    Promising review: “This is the rolling shelf I should have ordered the first time. It’s excellent. Even with heavy laundry detergent bottles, it barely wobbles. The snap together plastic is surprisingly sturdy. My previous purchase was a flimsy metal wire design and it tipped over immediately and felt like it was going to buckle when I held it upright.” —Los Angeles Dogs

    Promising review: "Hands-down the best purchase we may have made this year. While on vacation earlier last year we came down with the flu. It settled in our lungs and as we developed the dreaded dry honking cough. So why should you dish out this much money right now? We were sick for a month, but after letting this guy run for a full 24 hours, we were no longer sick or coughing whatsoever. The house felt like, clean, and I could breathe again.

    I can't believe I never had one of these before. I feel gross for not having one before. I feel like a full grown adult who just found out that not washing their hands leads to the spread of germs and makes people sick. If anyone in your house has allergies, asthma, pets, or is currently sick or coughing, then buy this right now. Like right this very moment! Everyone else, please just buy it as a courtesy to those who have to enter your home at some point. Or don't buy it and live a short disease ridden filthy life, you pig. its up to you." —Kate Taylor

I love that you can set it for a relative amount of time and forget about it, it extinguishes itself after setting relative time!

I love the look and functionality of these!! it looks great on any counter and everyone always asks about it." —Cougar Paw

    The surge protector

    Promising review: "Just got this and so far so good. I love that I can choose whether each plug is front-facing or turned to the side. It makes for great cord management. I also love that the design uses the TOP plug on the outlet. So many I found use the bottom plug and all those reviewers complain that the weight of the adapters/cords pull the thing out of the wall. Finally, I like the versatility of being able to screw it into the outlet center point if you need the additional stability, but also that you don't have to do that if you want something more easily removable." —Susan B.
