A few weeks ago, GoneReading.com offered me a product to review from their site and I was instantly excited. I was familiar with their site (I’ve tweeted about them before) and knew that whatever I got, I would love. When they let me pick out my own product, I knew instantly that I wanted this Bamboo Bathtub Caddy. I don’t currently have one and, to be honest, so many of them are cheap and don’t work well, but I had a good feeling about this one.
I was right and it’s amazing. Here are my favorite features:
- It feels like good quality. The wood is smooth, it’s heavy enough to be durable but not enough to be clunky. It has just enough weight to it so I won’t accidentally flip it over if I touch it (unlike many of the plastic products).
- The wine holder on the right is great, but the “soap dish” on the left is also the perfect size for a coffee mug (and I love my coffee). If you do put soap in it, it has a hole in the bottom for the water to go through.
- The bookstand folds into the caddy, but when you have it up to lean your book on it, you have three places to prop the book up on the bottom, meaning you can angle the book however you want.
- The legs are expandable and not preset, so whatever size your tub, it’ll fit. This is awesome because the lip on the inside of my tub is about 1/3 the size of the other side and the extendable legs let me center the caddy without being stuck with “notches” so it’s more stable.
Final verdict: I love it and I’m not saying that because I got it for free (although that is nice, too). I tend to take the Goldilocks approach to bathtub products and want them just right, but most caddy’s are either too cheap or too cumbersome. This one is just right. If you’re one to read in the tub (or just drink wine), then definitely grab yourself one of these.
