Being a blogger working from home, it’s super easy to get cut off from the rest of the world.
So last week when I was invited to a “7-Day Switch Up” party for Viva® Vantage® with a bunch of local Washington, DC area bloggers, I couldn’t wait to socialize with people that didn’t require a keyboard–gasp!
I had never used Viva® Brand, but was curious whether they could help make clean-up during DIY projects easier because of their scrubbing power and stretchy strength when wet or dry (thanks to the V-Flex™ weave).
After all, it’s not a true do-it-yourself project unless hands are covered in paint…there’s paint on the floor…and you’ve got at least one stubborn “tattoo” of paint on your forearm that someone randomly points out two days later.
Viva® wanted to challenge us to see how these towels would hold up for us during the week. But first, they needed to “school” us on all the features.
To start the party off, they had some yummy treats for us!
But of course, we had to wash our own dishes using the paper towels (yes, you can wash dishes with these towels!) to experience how well they held up when wet.
(…Sneaky devils… LOL).
And because of their sponge-like absorbency, it was easy to wipe down the counters with the Viva® Towels, too.
We also got to decorate wine glasses for a little friendly competition for a prize!
But first, we had to wash and dry our wine glasses see how the Viva® Towels were lint-free and left the glasses super shiny, ready for markers!
And do you want to guess whose wine glass was chosen for the fabulous $45 gift card to the most famous coffee house???
Uh huh…..MINE! 🙂
It was a great event, and I got to meet some bloggers that I know I’ll be connecting with again soon!
We each got sent home with a bag of Viva® Vantage® so that we could take the 7-Day Switch Up.
Let the switch-up begin!
Well, This Is Interesting…
During the week, I found a ton of useful ways that Viva® Towels came in handy, like cleaning paint off of my hands… Scrubbing caulk off my caulk gun…
But none were quite so nasty as this: some neighborhood strays that “live” next door took two giant poos in my paint spray tent I had left up in the yard overnight this week for my crown molding. OMG….!
I sprayed vinegar and water and thank goodness my Viva® Towels didn’t fall apart during clean up! GROSS!
And I hate cleaning windows. It’s one of those tasks I just never do unless I’m taking a picture of it for my blog. HA!
But this weekend, I wanted to see just how well the Viva® Towels would work on my filthy windows.
I couldn’t believe how lint-free they were!!! I just used regular window spray foam.
I also used them for an old chair that I was painting for my family room.
Now THIS is seriously gross!!
But because of the scrubbing power of the towels, I was able to get a lot of the grime off easily!
It’s been 7 days and I’m almost out of Viva® Vantage® and I need to stock up!
Life’s messes have definitely been easier to clean up! And now I’m going to challenge YOU to take the 7-Day Switch Up, too!
How to Take the 7-Day Switch Up
