Review Summary

The Household Essentials 80-Pocket Hanging Jewelry is made of durable vinyl construction with metal hanger option that keeps all fine jewelry or accessories protected and within hand reach. This hanging organizer features transparent 40 pockets on both sides, and the soft, clear PEVA protects the accessories from nicks and scratches. The organizer has smaller pockets on the top to hold small and light weight items like earrings or clips, and larger pockets at the bottom can hold little big or slightly heavy items like necklaces, hand mirrors, hair accessories etc. One side of the organizer also has horizontal pockets which can easily accommodate items like sunglasses, watches etc. With a built-in hanger and sleek looks, this organizer can easily slip into any closet or can be hung on any door or clothes hook as per choice. However, this handy organizer is not very durable if loaded with heavy or bulky items. It is necessary to balance weight with items otherwise the average quality hanger material snaps and slips off easily. It is observed that the organizer’s hook/hanger part can sag due to its limited strength and the plastic cover of the pockets rips off easily if stuffed with bulky items.

Review Summary

The Brita Slim Water Filter Pitcher with a capacity of 40 ounces is a smart and sleek filter suitable for small households and dorms rooms as it is easy to store and portable. An advanced sponge-like Ion Exchange Resin Filter system acts as a magnet for impurities found in tap water and keeps the water free from harmful chemicals such as lead, copper, mercury, zinc, cadmium or even chlorine taste. All Brita Pitchers are universally compatible with Brita Pitcher Replacement Filters. Brita’s Water Filters not only provide clean and germ free drinking water for good health, but also help the environment by reducing the need of bottled water. All Brita products are BPA-free and recyclable through a Brita and Preserve filter recycling program.

It is advisable to soak the filter for 15 minutes before using it, and this natural process of carbon emitting can be eliminated or avoided from appearing in the bottom drinking water section by placing the filter correctly.
