The Drops / Toilet Odor Drops

The Drops / Toilet Odor Drops
Does it work? Does something

A little outside the normal "as seen on tv" products, but I couldn't resist. These will be on the tv in no time.

The toilet drops I tried were lavender scent, but it comes in other generic scents such as mint and lemon. The scent is a little like the air fresheners in cars. (The little pine tree ones) It's hard to tell if it really works, since the user typically gets use to the scent. It definitely creates a strong scent, but not as strong as Lysol or other air freshers. In summary, it couldn't hurt.

Further testing to be done...

Underbed Shoe Organizer

Does it work? Wow, the quality!

It a good idea, shoes underneath the bed is a good place to store shoes. However, this is not the product to accompleish the task. The quality unfortately is dismal. The zippers separte from the sides and the top; the box material itself is paper thin and very flimy. The cardbaord separators do not fit within the frame.

The good news here is that Rubbermaid makes a perfectly good product. Search amazon for Rubbermaid low-profile storage box.

Aqua Globes

Does it work? Yes

Happy to report, no real caveats here. The glass bulbs work as advertised, gently watering the plants for 8-14 days at a time. The only problem I could think of is they would be become clogged with soil on occasion. They are easy enough to refill. If you don't mind the look of them, I believe they are a winner.
