PICKmeUp Napkins #Review and #Giveaway ~ CAN 03/31

| March 6, 2014 | 28 Comments


Living with a two-year-old can be messy – especially at mealtime. I use lots of paper towels in my household and always feel terrible about it because it contributes to so much waste. So why not use reusable cloth napkins?

I had the chance to try PICKmeUp napkins which were created by a mother and inspired by her daughter’s first day of kindergarten. She wanted to make her child smile everyday with a picture and message on her napkin and it quickly transformed into these vibrant, reusable cloth napkins.

I picked the Fun Picks set of five napkins which costs $25, as well as a couple of flowered ones sold separately for $6. They are 100% cotton, machine washable and dryer friendly. Frankly, these factors are crucial or else they just wouldn’t be that beneficial to use. I’ve washed the napkins and they were great afterwards too. They did not shrink too much and they were very soft.


The first day I used one of them, Nina noticed right away. The napkins are bright and colourful with interesting designs on them. She can’t read the positive messages on them yet, but I can see how that would be so cute for a kindergartener to see in their lunch box. Typically, when Nina makes a mess, she wants to clean her hands and face right away. For someone so messy with her toys, she sure is fussy when it comes to sticky fingers and mouths. But, with paper napkins, she could care less about what is cleaning her off. Suddenly, with the cloth napkins, she was mesmerized by them. She wanted to wipe everything with them. Also, before every dinner, she’s been asking for an “ankin” which obviously means “napkin.”


I liked how each set of five napkins was quite unique with interesting designs on them that aren’t too childish. You can see the whole collection and purchase them online.

Disclosure: I received the above mentioned product to review. All opinions are honest and my own.
