Giveaway: Microfiber Spa Collection from ebody

ebody spa collection giveaway via mindfulmomma.com

Thanks to e-cloth for sponsoring this giveaway post!


Anyone up for a spa day? OK, how about a spa day without the spa? No need to leave home! Grab your favorite non-toxic bubble bath and listen up for a chance to win a set of luxurious, microfiber mitts and towels to help make your home bathing experience spa-worthy!

The Magic of Microfiber

I’m usually a natural fiber kind of gal but I’ve grown to appreciate the benefits of microfiber for cleaning because it is SO crazy absorbent and dries out quickly, meaning my cleaning cloths aren’t getting mildewy under the sink. It wasn’t until e-cloth approached me about doing a giveaway of their spa line that I really looked into how their microfiber works.

In a nutshell, e-cloth’s microfiber fabrics are a mix of polyester and polyamide (nylon) fibers that are split many, many times to create ultra fine fibers – 1000 times finer than cotton fibers. These tiny fibers naturally attract water, oil, dust, dirt and bacteria, lifting them up and drawing them into the cloth. Where the magic comes in is that cleaning sprays are not needed – e-cloth products work with just water alone! (See website for much more detail.) The microfiber fabric contains no chemicals, no silver nanoparticles, nothing added at all. It’s simply the manufacturing process that creates the magic. Now, I have to admit that I usually use a non-toxic cleaning spray or some vinegar just because old habits die hard, but knowing that I can give a quick swipe to a kitchen counter and get up to 99% of the bacteria off makes me a very happy camper.

ebody Spa Collection 

Moving onto the spa line, which is what we’re really here for….

The ebody Spa Collection is a set of personal cleaning mitts and ultra absorbent towels made from the same microfiber cloth technology used for their famous cleaning cloths. Unlike regular e-cloth products, which work with only water, the ebody spa mitts work best with a small amount of non-toxic soap or cleanser. Lather it up and you’ve got tiny microbubbles that help give you a deep clean without harsh chemicals.  Microfiber towels rapidly draw moisture away from your body and hair, so you can dry off quickly and get on with things.

The Giveaway

One lucky Mindful Momma reader will win the following 4 products from the ebody Spa Collection:

Exfoliating Body Mitt – My favorite product of the bunch, this mitt gives me just enough scrub to exfoliate without being the least bit harsh. And kudos to the designer for including a thumb hole for easy use.

Face Cleansing Mitt – Made of super soft microfiber fabric, this mitt gently removes makeup, dirt and excess oil from your face, while giving it a deep cleanse at the same time.

Gym Towel – What better place for microfiber than at the gym where you need to mop up sweat in a hurry and get back to what you’re there for. My husband keeps the gym towel at the end of his yoga mat to keep from slipping during a sweaty practice. It’s just the right size – 31.5″ x 9.5″.

Luxury Bath Towel – You know those fluffy white towels you get in a high-end spa? Well that’s what this is – but even better because it’s ultra absorbent, so your hair dries in record time.

Want to win? Enter using the Rafflecopter form below. The giveaway will be open through midnight on Monday, November 10th, 2014. Winners must be over 18 and have a U.S. shipping address. Good luck!

Better Snacks

Two Moms in the Raw via mindfulmomma.com

Yeah, yeah, I know, the best advice for a healthy diet is to eat nothing but whole foods that you have cooked or prepared yourself. But that pretty much eliminates all packaged food - and I'm just not that good. I need my crunchy, salty, on-the-go fix every once in a while and my kids do too. I'm not the type to deny my family (or … [Continue reading]

Taking Time to Grieve

Taking Time to Grieve via mindfulmomma.com

You may have noticed that I haven't posted in a while. I've been on a journey that I desperately wish I wasn't on. My dear mother found out she had cancer and passed away in a very short period of time. I'm grateful that my sisters and I were able to be with her at the end of her life but devastated at the loss of the incredibly caring … [Continue reading]
