The Balanced Lion Scrubbie....Review & Giveaway!

I am a person who loves things that are handmade.  There is just something so lovely about things that a person has taken time and care to create.  I also love supporting people in their business endeavors.  I know how hard it is to create a successful business (Reviewed by Mom has been a work in progress for more than 7 years now) so people with their own businesses are really near and dear to me. I was recently contacted by a reader about her business, The Balanced Lion.  The Balanced Lion is owned by a woman named Rose who creates dish "scrubbies" and body "scrubbies".  Scrubbies are a cross between a sponge and a dish cloth in case you were wondering.

Rose sent me one of her dish scrubbies to try out and allowed me to make a color choice.  It was hard to choose because her store featured so many bright and pretty colors.  I decided on teal and it shipped out and arrived to me super quickly....

Full disclosure.   I hate doing dishes.  It is my second most detested chore (right after putting laundry away!).  However....this cheerful little scrubby made me want to tackle the sink full of dishes that awaited.  Good timing! 

The Balanced Lion scrubbies are 100% polyester which means they are have texture but are not overly rough or scratchy.  I had a variety of dishes in the sink (oh joy!) from cooked on pans to drinking glasses and the scrubby was tough enough to remove cooked on food and gentle enough for my thin glass cups.  I liked the feel of the scrubbie and I felt like it got the job done fast.  I also liked that, because it was made of polyester, it dried very quickly and did not hold onto water like a sponge does (ewww).

Another fantastic feature of the scrubbies is that you can pop them right in the washer and dryer.  I love this!  I lost count of how many times I have washed this but it is at least 10....




After washing countless dishes and being washed and dried at least 10 times it still looks as good as new!  I think being able to wash, dry and reuse the scrubby makes it a far better choice than a traditional germy sponge.  Part of the durability is that Rose double knits these so they are extra strong.

On top of having dish scrubbies, there are also exfoliating body scrubbies for your body and face.  I have a shopping cart going right now at The Balanced Lion and I am ordering another dish scrubby for me (because I also hate laundry and I need my scrubbies!) and I am also going to get the exfoliating body scrubbies because my skin is SO dry.  I will let you know what I think of those but I am confident they will be wonderful.

I would highly recommend The Balanced Lion scrubbies.  They are durable, cute, great for the environment and much more sanitary.  These are a new kitchen staple for me.  Visit The Balanced Lion shop HERE. You can also find The Balanced Lion on Twitter and Facebook.

Giveaway!  I am so excited to tell you that one lucky Reviewed by Mom reader will win a Kitchen Scrubby of their choice.  Thanks so much to the sponsor and good luck! a Rafflecopter giveaway

I like the purple/purple and white ones. Maybe with purple I would find a way to like doing dishes? LOL I don't think so, but it's still a lifetime necessity. LOL
