Ora Towels – not just kitchen towel

When is kitchen towel not just kitchen towel? 

Well, according to my small son, it;s when it come in a “packet that looks like a rocket” and to my daughter, when she can use it for all sorts of crafts and creativity, and for me, it’s when you have a tough, multi purpose, easy to use, but also environmentally friendly paper towel that gets jobs done…

Ora Kitchen Towel

Ora kitchen towel, a bit different but very clever…

“Easy one hand grab – no tearing, no unravelling, no wastage. Twice the number of sheets than on a conventional kitchen roll.  Clever, economical and too good-looking to hide under the sink.”

The towels are round, which is a little unusual, for a kitchen towel, but they are designed this way because  they fit better in your hand and also because the edges of conventional paper towel often don’t get used. With Orla, more of the towel is used and absorbs spills and mess, which makes it more economical. It also makes it more compact. There is twice a much towel in a pack as there is in normal kitchen roll, and because they are stacked you just grab and use, with no tearing or fiddling with flimsy sheets. They are tough and strong too. I spilled oil on our kitchen counter whilst cooking, and grabbed an Ora towel, to wipe it up and was delighted to see that it did the job, soaked up the oil, and I was able to wipe the surface and no greasy mess was left behind. No soap or cleaning spray required. Impressive!

Basically, you can’t really go wrong. Cost wise they work out well, for your budget too, with more in a pack.

I find it incredibly handy to have in the kitchen for general use, wiping up spills and mess. It is useful for wiping the children’s hands and faces after meals (it would be perfect for toddler mess too) and I even used two pieces of it to dry and wipe down the hamster cage, after we cleaned it out, and was impressed at how absorbent it really is.

Sorry ordinary paper towel but you have been replaced…

I had to stop the children from using it, because they loved it so much, for creating things. My children are much more creative than me, and came up with a list of things they could make out of Ora towels. Angels, snowflakes, rockets, cups to hold things in (with a little creativity and sellotape) and it also proved useful for cleaning up after a painting session. 

I can think of lots of ways Ora towel would be useful, and I am actually taking a stack to work, to use at our toddler groups and in the kitchen. Sticky hands, cleaning up juice spills, mopping up the occasional splash of coffee that I always find and because it isn’t fiddly to use it works well. It would be handy for camping, and anywhere you would normally use paper towels.

  1. I’ve seen these before and they look great. I’m sure there are loads of exciting crafty bits Luke and I could do with them, not to mention the obvious benefit of having them in the kitchen. Ray xx #TriednandTested

  2. we could use them for dipping in paint if they are lovely and strong when we do arts and crafts xx

  3. We have been using these and I really like them especially as they are easy to take off the pile without having to pick a roll etc and they are really extra strong as well. I got them at the MumpreneurUK conference and would highly recommend them. Stopping by from #Triedandtested

  4. Great review! I’m always looking for new things to try out and this looks great! Thanks for sharing, I’m off to check it out! Suz x beauisblue.com

  5. What a clever idea.. I’d use them to line tins with, they’re all round but kitchen towel is square, problem solved!



  6. Sorry realised didnt actually say what I would use them for! I think they would come with us on our numerous caravan trips. With four young children there are always a multitude of spills to be cleaned up!!

  7. I would use them for wiping down my dog, who gets a layer of muddy water on her tum every time she goes for a walk.

  8. My partner is the cook of the house and whilst he produces culinary masterpieces he also produces a trail of destruction behind him. This would be used to mop up the madness of the the kitchen catrastrophe

  9. I would use them at home for cleaning up behind the kids – Im not sure if we would make anything creative, but I did once use some kitchen towel to create a polar bear out of a milk bottle when one of the kids suddenly remembered they had to do it for homework which had to be in the next day!
