My little sister and I were having one of our typical mammoth chats last week during which I confessed to never having bought a towel. EVER. Crazy if you think of the fact that I left home 20 years! It’s not that I’m living life towel free or I’ve been a conscious towel buying avoider or my current collection is looking old and knackered. Far from it. It’s simply been a case of having a perpetual towel buying mum who’s passed hers on to me and my siblings. The end result of said conversation was that along with my brother and sister, we’ve never had to buy a towel once!
So that was it, I was on a mission, time to be all adult and do some towel shopping research !
But where to start?
When you’ve never had to even blink in the direction of what to look for I was starting from scratch. First to replace our hand me downs, was a bundle of bamboo towels.
It turns out that a Bamboo towel is three times more absorbent than Cotton ones making post bath times with a lively toddler a little easier, plus the perfect material to make towels from. Being super soft, I’ve not noticed anything different from my current cotton ones so it does seem to the way to go, and if you’d like to join me and see for yourself then read on….
The The Towel Shop are offering one lucky reader the chance to win a bundle of bamboo towels consisting of a bath sheet, a bath towel, a hand towel and a face cloth in a colour of your choice simply by entering the giveaway below.
It’s open to UK residents over the age of 18 and there is no cash alternative and winners details will be passed onto The Towel Shop who are providing the prize.
Hands up who’s with me when it comes to the satisfaction of having a nice, clean car. Even with my chaotic, busy life, I try to find time to clear out the mess, give it a quick brush down and polish and remove the constant seagull poo target practice which keeps the pesky birds happy. (I swear they aim for my little car as soon as I’ve cleaned it.)
However, keeping the outside looking respectable isn’t as easy as it sounds, as any attempt of a quick car wash is non-existent as my helpful toddler insists on joining in and I spend most of my time guiding him away from the road and trying to stop him from standing in the bucket. To him it’s the ultimate muddy puddle – fun if you’re Peppa Pig, annoying if you’re a busy mum with a never-ending to-do list.
That last little niggle has been laid to bed recently though after discovering Williams Waterless Wash and Wax Car cleaning kit. I’ve managed to squirt, wipe and buff in a record 20 minutes this week, more than halving by usual sponge and bucket attempt. It really was a simple case of wipe, polish and go. Simples! It makes the whole process of car cleaning much less messier, quicker and stress free and I’m keeping on top of it rather than waiting until I can’t read the number plate. Shine car – happy people. There’s a song in that somewhere, I’m sure.
Fancy seeing for yourself? Lucky for you then, to celebrate the anniversary of the launch of this time-saving car cleaning kit, I’m offering you the chance to win a kit of your own. It’s open to Uk residents over the age 18
(but if you can’t wait for the giveaway to end, it’s currently on sale at £14.99 during the Ideal World #JoinTheIdealParty week)
