TALK OF THE TOWN: Fressia Multipurpose Wonder Wipe Made in Nigeria

Image
A Wipe so Wonder-ful: Fressia Multipurpose Wonder Wipe! Wondering what is Wonder Wipe? It is called so because it is indeed so Wonder-ful. This is a multipurpose roll with 50 reusable sheets. How pocket-friendly is that? Unlike regular tissue paper rolls that can only be used one time, each sheet from Fressia Multipurpose Wonder Wipe can be used, washed and reused at least 5 times! In addition to saving your money, Wonder Wipe is hygienic because it is thin and dries faster than thicker wiping sponges that keep moisture for long and thus store more bacteria. Don’t let the thinness of the wipe trick you into believing that it is not durable enough to even remove stubborn oil and grease stains and to be used on many surfaces other than your kitchen counter.

I would have saved a lot of money” (Eb

The fantasies of weddings are not the realities of marriages. Is it not idiotic to whine about the loud snores of your spouse when you should have known that before your marriage?
