Today I want to take you guys back and revisit three of my “five star” favourite household products.
The first is the Swiffer Sweep and Trap. This is the magical tool that had my kids begging me to let them sweep the floors. I’m a fan of Swiffer in general, and to me this feels like an improvement on the original classic, without overly complicating things — aka no cords, no batteries, no wet things. I love how easy the “trap” section is to remove and empty out. I love how easily it pivots, and how it fits into all the weird corners and edges along my kitchen floor. I honestly can’t imagine going a day without using my Sweep and Trap, and would run out and buy another one immediately if mine suddenly went missing.
The second is Charmin Ultra Strong, or as I like to call it the toilet paper that saved my marriage. I’ve briefly mentioned Charmin in the past, mainly to tout how fantastically useful their Sit or Squat app is (particularly when you suffer from colitis), but I’ve never really gotten into the details of the how and why I love Charmin so much. Cheap toilet paper is the one thing I can never get away with skimping on. I used to buy the grocery store’s in house brand, or whatever was on sale, but I’ve found we go through the cheap stuff so much quicker, due to doubling down, that in the end we’re not really saving much, if anything. That and the fact that my husband threatened to leave me if I kept buying the “crappy stuff” means that Charmin is a staple in our household, and of the Charmin family of products the Ultra Strong is our favourite.
The third product I want to talk about is Pantene Moisture Renewal shampoo and conditioner. If you’ve been following my blog for any length of time you’ll likely recall that I am a big fan of Pantene, and it’s not just because they partnered with me to do a cool cut and donate my hair fundraiser, or because they run one of my favourite charity initiatives, the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program. I’m also simply a genuine fan of their products. The past few years I’ve noticed a big difference in my hair during the cold winter months vs the humid summer months. In the winter my hair feels dry, even at times almost brittle. I’ve found that the magical duo of Pantene’s Moisture Renewal shampoo and conditioner can keep my hair soft and clean, even in the dry, static prone, winter months.
Now these may seem like an unlikely trio to group together, but that thing that links them is that they are all Procter & Gamble products. P&G is the company behind over fifty different household brand names. When I realized just now many of those products are staples in my household, that was the moment when I realized that I am indeed a P&G mom. Another thing that links these products together is the fact that you can visit the PGeveryday.ca website and grab coupons or read product reviews. Which means you don’t just have to take my word for it, you can go and see what other folks have to say about these items as well. Or if there’s a P&G product you want to rant or rave about you can always log in and leave your own “Rate & Review”.
What about you folks? Do you have a favourite P&G product? Have you ever used the reviews section on the PGeveryday.ca website to research a product? or to leave your own opinion?
