There are some things you just don’t skimp on.
- Coffee (have you ever tried the 49p jar of supermarket own coffee? I did once. Never again)
- Toilet Tissue (It’s 2017, no-one should be using that shiny paper or breathe and it dissolves stuff).
- Rubber Gloves.
We know what it means to have to tighten your belt, between the hit to our income when I gave up my pretty well-paid career after having Kieran to go self-employed and then again when Roy was made redundant. You’d be surprised what you can do without and how creative you can be. One thing I presumed I would have to skimp on was my favourite cleaning-related products, namely my Marigolds.
Take it from someone who isn’t a great fan of doing dishes or housework, often chuntering under her breath as she does both, having a decent brand such as Marigold under your sink or draped over your taps makes all the difference. Given that the quality between the cheapest cleaning ranges and the Marigolds are miles apart and yet the prices significantly less so, they are (thankfully) a hard-working luxury you can afford.
Brands come and brands go and so it’s a testament to how much our beloved and well-known Marigolds are, given that this year is their 70th anniversary. Better still, Marigold, best known for their rubber gloves, also sell a number of other cleaning must-haves.
It says something about the stage I’ve reached in my life when I was tickled pink to receive this PR package from the lovelies at Marigold to try some of the other items in the range (already being a washing up glove fan).
I love the fact that this brand has been going so long and will continue to be a loyal supporter. You can find out more about their 70-year history and their current ranges here or join in the chatter over on Facebook. I can recommend all of these cleaning tools, with my gloves being a firm favourite as always (they don’t roll down and so you don’t end up with water in your gloves, which defeats the object and is no good for people who, like me, suffer from dry skin easily).
Overall I have to give Marigold a 5/5* rating, for the quality of their housework must-haves, their long-time commitment to the cleaning cause and the fact that they are really good value for money.
**I was sent these products for free. Marigold have had no input into my write-up and all opinions are my own.
