JML Microfibre Super Kitchen Floor Multi Angled Flat String Mop
JML Microfibre Super Kitchen Floor Multi Angled Flat String Mop
Offered by JML Direct
Price: £9.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Lots of bending down, 13 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's very, very flimsy, you can't put any pressure down, so no more than a light pass over a floor is all you get,

over a half of the width is taken up by the two flexible wings, which upon use, ie along a skirting board, will then be slightly bent upwards - so not even touching the floor unless you bend down and bend them back every time, there is nothing there to keep them on the floor, like a spring, or better design.

I can't see any part lasting more than a few months the internal screw mechanism used on the telescopic handle is not very secure and there is a lot of thin cheap plastic parts around there.

Basically all you have here is a cloth on a flimsy pole, I had a 100% better experience by damping a ordinary microfiber cloth and putting it on the floor and then putting an upside down yard brush on top.

Handle is also pretty short, so prepare to bend over, not the only reason you'll be bending over either..... (If I had know it was one of those "seen on TV" products I'd have not put so much faith in the positive reviews, but I don't watch the TV)

I wouldn't recommend this at all
Mine arrived with a broken handle, so is going back, however I did get a chance to try it out.

Pro's
Quick delivery

Con's
Flimsy short handle
Wings not touching floor
On and off of the cloth fiddly and tiresome
No better than a cloth on the floor, pushed around by a brush.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rusty Broken Springs., 10 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bottle is fine, but they use a really cheap spring.

Bottle works by suction and use of a small sphere, along with a spring.
As soon as this spring gets wet it starts to rust, then breaks up and bits of it block the nozzal, then eventually when enough has disintegrated it will no longer function at all.

If you are DIY minded you could probably find a similar spring, but I've had no luck.

Contacting the seller was a wash, as they declined to respond to my request of a resolution.
Had to contact Amazon directly for a refund.

So poor materials, leading to failure and none responsive seller, is it worth your time for a spray bottle that works for a week, only you can decide.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as Image, 19 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not as shown in photo

Fine as it is, but I bought for display, and wanted what is shown in the image, ie Beeswax embossed on the blocks.

Instead I get the WAXFactory Advertising on the blocks instead. Disappointed and despite mentioning this to seller, received no reply .

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, this if fine, make sure you get one, 18 Sept. 2014
I forgot I ordered the smaller A5, I like it so much I'll be getting a larger on, keeps your knife from getting blunt, and the grid and angles are really useful.
Get one.

1.0 out of 5 stars Magnifier Not For TEXT, 18 Sept. 2014
Description indicated it was usable as a reading lamp with magnifier.

Unfortunately the magnifier is unusable for reading text.

Bullseye distortion lens only useful for non-text items.

The light works, so there's that, but expensive for a small plastic led light.

If it worked like the description suggested, ie to magnify text, so you can read it, then it would be really good, but with this bull's eye lens it makes it extremely annoying and difficult to get any text into focus, its' so bad I almost got angry with it.

If you only want to magnify NON-text items and its about a fiver inc postage then I'd recommend it.
For any other use its just a waste of money, just get yourself a nice large glass magnifier and use another light.

Or stop being cheap and buy one of those expensive ones that you looked at first, or get off to a optician - I jest ;)

2.0 out of 5 stars Not really that good, much better ones from other sellers out there., 21 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The metal is sharp and rips through the sandpaper, which you can solve by sanding it down.
But one of the holes is a little too close to the handle which makes tighting it up a real pain.

There are much better ones, that clip the paper in.

I would suggest not buying it from Consoletronic Ltd as they have twice sent me upsetting and condescending emails, just for asking a question about a order.

4.0 out of 5 stars Noisy fan but it works fine, 21 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Its fine for what it is, only takes out moisture from a highly concentrated humidity though, and the fan is very low quality with no concern for the mountings so it's pretty noisy.

Still it does it's job so grab one if you like.
