Carplan Easi Grip Ice Scraper
Carplan Easi Grip Ice Scraper
Price: 1.41

3.0 out of 5 stars Well made scraper .... but too small, 15 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This may be the ideal tool for 'the lady of the house' but I find it too small.

Ergonomically it is fine and it works OK but I want to get the job done quickly and the blade on this model is just too small.

Can we have a man's version please?

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice book but the pages are a bit small., 15 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this size of AA atlas in error.

We only use the atlas when we are travelling long distances and
much preferred the larger page version with 3miles to the inch.

I'm sure that some people will prefer the smaller format but for us
it mean that more of the map is on the edges of the pages or the joins.


Swarfega Original Classic Hand Cleaner - 275ml
Swarfega Original Classic Hand Cleaner - 275ml
Price: 2.72

5.0 out of 5 stars Green Swafega is a great product ..., 15 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've used this product for years and this was a great price from Amazon.
I'm only a casual DIY person so did not need a great big jar of the stuff. 275ml is ideal.

I use it for cleaning all sorts of things including paint brushes; not just my hands.
In some respects the Orange swarfega (which I also have) is better for hands and comes with a dispenser.

4.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable but a bit too large .... have to wear two pairs of socks., 15 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I prefer these to the Dunlop shoes that I was using before but ......

I ordered a size 8 (as I always do) and for these shoes I had to fit a thin inner sole and have to wear 2 pairs of socks to keep them on.
During the winter this is not a problem as it helps to keep my feet warm .... but a bit of a nuisance.
It is partially the design ..... the back of the shoe is very low and its easy to slip out of them.

However, they are easy to put on (due to the low back) they are comfortable and seem to be wearing well.

1000 Mile 1950 All Terrain Sock Sapphire Mens -  Medium 6 - 8.5 UK
1000 Mile 1950 All Terrain Sock Sapphire Mens - Medium 6 - 8.5 UK
Price: 10.89

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice socks, they wear well but frankly are a bit small....., 15 Feb 2014
I take size 71/2 or 8 shoe and found these socks to be too tight and not long enough in the calf.
Although I could (and did) wear them I've passed them over to my wife who takes a size 5 shoe.
They fit her perfectly and she is very happy with them.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good story line ..... but quite hard work., 21 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book has a good story line but its too long, unnecessarily violent in parts, inconsistent in tenor and a bit rambling.
I found it quite hard work .... but I did finish it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very happy with clip on sunglasses., 21 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These clip-on sun glasses can be a little stiff to expand when fitting.
The spring on the bridge is a little tight .... but it does work OK.

Otherwise they are great and work just as expected.
The size information provided was very helpful and correct.
