Bounty DuraTowel

Bounty DuraTowelWhile you’re wiping your countertops with a used dishcloth, you could be spreading around the “ick” trapped within it. After just one day’s use, dishcloths can harbor and redeposit millions of germs on the surfaces you and your family come in contact with throughout the day. That’s why Bounty is proud to introduce DuraTowel, the paper towel that offers the things you love about dishcloths, without the millions of germs for a cleaner way to clean. Since it is designed with more fibers that hold together even when wet, it feels and cleans like a cloth allowing you to tackle your toughest projects.

Now, I know you are all wondering — how does it really work in my house. Well, I have to admit that I am impressed. We have given it a run for its money, and the DuraTowel has yet to disappoint! Will managed to spill an entire glass of an orange drink on my kitchen floor. No problem with that clean up. He then proceed to drop an entire glass of water. DuraTowel passed that test too. I used the DuraTowel to wipe down my fridge with some liquid cleaner. Not only did it clean my fridge, I had no tearing or anything. I even used the DuraTowel to wipe down my stove! At this point, DuraTowel has passed every test so far.

If you are looking for an awesome paper towel, DuraTowel is the one for you!

Wrap-N-Mat

IMG_1650Are you frustrated with your kids brown bagging their lunch and all the waste that is associated with that? There is nothing worse than seeing how many plastic baggies you go through a month when the kids are in school! (Or when you have a husband who takes their lunch every day!) That is where Wrap-N-Mat comes in.

Wrap-N-Mat Products are unique in that they are the original re-usable food wrap and placemat in one. They use a food grade plastic for our products because:

* the lining keeps more AIR OUT than fabric only- ultimately keeping the food fresher
* the lining is food safe, free of lead, phthalates, Bpa and PVC
* the lining is porous free so no food particles can get trapped in the fabric
* the lining wipes down easily after each use without having to be inverted to clean

As a mom, I love them. They are easy enough that both my kids can use them by themselves. I love that they are easy to keep clean. Most of all, they actually have boy designs! You wouldn’t think that would be a big deal, but finding non-girl things is actually a lot harder than you think! My kids also eat on their desks at school for lunch (we don’t have a cafeteria), so this helps keep the germs from their desks off their food!  I love that they come in various sizes, so that you can easily wrap a sandwich or some chips or some fruit!    I also love that they are made here in the US.

If you are trying to make taking your lunch less wasteful, definitely check out Wrap-N-Mat!

Orange Food Kozy® Wrap

U-Konserve & Kids Konserve is the result of two moms who were struggling to be environmentally conscious while facing the never-ending challenge of managing the everyday accumulation of household trash. Each day as their made their kids lunches, they knew that the plastic baggies, drink cartons, and single use containers were heading for the landfill. Did you know that one school age child generates an average of 67 pounds of lunchtime trash per school year?

They wanted a waste free solution. They consulted experts and tested samples. They soured high quality, non toxic material designed to be durable and long lasting.

I recently got the opportunity to review the Orange Food Kozy® Wrap. You can wrap sandwiches, bagels & cream cheese, meat & cheese slices, apple slices or whatever you want to wrap up and take along. Their reusable sandwich wrap is similar to a snack bag, but lies flat to double as an on-the-go placemat, making them great for school lunches. My kids eat on their desks at school, so who knows what germs lie in wait there! This is a great solution for that!

BPA-free and PVC-free, their wraps make perfect refrigerator storage for snacks and leftovers like cut meats, cut vegetables and blocks of cheese. They’re also the ideal waste-free alternative for takeout, picnics and travel.

Unlike a cloth snack bag, this non-toxic surface is easy to clean, dries quickly, keeps food from seeping through, and the slick surface is perfect for messy foods.

As you can see, we have been using ours for snacks and it works great! It does exactly what it is suppose to do. It is super easy to fold up (easy enough for my 5 year old) and easily wipes clean too! If you are looking to “green” your child’s lunch, I highly recommend these!
