I cannot find Viva paper towels anywhere! I live in a major city in Western Canada..is it not available here? Is it an American company? Which is the best alternative?
And is there a tutorial on the method available?

TIA! icon_smile.gif

I believe Viva is from Kleenex, owned by Kimberly-Clark, which is an American corporation.

I buy mine everytime we go to the States for a holiday as we can't get it in Canada. Have you checked out the high density foam roller - the "Melvira method"? Some like it even better than the paper towels. Or, you could try parchment paper as well.

when in a pinch, even wax paper will kinda do it

I use just regular computer paper - after it's crusted of course.

My husband works in the transportation department at Kimberly-Clark. His department actually schedules the delivery of product to the US and Canada. Unfortunately, he does not believe this particular product is available in Canada. So sorry! icon_sad.gif

You can, however, order them at
International.drugstore.com which has 6-packs of Viva for 12.07CAD with 5.99CAD Standard Shipping.

If he finds out something different at work tomorrow, I will let you know!

HTH!
