This Tub O' Towels special feature is presented in collaboration with Federal Process Corporation...

One of my favorite household products is expanding. Tub O' Towels — the fantastic wipes which I've been using around the house and garage to help with a wide range of messes from slime in the carpet to grime on the engine, has new specialty wipes for specific surfaces. Now available at Target stores across the U.S. — and online at Target.com — Tub O' Towels Granite & Marble Wipes and Tub O' Towels Stainless Steel Wipes are the latest must-have for families looking for a convenient way to tackle messes and keep their homes looking great!

Tub O' Towels - Now at Target

In our bathrooms, which we remodeled a few years back, we followed the stone counter trend and that can lead to occasional cleaning challenges. You can say "Granite & Marble" (as the wipes do), but modern homes have counters crafted from a variety of similar materials that serve the same function, and the latest from Tub O' Towels can tackle them all. Tub O' Towels Granite & Marble Wipes cleans, polishes, and seals natural stone surfaces — and they're safe for use on marble, granite, quartz, travertine, limestone, onyx, Corian, Formica, siltstone, laminate, porcelain, tile, ceramic, fiberglass, and non-porous hard surface counters.

Tub O' Towels Heavy Duty Granite and Marble Wipes

Around here, we see a lot of water marks (and sometimes the ever-present slime, thanks to the kids), and the large 7" x 8" wipes make it easy to clean it all up. They can also tackle surface grease, soils and stains — so they're great to have on hand in the kitchen. 

Wiping...

The new Tub O' Towels Stainless Steel wipes handle one of the most obvious elements of grime in a modern home — stainless steel appliances. Our dishwasher is the only true stainless steel surface in our kitchen, and it's at the perfect height to attract fingerprints (it's also magnetic, so our kids like to put things on it). What's unique about these wipes is that they're soaked in an oil-based formula, so unlike other Tub O' Towels products which are water-based, the Stainless Steel Wipes may feel dry when removing them from the container. While they may have a certain feel, they're not dry, and you should wash your hands after witnessing the cleaning and polishing power at hand!

Tub O' Towels Heavy Duty Stainless Steel Wipes

Before and After: Tub O' Towels Heavy Duty Stainless Steel Wipes bring out the luster so much that our wood floor reflects in the stainless steel of the dishwasher front.

These wipes will remove fingerprints, water marks, grease stains, and general grime all while leaving behind a streak-free shine. There's no silicone, acid, or abrasives, and the wipes may be used on other polished metal surfaces including aluminum, copper, chrome, and brass.

Together, these new wipes are another win for Tub O' Towels and another Rock Father-approved household must-have! Time for a Target run!

We're just a couple weeks out from Christmas as I write this, and as usual there's some surprising late-season entries hitting stores that could be holiday hits. I'm talking about toys and games, of course - and they're not so much "late" as they are early previews of new things yet to come. From Mattel comes news that they've partnered with Daymond John, Co-Star and Investor on ABC's Shark Tank, to launch a new game: Silicon Valley Startups. With hilarity in mind, this new card game pits "Entrepreneurs" against each other to pitch hysterical startup ideas to "Investors." With all pitch ideas decided through random card draws, players must use their best improvisation skills to win the game.  The game is available now at Target (affiliate) with a national retail rollout planned for 2019.

In Walt Disney Animation Studios' Ralph Breaks the Internet, the Oh My Disney Princess scene (which I went behind-the-scenes of here) is one buzzed-about moment that's had people talking for months (SPOILER ALERT: The Disney Princesses are rather important in the grand scheme of things). Of course, many kids (and some grownups) have left the theater with a desire to own the Disney Princesses, and from Funko's Rock Candy line comes a collection of must-have vinyl figures that are going to be pretty well-wished-for this holiday season. Seven of them can be ordered via my friends at Entertainment Earth, while some of the others are retail exclusives to Target and others. Check this out...

The adoption process has been a part of play going back decades. From the Cabbage Patch Kids craze of 1983 to Build-A-Bear Workshop and the recent success of Distroller's Neonate Babies, kids have been loving the experience of becoming parents to a snuggly new friend. Now, just in-time for the holiday season comes some squishy new friends from Bulls-i-Toy. Squish 'Ums Pet Boutique Adoption Kits will hit stores as a Target Exclusive (avail: 11/22/18) in the U.S. Recommended for kids ages 6 and up, these new sets feature a trio of all-new super-soft slow-rise Squish 'Ums plus an Adoption Certificate!

Do have a Siwanator on your holiday shopping list? If so, you're gonna want to be on the lookout for the new JoJo Siwa Mini Myster Bow Box collection, set to hit Target stores beginning 11/19/2018. From Bulls-i-Toy, these new Bow Boxes each feature 1 Exclusive Mini Bow plus 4 Mini Mystery Bows for a total of five bows in each box for just $9.99. A 2018 Holiday Wish Guide™ Pick, the folks at Bulls-i-Toy sent us a couple of Bow Boxes to check out, and they've become wholeheartedly-approved by The Rock Daughters™!

If you have kids, there's a solid chance that slime is something of a fixture in your home at this point. Yes, every time I write about the slime craze I'm reminded of the fantastic He-Man and The Masters of the Universe Evil Horde Slime Pit that I once received as a kid but never got to play with (it was taken back to the store after a warning about staining was noted on the box). Decades later, my oldest daughter is all about the slime, from do-it-yourself kits to ready-made tubs. The consistency and texture varies greatly, but one regular purchase has been SLIMYGLOOP from Horizon Group USA. We just recently purchased a DIY Mermaid Slime Kit, but for the Halloween season they have something even better... ready-made Spooky SLIMYGLOOP MIX'EMS.
