As with the previous reviews, I have found that this item becomes mouldy very quickly, despite washing. I initially tried hand-washing, then machine washing, but it remains stained with black mould. I was planing to buy another, as it really does work well in the 'fridge, but having seen other feedback thought I should also feed it back. I'd rate this product 5 for how well it works but 1 for durability, hence rating it at 3.

A note from the team: Thanks for the review and taking the time to speak to me on the phone. I'm glad I was able to help.
Very disappointing! I bought this a couple of months ago and it is covered in black mould which won't wash out. I think I will go back to lining the drawer with kitchen paper towel, it works just as well.

I have used this in the fridge vegetable basket and it keeps going mouldy and i have had to throw it away. It did not last very long!

6 years and still going”
I first ordered the fruit and veg cushions for myself and my daughter around 6 years ago. They do "what they say on the tin" marvelously. They wash easily and the fruit and veg stay fresher so much longer. Now I am back to order some more as I have just bought a larger fridge freezer.

This is such a simple idea, you wonder why no one thought of it before, especially good for tomatoes and peaches!

Fragile - torn easily”
by Ms Tan
I was very pleased with this item when I first bought it. However, recently some of my vege went mouldy while I was on holiday and the mould stuck on to the mat. I tried to handwash it. Unfortunately, the item was torn in seconds and I couldn't get the mould off completely.

I must say I must agree with Mrs Millard's review below. These really do prolong the life of root vegetables, but also peppers for some reason I can't explain. I have a Smeg fridge which has two veg trays at the bottom of the fridge, rather than one. I have divided the sheet accordingly - its big enough to do it. This is a quality product that actually does what it says. You won't be disappointed.

Fantastic product, it really works. Veggies stay fresh longer and it is easy to clean. Would highly recommend.

Works well for me”
I have used these cushions in the veg drawer of my fridge for several years now, and I believe that they are a great help in extending the life of fruit and veg. Anything that saves waste is worth it's weight in gold!

with my fridge being often opened by hungry teenagers, I do get alot of moisture due to the warm air going into the fridge. I have several of these (wash well) and I find them excellent, they do their job. Warning to Parents with arty children, don't be surprised if parts of it go missing and people ask you where you got it from.

Not very exciting but works”
Okay, this may not be the most exciting product in the world but I've definitely seen an improvement on how long fruit and veg lasts, particularly as my vegetable trays always seemed to collect a fair bit of dampness in the bottom. All I can say is worth a go if you're having problems as you have the famous Lakeland guarantee. Some vegetables will always go off quicker than others but I've had root vegetables in my fridge for a fortnight or more with this in place.

I bought this item a few months ago based on the excellent reviews found on this website but I have to say that I am hugely disappointed. It does cushion the veg but I can't say that it has made a bit of difference on how long my veg stays fresh. Maybe I was expecting too much. I certainly won't be replacing it.

Cut a piece to fit a shallow box, then use it to store stud earrings, securing with the butterfly on the back.Works brilliantly!

GOT A NEW FRIDGE NEED A NEW CUSHION!!”
by Mrs Curtis
I recently had to get a new fridge and the cushion i have used for many years was to small to fit the draw as it was cut to size for my old one. So i purchased a new one, recommend them to everyone and find them great, veg last ages and mushrooms are not busied.

Does seem to work!”
Finally got this & veg/salad that is usually 'off' by end of week, seems to be ok. So all in all impressed, as didn't really expect it to work as well as it did. BUT it does!

This is one of those items I kept looking at and then not buying. Earlier this year I decided to take the plunge as I was beginning to annoy myself by just looking at it all the time! It does exactly what it says. I use it in my salad and veg drawers in the fridge and it is great. They really do stay fresher longer. Very, very pleased so may well get some for the fruit bowl next....

larger piece than I thought so I cut it up for both drawers, fruit and veg keeps so much better and not so bruised.
