Dandelion Dish Cloths

Home | Housewares | Dandelion Dish Cloths

These Dandelion Dish Cloths are super nice and Absorbent. In the listing it says they are quick drying and it really is the truth. One towel will dry all your dishes without leaving any streaks or fibers on my dishes. These are really nice. I have used them, washed them and am now doing my review.

 

There are 5 towels in this set. They are a light green with white stripes and a really nice white stitched edge. These are well made. They are 19″ x 15″ and are a Bamboo, Microfiber and Polyester no shrink blend and they didn’t shrink in the dryer. Because they are bamboo they are less likely to have an odor.

 

I knew Bamboo was recyclable and have seemed it made into other cloths before but I honestly never thought I’d own one. It is really silky and soft. Being that these are also Microfiber towels they will probably work very well to clean windows without getting streaks or leaving fabric behind.

 

It is recommended that you never use bleach or fabric softener with these. Also to not iron them or use in water above 60 degrees. Now when drying, because I was unsure, I just dried them on medium heat until they were dry. I think these are great and I was fortunate enough to receive these Dandelion Dish Cloths in exchange for HONEST and UNBIASED review.

 

Rapahan Large Folding Laptop Desk, Aluminum and Beech

Home | Coloring Supplies | Rapahan Large Folding Laptop Desk, Aluminum and Beech

This Rapahan Large Folding Desk is Amazing and has helped me out so much!! I love to color and I get stuck on the couch sometimes because I am disabled. I used to have to sit there on my laptop or watch TV and be content with that but not anymore. I had to find a way to be able to color while stuck there when I came across this.

 

It is made of Aluminum and Beech although the top seems to be more of a veneer surface which is okay. It still looks great and does an excellent job!! It is a perfect coloring desk, serving tray, laptop desk or whatever you need it for. I use it for when I’m stuck on the couch and want to color but also for if I need to eat. I am able to get a full sized coloring book and pack of Gel Pens on it.

 

If you are using it for a Laptop Desk it is plenty big enough for a full sized 18″ laptop with plenty of space for a mouse. At its widest point it is about 23.5″inches W and the legs are over 10″. It comes up very high on me because I’m very short but it is really not a problem for me considering what I am using it for.

 

It is really easy to open and close the legs and the desk itself it super easy to fold up and store. I literally just fold it up and slide it between the couch and coffee table and get it out of the way. Honestly, I could probably slide it under my couch because I have high legs on my couch but I don’t. If you keep the box it comes in, it has a carrying handle on it so it will be simple to take anywhere you go. Although without the box, it is still simple to take.

 

I don’t have a lot of strength on my arms and love the fact that this is lightweight and easy to use. That is one of the reasons I chose it. I was afraid of getting a wooden one and then not being able to fully use when I needed to. I love this one though and it is a great portable table!! I was fortunate enough to receive this Rapahan Large Folding Desk in exchange for my HONEST and UNBIASED review.

 

 

California Home Goods Marshmallow Roasting Forks, Set of 10

Home | Housewares | California Home Goods Marshmallow Roasting Forks, Set of 10

These are Super Nice!! You get 10 Premium Roasting Forks in this Set. I was so happy when I found these that the 1st thing I did was plan something. Finally something big enough to hold not only a Massive Marshmallow but also a Hotdog.

 

It is has 2 prongs so if you don’t want massive marshmallow you can roast 2 regular ones at the same time. If you have a large Family like I do and enjoy time outside Camping, Swimming at the lake or even if it’s just a Fire pit in the backyard, you will need these.

 

We have 5 Children, 3 Grandchildren, My Husband and I. This set was made for us!! The wooden multicolored handles are nice and are comfortable to grip. You don’t have to worry about getting your hands burnt because the handles don’t pick up the heat from the metal.

 

They are also almost 2 foot long so they are safe for younger children to hold and roast their own marshmallows with supervision. There are 2 of each color: Red, Orange, Green, Black and Tan. They came with white safety tips on them but sadly a couple were lost.

 

We will store them in the bag with the rest of our Camping/Grilling items. It is not somewhere the kids go. I was lucky enough to receive these California Home Goods Roasting Forks at a discount in exchange for my HONEST and UNBIASED review.

 

Songmics Foldable Gullwing Drying Rack

Home | Housewares | Songmics Foldable Gullwing Drying Rack

I have a lot of sweaters, scarves, rayon and polyester shirts I don’t dry in the dryer so I set out on a mission to find a drying rack that would fold up for easy storage but still be big enough for my shirts, sweaters and scarves. That is when I came across this Songmic Foldable Gullwing Drying Rack. By the looks of it, I thought this would be the perfect rack for me.

It is absolutely what I wanted and needed!! I am able to fold this up and stash it in my closet until I need it but when I need it, it easily unfolds and holds everything I need it to. I can hang so many shirts, scarves and sweaters on here it’s unbelievable. If I am counting the wrungs I have 18 wrung I can hang shirts on. I don’t count the ones where the clips are that hold it open. I can put scarves there if need. I can also hang them with hangers if I please but I don’t.

Now when it comes to putting it together it was a definite 2 person job and it wasn’t as simple as I wish it were. Mostly it was but putting the wrungs in was a challenge. When I ordered it, I was hoping it came assembled but I honestly didn’t read the reviews as I haven’t read them yet.

Even though we had some kinks in the assembly process I would order this again without any thought to it as it is a very good rack! I also have NO PROBLEM recommending this to others either. I received this Foldable Gullwing Drying Rack in exchange for my HONEST and UNBIASED review.

Songmics Set of 6 Foldable Storage Cubes

Home | Housewares | Songmics Set of 6 Foldable Storage Cubes

These Songmic Foldable Storage Cubes work great for decluttering and making my bookshelf look good. I have grandchildren and sometimes I have toys all over the place. Before I got these I DID have toys all over the place. I just had them in bags and boxes lying around my living room. I knew I had to find a way to take back my living room.

My bookshelf also looked a bit cluttered because of all the downloaded books and stuff I had on them. When I got these 6 storage cubes it solved a lot of my problems. My bookshelves don’t look all cluttered anymore and now all my grandchildren’s toys have homes. Plus it is super easy for them to just come over and pull out a cube by the handle for the toys. Plus they match my decor. They are dark brown just like my couch!

These Songmics Cubes are great in the fact that they are super easy to just fold back up if I don’t need them. The bottom inside has its own piece and that is key to making it sturdy. They are made of Non-woven Fabric and Cardboard and their measurements are 10 1/4″ x 10 1/4″ x 11 1/8″ unfolded. These will fit any standard book shelf, cube shelf or storage. I am really happy with these and I was lucky enough to receive these  Songmic Foldable Storage Cubes in exchange for my HONEST and UNBIASED review.

LunchVault Stainless Steel 17 Ounce Soup Thermos & Food Jar

Home | Housewares | LunchVault Stainless Steel 17 Ounce Soup Thermos & Food Jar

This is a seriously nice Stainless Steel Thermos!! My son takes it to school and has soon or raviolis in it and his food stay hot the entire day. It is also great for hot coffee if you want to take extra.

It is a wide mouthed stainless steel double wall thermos and is perfect for carrying lunch!! I love that it comes with a spoon attached to it and has a built in handle. My son has to be on the bus at 6:30 am and his lunch time isn’t until 12 pm. I think it’s really great that it keeps his food hot that long.

It is a 16 ounce thermos so it will hold a good bit of food. It has an 18/8 Stainless Steel interior and exterior. It is tough and durable. It is completely BPA free and phthalates free. It is leak proof, rust proof and worry free!!

We did follow the suggestions and preheat the thermos before. I don’t know if that really made a difference or not but I do know he said his food was hot when he ate it. He did make the comment that the spoon needs to be longer as it didn’t fit all the way to the bottom of the thermos. I received this LunchVault Stainless Steel Thermos  in exchange for my HONEST and UNBIASED review.

Noosa Life XLarge XThick Insulated Neoprene Lunch Tote

Home | Housewares | Noosa Life XLarge XThick Insulated Neoprene Lunch Tote

I really love this Neoprene Lunch bag. I needed something that would keep my sons food cold for at least 6.5 hrs while his at school. All the other bags that we have really have failed us. Even with the ice blocks his food would be luke warm by the time it was lunch time and he would think it was no good so he wouldn’t eat it. When I found this bag I knew I HAD to get it!!

He is a Sophomore in High School and they can heat their food up which is awesome. He loves taking his lunch now. He is able to take a good sized Tupperware container, plenty of fruit, extra water and even some snacks for throughout the day. I didn’t know a teenager could be happy about a lunch being cold and a bag being so big. I live in the south and it has been really warm here already and it has been really nice knowing I was sending my son to school with a bag that is actually going to keep his food cool.

This Neoprene is stretchy so it allows odd sized containers to fit in because it is so stretchable. It is also thick and insulated which is why it keeps his food so cool!! It has really nice well finished double stitched and a heavy duty zipper. The measurement of the bag is 13″ x 12.5″ x 6.5″. Not only does he have a bag that he can trust but a bag that looks good too. I was fortunate enough to receive this Noosa Life Neoprene Lunch bag in exchange for my HONEST and UNBIASED review.

Premium Duvet Cover Set

Home | Housewares | Premium Duvet Cover Set

I got this Premium Duvet Cover Set and it is really awesome!! I got it in the blue to contrast a blue fitted sheet and a white flat sheet I got because I’m trying to give my 14 year old son who is a Superman fan more of a “grown up” look and still keep in the theme of Superman. He has posters and memorabilia from almost every Superman movie you can think of. His bedroom is covered with it!

This is a Twin/Twin XL Duvet cover. The Measurements of the Duvet Cover are 94″ x 68″ and the Pillow Sham 26″ x 20″. The pillow sham is a normal pillow but the Duvet is a little longer than a normal Twin Comforter but not a whole lot more. It is 1800 count double brushed Microfiber and my son loves it!! He says it is very soft to the touch.

This set is Hypo-allergenic and dust mite repellent which is super important for us. My son has some really sensitive skin and I would hate for him to have a reaction to a Duvet cover. The great is that he HAS NOT!! Dust mites are nasty little creatures and I am very happy when something is resistant to them!!

I love that I can just pop this off and wash it if he spills something or gets some food on it. The care instruction on this is super easy. Just wash and tumble dry. It is Fade resistant which is ALWAYS a plus!! I was fortunate enough to receive this Premium Duvet Cover Set in exchange for my HONEST and UNBIASED review.


SUPER EASY way to get your Duvet Cover On and Off!!

Twin XL Flat Sheet

Home | Housewares | Twin XL Flat Sheet

I got this Twin XL Flat Sheet and it is super nice!! I got it in the white to contrast with the Blue fitted sheet I got because I’m trying to give my 14 year old Superman fan a more “grown up” look and still keep in the theme of Superman. His bedroom is covered with Superman stuff. If you can think of it, he has it. The white will also go with any color we decide to put in his room on or any twin bed in the house.

This is a HIGH Quality Microfiber Flat Sheet!! He says it keeps him cool at night which helps him to sleep. The temperature is always fluctuating here in the south so staying cool is very important!! He also says it is super soft to the touch and I actually walked on him last night and he had a corner of it balled up and he was kind of snuggling it. I thought it was super cute. It is stain resistant which is super important to have to my teenager!!

He has super sensitive skin so it is important for us to have hypoallergenic items in our house. We get that with this Flat sheet!! It is also resistant to Dust Mites. We have to use a special detergent because his skin is so sensitive. When buying this Flat sheet in Twin you get the Twin/Twin XL. It will fit a really long mattress if you have one. Even though it is long it tucks and fits nicely on a regular twin bed.

The stitching on this sheet is very well done!! The care instructions on this sheet are easy but it does say do NOT bleach so you need to keep that in mind. Why that is I do not know but after my son trying it and loving it I have no problem recommending it. I received this Twin XL Flat Sheet in exchange for my HONEST and UNBIASED review.

Bare Home Fitted Sheet

Home | Housewares | Bare Home Fitted Sheet

This Bare Home Fitted Sheet is super nice!! I got it in the blue because my 14 year old is still a huge superman fan and blue is the signature color of superman. His bedroom is covered with Superman posters, character toys, if you can think of it, he has it. The Dark Blue was the perfect color to try to match it and create a more “grown up” look for him.

This really is a HIGH Quality Fitted Sheet!! He says it is super comfortable! We live in the south and the temperature is always fluctuating. He says this sheet helps to keep him cool no matter what the temperature is. It is 100% Ultra Soft Micro-Fiber. That is why!! It is also hypoallergenic which is awesome!! He has actually had reactions to sheets before. He has to use a special detergent because his skin is so sensitive.

This sheet is stain resistant which is also another reason I got it for him. He is a teenager and no matter how hard I try, he is always in his bed with food or a drink. I am tired of buying sheets because he has stained them up. This sheet is truly special because the pocket depth will fit up to 15 inches in mattress height!! You can clearly see in my Video that we have a decent bunk bed mattress and then a 2 inch pillow top on it and there was still plenty of room for more mattress. It will fit a mattress up to 39 by 75 inches which again is a really nice sized mattress. I received this Bare Home Fitted Sheet in exchange for my HONEST and UNBIASED review.

C&A HOME 4 Cube DIY Plastic Storage Bookcase

Home | Housewares | C&A HOME 4 Cube DIY Plastic Storage Bookcase

This C&A Home DIY 4 Cube Bookcase is really neat and simple to put together! It comes with instructions and 11 square flat panels, 5 small rectangular shoe box type panels. It should also have about 18 connectors. All you have to do is snap the connectors onto the exposed metal part of the panel and listen for the click. We had this put together pretty quickly.

For the sake of making it look good when putting it together when you are doing the back panels make sure to put the stitching to the outside so when you’re looking into the bookcase it looks nice. Also make sure the stitching is on the inside on the sides. It does make a difference in the way it looks. I really love that you can build it any way you want it.

These cubes are actually really large. They are 13.8″ x 13.8″ inch cubes and the rectangular ones are 13.8′ x 6.9′ inches. A large storage cube fits into one of the big cubes and I still have room. Large books will easily fit into them. In the smaller ones I use them for storage for my coloring supplies. You can easily fit a shoebox in there.

These are very sturdy. I had my doubts about how strong they would be but after using them I realize how strong they really are. On the bottom since it is on the ground you can put in lots of large books. One thing to keep in mind with these is that you can buy a couple sets and connect them together. I really love that about these!!

These are easy to wipe down and keep clean to. I was fortune enough to receive this C&A Home DIY 4 Cube Bookcase in exchange for my HONEST and UNBIASED review.

I would not suggest slamming it full of stuff but you can put plenty of stuff in one cube. You can build this any way you want.

HLC.ME 2″ thick Hypoallergenic Down Alternative Mattress Topper

Home | Housewares | HLC.ME 2″ thick Hypoallergenic Down Alternative Mattress Topper

My son has a twin size bunk bed and the mattress is so so. I thought it would be nice if I made it a Pillow top for him. He loves plush pillows and down comforters. This HLC.ME 2″ Inch Thick Hypoallergenic Down Alternative Mattress Topper is a really nice way to do that on a budget. I am a Disabled Veteran and can’t afford to buy the expensive mattresses. I am so glad I was able to find this super plush 2 inch plush topper for him. The measurements for the Twin size is 39″ W x 75″ L x 2″ Thick.

It was compressed into a large box when I got it and I thought to myself “how is this going to be plush and helpful?” When I opened the box, pulled it out and fluffed it in the air to put it on the bed it seemed to spring to life. All the sudden you could see how thick and nice it really is. It has a 2 in gusset sidewall and the stitching on the sidewall and around it is really nice. The topper is stitched into baffle boxes to ensure that the fibers stay in place. It definitely seems to be something that will last a good long while.

It has an Ultra-Soft Microfiber Cover which makes it so nice that you could actually sleep on it comfortable and it wouldn’t be rough on your skin at all. I actually took a nap on it after making the video and I have to say, it is probably the closest I will ever get to sleeping on a cloud. It has an extra layer of softness to it which is awesome. I have back issues so I really need a firm mattress but I wanted to try it out also. My son sleeps on it every night and he loves it.

Unlike some toppers it has the elastic bands that hold the HLC.ME mattress topper into place on your mattress. They fit great and are big enough that if you have a thicker mattress they will still stretch and work nicely but that does not mean that they are loose on my mattress. It is quality elastic that will stretch well. I love that it is machine washable and you can actually put this in the Dryer also on a tumble cycle. This makes keeping it fresh, clean and fluffy really easy! My son really loves it. He says it is very comfortable. I received this HLC.ME Down Alternative Mattress Topper in exchange for my HONEST and UNBIASED review.

Otalio Premium Bread Basket – Set of 2

Home | Housewares | Otalio Premium Bread Basket – Set of 2

These Bread Baskets are really nice!! We have a large family of 5 children and 3 grandchildren. When we have family dinners it is sometimes hard to pass around the food. This bread baskets help to minimize that. We can just sit one on each end.

The weave on these are really nice. I really like the dark and light tones. These are pretty durable. We have used them already. They are made of a nice heavy plastic. They are flexible and really easy to clean.

It looks like the frame is made of metal and then wrapped in the plastic which is the dark and light weave. There doesn’t seem to be any rough edges so I think these are safe to use on any surface. I love that they stack inside each other, it makes for easy storing.

When using them I just put a nice cloth napkin in it. It was really cute. You can also just use a paper towel or 2. I received these Otalio Premium Bread Basket in exchange for my HONEST and UNBIASED review.
