  • The package comes with 6 jumbo-sized storage bags.
  • Each bag can hold 4 pillows or one queen-size bedding set.
  • The hand pump is included.

Promising review: These storage bags are brilliant! I was really stuck for space for my seasonal clothes. I bought the 5-pack in large. I thought I wouldn’t have enough bags. But in the end, I had 2 bags left over and a lot more space in my wardrobe.
There is even a travel pump included for people on the go. I would definitely recommend these bags. It’s a brilliant idea and easy to use. @Cath

2. This cord organizer is like a traffic cop for your kitchen, directing cords where they need to go and keeping everything moving smoothly.

Promising review: This product is a game-changer! No more cords from toasters, blenders, mixers, etc. dangling all over. Everything is neat and tidy, and appliances don’t get all tangled up when I bring them out of the cupboards. I love it, and so far, the adhesive has been strong. @Justin

Promising review: I bought this item in August 2022. It was doing its job in minutes. It took 8 minutes to defrost frozen meat and 5 minutes to defrost frozen curry; if it was too icy, it took 10 to 12 minutes to defrost without changing color, taste, or texture. I suggest it as a good product to keep in the kitchen. @GG

It stays put and catches the hair as advertised! It comes in a package of 25, so it’s a great value! I highly recommend this product. @Teepee
