$100 VISA Gift Card Giveaway !!!

A few weeks ago, Procter & Gamble reached out to my little blog.  They asked me to participate in the program, Have You Tried This Yet? which is designed to help us simplify and cut through the clutter of everyday life. I have never done something like this on my blog before, so I was a bit hesitant.  Being a solid user of P&G products however, I knew I would be writing about a brand and product I already used and relied upon heavily.  
Before I could begin this adventure, I had to pick a product.  As a mother of six messy children, who spends most of her free time in the kitchen making her own messes, there was one obvious choice:  BountyÆ paper towels.  BountyÆ paper towels cleans the mess with less because one sheet traps and locks the mess.
It is shocking to me how quickly the eight of us rip through a roll.  You would think my life is nothing but one messy disaster after another.  Ok … I guess it really is.  Maybe this is what that whole “Joy of Motherhood” deal is really all about.  Someone should have warned me.
There is nothing like joy of wiping the remnants of your baby’s first birthday cake off her face while quietly weeping that your baby is no longer a baby.
How about trying to remove all evidence of her big sisters’ waterproof mascara before she comes home and blows a gasket because her baby sister was in her make-up … again!
Maybe your paper towel messes don’t come wrapped in as cute of a package as mine, but I know you love the convenience of having that roll of BountyÆ paper towels sitting on your counter just as much as I do.  
If you’ve never gone for the gold when it comes to paper towels, head on over to www.pgtryit.com and print a coupon for BountyÆ.  I mean, if you are going to buy them anyway, and I know you will, you might as well save a bit of moolah along the way.
And on the subject of moolah, I am giving away a $100 Visa Gift Card to one of my readers!!! I mean, I know the most expensive time of the year is just a few weeks away, but I don’t want to force this free money on anyone.

    Pretty gross, but I use Bounty paper towels for cleaning up those hairballs my cats like to leave for me in the middle of the hallway in the morning :/

  2. tiffany says

    I have a big family, too, so we use LOTS of Bounty paper towels. I like the select-a-size because if it’s a little mess, I can just use one, but if it’s a big mess….!

  3. Delores says

    With a family of 6, we just have peper towels sitting on the counter for every reason that comes up in the kitchen to help us out!

  4. says

    My son, daughter-in-law, grandson (16 months old) and their 80 pound dog recently moved in with us as they are relocating here from another state. They join our 4 rescue cats and my daughter’s 2 cats we are fostering until she finds a place in TN. Need I say more?! We are a home filled with love and Bounty messes!!!

  5. says

    I love Bounty paper towels! I use them for everything – wiping up messes from the kitchen counter, off of the floor, and for cleaning mirrors. And when my baby starts eating “real” food, I will certainly use them to wipe off her grubby hands and face.

  6. says

    I am baking a lot lately and I need something to clean with after I have usually made a mess (according to my husband).
    Then he is trying to redo our bathroom and guess who made a mess in there.

  7. says

    I have lots of cleaning cloths around, but there are always messes that are too messy or gross to deal with with a cloth. Like the other day when hubby knocked a jar of peaches out of the fridge. The jar shattered, and I used paper towels to clean up peaches and glass.

  8. Amy says

    Anyone else have a coffee pot that dribbles when you pour a cup of coffee? Yep – I use my first Bounty select-a-size towel every morning before 7:00 to wipe the drips from my counter!

  9. Linda S. says

    I love these towels ! It seems I’m always spilling something or wiping up messes and the size portions are awesome.

  10. says

    Oh my goodness! I use Bounty paper towels exclusively for EVERYTHING related to cleaning up after myself – especially in the kitchen. I’m SUCH a messy cook! LOL

  11. says

    We go to Costco for the max package of bounty paper towels every few weeks!
    Muddy doggy paw prints, cleaning our salt water tank to bathroom cleaning. I have even used them as to soothe major migraine pain (wet the paper towel, roll it up and press it flat, freeze it and it forms to your head nicely)!

  12. says

    I have a teenage boy who thinks that his shirt is a better tool for wiping but since buying and using Bounty we are getting better!
    Thank you for the opportunity(;

  13. Steph says

    Well, with 3 children I go through a LOT of paper towels. I especially like to use paper towels when cleaning windows, which I absolutely HATE to do! Happy Holidays!

  14. says

    I’m a mixed-media artist and go through rolls of Bounty paper towels on a daily basis.

    I always keep Bounty wet paper towels nearby to clean up paint and glue messes.

  15. says

    Bounty paper towels have come to my rescue a number of times..from cleaning up spilled orange juice to magic marker drawings on the walls. to catching a line of ants marching on the floor because someone had dropped a chip and stepped on it and didn’t pick it up. I love Bounty paper towels.

  16. Alexis Radcliff says

    I clean EVERYTHING with Bounty paper towels…life’s messes are a little more tolerable with a roll of paper towels by your side :)

  17. says

    Mom to a very creative 2½ year old and new mommy to a 4 month old.. with a sad lonely dog who has been showing signs of needing attention by leaving ‘presents’ around the house at night while everyone sleeps. While I wake up dreaming of poop! So bounty to the rescue!

  18. says

    I use Bounty paper towels ALL the time…I am a paper towel freak…when I eat I have one in my lap and at least one in my hand and several others ready to be used to wipe my hands and mouth. I also have to clean up the floor when my dog Halo has an accident and they soak the mess up so quickly and completely!!!

  19. Katie Orosz says

    I work in a 4 person office…..3 of them are men…needless to say, they leave lots of messes to be cleaned up!

  20. says

    I’ll be ready with Bounty for the messes our new daughter will be making! Waiting for her for 13 months now and she should be home from Africa next month! :)

  21. Angela Cooper says

    The question should really be “what do you NOT use Bounty paper towels for?” !! :) I love the extra soft ones for everything: as napkins, for cleaning windows, wiping up my kids’ messes, literally everything!

  22. says

    Well, my kids have a tendency to shake the OJ container anywhere but over the kitchen sink, so that’s probably what I would use them for the most. I’m awful though – I use paper towels all the time and shouldn’t. But they’re so easy to grab for little messes (or big ones!).

  23. Stephanie Rine says

    Bounty is the ONLY paper towel for our family. You can be certain to always find a roll in the bathroom, kitchen and in the car! The uses are endless! Can’t imagine life without them!

  24. says

    The select-a-size Bounty are my absolute favorites!!!! I go through rolls like crazy!!! It’s the best for after lunch clean up or when I fry taco shells and need to drain them :-)

  25. Anonymous says

    I use Bounty paper towels for cleaning up all kinds of messes that my 9 and 4 year old make. And that’s not even counting the messes that our 2 dogs make! Yikes! We love Bounty!

  26. says

    I use bounty for EVERYTHING! From cleaning my kitchen To my bathrooms. To using them as a moist towelettes for when I make homemade corn tortillas and need to keep the flour humid. To using them as emergency baby wipes, to sponging ink on my crafts. I use them to clean my make up off at night to drying my face, since it’s so sensitive, I have to dry it with a clean towel every night. I can list many uses for my Bounty, but mostly I’m grateful for them and the fact they are extremely affordable.

  27. says

    Bounty in my house is a snot rag, sponge, napkin, window wiper, mop, feather duster, spill soaker-uppper, sticky finger cleaner, cover for food in the microwave, hand towel…and the list goes on and on!!

  28. Laura Hogan says

    I like using bounty for cleaning the bathroom, I keep a roll in the car for accidental spills, and wheen I don’t really need a plate for food, like a sandwich

  29. says

    I use 4 rolls a week. I use them for everything! My grandkids are a tad bit messy so my paper towels have a permanent spot on my Bar/island in my kitchen. I have also accidentally washed them in my washer and low and behold they came out in one piece so I reused them!

  30. says

    Oh my goodness! I think I would actually die without Bounty paper towels!! As a mom to a 2.75 year old and a 9 month old, life is one big mess after another!

  31. Grace Elizabeth says

    I use Bounty paper towels to clean the hair out of the drains of the tub and the sinks because apparently it is invisible to the kids and only I can see the mess!!!!

  32. Leeah Mc says

    I use Bounty Paper Towels daily. From cleaning up small spills to buffing my leather shoes. The “select a size” is perfect for me :)

  33. Lori says

    4 month old not quite housebroken lab/boxer puppy who has a Doberman brother and a boxer sister….need I say more??? A case of Bounty would be a God send!!!

  34. says

    I have two boys, one is 4 then other 2 1/2, need I say more?! Lol. They get into everything and we clean up multiple messes all day. Bounty paper towels would keep us going throughout the day.

  35. says

    I have four kids and a cat and a dog, as well as some other little critters. I’ve always been a Bounty girl. They are so awesome. I pick up a lot of messes with them, not only from the kids’ spills and whatnot, but the when the critters get too much wildlife-there’s a mess.
    Bounty to my rescue!

  36. Delores (Nisly) Kauffman says

    One thing that I use paper towels for is when I skin Chicken it hleps to have a paper towel in hand because you have a much better grip!

  37. says

    I love Bounty paper towels! We have 2 kids and 2 cats so I am always cleaning up after someone. I love how strong they are. they work great for scrubbing dishes and pots and pans.

  38. says

    Bounty Paper Towels are THE best. We buy them at Costco in the humongo package with the humongo rolls. They are strong enough that you can rinse and reuse them for certain jobs. They have multiple uses in the kitchen from drying to cleaning messes to being the gathering place for my prep-work. I lay one out and all my discarded things go onto it and I just wrap n toss it in the garbage. Or I lay one in the sink to collect peels because it’s strong when wet and I can just wrap it and toss it. They are the disposable towel for cleaning the windows, the car, the hot tub and too many other things to list. They make great napkins and are a great help cleaning up messes the dog makes.I also use the for nesting certain dishes to prevent scratching or chipping. I think there is nothing they are not good for. Bounty Paper Towels are great.

  39. says

    We use them all the time to clean up after our dear bulldog, who likes to overlook the fact that he is house broken and instead assumes we like to stumble upon his ” gifts” at 5:30 in the morning

  40. says

    I have Bounty paper towels on every level of our home. Upstairs for bathroom/mirror duty, main floor for everything kitchen, and in the basement for sewing uses and quick clean-ups!

  41. says

    As a single girl I don’t have any adorable children to clean up after, but I use my Bounty paper towels to clean my makeup brushes. They’re so durable and I don’t have to worry about ruining a towel. I just throw the paper towel away when I’m done!

  42. says

    We use bounty to clean everything, counter, toilet, meat, ourselves.. It’s really absorbent. Thanks for the review and giveaway.

    I use Bounty for substitutes for a plate for the little ones, when I cut up an orange or apple.. saves on dirtying up a dish, I just toss when done, so I can spend more play time with the family

    I love baking with my kids. They are 3 and 5. Of course, we have fun and make a mess in the kitchen all the time! I use and need Bounty more than anyone can imagine. :)

    I keep a roll under ever sink in the house. Kids are in charge of keeping the bathrooms tidy so it’s handy to have the supplies right there for them!

  46. says

    Bounty paper towels keep my kitchen messes under control. And as a bonus they are great for the mirrors in every room, window cleaning and so much more.

    I love using Bounty paper towels in place of my rag to dry dishes, clean spills and stains on my white kitchen floor. Works great!!
