AmazonBasics Velvet Shirt/Dress Hangers, Black, Se&hellip by AmazonBasics
5.0 out of 5 stars Hang ups, 31 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
You might think it's a waste on money buying hangers when you get them free when you buy clothes, but these are actually very nice and extremely reasonably priced.

They are very slimline but feel pretty strong. They are velvet covered and have a little notch so your clothes won't slip off. Once you've transferred a whole batch of your clothes on to these you can definitely see the advantage of using the same hangers for everything as clothes sit together a lot more happily and you can see what you have got - all at the same height. In my case, an awful lot of clothes!

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As well as giving a number of different recipes for different types of pasta, we are treated to an introduction on the history of pasta, a look at some of the different types (and an index of them all too!) and instructions for making your own.

Most of the recipes are fairly straightforward - nothing you might think was too much fuss to even bother with. There are also good colour photographs of just about everything, which is always a help!

It's good for explaining what different types of pasta work well with which different sauces and why. There are plenty of little anecdotes too - I liked Michael Palin and the Spam!

So, having learned that Spag Bol is… Read more
