This is the third one of this type of bathroom stand that I've bought. The first was white plastic with solid trays. Everything sat in pools of water so had to keep scooping the water out of each tray at the end of the shower time. (left it behind when moved) Decided to treat myself to a chrome one instead. Another mistake. Chrome, soap and constant water produce lots of rust. Spending hours scrubbing the rust off is not my idea of fun. This white plastic stand has lovely holes in the trays to let the water flow through, but not big enough to let small items fall. Now my white tiles stay white, and the stand just needs a quick wipe with a cloth. Brilliant.
I think the instructions could have been a bit clearer. Thankfully as I'd done it before, I more or less knew what to do. As the pole is sprung loaded, when put together its best to place the pole to the ceiling first, then bring in the bath/floor end into position, as this then saves marks on the ceiling. Found the poles on this stand slightly harder to slot together, so I put a little vasaline on the end of each and this helped a lot (must be getting weak in my old age !!!) I think one of the bands wasn't as tight as the others and the shelf didn't seem to hold as tightly into place as the other three, but this wasn't a problem as I use that one for the sponge instead of bottles. All the other shelfs are holding fast with all the bottles, and it looks very smart and clean. I'm very pleased with this purchase and would recommend it.
