Sockettes very small and too much wasteful packaging...
on 2 February 2013
These came in one of these moulded plastic packages that have to be opened with a knife, and this was then inside a ridiculously huge cardboard box, so 1 star deducted for the annoying and wasteful over-packaging before I even got them open.
The floor cloths are identical in quality and size to the one that is supplied with the Vaporetto 950, so a good size and perfectly fine for the job. The 'sockettes' however, while OK quality-wise, are considerably smaller than the original, making them a very tight fit and quite hard to get on. I would imagine this would make them very difficult indeed if not impossible for anyone who may have arthritis or other dexterity problems. And I have my fingers crossed they won't shrink in the wash (I will edit the review if they do).
Disappointing - one has to wonder if the company couldn't have made just as much profit by providing slightly bigger 'sockettes' (socks, maybe?) and considerably less unnecessary plastic and cardboard (though to be fair the huge cardboard box is probably Amazon's fault). I wouldn't buy these again.
