Plastic Carpet Protector Hallway Runner 27 Inches Wide Select You Length In 2ft Units
Plastic Carpet Protector Hallway Runner 27 Inches Wide Select You Length In 2ft Units
Offered by West Derby Carpets Online
Price: £2.49

5.0 out of 5 stars cat proofing, 31 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
With two new kittens and an open plan house, we were trying to find a way of keeping them out of our bedroom, without them scratching up the carpet. I tried the hint of double sided tape, which did work, but left a sticky band that we kept getting caught on.
I tried this cut to shape and stuck on to the carpet with the double sided tape, and it worked very well for a few months...stayed in place and was not noticeable.
Unfortunately, as they got older and their voices louder, they resorted to howling at the door instead, so we have admitted defeat, and they now sleep where they like.

This review is from: Papermania 8 Metallic Pens
These are super for drawing on black card...we did a project on constellations with a beaver group, and the results were very effective.
I shall keep them for 'special' uses....sure they will be used around Christmas!

5.0 out of 5 stars good for a crowd, 31 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am a devotee of my Aeropresse coffee maker, but although perfect for one or two cups, this doesn't really cope with larger quantities. I also like being able to get coffee ready to make, before the meal.
A filter system is my second choice, and this is an excellent one..solid and well designed. It keeps coffee at a good temperature, though it loses quality if kept too long.
I find I am still going back to the Aeropresse most of the time, for one or two cups, but like having this as an alternative when we have visitors.

Pair Of Traditional Armchair / Sofa Back Protector Covers - Faux Suede - Cypress Green

Price: £6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars They are excellent.. look good and stay in place well, 29 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having bought a new expensive recliner armchair, I wanted to protect the back, and reluctantly sent £60 for the matching cover. As it was going to take several weeks to arrive, I sent for these as a cheap stopgap. They are excellent..look good and stay in place well.
The 'official' one has now arrived. It doesn't fit as well, doesn't look as good, doesn't stay in place and is very poor value.
We are continuing to use this one, which is excellent in all ways. The cat likes sitting on it, too.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for me, 29 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have had the older kindle for some time, and loved it. As I use it mainly for reading in bed at night, I thought the paperwhite would be an improvement as I would not disturb my husband by having the bedside light on, so I bought one, and passed my earlier kindle on to my grandson.
The lighting was great, but the touchscreen drove me mad! As I was lying down and holding it, I kept accidentally bringing up the dictionary, and if I held it in the wrong way, found it had skipped several pages and I had great trouble finding my place. I only use it for straight reading, so did not make use of the extra features.
I have swapped back to my old kindle, where turning a page is more positive, and bought a clip on light.
My grandson is very happy with the paperwhite, so it may be an age problem, but now we are both satisfied.

we had used the earplugs before, but following on with the syringe proved very effective. My husband can now hear the hissing when the television sound box has not been turned off!

5.0 out of 5 stars several uses, 1 Jun 2014

I purchased these for my husband, who is having problems with things like buttons and shoelaces.
I hadn't realised I was buying three packs of 3, but have passed two sets to friends who have had hand injuries, and they all find it a good way to exercise fingers together and separately.

5.0 out of 5 stars not scary enough, 8 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We have two young cats, and I wanted to deter a pair of blackbirds from nesting in the ivy at the end of the garden. I thought these might do the trick.
They are really attractive, and fixed easily by sliding the sticks over ivy branches; they spin most of the time, and have stood up to rain and high wind.
Unfortunately,the blackbirds are completely undeterred by them.
Oh well, I'll have to think again. In the meantime, they brighten up our garden at a bargain price.

5.0 out of 5 stars great value, 30 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This shape of cap does not touch the top of the head, so can be more comfortable.
These are good quality material....100% cotton....well made and great value.
The postage does add to the cost, but it helps to buy more than one at a time, and the choice of colours makes this easy.
