Addis Metal Galvanised Ground Spike, 38 mm
Addis Metal Galvanised Ground Spike, 38 mm
Price: £3.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Use better steel., 19 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a bit hard to drive into hard earth as it's not particularly hard steel, and bashing it in with a hammer bends the end. I poked a hole with a crowbar first, bit even a light tap to finish driving it home meant I had to straighten it out before I could use it.

Ubbi Tweat Snack Pot - Green
Ubbi Tweat Snack Pot - Green
Price: £9.81

3.0 out of 5 stars My little boy doesn't like it as the membrane is too hard for his little hands., 19 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a good product let down by inappropriate material choice for the soft membrane which retains the snack - it's too stiff and my little (15 month) old boy doesn't like sticking his hand in it.

It feels like a hard-ish urethane (Santoprene at a guess) , probably about 80 Shore A and I rather think something softer - perhaps 60 - would be more toddler friendly

Apart from that, it's an attractive, well made pot.


Honeywell HDE020E1 Dehumidifier, 20 Litres/24h
Honeywell HDE020E1 Dehumidifier, 20 Litres/24h
Price: £219.99

5.0 out of 5 stars More a stopgap than a fix., 19 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a good product, it's quiet, and maintains an acceptable level of humidity in the air, but it got me to thinking:

I live in an old house with solid walls and we have damp issues, and this is very much a sticking plaster as the drier I make the inside, the faster water moves across the walls into the house. So I'm talking tot he builder about how to fix the root cause, which is shot pointing and porous brick which whilst more expensive than a dehumidifier is the 'proper' way to deal with the problem.

I think if you need one of these, then you should look carefully at why.

Britain: Leading, Not Leaving: The Patriotic Case for Remaining in Europe

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure comedy gold., 19 July 2016
Gordon Brown, fresh from selling Britain's gold cheap, trashing the economy, and signing the Lisbon treaty whilst hiding under a sheet pretending it wasn't him, returns with a masterpiece to stand alongside his magnum opus 'courage'

Yes, it works, but you'll probably be better off wit something which protects the hard drive too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shade on demand., 17 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I shove mine in the airer hole in the lawn for my little boys to play under on sunny days. It makes a big enough patch of shade for them to not find it too much of an imposition. It's solid if of indifferent cosmetic quality and works fine. Should last a few years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Effective, no chemicals., 17 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's big and ugly and looks pretty unsightly in the conservatory but it slaughters flies like Friday 13th so it gets my vote.
No sprays, no chasing the round with a swatter, no sweat. Switch it on and the flies go away. It's like magic.


Scotch-Brite Non-Scratch Sponge Scourer Twin Pack (Pack of 12)
Scotch-Brite Non-Scratch Sponge Scourer Twin Pack (Pack of 12)

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as sponge scourers get, 12 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Scotchbrite is great stuff - it removes adhered food without marking the substrate, so it's great for non stick surfaces, plastic cups, plates, etc. It also does a very good job of polishing metal without scratching it.
There are other sponge scourers, but they are a waste of time.


Cath Kidston Meadow Posy Lip Butter Jar 15 g
Cath Kidston Meadow Posy Lip Butter Jar 15 g
Offered by English Designer Gifts
Price: £7.94

5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice, 12 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Firstly, the floral packaging for Cath Kidston's Meadow Posy Lip Butter is extremely pretty, even by her standards, mixing Victoriana with a look of the 1950s. It would be a very good addition to any dressing table or make-up bag. The scent, called Meadow Posy, is gorgeous. I have no idea what a meadow posy is supposed to smell like, but this does smell lovely: light and floral but nostalgic too. But how good is it at hydrating your lips? The main thing is it isn't too greasy: it is easily absorbed rather than just sitting on top of your lips but having no real effect. And the beeswax keeps your lips moist for a good long while without the need for constant reapplication. Recommended.
