    "This chart is an absolute clothes-saver. I can't count the number of times my husband has spilled something on his clothes that I don't know how to get out. But this chart has everything you can possibly imagine spilling on yourself. It has saved quite a few shirts and will probably save dozens more. "

    "The video is a little too fast-paced. I think it contains too many "hacks" for a single video. If I'm looking to remove coffee stains, then I would search for a video about coffee stains. I would never search for or watch this video."

    "I am a great fan of 5-minute craft. They give very valuable suggestions for the most common day to day problems. I have implemented one of their solutions in my kitchen cabinets which was not closing perfectly and am happy with the no-cost solution. If i had gone to handyman, am sure would have spent hundreds of dollars"

    "Uggh. I hate these kind of articles. 97% of the page is ads and you have to keep pushing the "Next" button to get to the next paragraph of the article. 10 of them actually, and they all take forever to load and then you have to close a bunch of huge pop-ups. I just want to know how to get red wine off a white shirt... 15 minutes later... hmm. Cream of tartar and lemon juice. I don't have either of those things. What a waste of time. No thanks."
