Thank you to Viva® Vantage® for sponsoring this post and challenging me to take the 7-Day Switch Up and getting out of my kitchen routine rut. I didn’t even realize what a rut I had been in until I had the chance to spend the day with Viva® Brand and get a ton of new kitchen switch ideas. I couldn’t wait to share the fun of the party with you, tell you about the switch ups, and challenge you to take the “7-Day Switch Up” challenge for yourself.
They had me at brushetta bar. When your talking about the kitchen and paper towels, it’s bound to include lots of food. And we all got a chance to help. Plus we learned possibly my favorite kitchen switch up. To prevent your cutting board from shifting while you are slicing and dicing, slip a damp paper towel underneath it. The paper towel helps the cutting board to stick to the counter and keep everything in place. This has been great around my house with three boys who are always wanting to ‘help’ Mom in the kitchen.
Fancy glasses pretty much only come out for holidays or parties at my house. Which means even though they are technically ‘clean’ they are at least a little dusty. Hand wash, and dry, your glassware using the cloth-like texture of Viva® Vantage® paper towels for a sparkling finish. (And if you’re running a little late doing party prep, you can easily chill a glass bottle by wrapping it in a damp paper towel and putting it in the freezer to chill quickly!)
Serving grapes to your guests? Switch a colander for a Viva® towel to rinse off your grapes before you serve them. The stretchy-strength of the towel will keep it intact while you are cleaning your fruit. Of course you can use this kitchen switch for any fruit or veggie that needs to be rinsed. This is great for my kids who can get, and clean, fruits for themselves.
Did you have a summer garden this year, or grow any fresh herbs? Keep them fresher longer by storing them in a sealed plastic bag with a Viva® towel to soak up excess moisture. It also works great with a head of lettuce.
Another kitchen switch to try? Switch out the need for a vegetable scrubber, and instead use the great scrubbing power of Viva® Vantage® paper towels to properly clean mushrooms, potatoes, and more. It takes scrubbing to a whole new level.
Speaking of scrubbing, Viva® Vantage® paper towels are perfect to get the grime off your stove. You can also tuck a paper towel onto your floor duster and really stretch your scrubbing power. We even made our own cleaning wipes with Viva® Vantage® paper towels.
While learning about all the different ways to switch up my routine, we also made this delicious (and easy!) Feta Dip. Don’t forget to grab the recipe for it.
