Tesalate Sand Free Beach Towel Review

Tesalate Sand Free Beach Towel Review

I need to get this off my chest. It’s been bugging me for a while now. When Rob goes off on his photography rambles, especially those sea shore ones, it’s moi that’s left having to clean up the sandy, wet towel aftermath.

By the time he gets back to camp, the boot smells like a humid wet dog and I know I’m going to be cleaning sand out of the washing machine for days.

That’s why I was pretty stoked when Tesalate asked me to review one of their sand free beach towels. I must admit, I was a little skeptical at their statement of “Leave the beach at the beach” but I wasn’t going to miss this chance to prove them right or wrong!

So we put it to the test.

Tesalate Beach Towel Review

 

I’ll say upfront right now – this is the best travel towel we have ever used! Teselate offered us one for free to review but I’m not getting paid to write this and I don’t get any commission if you buy one. We honestly just love it!

Teselate invited me to choose a pattern from their wide catalogue selection and immediately, their “Awakening” design drew my attention. It goes so well with the colours of our More Rambling theme 😊

The reverse pattern on the towel is the Teselate black and white triangle design which is also striking. The one we tried measures 160cm by 80cm, so it is as long as our regular beach towels. The edges of the towel are bound in a thick protective stitch to prevent fraying and the Teselate logo sits proudly in the bottom corner. A logo anyone would be proud to show off.

The Tesalate Sand Free Beach Towel also comes with a lifetime guarantee

 

First impressions of Teselate Sand Free Beach Towel

 

The Tesalate team posted out the towel on the same day I ordered it and it arrived the next business day. The package was compact and light and I really couldn’t believe there was a full size towel inside.

On opening the package, I was delighted to find a drawstring carry bag containing the towel carefully wrapped in tissue paper and care instructions. It’s lovely little touches like this that tell you that a product is a cut above the rest.

 

Is the Teselate Towel Really Sand Free?

 

I could tell right away that the Tesalate Beach Towel would be very repellent to both sand and dirt because it doesn’t have the knitted fibre properties of your average beach towel to trap anything. Instead, it’s more like soft, flexible, one-piece waffle fabric.

It’s definitely not like other travel towels we’ve used. You know the ones, they have a creepy chamois feel that drag on the skin and make you feel icky. I’m very precious about how I feel after a shower!

What About When Wet?

I wasn’t so sure about what would happen when it got wet – so we put it to the test.

We were impressed by the result on four levels.

  • I dumped a pile of wet sand on the towel for a few minutes. It shook off right away
  • I doused it in around a litre of water, it repelled some and absorbed the rest
  • It was completely dry in around an hour in the sun
  • After a wash, it softened up even more and felt wonderful on the skin

‘Sand Free and Absorbent’ Claim Passed with flying colours!

Can the Teselate be Used as a Regular Household Towel?

 

Absolutely! As mentioned previously, after the first machine wash in cold water, the towel becomes really soft and pliable. It’s microfibre properties and lightness makes it the perfect towel to dry your hair or put it up in a turban. I used to hate washing my hair because of the length of time it took to deal with to get it dry.

My hair is naturally grey and very long, so rubbing with a normal towel means I end up in a huge tangle. With the Teselate towel, I wrap my hair for 5 minutes and it combs through after without a fight.

Teselate Towel on a Road Trip

 

The Teselate Towel is perfect for a road trip – useful in many circumstances. Because it dries so quickly, I’ve got no concerns about giving it a rinse through after a trip to the beach, knowing that it won’t take hours and hours before I can pack it away or use it again.

The beautiful designs mean that you can choose a pattern that works in your caravan as a protective throw. And if you are on a long drive in the heat, it’s great for wicking away moisture from your car seat and back.

Then it becomes the perfect towel to sit and have a picnic on, knowing you’re not going to have to bring the earth back with you.

After a shower, you can wrap it around your waist and use it as a sarong.

And because it is so small, it doesn’t take up the room like other towels. Saving you precious cabin space.

I’m not sure how we managed before!

The Verdict?

 

We are converts!

I highly recommend the Teselate Sand Free Beach Towel – but I’m sure you’ve guessed that already! Rob and I won’t be using anything else for our travels and day trips to the beach from now on. It saves so much time and hassle and is real value for money.

It’s the perfect gift for any outdoor lover in your life. There is a perfect size and design for everyone.

If the thought of sipping on an ice-cold beer or cocktail at your favourite picnic or BBQ spot this summer sounds like heaven on earth… but instead you end up with lukewarm lager and an ant infestation as soon as you put it down, we may have found the answer!

Read on to learn about the Products4Now Beer Bottle Insulator

Overview

 

Products4Now are an Aussie based company who, up until a few weeks ago only sold their products on the Amazon USA marketplace. Now that Amazon Australia is up and running, they have jumped on the chance to share their products here, with more lines coming on every month or two.

Their Double-Walled Stainless Steel Beer Bottle Insulator has been extremely popular in the US and, we have no doubt that Aussies will love it too.

PROS

  • Keeps the contents of most 330ml bottles perfectly chilled to the last drop
  • Outside is made out of food grade 18/8 stainless steel that can be decaled or etched
  • Inner lining is non-toxic and BPA free – the whole casing helps to ensure your bottle won’t break if dropped
  • Comes with a free eBook on how to bottle your own cocktails for use with the insulator
  • Helps to keep bugs out and keep the cold in

CONS

  • If you’re drinking from a bottle without a screw top lid, the lid on this insulator will help reduce leakage with the insulator screw top on, but not necessarily prevent it
  •  Not dishwasher safe

Features & Benefits

Double Walled Drink Carrier

With a high-quality durable food grade stainless steel outer and a non-toxic BPA free neoprene liner, this extra-durable double walled insulator is a little more sturdy and forgiving than a standard flask if dropped.

Fits the Majority of 330ml Bottles

Suitable for most 330ml / 12oz standard or long necked bottles. We’ve tried fitting in some of the shorter, stubbier bottles but they are too fat, however your average shape beer bottle fits like a glove. The neoprene inner liner holds the bottle in place and the bottom has a sponge foam base that helps to protect and insulate the bottle as well.

Our kids use them to keep their bottles of cola and lemonade cold too.

Easily Engraved or Decaled

Don’t we all just love a thoughtful and personalised gift? Because the outer stainless-steel wall is of such good quality, it takes to being engraved really well. We’ve bought a few and are giving them as gifts this Christmas – they’re so absolutely perfect for the dad who has everything!

Keeps Bugs Out!

This was something we noticed when attending a picnic recently. By using the insulator, we noticed that our drinks were not attracting the ants that seemed to be bothering everyone else. If they do crawl up the outside of the insulator they are stuck with no place to go when they get to the top as the top of your bottle does not touch the inside of the insulator at the neck.

Classy and Stylish

By putting bottles inside the insulator, it also acts as a very stylish drinks holder that attracts attention for all the right reasons. It’s really comfortable to hold and doesn’t slip easily out of your hands. Neither do your hands get cold or wet as would normally happen drinking from a cold glass bottle.

Ease of Use

The insulator comes in three parts. You unscrew the bottom to slip your bottle into the neoprene lining, then screw the bottom back on. There is also a screw top lid to go on the top which helps to prevent spillage if your bottle does not have its own screw top lid. Liquid will spill inside the insulator but not over the table! We have noticed that longer necked bottles will seal much better because they reach the top of the lid inside.

After using, the insulator is simply wiped clean for next use. It’s best to store the pieces separately so that any internal moisture evaporates properly and keeps the neoprene lining fresh and free from bacteria growth.

Customer Service

The Products4Now customer service team are pretty quick to get back to you if you have a question and, of course, Amazon will replace or refund your purchase if you have any issues with the product.

Value

Looking at other / similar use insulators on the market, the Products4Now Beer Insulator is great value considering it is of a much higher quality than the others. Currently, they have added a fun eBook on bottling your own cocktails to use with the insulator that is sent to you via email after purchase.

Summary

If you love your favourite drinks cold while the weather is hot, then this Beer Bottle Insulator Cooler is the perfect way to do it and with Christmas and New Year coming up, it’s also the perfect gift for your spouse, friend or secret Santa. And we love that it comes from a small Aussie business.

It doesn’t fit all 330ml bottles out there but the majority fit really well.
