Seemed to be reasonable quality, but not sure how long the coating would last.

I returned mine, as they were too small to cover the hole on my B&Q kitchen sink. My fault for not measuring, but something to be wary of.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant quality, and proper brass, 8 Aug. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant quality, and proper brass, for pretty much the same price as some of the plastic stuff on here (where the chrome always flakes off in next to no time).

This is a decent sized blank. Matches the size of the one I got with a Cooke & Lewis (B&Q) kitchen sink.

This review is from: EZ Detail Brush Large
Was recommended this for the model of wheel I had (OEM Audi 19" double spokes). Whilst it is great for getting the main 'barrel' of the inside of the wheel, i've found it pretty useless for the spokes and flat faces of the wheel.

The bristles are too soft to get rid of brake dust easily (even when using decent chemicals like Bilberry, etc.), so need to use either a different brush or a wet cloth as well. Also, because the bristles are so soft, you end up getting sprayed in dirt from it being sprung back into your face when pulling the brush back out from behind spokes. And I do mean covered!

I'm sure this would be ideal for thin multispoke wheels, but certainly much better choices out there for wheels with flatter faces.

Don't think I will continue to use this much.

3.0 out of 5 stars Poor audio quality for both hearing and speaking. Sent back to Amazon., 8 Aug. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this recently to use on work conference calls.

I found the sound to be very muffled. I was also told on a number of occasions that I could not be heard clearly. Skype also flagged up a warning to say "Your device is resulting in poor audio quality."

Sent back to Amazon, and i'll be looking at a more capable item.

3.0 out of 5 stars Smells really nice, but doesn't last. Also no odour removing ability., 20 July 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Smells nice, but it doesn't remove any odours. The smell also doesn't last at all. Spray all fabric surface of your car in the evening, and you won't have any hint of cherry smell when you get in the car the following morning.

Also noticed that this leaves a very stick residue if you get it on glass/plastics, so make sure you wipe it off asap.

Bit of a disappointment for a Poorboys product. I'm a big fan of their glazes and waxes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Didn't remove tobacco odour from car, 17 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Clobberizer - Car & Van Deodoriser
Unfortunately did not get rid of the lingering tobacco smell in our car. Masked the smell for a few days, then when the sun came out, the smell reappeared as badly as before. Gave it a full 24 hours and recirced the climate control for 30 mins too. And the car is only a hatchback.

Prior to trying Clobberizer, we have had two professional interior valets (all interior surfaces and air vents cleaned, carpet wet vac and head lining done using enzyme odour removers), multiple ozone shock treatments, Meguiars odour remover, Bio-brisk odour remover and a similar product to Clobberizer, which is no longer available (although was far more effective, masking the smell for 3-4 months).

Time to get the car crushed I think!

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice budget sink and tap, poor fittings kit - Tap fittings leak!, 27 Mar. 2016
Updated a year later - I've dropped my review to 3 stars, as the tap ended up leaking badly due to poorly fabricated threads on the pipes. The plumber who went round to sort it for the 3rd time said he would throw the tap in the bin if it leaked again. Also, the plastic chrome effect blanking plug (that goes over the hole on the side you don't fit the tap) has flaked really badly, making the whole sink look cheap and nasty.

Original review:
Fitted this over the weekend for my mum. Quality of the sink appears to be good, although it does look like it might be prone to scratching more easily than a higher quality sink.

Waste pipes which came with it went straight in the bin as they weren't adjustable enough to allow fitment with the waste pipe, I used a McAlpine waste set instead.

Only real complaint is the clips which came with it to hold it down to the worktop, they were absolute rubbish! More expensive sinks come with clips which have to be snapped into place, these things just hang there, then all fall off when you try to put the sink in place. I even tried crimping them into the sink with pliers, but that still didn't help. Ended up having to ditch the clips and the foam gasket, then using a decent bead of silicone all round, putting heavy toolbox on top and filling the sinks with water to press it down for a few hours whilst the silicone set.

Tap appears to be good, although I was a bit puzzled about the handle being able to spin around the tap. Not sure if that is intentional or not!

Bought this after a recommendation on Detailing World years ago, and never looked back. Have bought three of these now because it works really well and only needs water as lube.

Bought this after being recommended on Detailing World. Beads very well and lasted over two months over winter before I needed to reapply.

Also very easy to apply once you've given it a good shake.

2.0 out of 5 stars Didn't last very long. Junk!, 16 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Was quite useful for the few hours it worked, but it started to go flaky very quickly. Suspect there is a loose connection.
