Household Essentials 4516 MightyStor Hanging Garment Vacuum Storage Bag : Not a perfect fit

Having used name brand ‘space bags’ in the past, this item was underwhelming. Easy enough to use, large enough to fit many garments. Unfortunately the next morning my bag clearly had air and was no longer sealed like it had been when i put it away the day before. I tried again, made sure the seal was solid and call tightened. Low and behold i had the same issues. Hopefully it will keep our dressy clothes nice and prevent the ‘stale’ smell i am trying to avoid – only time will tell.

Bought these to store blankets and other winter stuff in the closet. I love the shape these make when vacuum sealed, since it’s easy to store on the floor of the closet. I did accidently rip one while storing, so it’s important to be careful, since they’re very easy to poke a hole in, and not very durable. I had to hide the remaining other cube in a suitcase to protect it from being damaged. Had that first bag not ripped as easily, i would probably give this more stars, but the one working bag has been sealed for many months now (in my luggage) without any issues. I would recommend these bags over others because of the shape that it turns into once sealed up. Other bags become long and flat, which is clunky to store, but with those other bags, i haven’t had a problem with them ripping.

I had trouble keeping the air in these bags at the first 2 tries and thought they were useless. However, on the third try, i was able to keep the air out and bag remains airless. Apparently, i was not closing the seal properly. I will say i like the ziplock jumbo bags better. They fill easier, are cheaper, and one does not have to turn the seal to open and close.

I bought two space saver storage totes because i know how much space they save. I live in a tiny apartment and space is a precious commodity. Having my winter clothes and blankets all stowed away makes life much less stressful. I have been very pleased with this provider and this product. I do use an old sheet as a dust cover in storage, however, because i learned that the outside tote material will deteriorate pretty quickly if left exposed to light and dust.

While they work well the large is not very large and the extra large is to large. I crochet afghans and wanted something to shrink them down when i ship them (queen and king sized). I can not get the ‘zipper’ to close on the large with only one afghan and the extra large i had to fold to get it to vacuum seal correctly. Since i am using it for a specific purpose i am only giving them 4 stars. Now i wish i could find boxes to put them in to wrap, wish sears or jc penney’s still had bathrobe boxes.

Household Essentials 4516 MightyStor Hanging Garment Vacuum Storage Bag for Dresses – X-Large : Your product saved the day during a recent home construction project. It was a messy time in our home; we had floor tile removed throughout our home and ran out of airtight containers. The promised delivery date worked out great with our schedule as well.

I use this without vacuuming the air out just to keep moths away from a wool and linen costume, zip it up and moths can’t get in, just be sure your clothing is free of moths/eggs before you seal it up, zipper is a little stiff and difficult to use – may have to slide back and forth a few times to make sure it is sealed.

I wish i had read more of the reviews before ordering these. Seemed like a great buy but when i received them and tried to get the air out it was very tedious to do. As stated in a previous review, if your vacuum hose is set to use other attachments and not perfectly round, it will be difficult to fit over the hole and get the air out. It took way too much time and effort. I gave up and just kept it with the remaining air. I’ll order a different set later.

Unlike spacebags, these actually hold their seal. I’ve had two in use for a few months now with no-to-negligible leaking. Avoid using drycleaner hangers and opt for plastic to be sure to avoid any unwanted breaks or hole once you vacuum them tight. I worried i overloaded one of the hangers, but these are surprisingly strong. Still, be careful how many garments you hang off the hanger inside. It’s so nice when something works as advertised.

I buy often online but seldom take the time to write a review. I made an exception here because i was so thrilled with these storage cubes. It’s time to put away the patio furniture here in new england. I have six dining chairs for a total of twelve cushions. And a six foot long glider with six cushions. That’s eighteen in all to store. I had bought extra large ziploc bags at walmart but could only get two cushions in a bag. I was able to put all eighteen in four of these cubes.

I purchased this (extra large dress size) in the hopes of reducing the storage space required for my wife’s wedding dress. Her dress previously took up nearly half of a closet. I folded it and placed it in the vacuum seal bag, sucked the air out with my household vacuum, and immediately the dress and bag were less than 2 inches thickthis is a quality product.The main bag is thick and doesn’t seem like it will tear or rip easily. The seals seem great (both the zipper lock side seal which runs he entire length and main vacuum seal). The main vacuum seal has a locking mechanism which is a nice feature. I would purchase these again in a second. I’m already looking at additional sizes for other storage needs.

This fit around my daughter’s infant carrier so we can store up in the garage without having to worry about critters or mold getting into the seat. I’m so happy i found this big enough for what i wanted.

There are some products that i never heard of until recently and wonder how did i live without?. I have blankets stored in these, allowing me to store enough in my closet for the hordes of relatives who visit at holidays. Easy to use – attach your vacuum and in a few seconds the package has shrunk to half or less its original size.

I had a very elaborate wedding dress that took up a lot of room in my closet. This space saving bag worked like magic. The quality is great and it was very easy to use. I would recommend to anyone wanting to store a long item, like a wedding dress.

Just used one of these to pack up my insulated camo bib and parka hunting outer wear. More than enough room for the two items in the one bag, left space between them in the middle that allowed me to fold over for putting on storage shelf. Threw a couple of pieces of aromatic cedar in prior to sealing and all safe and soundused small shop vac to evacuate which went very quickly. Sealing was very easy with plastic slider.

This does exactly what it’s supposed to do. It was easy to use, and the materials seem fairly sturdy. The xl size was perfect for storing multiple bulky winter coats, or several heavy blankets. So far no rips, tears or punctures, and it’s holding its seal well.Only complaint is that sometimes zipping it was a little tricky as the slider liked to come off – but, that’s not that big of a deal for me.

Fold up your thick queen sized comforter in threes. Stuff it in the bag and apply vacuum. Bag is a little over one inch in thickness as a result.

Perfect for packing all your stuff into a suit case. I was a bit skeptical when i saw that it didn’t require a vacuum hose, but the bags really shrink down to size. Removing the air from the bags does take a bit of effort and maneuvering, however isn’t too difficult. I wouldn’t get this for someone who has frail hands or could possibly have a difficult time removing the air from the bag.

I am extremely happy with my purchase of this storage bag. I have used it to store my wedding gown for the past two years and i have had no problems with leaks.

I used one of the large household essentials 4-piece mightystor vacuum storage travel bags, 2 medium/2 large on a camping trip and it saved my life. Ok maybe it didn’t save my life, but it kept my clothes dry through a torrential downpour and compressed them, allowing me to fit more stuff in my pack. (i wasn’t concerned about pack weight for this trip. )i did not receive any discount or perks from the manufacturer/dealer for this review.

I read the reviews and stopped myself from buying these twice, i have ordered 4 boxes now. All i have to say is read the instructions and don’t over stuff the bags and you will also be writing a positive review. I feel the reason why the bags would inflate is because the consumer uses general knowledge and commonsense thinking they know how the bag works, like i did in the begging.

These are great bags for king sized blankets or extra pillows, however- they are not high quality. I’ve ordered 4 so far, 2 have leaked straight from the box and they can only handle being filled 2x’s without the value leaking or getting a seam tear. They are the only ones i’ve found in this size at this price. If you don’t mind replacing them each season, these are a good buy.
