Now, I’m not one of those bloggers who posts tons of gushy pictures of her kids all over the place, but when I went to take photos of this new Ora Kitchen towel for this post at the weekend Darcey wouldn’t get out of the way and lets face it- she was so cute. I don’t know if it’s her gappy teeth or the fact that she loves the towels so much that got me. I simply couldn’t take a picture without her getting in on the action so I decided to just go with the flow. So here it/she is…….
Tesco’s asked if I wanted to review this clever kitchen towel and I have to say it’s pretty fab. Apart from the fact that it looks great on your kitchen worktop – a bit of a conversation started actually – and it has it’s own stand, but it’s the fact that you can grab the next sheet with one hand really, really, easily – as Laguna (a Monster High Barbie type doll for those not in the know!) and Darcey show you below. The first thing you have to do is get your doll to “stand on the rocket first” Yes- even in high heels!
Then with one hand you can simply lift it off. See, childs play. Now, I know what you’re thinking. “Why do I need a kitchen roll that can be picked up with just one hand?” Well I’ll tell you. You don’t realise how handy they are till they are in the kitchen and you get used to them. Once you try and go back to the old fashioned ‘hold and tear’ method you really get it. The reason I know this so soon after receiving the sample to test is not because I used up this big stack (which by the way contains the equivalent to two standard kitchen rolls) It’s because very soon after these shots were taken the whole thing disappeared. Guess who’s bedroom I found it in?
Another thing to mention is that the towels are really thick. Much more so than my regular ones. For that reason we have used them to do much tougher jobs like picking up spilt food on the floor with just one rather than 2-4 of our old kitchen towels! Also, they’re round so they look good and make great napkins – especially for the cake we tested the same night (more on that next week)
Ora kitchen towels, £1.89 are available from Tesco stores all over the place.
