Ohuhu’s Hardwood 12-Belt Hanging Organizer

ScreenHunter_04 Sep. 28 20.53

Ohuhu has a lot of products that spans many different categories, and I’ve been very fortunate to try out quite a few. And while I appreciate the high dollar, high value products they sometimes send, what I’ve found to be the most useful and clever are the ones that I might have overlooked or just passed right by, like this Ohuhu Hardwood belt hanger.

I don’t have a lot of belts, and I don’t own many scarves because it’s California, and even when it’s the dead of winter, we get 90 degree days. So on it’s surface you might find yourself wondering what possible use I could have for this belt hanger? It does do perfectly adequate for my few scarves as well as my and Hubby’s belt, even if his big, thick leather belt and big steel buckle made everything completely list to one side. Plus, this hanger tended to “grab” things that were hung in close proximity, and after a couple of days came out of the closet. Sitting there on the edge of the bed, looking all sad and unused. Well, when I saw it just lying there, it flashed through my head: Laundry hanger!!! See, I have quite a few unmentionables that need air drying. And lining all the door jambs in our house with hangers to hang my lingerie is just gauche. But this little guy? Boom, 12 bras or undies hung perfectly spaced out, with no sharp edges to snag things, and rust-resistant rounded polished hooks ready to hang under the nearest ceiling vent. What sometimes took me days had my stuff dry in hours. I’m in love! It’s also made of solid, strong hardwood, so it will last, and last, and last. The top hook will fit easily into any closet hanger, and even turns so that it can be hung just about anywhere!

Look, maybe this isn’t what the Ohuhu Hardwood Belt Hanger was intended for. Maybe my habit of re-purposing things had finally gone around the bend. I don’t care, because I have this dream of a laundry hanger that makes air drying my delicates a breeze, and I regret nothing. I love my Ohuhu Hardwood Belt Hanger, and I think you’d be surprised just how useful a thing it can be for you too!

Wizzhome’s Creative Scents Fabric Storage Bin w/Faux Leather Accents

Once again, Wizzhome brings the goods with their home storage solutions. This time, though, it’s their herringbone-fabric covered shelf storage bin with faux leather accents and trim. I tell you, I’m loving these awesome and beautiful storage solutions from their Creative Scents line.

DSC_0031

This “leather: handled bin measures 8 inches high by 9.75 inches wide by 13.75 inches deep and provides plenty of storage space for everyday items you always find yourself reaching for. With a smooth cloth bottom, it glides easily in and out of shelves, all the while looking stylish and handsome doing it. Made from a thick cardboard that then has a grey herringbone fabric bonded to it, that alone would have made it look pretty snazzy. But Wizzhome turned the style factor up to 11 by adding black faux-leather handles and accent trim, with a contrast stitching so it really pops on any shelf, counter, closet or floor. Whether you want to store you winter slipper socks, some scented pinecones in a high traffic hallway, or some magazines by your favorite cozy chair, this little storage box is right at home anywhere!

It also makes a great gift idea, and you could even stuff it with little doo-dads, snacks or knick-knacks to really make it a gift they’ll never forget. Priced at $21.90 on Amazon with free Prime shipping, I’d like to see it closer to the $19.99 price point for this size. Because while it’s sturdy and attractive, filling a couple of shelves with these will get very pricey very fast. But other than that, this is a little dream of a storage bin, one you’ll be happy to leave out for all to see.

Wizzhome’s Creative Scents 3 Piece Storage Box Set

 

I love being able to store away seasonal things when not in use, be they summer’s bikinis, fall’s fuzzy sweaters, or winter’s slipper socks. It’s like refreshing your wardrobe every few months. But sometimes just putting them on a shelf in the closet, or shoved in the back of a drawer isn’t kosher. So when the opportunity arose to try out more of Wizzhome’s fabulous storage solutions, you bet I was all over them!

DSC_0209

And this Creative Scent’s 3 piece set is just the bee’s knees. Much larger than the last set I tried, sturdier, and this time, with lids! So now they don’t just look super, and function super, they’re stackable! No more tumbling piles of clothes from the top shelf of the closet, no more dusty, musty clothes that need to be “aired out” before wearing. Although I will advise airing out these boxes before use or storage, because as others have noted, there is a strong “chemical” smell when these boxes are new. Nothing a little time and a cedar block won’t correct though. Another issue I had is that my shipment was damaged by UPS (something they really seem to specialize in!). That makes 2 of 2 packages from Wizzhome that UPS damaged, this time rendering the largest box unuseable. Thankfully, Wizzhome sent out a replacement poste haste and I had it in a few days time. With three sizes, including a large box measuring 6″high x 16″ wide x 11″ deep, a medium one measuring 5.75″ high x 14.75″ wide x 9.75″ deep and small-sized box measuring 5″ high x 13.75″ wide x 8.5″ deep, this set has storage solutions for days! In fact, they’re so nice looking it’s almost a shame to hide them away in a closet!DSC_0210

My one nit to pick is the price. at nearly $60, one would expect something a little sturdier that fabric-covered cardboard. That makes a drawback of displaying them that incidental bumps by feet, knees or even a vacuum could do considerable damage. It also means that if you slightly overfill them, there’s very little tensile strength to the sides and they will bow out. But the faux-leather lids are a breeze to dust or wipe down, and the herringbone design of the fabric will go with any decor.

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.

DSC_0200

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.

WizzHome’s Creative Scents 3-Piece Foldable Storage Organizers

Sometimes, things can get cluttered, disorganized, and just…out of place. And sometimes, that will drive right up a wall. I hate mess, clutter, piles of stuff with no home. So when I got a chance to try out WizzHome’s Creative Scents 3-piece foldable storage organizers, I was over the moon! To start, as I mentioned, they fold down flat so when your temporary madness of mess has subsided, these can be folded away and stored almost anywhere! The are a nice, durable woven fabric (I chose the tan “Sand Dune” color, but there’s also a “Gray Birch” as well), with strong cardboard sealed inside that holds the shape but will also flex just a little. I even stuck some little non-skid feets on the bottom of the smallest one, because he’s now a permanent fixture on the dresser. They’re that good looking!

DSC_0002

You get three sizes, large (9″ x 12″ x 4″), medium (6″ x 12″ x 4″), and small (4″ x 12″ x 4″). The large container will fit a few small shirts folded nicely, the medium is perfect for face and hair care accessories, and the small one is good for keys, a wallet, or whatever junk you’ve accumulated in your pocket throughout the day. Sure beats throwing that stuff on a dresser or endtable, right?

DSC_0003

If I had a single gripe, it’s that they’re somewhat small for the price. you can find similar or larger storage containers of this type for less on Amazon (and probably elsewhere). So for $24.99 (at the time of this writing), it’s a little pricey. I would have also liked to see some kind of handle or loop on the sides, but that’s a personal preference and not a complaint.

DSC_0004

Overall, I liked these very much, and despite UPS’s best efforts to destroy them, they arrived mostly intact and have all been put to good use. Even so, WizzHome offers a “Lifetime Guarantee” so if they should start to come apart thanks to UPS’s rough handling, I feel confident WizzHome has my back. I recommend these WizzHome Creative Scents Foldable Storage Containers, and I hope they find a place in your home too!
