1.0 out of 5 stars Broken within two uses., 13 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Returned within a week as it's really not very good.

First the entire mop feels rather flimsy, especially the joint connecting the unit to the mop head. It clicks ever time you stand the mop up but with a creaky plastic about to snap noise. The unit can also very easily be knocked over as it's top heavy. The cable clip under the handle to keep the cable out of the way does not hold the cable, it just repeatedly falls out. The onbord storage system is a genuin joke as all the pieces fit but then flick side to side as if they will drop out and break any second, which some did. Just use the bag.

Main reason for return was the 'velcro cloth pads'. This Vax uses a collection of plastic 'hoots/teeth' to grip the pad. On second use the cloth pad began rolling under the front of the base. Turning it over I found all the front section teeth had bent and could not longer grip rendering the mop useless. This is from using it to clean sealed hardwood floors.

The pull out integrated scrub brush section is forget it useless unless you are literally cleaning up a little dried mud (cat paw prints). It doesn't actually scrub as you can't put any pressure on it, it's just mildly more abrasive than the cloth pads.

Also I dropped the carpet attachment trying to fit it back into the storage bag and a corner snapped off, a fall or maybe two feet onto lino. That does not suggest durability.

Only plus side is our detergent bit did work but the smell is so faint I could hardly tell there was any sent at all while other in the house could not detect any scent.

Overall very disappointing for £80 plus cleaning solution.

3.0 out of 5 stars 1 ok, 1 damaged., 9 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I brought one box a year ago and it's still fine no broken catches and so on. However the one I just brought had the sticker welded on and was extremely difficult to remove and the hinges broke in two place after a few openings/closings. I now have to be extremely careful to not damage the centre hinge, the only one fully intact!

Mixed thoughts on these. They are nice and sharp and clip well however one blade has already rusted so they need to go in the bin soon. Lasted less than a year.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ok for the price I paid., 22 Nov. 2014

Warm soft and the right size I would say. Reasonably well constructed, no undone side seams yet, however both pockets broke the top stitch fairly quickly and unravelled and had to be machine repaired. Comfy hoodie though, zip works fine and stays up too.

3.0 out of 5 stars Only one pair worked, 22 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Used both pairs on and off for a few months now only to snip sewing thread. One pair is so warped and loose they went in the bin last week and the other pair after limited use is stiff. But...they are extremely cheap and one pair does clip thread so overall ok.

I do like this product. I am storing 100m Gutterman cotton and all purpose threads not sulky but and they fit well. Very light box but still somehow seems stable enough.

2.0 out of 5 stars No idea if genuine product, 15 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Paid for Pfaff bobbins but received bobbins in a clear sandwich bag, not genuine packaging so I have no idea what I was sent. Not willing to use them in my still under guarantee machine but they seems well made and are all of a similar colour and shape to each other, just don't know if they are Pfaff or compatible.

4.0 out of 5 stars seems good so far, 15 Jun. 2014

Used for a couple of projects at different speed and threads have not broken in use yet. Did get a snag and broke the lower looper thread a few times but once rethreaded no more breaking.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not selection shown, 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You recieved two boxes of threads. 'Standard' colours and 'Light' colours and four packs of needles by a company called SNF, 2 x 80 2 x 100. The needle packet advises they are for Singer household machines so I'm sure they will fit standard machines.

Although there is nothing wrong with the threads as they appear in the box (have not sewn with them yet) I thought I was buying the selection of colour shown but I did NOT receive the lovely colours above. I was looking forward to lovely blues and greens and pinks. I received only two blues, and a big old roll of orange and yellow and FOUR Browns (yuck!!) I reaalllyy didn't want!!. Keeping though as still not a bad set. I'll just give the brown to a friend.

The Pastels box you receive is almost all pastels is does have an odd reel of very bright red. A lot of peach/beige threads along side pinks, greens and blues.
