Kael&Kaed Un-Paper Towels Review and Discount Code


I was selected back in February to review a new product made by Kael&Kaed, which happened to be something I was really wanting to try, but too cheap to make a formal purchase. I was sent 4 un-paper towels (meaning, cloth and reusable VS paper and trash). I'll elaborate what I mean by being to cheap to make a formal purchase of un-paper towels, by saying that I've basically picked up a back of 12 washcloths from the local dollar store for about $3, and that's what I use for "un-paper towels" around the house. For cleaning, for wiping dirty faces, hands, and messes. Even for draining fried foods. Sure, they aren't anything cute to look at, but they do the job! So being able to try something that is cute to look at was just icing and sprinkles on a long waiting cake.


Aside from the cotton prints, and the super soft woven fabric on the opposite side, I love that these un-paper towels have snaps. If you're new to these like I was, you're probably wondering right now why on earth there are snaps on a piece of cloth that's to be used as a paper towel. Well, it's actually a pretty genius idea, especially in a family environment where people will be looking for a roll of paper towels, not a stack of cloths. Yeah, that's right, it's to snap the towels together so they can be formed into a roll.


The only problem I had was that these were so much smaller than a paper towel (measuring 6.5"x10" each), that even with 2 layers of cloth I didn't find them to absorb very much. Not that I wouldn't use them, but this smaller size worked best for wiping dirty tables or countertops, or cleaning up the baby, instead of soaking up a spill.


Aside from that, they have made a permanent addition to out kitchen. Tasha, the mama behind the scenes at Kael&Kaed would like to offer you all 20% off instock items in her shop, by using code JUNE20OFF.

You can visit Kael&Kaeds' shop (and use the discount code), and "like" them on Facebook :-)

  1. Thanks for your review! They are cute, but probably not big enough for us. My kids make HUGE spills. Like put the ladle under the water and hose my floor huge. I'm not sure if I can justify 'cute' as a reason for me buy them though LOL

  4. I love the prints, but like you said, they look way too small to be practical for most everyday uses.

  7. The owl print is the same as one of the thirstie wrap duo dipes now that I got to looking. I am not sure how I would do with "Un paper towels" it is basically just a towel which adds more laundry to my already heaping pile:( Now if hemp were legal I would def be using hemp paper towels.

  8. I had not heard of these, but recently reading all the talk on going to cloth wipes I was thinking how wasteful I am with our paper towels. Could definitely use these to wipe all the gunk off my son when he is done eating. Would probably use at least two each meal though.

  10. I've been checking out different kinds of unpaper towels for awhile now and am still trying to convince my husband we need to make the switch. Not only are they so much better for the environment (and our budget:)), I love all the cute prints they come in!
