You guys.

I am seriously so excited to be able to offer this giveaway to you because it is SO AWESOME. The folks at The Home Depot and Proctor & Gamble have teamed up for the #BountyChallenge, and they were so kind to let me in on the fun. Ya’ll know I love getting messy around here.

No matter what I’m doing, it always ends up looking like a bomb went off in my house. I try to be one of those people that cleans as I go, but it’s just not natural for me. Plus, I don’t like stopping in the middle of my “flow” to clean. Come on, I know you can relate. The timing of this challenge couldn’t have been more perfect because I am already in the trenches with my deck project. I might have mentioned it to you over the last couple of weeks that I have started using Behr Deckover on my (4) decks/porches, but the weather wasn’t cooperating. With all the stopping and starting of rain, I have to constantly clean up! Literally I have to wash all my brushes and rollers every day because the weather shifts.

I would say that I decided to put Bounty to the test for this project, but the truth is that I already use Bounty so I know it’s awesome :) So I’ll just tell you about how I use it because it might be a little…um…odd? Did you expect anything less?

I set up my paint like this once a loooong time ago, and seriously this is what I do all the time now. I have no explanation except that it works for me. I don’t even know if this is sanctioned use of a paper towel. But what I do know is that when I’m painting the trim in my house for the 100 billionth time, I drag the can and slide the rest of the set up all around with me. I like to paint right from the can in most cases (I know, bad) as well as stir intermittently. The Bounty slides easily on the floor without tearing, and it keeps rogue paint from dripping through to the floor.

Then- when I’m done painting- I wash my brush and do this. Every. Single. Time.

I discovered one day that leaving the brush to dry directly on the sink left a spot of rust behind, so this was my solution and I’ve been doing it that way ever since. You’re impressed, I can tell. We all have our strengths, and innovative paper towel use just happens to be mine.

    Oh so many projects to be done, and with the new munchkin not much $$ to do little projects.

  22. Katie Contests

    We just redid our deck, so we’d use the towels for cleanup and the gc for some new furniture!

  23. jesse

    moving to a new state with nothing but your dog was ruff (pun intended), turning your very first apt into a home has been more of a challenge yet has made me channel my inner crafter. between learning to cook and one very messy spastic dog we go throw lots of paper towels and often times start just to restart projects, could use some help making it all come together :)

  24. Amanda Sakovitz

    I would get a light fixture in my dining room and repaint one of the walls for a dramatic, modern feel

  29. Jessica @ FickleSubmarine

    I have been following you for a while, but have recently changed my blog name (formerly We are near the end of the conversion of a barn into a house and will be moving in at the end of this month. I would use this Home Depot prize to purchase materials to build some furniture and would use the Bounty paper towels to stain the furniture and clean up the big mess I am sure I will make in the building and staining process. Bounty is the ONLY paper towel brand we use in our home.
