You worry about germs on your countertops and tables. But what about the floor? That's where you set your purse, especially at restaurants!
One company claims a single wire will change that. The $10 Hollywood Purse Hooks are designed to keep your bag up off the ground. For that price you get two hooks---one gold, one silver----that attach to the edge of a table.
Dawn, Cherri and Karley come loaded with purses to a local Applebee's to find out. When Dawn hangs the first hook off the table, though, they're not impressed. It's very wobbly. Despite that, she hangs her purse on it---and changes her mind.
The weight of the purse anchors the hook more securely to the table. Cherri takes the idea and goes one better. She grabs a second hook and hangs an even bigger purse on that. It's more secure than the first.
And then she pushes the envelope even more: she hangs three big purses on the same hook. And they all hold without any problem.
Proof that bigger is better: Karley's small clubbing purse doesn't add much weight to her hook. It holds, but barely.
Does It Work? All three woman say yes.
And with that in mind, Cherri has a suggestion for restaurants. She says they give kids crayons while they wait, so they should give ladies Purse Hooks.
