No, it’s not a big, fat, soft toilet paper rocket for the next mission to Mars.
Many bloggers I follow get sent all sorts of amazing and expensive gadgets and gizmos to review. Well, whoop-de-doo for them. For when they see this post they will have the smug smirks wiped from their faces – yes, with this Ora kitchen towel. Did you see what I did there?
Look, it ain’t going to change the world, but a nice PR chap called Nick begged me to give them a whirl, and as we get through about 8 rolls of recycled towels in our house every week, I thought, ‘Well, it’s free, so why not.’
And do you know what? I’m glad I did.
The accompanying press release fluff claims the new towels ‘turn round a century of design, saving time, money (and the planet)’ because the towels are stacked, not on a roll, and are round, and not square. And apparently there are the equivalent of two rolls of ‘ordinary kitchen towel’ on an Ora.
Not exactly curing cancer or ending world poverty here, I grant you, but I will testify to its absorbent ability to soak up some spilled milk which, after all, as we know, is not worth crying over.
Anyway, this is a review, not a sponsored post, because Nick seemed like a very nice chap and Ora seems like a very nice towel. As towels go.
Available, should you be inclined, at Tesco, price £1.89.
