My Messy Patio Table Was No Match for Viva Vantage Paper Towels #VivaTowels #sponsored

Many thanks to Viva Vantage and Walmart for sponsoring today’s story and helping me clean up my messes!

My family and I love spending time out on our back deck. It’s so relaxing to sit back and enjoy nature at its unspoiled finest. It’s why we moved out to the country. One of the draw backs of country living is dirt. Lots of dirt and “gifts” show up on our deck from our cat, the birds we feed, a raccoon that makes a routine visit, even an opossum, who  has an affinity for the grease can on my husband’s grill. 

Somehow, a big portion of this dirt winds up on my patio table. It’s gross, folks! Yes, that is birdie poop and cat hair and mud and I don’t even know what else!

I clean this glass top table at least once a week; more often if my daughters want to do homework here, or if company is coming. And every week, I use a big wad of my regular brand of paper towels. First, cleaning and scrubbing off all that nature gives, and then going back and cleaning off all the lint the paper towels left. It’s a chore I don’t look forward to.

 That’s why I was so excited to learn about the new Viva Vantage paper towelsThey are said to have “great scrubbing power for everyday messes”. After seeing how dirty my patio table was again, I knew it was time for me to break up with my old paper towels and give Viva Vantage a try. I headed to my local Walmart, where I was happy to discover Viva Vantage was on sale at a much lower price than my regular brand. Score one for the family budget!

Armed with my new paper towel scrubbing team, I went outside to face the table too tough to tame.

I felt the Viva Vantage paper towel noticing all its ridges and stretchiness  and thought, I bet I’ll need at least 4 of these to tackle this mess; but for the sake of experimentation, I’m going to try them one at a time to really give them a test. 

I spritzed on my usual glass cleaner and allowed it to set for a minute.

 Then I pulled off just one Viva Vantage paper towel.

And, to my amazement- it was all I needed. Look at how all the ridges and flex-weave  held on to all the cat hair, dirt and grime!

The Viva Vantage held up to my scrubbing (it only got a couple tiny holes) and it had plenty of absorbing power left. If I’d had the time, I could have taken this same paper towel and start wiping down my chair arms.  Instead I chose to stand back and admire my pretty, shiny clean table!

  1. Wow! That is impressive! Love when a product works well and minimizes waste. Going to look for these on my next stop at Walmart.

  2. Wow, these Viva paper towels are pretty strong. I have a glass table like that on my patio too and it is always a big pain to clean. I think I will have to use Viva from now on.

  3. Thanks for the reminder to get mine cleaned as well!

  4. Hi Barb,

    I was blown away by how well one Viva paper towel cleaned up the mess. A real money saver.

  5. Hi Maria,

    Yes, they really are. You'll like how well they clean your glass patio table if you buy them.

  6. Hi Elayne,

    Your'e welcome. Hope you give Viva paper towels a try.

  7. Those worked really well! I need to give them a try on my patio. Actually, I need to use them inside too. We've been cleaning all morning and I'm taking a short break here and then we'll be doing more cleaning and a run to donate to Goodwill.

  8. I could use that right now outside on my deck. Lots of dust and dirt covering my tables from all the wind.

  9. I would love to have a roll of these VIVA on hand as we have low windows that need tackled and cloths leave smudges!

  10. Hi Daisy,

    Sounds like you had a busy Saturday. I'll be using more Viva's today playing catch up on my house work.

  11. Hi Carlee,

    I bet you'll like these new Viva's for messy clean up around the house.

  12. Hi Dana,

    I'm going to clean some windows myself today. Our kitty leaves little nose prints all over them.


I'd love to hear from you!
