making homemade ice pops, or as my 3 year old calls them, pop-i-skulls.
Of course, many of these activities means we are also generating a whole lot of messes. As a matter of fact, my 18 month old’s current favourite world is “mess”; generally shouted out after she has thrown her dinner over the side of her highchair.
To be honest, I’ve been dealing with these messes with dish towels because our brand of paper towel just can’t handle the messes my girls make. I mean these are serious messes by two little mess makers on a mission.
Thankfully I was recently sent a package of Viva® Vantage* Paper Towels to put to the test, and it’s been a life changing experience to say the least.
I’ve always used the same brand of paper towels that I grew up with, and to be honest I kind of always thought that a paper towel is a paper towel is a paper towel. Nope. Not the case with these at all!
I pretty much immediately put these to the test on the weekend when I decided to make the girls their favourite watermelon kiwi ice pops as a treat. Let’s just say that the girls get their mess making skills legitimately. It was messy. I mean there was sticky juice everywhere by the time I was done and ready to pop them in the freezer!
The Viva® Vantage* Paper Towels feature Choose-A-Sheet* which allows you to choose the right size towel for the job. I chose the smallest size so I could really test the performance. That single, small sheet, which is about half the size of a stand paper towel sheet, was able to clean up the entire mess with ease. What I’m really impressed with though, is that even after soaking up all that watermelon juice, it was still holding strong and could have kept going.
What really sets the Viva® Vantage* Paper Towels apart is the V-Flex Weave* which is what gives these paper towels amazing absorbency. It is also the secret to the strength and incredible stretch that allows them to take on everyday messes in a way that other paper towels just can’t.
The texture of the V-Flex Weave* is so unique too. You can feel how thick and tightly woven these towels are because of it – and they actually have 40% more fibre and less air than leading quilted towels. I was amazed that my husband was really able to stretch the towel without it tearing. Just imagine all that stretch at work as you scrub away at cleaning everything from giant messes to wiping down the kitchen sink!
I really can’t get over how strong these towels are and it is because of the unique stretch of the Viva® Vantage* towels that it is able to flex and conform to get into nooks and crannies with the strength and durability to take on any mess.
After barbecuing some hamburgers and sausages the other day, I grabbed the Viva® Vantage* towels to wipe down my grill a bit before putting it away. I was surprised with how well it was able to take on the scrubbing I put it through to get that grill clean without falling apart. They have great scrubbing power!
It’s really impressive that these are able to keep going through not only major spills but through everyday cleaning too. Suffice to say, my dish towels are back to their primary job of drying dishes once again. For good.
Try Viva® Vantage* Paper Towels on your next mess and see why stretch makes all the difference!
