Command BATH11-ES Shower Caddy with Water Resistant Strips - Frosted
Command BATH11-ES Shower Caddy with Water Resistant Strips - Frosted
Offered by Homecare Essentials Limited
Price: £13.46

5.0 out of 5 stars Really useful and I like the design, 6 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I already have the corner version of this caddy, but we have a lot of shampoo and other bottles that need to be stored somewhere accessible, and this flat surface version complements the other one nicely. The quality is excellent, with smooth edges and a really suitable shape for draining water. It looks completely right, and the real question is not to get this caddy but where the best place is to fix it. The method of attaching is so simple and full instructions are given on the packaging. The caddy can be removed from its fixture and even the fixture can be easily removed without leaving surface damage.

5.0 out of 5 stars A trusted favourite, 3 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My family have been using Nivea's sun protection for a good number of years. From time to time we've had to make do with a different brand when we couldn't get this, and we've never liked them as much. Of course, the main reason we keep buying it is that it works. We're not that shy about slapping it on either, especially if spending time in the garden on a bright day. This bottle is factor 50, and our opinion is that if you're going to use something like this, why would you want to use anything less than the highest level of protection?

The bottle we received is slightly different from the standard sun cream we are used to – the cream comes out through a pump action nozzle – but it's just the same principle, put a dab on and rub it in. It has that slight chemical smell, but that's only really noticeable when you're putting it on, and then you don't notice it after that. It washes off easily too; it never sticks to your skin when you go to wash off afterwards.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blue index tabs, 2 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have been using these tabs, along with others in different colours, to help organise some documents. I find them very helpful, especially as you can use them on a variety of paper types – great if you want to use them as bookmarks in a reference book, and also great to use instead of A4 card index tabs. They come in their own dispenser – it is part of the packaging – and they are easy to write on. I like to use a CD marker pen, as it stands out best. They're great if you want to organise your papers and any student doing some research would no doubt find them invaluable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use and easy to read the measurements, 29 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I really like this little mechanical kitchen scale. The measurement face is easy to read and has both lbs and kgs. The adjustment dial under the weighing pan ledge is simple to use if you need to calibrate it for use without the dishwasher safe pan. The pan is ideally shaped and it fits on well, with next to no chance of it slipping off. The scales can take a maximum of 5kg / 11lb and the marked divisions are every 25g / 1oz. The scale fits into the pan for easy storage when not in use.


Command BATH12-ES Corner Caddy with Water Resistant Strips - Frosted
Command BATH12-ES Corner Caddy with Water Resistant Strips - Frosted
Price: £14.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Corner caddy, 29 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
If you need somewhere to put the shampoo bottles, etc, and could do with some holes in the bottom for the water to drain, this is a good solution. It will fit any standard corner in a shower, although not all baths will be of the right shape for this to be useful – have a good look at your bath beforehand, if that is where you might use it. There are four plastic attachments which come with adhesive pads to fix them permanently in place, but the corner caddy can be lifted off them if you need to remove it, and they will stay in place. It seems well made and there are no sharp edges.

4.0 out of 5 stars Light glider, 28 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a decent little steam iron, which is easy to use, gets the job done and takes next to no time to fill with water and be ready to produce steam. The buttons are all near to your thumb, apart from the dial which – like many other models of steam iron, sits under the handle where it is difficult to read what it says. The lead is a good length, 1.9m. The best thing is the very light weight of the steam iron. It comes, as you would expect, with a measuring cup and an instruction leaflet. It also has a 2 year warrantee.


Post-It Index Tabs - Assorted Pink Green and Orange
Post-It Index Tabs - Assorted Pink Green and Orange
Price: £4.39

5.0 out of 5 stars Index tabs (3 colours) and dispenser, 25 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a great idea. I used to use A4 sized page dividers for separating out pages within ring binders. The problem with these was that I would keep needing to change what was written on the tab, and that had to be done by either liquid paper or a small piece of adhesive label. Plus, I would not always need to use all the dividers in one ring binder, and spread them out between different binders, which often looked odd. But this way is far better – use the exact number of tabs you need, stick them to the appropriate pages and replace them as and when needed.

There are two versions of these Post It index tabs which I have tried. This version comes with three colours (orange, green and pink), which are kept in a handy slim plastic dispenser. This allows you to write what you need to on the tab and then pull it away, leaving the next one ready on the other side. You can write on them in biro or – my preferred way – CD surface pen.

The corners of the tabs are rounded and the clear sticky area is large enough to stick on the paper and not come away too easily when you use the tab to turn the pages. When you do peel it away from the page, it comes off easily and does not leave any residue. This also means they can be used, removed and reused several times, which is excellent.

For the other type of Post Index tab I mentioned, see the link below.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These tabs are a really great alternative to using A4 sized page dividers for separating out pages within ring binders. You just use the exact number of tabs you need, stick them to the appropriate pages and replace them as and when needed.

This type of Post It index tab has angular rather than rounded edges and are sold in separate individual colours, although this is a double pack of red and yellow. The packet they come in doubles as the dispenser, and when you remove one, the tab of the next one sticks up in the packet. It means that you can take one out at a time without worrying you're going to get more than one by accident. You can write on them in biro or – my preferred way – CD surface pen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Handy pads, 25 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As good, if not better than any similar steel wool product I have used, these 3M synthetic steel wool pads – of which there are six in a pack – are cut to just the right size and they are very useful, doing a good job of rust removal.

You can use them on metal and wood, but they are not recommended for glass.

These are the medium variety pads, and you could also buy fine and coarse versions depending on the task.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sticks with it, 24 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I don't usually have an issue with Post It notes falling off the surfaces I stick them to, unless I happen to brush past them accidentally. But there are some surfaces I have had problems with. The sticky on these super sticky notes is indeed noticeably stronger, and it means that the notes have a much better chance of resisting an accidental brushing past. It also means they can stick to a wider range of surfaces. I stuck one on a pane of glass and it stayed there. Where it did have trouble was a bathroom mirror, where it outlasted the normal Post It note in my test by twice as long, but ultimately did fall off.

This is a big packet of 12 pads of Post It notes, totalling 1080 individual notes, which should keep even the most regular user going for quite some while. Because of this, there is a lot more room on the packaging for information for the customer, including an item on sustainability. The notes are made from "a plant based adhesive and paper made from trees from sustainably managed forests". There is also a caution that the super sticky adhesive may lift some inks and not to use them on delicate papers and surfacing.

I wonder why all the Post It notes don't use the stronger adhesive?
