Promising review: “We love these! This is actually the second set I have bought because my extended family loves them too and has forever “borrowed” our last set. We take these everywhere and they have held up perfectly — in hot tubs, pools, beaches, boats, parks, you name it they have gone. We especially like that whenever we bring them, other folks want to play so it makes sharing a pool or hot tub a more social (read: less awkward) activity. The cards are well constructed and are definitely water proof. They can be submerged because they are made out of a thin plastic.

Promising review: “I have been using these for about two years and let me tell you, they look like the day I bought them! I was using them for school lunches, but now with the stay at home orders, I’ve begun making batches of rice and pasta and freezing those with these bags. They work great and heat up in the microwave beautifully. No damage to the bags at all! I actually ordered some more just to have plenty on hand since I’m using more of them now than in the past. I have tried other brands of reusable storage bags that got pitted and messed up in the microwave. These may cost a little more, but they are almost indestructible and last a long long time! Did I mention you can throw them in dishwasher? Just open the bag and fit it onto the upper rack spikes and they wash up great. I just shake them out and let them air dry. I’m not using plastic bags anymore! Thanks for the great product.” —John S.

Promising review: “I would repurchase this water bottle in a heartbeat, but I don’t know if I’ll ever have to! After two years of daily use, it is still in perfect shape. The double layer of insulation keeps my water cold for hours, and the thick handle won’t break or snap like other water bottles I’ve owned in the past. I love that the design is sleek enough for me to use at work, as well as the pool. If you’re thinking of buying a fancy Hydroflask, stop, this bottle works just as well for half the price!” —vswim94

Now, it’s less than $20 and this’ll should last me way longer than any box of tampons. It’s safe, much more sanitary, and more cost effect way of managing my cycle. Plus, I’ve noticed my cramps have not been as intense as they were while using tampons and I have NO SMELL like I would have if using just tampons or pads!” —Sterling
