Recently, my husband signed up with Kroger family of stores to receive various FREE samples and coupons in exchange for promotional posts done on Facebook, Instagram, on blogs, sharing word of mouth, etc. We have received several items so far and are loving doing this.
This time we received a sample roll of Simple Truth paper towels, Simple Truth Fresh Mint Cleaning Wipes, and Simple Truth Pop Socket along with coupons to share.
The thickness and the texture of the paper towels were really nice. I was not expecting the towels to be as thick as they were. Not only were the paper towels thick and nicely textured, they were very durable and held up nicely through cleaning. The Simple Truth Paper Towels are “made from 100% recycled paper, with a minimum of 60% post-consumer content” (from the Simple Truth Website). These paper towels are also hypoallergenic. That’s awesome for those with sensitivities. They also do not contain dyes or fragrances.
I love the fact that these paper towels are also available in Select-A-Size just like most major paper towel brands.
I put the cleaning wipes up against my normal Lysol® brand cleaning wipes. The Simple Truth wipes cut through the grease way better and didn’t leave a residue. The cleaning wipes are free from Parabens, Sulfates, Triclosan, Phosphates, and Ammonia. They are gluten free (which is awesome for me as I am allergic to wheat products) as well as vegan and non-toxic. The Simple Truth Cleaning Wipes are not tested on animals nor do they contain any animal ingredients. These wipes are also Rainforest Alliance Certified.
The fragrance of the wipes is neither overpowering nor is it artificial. These wipes contain organic peppermint leaf oil. Love that scent!
The only downside is that the Simple Truth Cleaning Wipes do not contain an antibacterial agent unless you count the Citric, Acetic and Malic acids. Citric acid does demonstrate some antimicrobial properties against anaerobic bacteria, especially against cocci, but it is less effective than 2.5% sodium hypochlorite according to laboratory testing. Acetic acid is almost ineffective in disinfecting. Malic acid is minimally effective against Listeria, Salmonella, E. coli. (You can Google the effectiveness of these acids to see for yourself.) So there is that.
The pop socket thing is interesting…. It does not stay on though. I don’t know if there is something on the back of my phone that is messing with the glue or not. Having it on my phone does help when it sticks.
All in all though, these products are great. “Simple Truth® and Simple Truth Organic® are available at more than 2,200 grocery stores in the Kroger Co. Family of Stores” (Taken from their site.). You can click this link to see where to buy.
I hope to bring you more of these reviews of the Simple Truth Products along the way as well as more of the great products the Kroger Family of Stores has to offer.
