Lightload Towels Review and Giveaway

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I recently had the opportunity to review Lightload towels. 



I have a toddler, so my purse and her baby backpack is always full to capacity with "just in case" items.  It was very appealing to have something that could absorb toddler messes and not have to carry something heavy to make it happen.






We decided to open this one on a day when we were stuck in a waiting room. I needed a diversion and fast. The toddler was successfully diverted.


She enjoyed opening the package and kept exclaiming it was a puck until I got it unwrapped, and she saw it became a towel. I am afraid of what she might do the next time she gets a hold of a hockey puck. 


Here is the towel in stages of unfolding. 


As you can see, it has a logo printed on it, and it really was crammed into that little piece of plastic. 

The company sent me the following info:

"World renowned Lightload Towels are the only beach towels that fit in your pocket. All our towels are survival tools. Use them for so much including a firestarter, face mask, insulation,diaper and more. The towels are soft against the skin and washable. Great for packing in small places and excellent for shedding weight."

True to advertising, it was absorbent. Had the toddler made some mess, I would have been able to clean it up with this and be pretty content. I don't know that I would use it on her skin. It is very scratchy, and I am certain she would be angry with me. It does soften up with water added, but it has to touch you for that to happen right?

For adults though, I think it could be very useful as a sports towel or for hunting or other active sports. I did not wash it in the washing machine, but it did hand wash fine. It is no longer puck shaped though, so the toddler is not as interested in it.. ;) 

My new use for it will be in my hockey bag. It is imperative to dry your skates after each use, and this towel is going to be fantastic for that purpose. It takes up no space in my bag. 

The others that I received will go back in the toddler bag for wet emergencies!


Thanks so much to Lightload for letting me test these out! Now here is your chance!
