Stylish, eco-friendly bathrooms with Toilettree Bamboo Bath Mat - review

Creating a luxurious, spa like bathroom at home can be within your grasp. The key to an elegant, yet simple bathroom is choosing the right products that create a relaxing environment. The use of bamboo in the bathroom is an elegant way to create a spa like feel to any home. The eco-friendly material offers simplicity in design and durability for home use. The Toilettree Bamboo Bath Mat can transform a home bathroom into the zen, spa like feel.


The Toilettree Bamboo Bath Mat offers simple, modern style in an eco-friendly material. Made from 100% natural bamboo, the thickness and solid feel of the bamboo bath mat convey the quality of the materials used. Whether used in a master bath or as a statement piece in a shared bathroom, this bamboo bath mat is as functional as stylish.

In our home, the Toilettree Bamboo Bath Mat is used in the hallway, shared bathroom. With multiple children taking nightly showers, the cotton bath mats would get damp and dirty quickly. Even after just one shower, the traditional bath mat would take hours to dry. If I picked it up in the morning, the cotton mat could still be damp. Since we've replaced the old mat with the new Toilettree Bamboo Mat we don't have a damp issue. Without having to continually wash a bath mat, I have less laundry. The Toilettree Bamboo Mat gives more free time in a stylish package.

The Toilettree Bamboo Bath Mat is rectangular in shape. It is 25.3 in. L x 15.7 in. W x 1.3 in. H.  The bamboo bath mat can be purchased on-line for approximately $39.99.

    Grab it and don't get burned, Super Flex 100% Silicone Oven Mitts, review

    Whether cooking a roast in the oven or manning the smoker, a hot pan can do a lot of damage. Unless you are immune to high heat, a plain, kitchen towel doesn't offer much protection from the heated surface.Old fashion fabric oven mitts lack protection as well. Luckily the Super Flex Silicon Oven Mitts come to the rescue.

    The Super Flex 100% Silicone Oven Mitts offer the following features:

    ttc-silicone-mitts-parts-explained
    1. Protect your hands from hot things for extended periods while in the kitchen, at the grill, or at the oven – all the way up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
    2. Long enough to protect your wrists, not just your hands.
    3. Deluxe quilted comfort liner that your hands will love - the best on the market!
    4. Easy to clean and long lasting 100% FDA grade silicone all around – just wash in the kitchen sink.
    5. Grip easily and securely with our very flexible O-Y pattern, so you don’t accidentally drop burning food on yourself or someone you love.
    6. Lift and move large pieces of hot food with ease, avoiding the use of awkward utensils.

    For anyone who cooks, kitchen gadgets and tools are useless if they don't work or the user doesn't like them. Having tried various types of silicone mitts, I was curious to see if these mitts would work well for me. The biggest problem that I have with some mitts are the size. Not having mammoth hands, the mitts would slip out of my grip. With these Silicone Mitts from the Triumphant Chef, the size was comfortable and not overwhelming.

    The biggest advantage to these mitts is the grip. The O-Y pattern works well to grab sheet pans, grill gates and heavy pots. The texture helps with a strong grip even when there is moisture on the surface.

    Another great advantage to these mitts is the ability to easily clean them.  Since cooking inevitably leads to messes, these silicone mitts can be washed in the sink with the other dishes.  In a few minutes, the mitts are ready to be used again and again.

    The Super Flex 100% Silicone Oven Mitts by Triumphant Chef are available on Amazon.com. They retail for approximately $21. Best order soon for Thanksgiving.

    Sip into relaxation with Uncorked Ventures - review








    Relaxing with on the couch with a glass of wine is a delightful way to spend a quiet Friday evening. The most pressing question on my plate is which wine to enjoy. Without the burden of pairing a wine with an elaborate meal, the options for my generous pour are greater. From a light citrus infused white wine to a bold, robust red, my mood dictates the bottle.

    Recently I was introduced to Vinroc, a red table wine sent to me by Uncorked Ventures. While I was slightly dubious of opening an unknown, unlabeled bottle of red wine,  I was pleasantly surprised by the jammy quality of this wine and its easy drinkability.

    According to the tasting notes, the Vinroc table wine offers layers of dark fruit, mochas, spices and licorice. As the wine develops in the glass, the floral notes become more pronounced.

    For me, I noticed mostly fruity notes to this wine. The jammy quality added to the lightness of the wine. The wine was easy to drink on its own. If I would pair this wine with food, I would see it served with soft cheeses, a spicy meat dish or even a hearty fish. Most importantly, the wine was as pleasant as it was when it was first opened.

    Uncorked Ventures offers a variety of wines from the Napa region. Depending on personal preference, the wine club offers several options. Each month members can explore new wines within the region. From bold, full bodied cabernets to oak filled chardonnay, the fun is trying them all.
