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.

Action Themed Handmade Card - Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Hi Everyone, Hope you're all having a good week! Just want to say thanks to all of you that have been reading and commenting on my blog posts, especially the recent craft ones, joining in with the Daring Cardmakers challenges. I don't always have time to blog along, but this week the theme was 'action', and it was the perfect excuse to make a card with a topper kit I have had laying around for ages. The card I made is perfect for sports fans of all ages, and as a big diving fan, I'm sure this one will be a lot of fun for all. My main image and some of the extra bits are from a Hunkydory kit, I just love the image of the guy diving and his reflection shown in the water.  Copyright 2017 - These City Days I found some aperture cards in my stash and I'm enjoying decorating round the edges and adding some dimension to the designs. This time I went for a few sentiments, stars punched from holographic card, and some jute twine from Baker Ross.  I am slight

Cake Of The Week - Weetabix Loaf Cake (Guest Post)

  Have you had your Weetabix?!   As promised in last week's post, I bring you a healthy cake ( well as healthy as cake can be!) that is full of fibre, uses no fat, contains one of your five a day, and is as cheap as chips to make. Has my fab marketing pitch sold it to you yet? The quirk to this recipe? The main ingredient is that old breakfast favourite, Weetabix! I can almost see a few noses wrinkle up but please don't let this put you off. This is a lovely moist, fruity bake with a slightly chewy outer that sits perfectly with a teatime cuppa, and is great for lunch boxes as it travels really well.   I would definitely recommend giving this bake a whirl to share with your nearest and dearest. Don't spill the beans about the main ingredient and see if anyone can guess!   For this week's bake you will need the following equipment:  a 2lb loaf tin, baking paper, a mixing bowl,  a wooden spoon and a teaspoon.   Ingredients: 3 Weetabix biscuits ( own

Daring Cardmakers - Trim The Tree Craft Challenge - Cross Stitch Card

Hi Everyone, It's the start of another week, and I'm fresh from seeing some of my favourite musical friends, for the first time in a long while, at our Christmas light switch on. I have some video, but I have never edited video clips in my life, so while I figure out what I'm doing, time to catch up on some other blog posts. I have joined in and submitted craft projects to the Daring Cardmakers Challenge before, and it's been great fun. So I just want to thank everyone who has commented on my previous posts, and add to this weeks challenge 'Trim The Tree'. I am working my way through a few small cross stitch kits from magazine free gifts, and this tree design really stuck out from my stash. It was easy and fun to stitch, and I even tweaked it a bit to add some gold glitter for the star at the top. Instead of hanging it in the supplied aperture card though, I found a plant pot topper with 25 on, and mounted it on a card just above that. The finished car
