Review: Kleenex Anti Viral Tissue and Kleenex Tissues with Lotion

Winter is at full swing here in Carolina. We saw sunshine today after five days, it feels so good to see the sun in this chilling weather. The winter not only forces us to stay inside but also brings with him. my worst nightmare, The Flu. This is the time when flu shows its effects. I don't want to fall sick at this time of the year because we have lot of get together at this time. And, I don't want to spread flu to my family and friends. I am sure, everybody hates to get sick especially during holidays. I make sure I wash my hands several times but still sometimes when you take precautions, you still can catch the flu. So, I keep stock of my tissues at home because you never know, when and who in your house going to need it. 
At this time the Kleenex Brand Anti-Viral Tissues and Kleenex Tissues with lotion which arrived for sampling seems blessing to me. 

I received two boxes of Kleenex Tissue i.e Kleenex Brand Anti-Viral Tissues and Kleenex Tissues with lotion.

1. Kleenex Brand Anti-Viral Tissue

It has 68 3-PLY tissues 8.2 x 8.2 In. The active ingredients are citric acid- 7.51% and sodium lauryl sulfate-2.02% and Inert ingredients-90.47% . It has Anti-Viral function.

I like using Kleenex Tissue because this is a tissue developed for a whole family. I use it for myself as well as my child. It is really easy to use and dispose. It is good to use during cold and flu, as I can use the number of tissues that I need and just throw the used one away in trash, so that decreases the chances of spread of infection as compare to using handkerchief or cloth.

What makes Kleenex Anti-Viral Tissue different from other tissues?

It has three soft layers, including a moisture activated middle layer that kills 99.9% of cold and flu viruses in the tissue within 15 minutes. 
When I took out one Kleenex Anti-Viral Tissue from the box, I could see and separate the three layers. See it to believe it in the picture below.

I am going to stock up these tissues more for my family.

2. Kleenex Brand Tissue with Lotion

Everyone who gets flu or cold or allergies knows the pain of runny nose and wiping it repeatedly. I am no exception, I have done that million times and It becomes hurtful for your nose if you use handkerchief or tissue that isn't soft. The Kleenex brand tissue with lotion comes with mild and soothing ingredients like Cocos Nucifera (coconut) oil and Aloe Barbadensis Leaf extract. 

One Kleenex box with lotion comes with 75 2-PLY white tissues.

The Kleenex Tissues with lotion are perfect for delicate care for sniffles and sneezes. These tissues are so soft and absorbing that I love using them to wipe my face and wipe makeup. I love them.

Kleenex Brand is all about sharing the care. Thats why they are offering an exclusive coupon. Go here to print and save on any two (2) boxes (50 count or larger) of Kleenex lotion or Anti-Viral Tissues.

Deck The Stalls Holiday Party With Cottonelle #CottonelleHoliday

This is the best time of the year. I really enjoy this time of year because this is the time when I decorate my house, prepare new recipes and host parties for my friends and family. I do get lot busy this time but everything is well worth when you get to see your loved ones. The holidays decoration is at full swing at my home as well as all around my neighborhood. I started my putting up my Christmas tree with new ornaments and a new theme. But I always feel that when I decorate my house for holidays, the one area of my house which gets neglected is the Bathroom. In many ways. its an important part of our house and more people will be using it in my home during this time of year.
So, I decided to put my D.I.Y horns on and do something for my bathroom decor. And,this is the end result.

There is no rocket science in it. Its very easy and simple D.I.Y that anyone can make with the items that we use daily in our homes.
I used the material from the party kit that I have received from cottonelle along with other items that I already had at home.

  1. Cottonelle Fresh care Flushable cleansing cloths dispenser-3
  2. Glitter pens in different colors like green, red, silver and gold
  3. Christmas craft assortment- 1 packet
  4. Colored markers
  5. Colored paper
  6. Glitter ribbon
  7. A pair of scissors
  8. Glue Stick

I made a sketch of hanging ornament and wrote a message " You help to make the season Bright!" at its bottom on a piece of thick paper and then colored it and cut it in shape with the help of scissors. Then, I pasted it on the dispenser with the glue. Make sure you don't paste it on the opening of dispenser. Paste it little down.

I then pasted the the Christmas crafts around it. I tied a glitter ribbon at the top that I had at home. And its done. I made a banner of the colored paper and pasted it around the flush and above it. This is how it looked.

I decorated second cottonelle dispenser with a Christmas tree that I sketched and colored on a thick paper and then pasted it. On the top, I made a paper frill and pasted in two circles (First above the second) for a fuller look. Before pasting the frills, make sure the dispenser is opening easily.

For Third cottonelle dispenser, I used a mickey mouse ears shape thick paper and wrote the message " All is Calm, All is Bright (with you)" . Decorated it with glitter pens and Christmas crafts. Then, I cut it and pasted it on the dispenser. For the top, I used a Christmas wrapping paper that I had at home. I made a frill of it and pasted at the top.

This is how the finished product will look. Isn't it easy and simple?

I used these decorated cottonelle dispensers in my bathroom for thanksgiving party at my house. And I tell you, My guests were really impressed with these decorated dispensers. They too were telling me that they realized that they are neglecting their bathroom decor and would consider decorating it now. 

Are you planning to decorate your bathroom this holiday season? When do you start decorating your home for holidays? Let me know in comments If you try this craft.

Review: Zep Commercial Cleaning products

I love my house neat and clean. Whenever I get some leisure time from chasing my toddler, I love to clean the bathroom and kitchen. But few things that I don't like about cleaning is that it is time consuming and you have to use separate products for cleaning different surfaces like carpet cleaner, kitchen counter cleaner, disinfectants, antibacterial wipes etc. Do you feel like this too? When you have so many cleaning products in your house that you sometimes use wrong product for cleaning a surface. It happened with me few times. :):)
Recently, I got an opportunity to try Zep commercial Cleaning products and I jumped in because I love cleaning. This is my first time trying Zep commercial products and I was so excited to try them. 
I got a mixed lot of samples consisting of Zep commercial All-Around Oxy Cleaner & Degreaser and Zep commercial Quick Clean Disinfectant.

As I do, before using any cleaning product, I read the instructions carefully because if its not carefully handled then it may lead to serious consequences. I know, you intelligent people already know this but still a friendly reminder that please read the instructions carefully because no chemicals should be handled improperly or carelessly.

1. Zep Commercial All-Around Oxy Cleaner & Degreaser

Zep commercial All around Oxy Cleaner & Degreaser is a multipurpose cleaner that is good for daily cleaning in kitchen, bathroom and other surfaces. Its comes with dual action power i.e Oxy action which can tackle tough stains and degreasing action breaks up the grime. 
I did two tests with it, one in kitchen and other in bathroom.

Test in kitchen: 

I put it to test in my kitchen counter. There was some tea that got spilled and sticking on the counter. I sprayed the Zep commercial All around oxy cleaner and degreaser over the stain, waited for 1 minute and wiped it with paper towel, followed by rinsing with water and kitchen towel. See the Before and after pics for the results. 
I liked that it is easy to use, wipes out the tea stain nicely and doesn't have the strong odor unlike bleach or other cleaning products. You will feel the smell when you spray the Zep commercial cleaner but it goes away after a while and doesn't stay there for longer period. 

Test in Bathroom:

Then, I put it to test in bathroom sink. There was a red color spot and little grime in the bathroom sink. I sprayed the Zep commercial cleaner, waited for 1 minute, followed by wiping and rinsing with water. See the before and after pics for results. The sink was looking more neat and clean after using Zep commercial cleaner.
  • For use on countertops, granite, laminate, formica, porcelain, ceramic, engineered stone, stainless steel, appliances, most types of carpet, upholstery, kitchen and household surfaces.
  • For hard surface, Spray over the stain, wait for 1 minute, then wipe and rinse throughly with water. 
  • For Soft surface, always test first in a small area to verify color fastness. Soak up excess liquid or residue from stain. Spray product generously and let stand for 3-5 minutes. On deep pile carpets,work All Around oxy into the carpet pile with a clean rag. Allow to dry and then vaccum area.
  • Use gloves

  • Not for use on leather, silk, suede, sensitive stone surfaces, marble or any surfaces harmed by water.
  • Do not mix with bleach or other household products.

2. Zep Commercial Quick Clean Disinfectant:

The second sample was of Zep commercial Quick clean Disinfectant which cleans, disinfects, deodorizes, cut through tough grime and kills cold & flu viruses. When flu season is almost here, disinfecting the house is always my priority. We all like to keep our family and little ones safe from those disease causing viruses, don't we?? This comes really handy because this serves multiple purposes, it cleans as well as disinfects. 

I sprayed it over the bathroom sink after cleaning it with Zep commercial oxy cleaner & degreaser. I didn't use it for cleaning purpose, I used it more like a disinfectant. It is convenient to use. I sprayed it over the sink and then wiped it with a towel. My bathroom sink looked really clean after using it. See the before and after pics. 

  • Do not use on unpainted wood.
  • This product must not be used to clean eating utensils, glassware and dishes.
  • When using on food contact surfaces like counter tops, stove tops, thoroughly rinse all treated surfaces with tap water.
  • Use gloves
P.S: Read the user instructions on the bottle before using for safety and protection.

All in all, it was wonderful experience, using the Zep commercial cleaning products. I will be definitely buy the full size bottle of there.

Summer ready with Cottonelle

I am member of Cottonelle Clean Crew on Crowdtap and I have received free Cottonelle products to sample and share. However, all opinions are honest and my own.  #CottonelleCleanCrew #LetsTalkBums

Summer is at full swing right now and that means beach vacations and road trips. I love going on long road trips as it is much cheaper than going through flight :) and I love stopping at different places while on our destination. I don't want to miss all that fun by taking a flight and reaching quickly to the destination in case I am travelling out of the country then I want the shortest duration of flight possible.
So, I am going on a short beach vacation via road in coming weeks and when you travel via road then you have to take bathroom breaks on the journey. I hate using public restrooms but you know when you got to go then you have to go. And it is almost impossible too avoid public restrooms. The reason are numerous, they are not clean, sometimes the flush don't work and one time I have used a restroom which didn't have the toilet paper in it, not even a single sheet!! Can you imagine, sitting on toilet seat and looking helplessly around for a toilet paper? I cant forget that day in my life, I cant tell you how I managed to clean my tush but never mind I learnt my lesson hard way.

Now, whenever I go on trips or vacations, I stock myself all ready with essentials, so that I don't face any embarrassing situation. Along with the clothing, shoes and beauty kit,I make sure to put a packet of Cottonelle Clean care Toilet paper in my bag. You never know, when you will found a restroom without an toilet paper. 

I like to use my Cottonelle Toilet paper in case I need to go on the way to my destination. So, I kept the pack of 4 rolls of Cottonelle Clean Care Toilet paper. It is strong and has extra absorbent ripples. 

Another important thing is the Cottonelle Fresh Care Flushable cleansing cloths Dispenser I use them at home and really I cant go without them! Seriously they are the best thing made ever. Just use of 1 or 2 cloth will clean and freshen you. The best part is these are flushable and alcohol free. Great for entire family.  I start my day with them, so, cant leave home without them. This is the picture of it in my bathroom. 

I keep the Cottonelle Fresh Care Flushable cloths Portable Soft pack in my purse to use when I am in hurry and don't want to open my bag. They are flushable and septic safe too. They come in handy when I just want to run to washroom and leave it feeling clean and fresh. 

So, these are my summer essentials without which I wont think of leaving my home.

Review: Viva® Vantage Paper Towel

Hi Friends,

Here I am with the review of a latest and innovative Paper Towel. This paper towel is really innovative and unique. I can confidently say that you will never go back to your old paper towel band. As you know I am a member of Crowdtap Community and I got an opportunity to try new Viva® Vantage for free.

I received four rolls of Viva® Vantage Paper Towels. One for me and to share three with my friends and family. I must say the packaging of rolls look fresh and new.

I placed Viva® Vantage in my kitchen, Look how beautiful this paper towel looks:

I liked the fact that Viva® Vantage fits perfectly in my Paper Towel holder.

I have been very loyal to the paper towel which I was using since two years, I never thought I need a change or should I give try to a new brand until now. Let me tell you that I was using a top brand of paper towels and I was satisfied with it. So, I decided to put Viva® Vantage on test with my current paper towel brand. I was straining the tea from pot to my cup and some of it spilled on the kitchen counter. I took piece of my current paper towel and piece of Viva® Vantage and wiped the spilled it. The results were outstanding. The Viva® Vantage completely absorbed the tea and still had the capacity to wipe more whereas my current brand of paper towel was completely soaked and does not had the capacity to wipe anymore fluid. I also like the fact that Viva® Vantage has stretch in them unlike my current paper towel.
I am very happy and satisfied with Viva® Vantage. Now, I am going to breakup with my old paper towel brand and going to use Viva® Vantage now onwards.


  • Great Scrubbing power
  • Amazing stretch
  • Sponge like absorbency which helps soaking spills
I shared the three other rolls with my husband, my neighbour and my best friend respectively. They have given it a try and they are loving it too. I suggest trying it, I am sure you will like it too.

Try it and let me know what you think about it in comments.
