The Parasheet, Useful for Summer Picnics & Beach Visits


If you’re anything like me, extra sheets are a rarity in the apartment because 1. it discourages guests from overstaying their welcome, and 2. unlike people living in normal sized houses, we lack this thing called a “linen closet”, hence the space to even house extra sheets.  So, when deciding to go on a picnic, I always had to face the conundrum: is it really worth having my one extra sheet all grassy and dirty and taking up space in my laundry basket until I get around to doing laundry next…which, let’s be real, could be pushing (several) weeks?  Most often, the answer was a decisive no.



Thankfully, the folks at Grand Trunk have created the Parasheet, solving all my picnic woes.  The light-weight sheet packs compactly into its built-in stuff sack, making it small enough to fit into the crevice of almost any closet.  And its super durable nylon material guarantees you won’t have tons of mud, grass, or sand stuck to the bottom upon departure, because it shakes/wipes off quickly and easily…no laundry room trip required.



I tested the Parasheet out at Central Park, and can honestly say, I foresee a lot more picnics in my future.  A huge perk was, even though the ground was still a bit wet from a rainstorm the night before, the sheet stayed completely dry on the side we were laying on, and we didn’t feel any of those lingering raindrops at all.  When we were ready to leave, we simply shook, rolled, stuffed, and voila!  The Parasheet is ready for the next picnic.  Convenient?  I think yes.



Whether you’re going to a music festival at Governor’s Island, catching a day of waves at Brighton Beach, or picnicking in the park, the Parasheet will ensure you’re enjoying fun in the sun…without worrying about the messy cleanup afterwards.


Disclosure: I received the Parasheet courtesy of Grand Trunk as coordinated by Deep Creek Public Relations in consideration for product review.  All opinions are, of course, my own.
