Ohuhu 5-Level Storage Organizer/Wardrobe

ScreenHunter_04 Sep. 28 20.53

Ohuhu is quickly making a name for themselves in all manner of products and categories, and their 5-Level “Non-Woven Cloth” storage wardrobe is an ambitious product that could be very useful and come in handy in the right situations.It does fall a little short in some respects and while I still think it’s a decent product, there’s definitely room for improvement.

To start, the “non-woven cloth” (more like paper, really) is really thin and delicate. Because the fit and finish of the metal tubes and connectors is not the absolute finest, you must exercise extreme care when putting the cover over the frame, lest you rip it. Mine came with some damage, but not so damaged that it meant it was useless. The metal framing tubes are a little fragile, and assembly took Hubby, by himself, about 40 minutes, mostly because, again, you have to be gentle with the components and the instructions were, shall we say, lacking.

Individual sections can be a little rickety, and the unit depends on the strength of the entire product assembled as a whole to provide some stability. Once assembled, the unit is not at all flimsy, and does look quite handsome in almost any room. It’s functional for a dorm, or small closetless room, while being large enough for many various items but compact enough that it’s footprint doesn’t take up the entire room. The whole unit is light enough to moved easily by just one person, but I’d advise against moving it with full shelves. The “fabric” shelves also cannot hold a great deal of things, nor very heavy objects either, so be forewarned. At $44.99 (at the time of this writing) I feel it’s a little pricey, considering I don’t see the unit lasting very long, but I still wanted to give this Ohuhu 5-Level Cloth Storage Organizer a 5 star rating.

What stopped me is the overall customer service. As I mentioned before, my cover came with some small cuts and tears from manufacturing and shipping. I tired contacting them through Amazon, and received no response. I tried through Facebook, and after a few days was told to email them directly. I emailed them, and to date have received no response. That’s concerning because there’s multiple reports of shipping damage and thankfully, Amazon stand behind their customers 100%, but it’s disappointing for a company that makes so many wonderful products has such lacking customer service skills. So I had to knock off a star, but the product itself is pretty handy, useful, and practical.

SqueakyCleanCo’s Antibacterial Hand Sanitizer

ScreenHunter_03 Sep. 08 14.17

Some days, cleanliness is next to impossible. Some days, my hands are toast from constant washing and drying. And like some people nowadays, I’m hopelessly addicted to hand sanitizer. Like, I have a bottle in every bathroom, in my purse, in the car, in the bedroom, in the garage. When Squeaky Clean offered me a bottle of their antibacterial had sanitizer to try out, I couldn’t say yes fast enough.

Good sanitizers, at their most basic levels, are pretty much the same: Copious amounts of ethyl alcohol in a glycerin suspension. There’s usually some other things to stabilize it, some fragrance, and maybe a moisturizer to keep our hands from becoming dry, cracked like an old catcher’s mitt. And because alcohol is ridiculously cheap, hand sanitizer is  affordable. I usually pick up Target’s Up & Up brand for about $5 for a 32 ounce bottle. It’s not too fancy, it’s got some weird green color to it, but it also does the job. So here’s where brands like Squeaky Clean start diverging from Purell, Up & Up, and almost every other brand I’ve tried: It’s expensive. A 16 ounce bottle is over $14 on Amazon.com. Yikes! Multiplied out, I’d be spending nearly $30 to get the same amount as what I normally pay $5 for at Target. That makes no sense.

In Squeaky Clean’s defense, their product smells divine, and the aloe and vitamin e left my hands smooth, soft and not at all dried out, plus there’s no added dyes to make it that funky green color as my usual brand. It has 62% ethyl alcohol instead of my usual 70%, so it’s more on par with Purell there too. The box it came in looked very chic and high-end, and the pump reaches to the bottom so you’re not shaking the bottle at end to use the last little bit of it. It’s delightful fragrance stays with you for some time, too. But I don’t know that those pluses are worth more than 3 times the price of leading brands. In fact, I’m sure they’re not. I like the product, it does what it says it’ll do and is what it says it is, but it’s far, far too expensive for me to recommend.
