Bounty Paper Towels and $100 Giveaway! (Winner Announced)

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy.

When P&G provided us with what seemed like a year’s worth of paper towels, my initial thought was, what the heck am I going to write about paper towels? Not exactly glamorous. I was wrong. Read on to find out how to enter an awesome $100 giveaway! 

Congratulations to our Winner:
#111 Judy B who wrote “I like the Flipstick concept of having color then shine.”
Judy, please watch your email for more information. -Natasha 
I am a home cook, and we actually go through paper towels like crazy; cleaning up spills, grime, explosions in the microwave, I could go on and on but I’d probably lose some of you. I don’t like using regular kitchen towels to clean up a mess because they get gross and harbor all kinds of bacteria that breed their minions (too many science classes? yes, too many re-runs of Despicable Me? Definitely!).

As soon as you wipe up a spill, towels need to be laundered or they start to smell (You know exactly what kind of gross I’m talking about!). Plus, by using paper towels you save the time it takes to wash that towel.

Here’s a paper towel glamor shot. Itís workin’ the kitchen.

Its really a great concept to buy a product that is better versus a cheaper brand. You might feel like you’re saving money, but in the end you really aren’t if it takes 3 cheap paper towels to do the job that one could do better. With Bounty®, one sheet locks in the mess.

I realized this truth awhile back with napkins. I’d always buy those flimsy cheapo napkins, and if my toddler was mess making at the table I’d instinctively reach for at least 5 napkins to contain the spills. It’s the same concept with paper towels. It makes sense. And, anyways, this jumbo pack was only about $15 at WalMart; there’s no typo there!

Also, I have a little boy. He is 3 ’nuff said. A bowl of cereal comes at you fast. The Bounty® paper towels make an ultra-absorbent make-shift bib.

Also, with a high quality paper towel, there are so many things I’ve done besides cleaning!
-Absorb extra grease from fried foods
-Cook bacon in the micro (2 sheets on bottom and 2 sheets on top for 3-4 minutes)
-Keep produce fresh longer by lining fruit and veggie bins with paper towels
-Store fresh herbs by wrapping them with a moist paper towel and putting them in a Ziploc
-Store dry herbs in a dry paper towel; zapping away any moisture

Put a paper towel over microwaved foods to contain splatter
-Strain cottage cheese; this was especially exciting!
-Wipe mushrooms with a lightly damp paper towel so they don’t absorb too much H2O.
-Rinsing grapes or other fruit; Yep it’s strong enough to hold quite a bit under pressure!

-The list continues …

P&G has a new program called Have You Tried This Yet? This program highlights innovative products for yourself, your family and your home. You can cut through the clutter and simplify the process of finding products that will make your life easier!
Visit pgtryit.com to learn how you can stay in the know when it comes to beauty, family and home. Here, you can also learn more about Trend Trio, rate products and watch fun and innovative ìhow-toî video tutorials.

Coupons from P&G:
If it takes a coupon to get you started as well, P&G has a nice coupon on their website. Also, look for P&G’s brandSAVER coupon booklet in your local Sunday newspaper for more than $80 in P&G product savings. It’s one of those coupon books where you’ll find products that you already use; I don’t believe in coupon hoarding and a fat wallet of coupons you’ll toss after they’ve expired — speaking from experience. You can also sign up on their website for samples and valuable coupons to be mailed directly to you.

Have you tried the flipstick?

On a totally unrelated note, I’m loving this new COVERGIRL Blast Flipstick from P&G. Itís a lip color that is creamy on one side and shimmery on the flipside. You can use either color or blend them together (which is what I like best). I guess you could kiss a Bounty paper towel after applying so itís not completely unrelated.

Pardon my randomness. Lipstick is fun.
