Grime Boss Heavy Duty Wipes Review

An E-Mail landed in my inbox recently with the magic words 'Create and Craft' mentioned, which as a creative caught my eye. I know on the surface some of you blog readers may wonder why I took up the opportunity  to review a packet of hand wipes, but bare with me here, as I think the tools and accessories can be just as important as the pretty things some times.

I was kindly send 2 packs of Grime Boss Heavy Duty Hand Wipes to try. As someone currently doing some online learning in the world of branding, looking at the pack and the logo etc. when they arrived, they looked like they meant business.

The wipes are sold in packs of 10, 30 and 60 and are designed to cleanse and moisturise the skin - one side has a rougher texture for cleaning, the other is softer to protect the skin. There's a formula embedded in the wipes which includes Aloe Vera and Vitamin E, and a citrus fragrance. Although I don't always think about it with something like wipes, I was reassured to note they've not used any harsh chemicals in the wipes.

The packet clearly explains all the different grime, residue, dirt, and grease the wipes can be used to remove, such as oil, glue, paint - so you can use these whether you are a crafter, cleaning your car, decorating, gardening - or buy some for work if you are in the trades.

I'm also a bit of a rule breaker and use wipes not just on my hands, but sometimes clothes, and my bike as well. I tried out the Grime Boss ones after a messy glue session, when I'd been painting an upcycled shelf, and on my bike when I was cleaning up some grease.

One mistake I did make was just pulling out the wipes each time not really thinking - when they are plenty big enough to cut up if I only need them for small jobs. For my bike though - the whole wipe was ideal - I go through a lot of wipes normally as I don't want to wipe dirt over dirt - but the Grime Boss had plenty of wipe to use up and was more effective.

I normally just use warm water and sometimes soap cleaning my hands though, and this takes ages - and I don't think normal wipes would be a lot better. This wipe really helped get under the glue to get it off my hands instead of softening and moving it about.

I didn't think I'd get excited about a packet of wipes but these ones did really work well, and I'd look into buying more when they run out. Worth cutting up to make them go even further than they already do as well.

Pricing - Pack of 10 £2.99, pack of 30 £4.99, and pack of 60 £8.99

Stockists include Create and Craft and Homebase. Visit the Grime Boss website for more information.

The Christmas Holiday By Phillipa Ashley Book Review

I apologise now for any or all mentions of the word Christmas in this blog post, but with a lot going on in life and work I just have to go with whatever calls to me in my reading pile, which this time was The Christmas Holiday by Phillipa Ashley.  Released last year, this book will always have a special place in my bookish heart because I helped with some crafting inspiration for it, and to see my name in the credits of this paperback is something I will always treasure. I was so excited to see how and where my ideas were used, but managed to control my impatience and not skip any pages. Although I have been a member of Phillipa's Facebook group for a while, this is my first read of hers  (have another in my reading pile) so I opened this book with a mix of anticipation and a slight fear of the unknown - I really wanted to love the book I helped with! And love it I did. It made a refreshing change to read a novel set in the Lake District, and also one which wasn't just a stere

Hobbycraft Lino Printing Online Workshop Review

 One of the things that has been great to see now we have come through the worst of the Covid pandemic, has been companies continuing with the online activities they launched during the lockdowns. Hobbycraft now offer a wide range of workshops online and in-store through the year, and I recently took part in an online lino printing workshop, so I thought I'd blog a bit more about what's on offer and the workshop I took part in. What workshops are on offer?  These vary through the year, and can involve seasonal, adults, and kid's workshops in-store and online. If you click on the workshops you are interested in finding out more about, you can find out about what's included in the price, what you'll learn, and the available workshop dates, there's also the opportunity to request private events for groups. While I'm writing this, there are workshops on Cricut, watercolour painting, knitting, paint pouring, seasonal wreath making, using clay, sewing, and a new

Hocus Pocus 2 Film Review

Halloween is one of my favourite times of year for films, and I've loved all the witch and wizard magical, spooky-themed films since I was young. I was really looking forward to seeing Hocus Pocus 2, but I had no idea what to expect from the sequel. Would they pick up where they left off in 1993, move on a bit but with a strong connection to the original, or do something completely different? This Disney + release turned out to be the latter, and I found myself watching a modern-day Salem on screen. The old town is now a 'historic district' which has the air of a novel tourist attraction, complete with a mystical magic shop which presents the story of Salem and the Sanderson Sisters as some kind of commercial entertainment enterprise - hear the story, buy some magical merch.  The detail in Gilbert's shop and his stage show presentation are very apt for the modern day, and the feeling that the Sanderson sister's legend has become less powerful and more humorous myth
