Take the #BountyChallenge GIVEAWAY!! June 30, 2013 Giveaways 80 Comments 11126 You guys. I am seriously so excited to be able to offer this giveaway to you because it is SO AWESOME. The folks at The Home Depot and Proctor & Gamble have teamed up for the #BountyChallenge, and they were so kind to let me in on the fun. Ya’ll know I love getting messy around here. No matter what I’m doing, it always ends up looking like a bomb went off in my house. I try to be one of those people that cleans as I go, but it’s just not natural for me. Plus, I don’t like stopping in the middle of my “flow” to clean. Come on, I know you can relate. The timing of this challenge couldn’t have been more perfect because I am already in the trenches with my deck project. I might have mentioned it to you over the last couple of weeks that I have started using Behr Deckover on my (4) decks/porches, but the weather wasn’t cooperating. With all the stopping and starting of rain, I have to constantly clean up! Literally I have to wash all my brushes and rollers every day because the weather shifts. I would say that I decided to put Bounty to the test for this project, but the truth is that I already use Bounty so I know it’s awesome 🙂 So I’ll just tell you about how I use it because it might be a little…um…odd? Did you expect anything less? I set up my paint like this once a loooong time ago, and seriously this is what I do all the time now. I have no explanation except that it works for me. I don’t even know if this is sanctioned use of a paper towel. But what I do know is that when I’m painting the trim in my house for the 100 billionth time, I drag the can and slide the rest of the set up all around with me. I like to paint right from the can in most cases (I know, bad) as well as stir intermittently. The Bounty slides easily on the floor without tearing, and it keeps rogue paint from dripping through to the floor. Then- when I’m done painting- I wash my brush and do this. Every. Single. Time. I discovered one day that leaving the brush to dry directly on the sink left a spot of rust behind, so this was my solution and I’ve been doing it that way ever since. You’re impressed, I can tell. We all have our strengths, and innovative paper towel use just happens to be mine. So, are you ready to hear what the #BountyChallange prize pack has in store for ONE lucky winner?! The Prize Pack: 2 rolls of Bounty Paper Towels $250 Home Depot gift card YES $250 to buy a bunch of things at The Home Depot to make a giant mess and then Bounty paper towels to clean it up!
