Spirella Malibu Toilet Brush Porcelain White 40 cm x 11 cm
Spirella Malibu Toilet Brush Porcelain White 40 cm x 11 cm
Price: £27.53

4.0 out of 5 stars Good design and practical, 2 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of the more attractive loo brushes out there - if such things can be considered attractive at all! The Porcelain base feels sturdy on the floor and stops it being knocked over as easily as our rusty old metal one was, which brings me neatly on to... Rust! No rust at all because it's porcelain!

The other benefit of this package is that the handle and brush does not have an integral lid like other designs. This allows any residual water in the base to evaporate to a degree so the brush doesn't tend to sit in an accumulated pool of water like it does with some. The holder the brush sits in is also not too deep either, allowing you to tip out any excess liquid and clean it easily without having to reach right inside.

The only thing that could be better is the feel of the handle and brush, which is a lit bit wobbly but it's not a major floor. It just feels so much less robust when compared to the base.

A lovely simple design that looks at home in a modern bathroom. It's simple to fix in place and even easier to replace the loo roll when it runs out. Now no one in our household has an excuse to be lazy!

3.0 out of 5 stars A good toy in principle, if a little noisy, 2 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Weasel Ball (Toy)
It works fine although it could do with being a little quieter. For that reason my two cats haven't really taken to it. They will get up close when it's switched off but keep their distance when it starts rolling around and making a noise. Without them interacting with it, it just carries on around in a circle but takes a different path when nudged. The plastic tie attaching the weasel to the ball is pretty much the same as they use to attach price tags to clothing, so I'm unsure how durable this would be if it did start getting used a bit more. I guess I may never know...!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great case for the money, 2 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great case for the money. Doesn't add a great deal to the dimensions of the phone or weight. It's also nice to still be able to see the back of the phone although the Jetech logo could be placed a bit lower so it doesn't sit over the writing underneath - a minor issue though. More importantly it protects the phone well and mine has already survived a few trips to the floor. The cut outs for the silent switch, microphone, chagrining connector and headphone are all pretty much bang on. The camera cut out less so, which it being slightly too big in one direction - it's tight to the top of the camera but with a fair bit of room underneath. Again, a small issue in the grand scheme of things.

I used this for sticking the pelmets on venetian blinds and it worked a treat. Sticky, good grip and easy to cut. What more do you need?!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good chisels - just needs to include instructions for accessories, 2 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great chisels, very sharp and ready to use straight out of the box. My on criticism is the lack of instructions on how to sharpen to the correct profile using the honing guide. It was only due to the fact I purchased a Stanley Plane at a similar time which had instructions on sharpening the plane blade that helped me out. Other than that, very pleased.

4.0 out of 5 stars ... so has started to wear faster than you might like or expect, 2 Dec 2014

Quite soft so has started to wear faster than you might like or expect, but for the price it's not too bad. It's a simple but surprisingly attractive design in my eyes too.


Skagen SKW6071 Mens White and Steel Klassik Chronograph Watch
Skagen SKW6071 Mens White and Steel Klassik Chronograph Watch

4.0 out of 5 stars Skagen seems to have quite a bad reputation online, 2 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a lovely looking watch but then these things are subjective so that much you can decide for yourself! Quality wise, Skagen seems to have quite a bad reputation online; straps breaking and glass smashing very easily. So far I've not had a problem, which includes dropping the watch face down from wrist height onto a wooden floor. When I picked it up, I feared the worse but there wasn't a mark on it. The needle for the stop watch timer bit rests slightly before 12 o'clock which is a slight bugbear but not a major issue. Other than that I can't fault it, especially as the price is very reasonable for such a smart looking watch.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor reception with no resolution from Gigaset, 2 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these for my Mum and the reception more than a few metres from the base is so poor that I only phone her mobile now. She has had her phone line tested, where no faults were found. The handsets have been sent back to Gigaset who reported no faults. The most ironic part of this, is when she phoned from the Gigaset handset to organise the return, the lady from customer service commented repeatedly on how bad the line was and that she couldn't here my mum properly. The house is quite small, plasterboard walls - not thick brickwork, so really there is no excuse for how bad the reception is. Without resolution from Gigaset, these phones are now all but redundant unless you are within sight of the base, in which case she may as well return to an old fashioned corded phone!

AA Heavy Duty Tow Rope
AA Heavy Duty Tow Rope
Offered by Sivitec_Direct
Price: £8.40

3.0 out of 5 stars OK but little things let it down, 22 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Overall this is a reasonable bit of kit but with a few niggles that let it down.

The first issue is that the hooks are quite small and the spring loaded opening takes up too much space inside the loop of the hook when pushed open, meaning that it doesn't fit over some towing eyes. For instance, I was able to connect it easily to the towing eye of the car that had broken down but not to the car doing the towing, as the metal eyelet was slightly thicker. Due to the position under the rear bumper, I then wasn't able to able to form a loop with the rope either, as suggested in the instructions if no suitable towing eyelet is available. I had this issue on my last tow rope from Halfords, with the hook being a fraction too small. So either I am missing something or they are all made by the same people or to a particular design standard.

The only other minor gripe (which would only be a half star loss if it were possible) is the storage bag. It's handy to be able to store it neatly, but is different to the one pictured and appears to be a fraction smaller. As such, you have to roll it up extremely neatly to get it in the bag. If they had given it just a little more material, it would be so much easier! A minor grumble, but a grumble none the less!

Overall, I would say the ribbon design is superior to the round rope style, even just from the point of view of storage and the bright colour is a very good idea.
