3.0 out of 5 stars Good idea, but not v practical, 7 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We use Ecover hand soap a lot - in kitchen, bathroom, etc - and, given Ecover is supposed to be a green company, it always seemed a great waste just to chuck out the empty, pump-action dispensers when they were finished with, so this is a great idea, and should save a lot of money.

However, it is a right old faff decanting from the big container into the small containers. The big container is unwieldly, heavy (certainly to start off with, until it empties out), and has a wide opening; the small containers have narrow openings, and pouring the soap into them is quite a challenge - and v time-consuming. you are quite likely to end up spilling/wasting much of the soap, which slightly defeats the object. I tried using a small funnel, but the soap is thick and so didn't pass through it very quickly or easily. I now use a big funnel, which works more quickly but, because of its size, makes the receiving container topple over quite easily (you need an extra person to hold it steady.......I mean, really, who has time for all this......). It's a shame Ecover doesn't supply the big container with a pump dispenser - similar to the ones on the small containers - so you can easily pump from one to the other, without all this kind of rigmarole.......

the soap itself is very nice, by the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality and smart looking PJs, 18 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have bought several pairs of these for my husband, who doesn't usually wear jimjams, when he unexpectedly had to spend time in hospital. He really likes them and is very pleased with the quality and fit. They are made of a nice cotton material, which washes well and dries quickly (they also stand up to being tumble dried, with no problems). They look smart, more like a shirt and shorts set than pyjamas, cover everything that needs to be covered (nuff said), and he finds them comfortable to wear all day and sleep in. I hesitated buying them because they were such a good price I thought they might be cheap and nasty or made from horrible synthetic material, but they aren't at all. would definitely recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not cheap - but amazingly effective, 18 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a brilliant little device. We have used it in a bathroom which was prone to being damp, and a bedroom which I use for drying clothes. Each time, the amount of water it sucks out of the air is just incredible. We have found it to be very effective and easy to use. It is quite heavy to lug around, but that is mainly because it feels really good and robust quality. Couldn't be more delighted with it and, although it is pretty expensive, by saving the rooms from so much damp, I think it will pay for itself in reduced redecorating costs pretty quickly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great clippers, 18 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are great. good quality and reasonable value. it is really useful that they are rechargeable, which means you can use them in the bathroom. They needed recharging after one haircut (although I may have been a bit slow, I guess) and it would be a bit awkward if they ran out when half your head was shaved, but, other than that, would recommend them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Much cheaper than many similar products, 18 Aug. 2013

I was pleased with this - i use it as a headband when I go running and it works well. it is definitely as good quality as similar products (Buff) which cost loads more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Leave your face feeling really clean, 18 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really like these exfoliating wipes. they are great for scrubbing off make up, including waterproof mascara, and don't leave anykind of residue. they are unperfumed, so leave your face feeling almost as fresh as if you'd used proper cleanser and water. I wouldn't use them every day, but they are great for travelling/late nights, etc.

Unlike some waterproof mattress covers, you wouldn't know this one is there. It is not sweaty or slippery or at all rubbery. It is nice quality, fits on easily. would recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars there was only 49 in the box!!, 1 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these for my son who was about to phone consumer protection when he counted them and found there was only 49 in what should have been a box of 50.........made even worse by the fact that he lost a bet with his brother about whether they would be all there..........other than that, the pens are fine. cheap and cheerful and fine for every day use.

4.0 out of 5 stars strong and practical, 1 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
a good quality product, well made (as it should be for the price, as is not cheap) and weather proof. it has holes the bottom, which is useful if you forget to take it in and leave it out in the rain. It is a bit smaller than I would like as you can't actually fit in as many pegs as you would use if you had enough washing to fill one of those rotary driver things, but other than that is fine.
