Like many of you, I miss travelling. Not only for the privilege of seeing, feeling and breathing in the wonders of the world, but for the people I meet along the way. Many who have become friends.
As a travel writer with a dedicated career that encompasses all things travel, not being able to move much has been an adjustment that has affirmed my love for the freedom I previously enjoyed. Yet never took for granted. That said, I have appreciated the time to be quiet, to write, create, and plan other people’s dream holidays – which in itself is fulfilling – knowing that soon enough travel will resume and when it does I’ll be taking to the sky like a bird, and revelling in it. More prepared and appreciative than ever.
This means that when I was approached by Republic PR and introduced to the new Personal Touch Auto Washing Power Sheets and offered a product that provides a practical and environmentally friendly solution to ‘doing laundry on the go’, I welcomed it.
As I always unpack everywhere that I stay, even if only for a night. Wash as I go. Air out my things and don’t like ‘smell of suitcase’ – tricky for a girl on the road. But this practice does make Personal Touch Auto Washing Powder Sheets a really good match for me.
With 64% less plastic being used, lighter to carry, no powder spill in my luggage, a fold-out bucket (perfect for those bush trips), and multi-tasking pegs, I’m thrilled. When the world opens up, these are items I’ll be taking with me when I hit the road. Also included in my drop was Increda-Peg ZA. 100% recycled plastic multi-purpose pegs make in South Africa we should all consider using. Read more about both products below.
Afterall, a product that is kinder to the environment – is a product for me.
Personal Touch Washing Powder Sheets
Personal Touch is bringing innovation to the laundry market with its Auto Washing Powder Sheets. With innovative research and development at the heart of this South African first, Personal Touch is not paving the way in washing powders but starting an entirely new road. “Personal Touch’s new Auto Washing Powder Sheets do not only tip the innovation scales in their favour but delivers on what they promise – Smart Sheets, Easy Laundry,” says Sarah Webb, brand manager for Personal Touch.
Easy to use, friendlier to the environment, lighter to carry, compact to store, and most importantly results in the ultra-clean laundry, with no residue, Personal Touch Auto Washing Powder Sheets is a product that finally takes the stress out of laundry, by doing it the smart way:
- No more mathematical conundrums to figure out how much washing powder to use for a load of washing. Half a load (2-3kg) – use half a sheet. A full load (4-6kg) – use one full sheet. Nothing could be easier. Simply place the sheet into the drum, add your clothes and begin the washing cycle.
- Whoever said washing powder is a space saver? No one. It is time for us to think inside the box! These innovative sheets come in a compact, easy to carry, easy to store and easy to use box, that won’t take up too much of your much-needed cupboard space. The equivalent of a 2kg bag of washing powder, is available in a box weighing only 90g, with each box containing 18 sheets which allow for more washes than a 2kg bag of washing powder.
- Think green. When it comes to Personal Touch Auto Washing Powder Sheets, you can rest assured that you are being friendlier to the environment, with 64% less plastic being used than in a 2kg bag of washing powder. Swapping from powder to sheets is the green decision.
- Clean clothes, with no residue – now that is smart laundry. Equally effective in both hot and cold water, Personal Touch Washing Sheets promise ultra-clean results while being tough on stains, creating a new laundry experience from beginning to the end.
“The future of the laundry industry has arrived and we at Personal Touch are proud to be driving this innovation, which we have no doubt will soon be the new normal in the industry,” says Webb.
Increda-Peg ZA is a proudly South African patent that has taken the clothing peg industry by storm. Increda-Peg is both affordable and multifunctional. As their slogan says, ‘Increda-Peg is not just a peg.’ It can also be used to double the utility of your washing line, for wardrobe management by creating space in your cupboard, gardening, and camping. With its pull-on and twist-off functionality, Increda-Peg is also arthritis-friendly.
One of the most prominent features of Increda-Peg is its durability. Unlike your traditional clothing pegs, Increda-Peg is spring-free and made from quality recycled plastic. This extends the lifespan of our peg substantially, relieving you from the constant repurchasing that comes with your traditional pegs. Increda-Peg is made entirely from recycled plastic and on average 1 ton of plastic is recycled every month while manufacturing this proudly South African product.
