Absolutely love these bath mats
PostedJune 5, 2010
I have had 2 of these bath mats for nearly 3 years now. They have been through 2 moves with us. They do get a little dirty/stained but that is more to do with the fact that the bathroom is basically a mud room for a now 3 year old boy. We bought these due to our cats urinating on our regular bath mats, the cats have never urinated on these bath mats. We have had no real problems with these mats and my mother in law was even impressed with them enough that she bought them for her house too, also due to the cat problems, and she loves them.

great on a cold day
PostedFebruary 23, 2010
I bought these to use when it is cold out so that I can do my yoga without freezing my little feet off. They work great. I have been using them with my Wii Fit and they are great for giving you a little extra grip on the board.

Best compost crock I've seen
PostedNovember 25, 2009
I love this "little" compost crock. It is small enough to fit easily on my kitchen counter yet it is significantly larger than the ones the stores near us sell. The size is such that I don't need to run out to the compost bin in the yard after every meal to empty it and the filter has done an excellent job at containing the odors, also something the ones at the stores near us did not feature. All in all this product far exceeded my expectations.

We put this in on our kitchen sink to help us minimize wasted water. It is a really nice and handy addition to our kitchen sink. You can adjust the style of the spray to suit your needs and then you can very easily adjust the speed at which the water flows out with the flow restrictor. We are very pleased with this purchase, especially since it was such a cheap item. We honestly weren't expecting something so great for this price. I love it so much I thought about getting them for all of my family members as a holiday gift this year.

Almost perfect
PostedNovember 25, 2009
We got 2 sets of these panels in the natural color for our bedroom. The only problem we had is that they are not quite wide enough to cover the entire sliding door, they come pretty close but not quite wide enough since they are in our bedroom. We simply added a 3rd pair and added 1 extra panel to each the widow and the sliding door (the window is almost as wide as our sliding door).
They are exactly what we were hoping for. We love the antiqued brass color of the grommets and the fact that the drapes block others from seeing into our room, but still let enough light in the room in the morning to help us gently wake up.

A luxurious alternative to down bedding
 

is this comprable to silk comforter?

I used to own a silk comforter that I bought from you many years ago and my husband and I loved it so very much but after about 9 years (with a baby/kid and 2 cats) it was definitely past time to get rid of it. I finally got rid of it when we moved to a warmer climate but it still gets cold enough that we need something, I bought a down alternative elsewhere for the time being but we aren't thrilled with it. Anyhow, I am really looking for something comprable to the silk comforter you used to sell and wondered if this might be it as I see it keeps you warm but people say doesn't overheat you? The silk one was great cause until it got really cold it was just right on cold or hot nights, desperately looking for the same lightweight style comforter that won't overheat us on warmer nights but will keep us warm on colder nights. We live in Central Florida just off the ocean and river so we definitely get breezes and winds, etc. Thanks.

Does the Cork Bath Mat mold?

It seems from the reviews that sometimes the mats mold underneath.

I have not had any mold or mildew issues yet in my nearly 3 years with 2 of these mats. I use the AC and heat sparingly and prefer to have windows open in my So. Cal home. That being said I only had a window in my bathroom for about 1 of the 3 years. I am not sure what causes the mold and mildew issues that others have had or what it is that prevents me from having those issues.

Is the cork bath mat bendable to dry on a towel bar?

Top 250 Contributor
Top 250 Contributor
No, the mat is not bendable to dry on a towel bar. I simply prop it up against the bathtub periodically, but I honestly haven't had any mold or mildew problems and I hardly ever prop it up to dry (except when I prop it up to clean my bathroom floors).

Does the cork mat contain anything other than cork (such as adhesives or finishes)?

Top 250 Contributor

No, the mat is pure cork. No adhesives, no finishes, just all natural cork.

Do these curtains block light?

Since they are insulated I'm thinking perhaps they can be considered completely light blocking as well.
Top 250 Contributor

The natural ones definitely do not block out all light, but rather filter the light and prevent glare. If you are trying to block out all light you would probably do better to find a blackout drape or shade. Blackout drapes and shades aren't the easiest thing to find, but they are definitely out there. We had some in our son's nursery when he was little because his room got an extreme amount of sunlight.
