my friend marie told me about this ad she saw on tv (may take a moment to load). in it, there is a side by side comparison of a teeny, tiny washcloth and the shiny box of kleenex single use disposable hand towels.
up ahead, more trees will die so you can dry your hands! because as kleenex says, “your hands are only as clean as the towel used to dry them.” all you dirty piggies, exit right…
i love that there is a sound of coughing in the background (ooh, germs!) and that a big drooly dog takes down the tiny washcloth (because that happens all the time…). isn’t the point of washing your hands with this invention called “soap” supposed to kill germs? but wait! you can use the paper towel to wipe off the sink and counter when you’re finished…who are these people? and what are they doing in the bathroom? maybe the beautiful designer dispenser will sway you…
seriously, if you’re so paranoid about the germs being spread by your own family, maybe you could have your own individual hand towels…we let ours dry outside – i’ve never had a funky towel in all my life – i swear, this whole thing makes me so angry. and what is that stupid dispenser made of? plastic? dyed paper? good job, kleenex! and at $2.99 for 60 towels…that is a pretty expensive investment for a family of four.
oh and i almost forgot, their “cottony-soft™ sheets are free of inks, dyes, and fragrances” – no post-consumer, recycled product here folks, – this is about “a clean, fresh towel every time” – trees be damned!
would love to hear your thoughts on this one!
