Many years ago I started this blog to share deals, reviews and my own two-cents regarding all things household, lifestyle, parenting, and products. Countless times since, I’ve shared product reviews along with tips and tricks on how to get the biggest bang for the buck.
After all, it’s not about being cheap, but being smart and knowing value. Value isn’t strictly about money, of course. I’ve always thought that products that save you time, and, potentially, a little bit of sanity, are worthy of being thrown into your cart.
For instance, when I first became a homeowner, I purchased the cheapest no-name paper towels I could find. Why not spend the littlest possible? It was through this first (and last) test that I discovered that being cheap is so completely different than being frugal.
In this case the paper towel was thin and flimsy, meaning that I went through a whole roll when cleaning up just one mess. I guess got my money’s worth, but that isn’t saying much.
Fast forward to today and I’m a Canadian mom blogger with a diverse food and recipes section, as well as a stay at home mom of three girls. I spend a lot of time in my kitchen cooking, baking, preparing meals and packing lunches.
So, when I was recently challenged to do a kitchen clean-up with Royale® Tiger Towel™, it was game on.
I was curious to test the claim that they’d allow me to clean a lot with a little. So, one morning, I grabbed just 3 sections and some household cleaner, and tackled the fingerprints and smudges left on the fridge. As I walked back toward the sink, I noticed more on the handle of the microwave, so I gave that a wipe as well.
I thought about the appliance handles and how often they needed to be wiped, and realized I hadn’t cleaned by cupboard knobs in a while. A long while. So, while I was at it, I wiped down those ones as well. All 28 of them.
I rinsed out the towels and re-used the same 3 pieces to wipe down the entire kitchen counters. Bye, toast crumbs from breakfast and whatever that was hiding behind the coffee maker! That’s when I noticed the jam splattered on the backsplash. Of course, right? I rinsed the toast crumbs and the mystery substance from the paper towel and squeezed out as much water as I could. Jam be-gone.
Since the paper towel stayed intact so well during all that wiping, I rinsed it out thoroughly with some soap and left it by the sink for a later use. Experience has taught me that new messes crop up constantly.
As I was about to leave the kitchen, I remembered that I had intended to make crock pot ribs for dinner that night. So, I got the unthawed ribs out of the fridge, along with my slow cooker from the cupboard. After cutting the rack of ribs into sections on a cutting board and placing them in the crock pot, I put all the dishes into the dishwasher. Using an antibacterial spray and the same 3 towel sections – my counters were again cleaned from dinner prep.
Just 3Royale® Tiger Towel™ sections and all my kitchen clean-up was done, including the extra task of tackling the knobs. Thinking back to my cheapo days with other brands, I think the same clean-up would have polished off half a roll. Ouch!
