SpongeTowels~ A Giveaway Just for Our Canadian Readers

by Jessica Streit

Jessica, 5m4m contributor is here to share with us about SpongeTowels and an amazing contest as well as an ultimate giveaway gift basket. We were compensated to write this review and given a gift basket to give away, however all opinions remain our own.

If your kids are anything like mine (and I’m guessing they are), messes are a part of your life. Just when you think you have the kitchen clean, a little hand leaves a dirty print on the front of the refrigerator. It’s a never ending battle to keep the messes at out of the kitchen.

Harder than keeping those kitchen messes cleaned up are the spills that happen when you are having dinner. Inevitably a glass of milk, juice or worse gets knocked over and you’ve got to think quick to get it cleaned up. Grabbing a paper towel can sometimes cause more harm than good, especially if that paper towel doesn’t clean up the mess well. There’s nothing like carrying a dripping, soggy handful of paper towels across the room as you rush to the garbage can.

SpongeTowels can help alleviate that problem. SpongeTowels have the best combination of absorbency and strength. They feature thousands of super absorbent sponge pockets in each pack. SpongeTowels is the official paper towel of Top Chef Canada.

This maybe not the worst mess Ive ever cleaned up but it was a very frustrating mess. Yesterday, I just gave my son and my niece a capri sun juice and I left the room for a minute. I came back into the living room and the had both emptied their juices right onto the couch because they thought it would be funny. (totally not funny)
