When Marcal Small Steps first contacted me about running a review/giveaway, I have to admit I was a bit leery of their products. Something about recycled paper products just seemed a little eww to me. Maybe I’m just weird like that.
At any rate, I know some of you have mentioned you liked Marcal products and I figured at least a number of you wouldn’t mind winning some free toilet paper, napkins, paper towels, and tissues, so I said I’d run the giveaway.
Then I realized that I meant I had to try out the recycled paper products myself so I could write the review! Uh-oh!
Well, it wasn’t nearly as bad as I thought.
To be perfectly honest, I was unimpressed with the toilet paper and tissues. They seemed cheap and cardboard-ish to me. We often buy Aldi toilet paper, so it’s not like we’re Charmin “snobs” or something. And we don’t use paper towels at our house, so we gave those away to some friends who do.
I really liked the dinner napkins, though, and thought they were very high quality. And even if the whole recycled paper products thing is a bit of a turn-off to me, I love the fact that their products are hypoallergenic and whitened without chlorine bleaching.
