    "I tried them first on my favourite black boots that I wear daily. They had started to smell a little musty, and the odour was beginning to transfer onto my socks. Overnight, the smell had completely disappeared, leaving only a leather scent behind. To say I was shook is an understatement.

    I then tried them on another three-year-old pair of flats that had not been smelling the best since, well, three years ago. After one day, it no longer smelled like anything. And keep in mind that I’m using the same pair of bags back to back!" — Yi Yang

    "When I spotted the TubShroom during some late-night perusing on Amazon, I ordered it. It’s so simple to install. All you do is pop it in the shower tub drain and you’re good to go. There aren’t any straggler hairs hanging around the drain anymore. All the hair is collected out of view as well, and it only takes two seconds to clean. Just remove the hair with a piece of toilet paper and toss it in the garbage. LATER, GROSS HAIR CLUMP! LOSE MY NUMBER!" —Sarah Aspler
