The Charming Sparrow Review & Giveaway

In the spirit of so many "green" days--Earth Day (April 22nd), Arbor Day (last Friday in April), International Migratory Birds Day (May 3rd), and Bike-to-Work-Day (3rd Friday in May)--I am starting out a series of household green up posts with these ridiculously cute and practical paperless towels from April at The Charming Sparrow.

How It All Shakes Out:
Ease of Use: 5
Quality: 5
Functionality: 5
When All Is Said & Done: 5


Here is a look at the "green mail" that I received recently!


Here are all four of the panels snapped together, ready to go on the roll or be folded up--just like PAPER towels, only way more earth-friendly!

I love that these towels snap together! You can keep your set of 4 snapped together and rolled up in a holder, just like paper towels. They wash up along with any of your regular laundry and can be used over and over again! Not only that, but this print (and many others) are so much prettier than even the cutest prints that Brawny or Viva or any other paper towels offer!


Ease of Use: The snaps are just as easy to use as paper towel perforations--except you don't have to worry about accidentally ripping off just a corner or something! You get a whole towel, every single time! These are durable little towels, they wash up great and can be thrown into the washer with any other household laundry!


Here is the full spread of the sweet flower and bird print.


Quality: The quality of the material is great. You can tell it's not cheap fabric--it's super soft flannel with a reversible matching print. These are great for napkins or clean-up! I had a hard time finally cleaning up a mess with them though, because they are so darn cute! So maybe that's an added bonus? They make you more neat and careful, so you make less mess so you don't have to dirty them! Haha! I just love ours. They make me feel good because each use means 4 less paper towels going into the landfill. Four less paper towels made from trees.

Here is a close-up of what the little snaps look like. They are found on all four corners of the towels, so they snap together easily.



Functionality: These are BETTER than paper towels in function. They NEVER rip because they are wet! They are reusable so you only ever need ONE for a job, no matter how messy. I've cleaned up my baby, his high chair, the table, and counters in one easy and quick wipe job! (Starting with the baby, of course!) I am just kicking my self for not making the switch sooner! It's saving valuable resources and money--plus it makes me feel good! I love making greener choices in our home.

Here is another picture, zoomed out but with good detail of the snaps.

  3. What a neat concept that you can link the towels together and put them on a roll! I wonder if you can attach more than 4 together? That would be great if you could.
