Can you guess what this is?


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.



Spilt milk: No point crying over it




Available, should you be inclined, at Tesco, price £1.89.

    What happens if a running child knocks the stack over???? It looks like you might end up with round kitchen towels all over the floor?

      Good point and well made. After which I decided to drop the stack from a great height – and it stayed beautifully intact. Even the most determined and speediest running child wouldn’t damage it.

  2. What a bizarre idea. Wonder how, and why they came up with that? Seems as though it will take up a lot of room on a work surface, something that I couldn’t accommodate in my tiny kitchen.

      Actually it takes up less room because it is roughly the same width & just slightly taller than a traditional kitchen towel roll but holds the equivalent of two normal kitchen towel rolls in one Ora stack! So I don’t need to replace it as frequently nor do I need to find somewhere to store the second roll!
