Asda Smartprice Kitchen Towel
Disadvantages: too thin
I always like to have some kitchen roll in the house as I use it for quite a few different things and from time to time I do like to vary the type of kitchen roll I buy. I don't usually buy smartprice products as I always think there is a bit of a stigma attached to them in that they are poor quality because they are so cheap but I figured it was kitchen roll that I was buying so I would give it a try.
Asda Smartprice kitchen roll (or kitchen towel as it is called on the packaging) comes in the typically plain packaging which is green and white. In the centre of the packaging there is a picture of a spillage in green. Above this we are told it is from the Asda smartprice range and that the kitchen roll is 100% recycled paper. It is very standard packaging but instantly recogniseable on the shelf. The kitchen roll itself is just plain white, which is one of the reasons I don't really buy it much as I am sad and I like to have little pictures all over mine. On each roll there are 120 sheets and in a pack there are three rolls per pack.
I use kitchen roll for various different things around the house, the main one being for spillages and having a three year old we have quite a lot of those!! I also like to use kitchen roll to clean my windows as I find it much easier to clean using this than a cloth as for some reason they don't end up streaky. Quite often I will use kitchen roll to clean my worktops with an anti-bac spray rather than always using a cloth so I can just throw it away after using. When using this smartprice kitchen roll I have found that it is quite thin and so I have to use more sheets than normal which means the roll is used up much quicker than other brands. The kitchen roll is perforated as all others are so tearing a piece (or three pieces in this case) is simple but quite often it will rip and so looks quite tatty.
Unfortunately this wasn't suitable at all for our uses and when I tried to mop up a cup of spilled milk it took well over half a roll!! It was however useful when my daughter baked buns for her nursery teachers and we wrapped them up in a piece of kitchen roll to protect it from germs.
I wasn't really overly impressed with this kitchen roll, it is too thin and rips too easily when cleaning with it so I ended up giving the rolls to my mum who uses it now when taking her dog out to pick up his business - again taking quite a few sheets at a time! A pack of three smartprice kitchen rolls costs £1.88 but I have to say for an extra 40 pence I would go for a different variety which is a better quality and lasts much longer.
Thank you for reading my review
