Cornucopia Brands: Pack of 2 Clear Glass Bottles, with Sprayers and Labels #Review #CBClearGlassBottles

DSC_0217 (2)

I have always made my own mixtures when it comes to cleaning products, to stain removers, and even weed killers. The one thing that always fails me is not the mixes I create, but the bottles themselves. I have had bottles that constantly drip because the sprayers are cheap. They drip even when not in use to the point they empty and have even damaged a shelf in the garage.  This not only wastes product but also creates another mess I need to clean up. My last bottle had a sprayer that was so cheaply made, that if you filled the bottle to it’s highest level, the sprayer would pop off because the weight was too much. Infuriating!! I love also when companies label them “pro” as in professional and heavy-duty when they could not even spray simple water out successfully.  Most even clog or half-spray after a few uses.

In comes CB (Cornucopia Brands) with a duo pack of crystal clear glass bottles. They also include labels and each bottle comes with a sprayer advertised as heavy duty and with a stream or spray pattern option when used.

Verdict:

I was already familiar with Cornucopia’s Brand of the cobalt blue bottle with sprayer, and I rank it as my number one favorite sprayer from anything I have tried in the past. I have purchased spray bottles from Industrial stores to hardware stores and none are as good in performance and long lasting as the Cornucopia Brands bottles. The clear glass makes it easy to identify what the bottles contain and if you have doubts, the easy stick on labels not only give the bottles an adorable look, but you can write what is in the sprayers, plus the label is large enough if you want to include contents of the mixes you made. These are great for anyone from people who just buy refill solutions, make their own, or just want to transfer contents from ready-made mixtures, but desire a better sprayer. I am 100% satisfied with everything from looks, spray and how they continuously spray without a hiccup. I used one bottle to make my own salt water spray to use for my hair and the other I mixed a weed killer solution of white vinegar, salt and a few squirts of soap. The bottles are clear, so it was easy to know when the mixture of salt had fully dissolved and I could begin spraying. I save money and at the same time get rid of those pesky weeds without harming the surroundings for the animals that visit us like the squirrels, raccoon and birds. It’s a win-win product in my book!

Cornucopia Brands: Refillable Cobalt Glass 16oz Spray Bottle with Heavy Duty Sprayer #Review #CBCobaltSprayBottle

I have always made my own mixtures when it comes to cleaning products, to stain removers, and even weed killers. The one thing that always fails me is not the potions I create, but the bottles. I have had bottles that constantly drip because the sprayers are cheap (in material not price tag). This not only wastes product but also creates another mess I need to clean up. My last bottle had a sprayer that was so cheaply made, that if you filled the bottle to it’s highest level, the sprayer would pop off because the weight was too much. Infuriating!! I love also when companies label them “pro” as in professional and heavy-duty when they could not even spray simple water out successfully.

In comes CB (Cornucopia Brands) with not only a gorgeous cobalt blue colored bottle, but with a sprayer advertised as heavy duty and with a stream or spray pattern option when used.

Retail Price Point: $8.99 and free shipping with Prime membership via Amazon

Verdict:

I did not know where to land when it came to my expectations. The bottles in the past and my experience with them tended to make me well, not trust I could find a bottle that worked effectively. The bottles from Cornucopia Brands are made of a heavy glass material with a dye within the glass (not just a coloring that rubs off on the surface).  The glass is thick but not ultra heavy in weight. They are sturdy! Visually, they look stunning and I will admit I like using and looking at the pretty blue color (it matches some of the blue in our granite). Okay, but in the end how it works is all that matters to me! The glass is UV resistant, so any chemicals or solutions you make will not lose their effectiveness if they are light sensitive. I add simple window cleaner that has a vinegar base, and fill the bottle to the top. I flip the bottle upside-down, no leaks or dribbles. I then start cleaning because I know if this bottle accidentally tips on the carpet, it’s not going to create puddles. I spray and the spray is fine but controlled. It distributes a spray pattern that has a nice circumference, meaning you don’t have a wild spray where you target one area and a few squirts always make it outside where you wanted to spray. I also notice that the bottle has a decent weight at all times and no time does the bottle fall forward when it starts to empty and stays with an even distribution in weight (no tipping). No needing to catch the 1/4 empty bottle that wobbles or falls every time you but something back in the cabinet. I really appreciate that and I have been using the bottle for now 3 weeks in a row, every day and love the sprayer more with time. Why? Because it works. It’s that simple because in the end I need this sprayer to work without funny quirks and this glass bottle does every single time!

Mysonder Plastic 24″ Level Review

mysonder

When it comes to keeping things “on the level” in this house, eyeballing it wont do. What with my projects, pictures, mirrors, and even our range, needing to be straight, we turn to levels of all shapes and sizes. 6 inch, 1 foot, 5 foot…you name it, we thought we had it. Then Mysonder offered us a 24″ level to try out. Talk about not knowing what you need until you’ve got it!

Where a 5 foot level is overkill but a 6″ one won’t quite cut it, the 24″ Mysonder jumps right in and says “No worries, I got this!” Made of lightweight injection molded plastic in the most popular “I-beam” construction, it’s durable without being heavy, drop resistant without worrying about cracking tiles, and perfect for in-home small tasks, like laying a few tiles in an entry way, hanging a new accent mirror, or even, as I mentioned, leveling our oven. Why would that be necessary, you ask? Well, our new KitchenAid range has an “AquaClean” feature where you put a small amount of water in the pan at the bottom and cook the grime and grease away! Buuuut…it must be level to clean properly and not spill. So my Mysonder level can in very handy here, as out 5 ft. level would have just rested on either side of the counter, and our 6″ level would have not given us a true reading of the entire range.

My (admittedly minor) issues are that Amazon sells a competitor’s product, made of a more durable powder coated aluminum, for 4 dollars less. Anyone who has used levels knows there is flex in plastic. It’s minuscule, but it’s there. No such problem with aluminum. Also, the finish of the product is a little sloppy, especially where the plastic was punched for the level bubbles. You could do much worse for $12.99, but with careful shopping, you could do better too, it seems. So it’s up to you if you feel like lightweight plastic, the Mysonder is perfectly adequate for almost everyone.
