Hailo swing bin
We were in need of a small bin for the bathroom as i find it quite a bind walking downstairs with used make up wipes and cotton wool pads. very lazy of me!
I bout this from www.amazon.co.uk and it cost around the £10 mark. it is available on many other sites but i always worry about getting stung for the postage costs.
I bought the bin in white but it is available in lots of other colours so something i think to coordinate with practically any colour scheme. The main part of this bin is obviously white with the swing part being white and the top trim being black with the Hailo logo printed on the top. It has almost a retro look to it and is very sturdy looking for something quite small and compact. The swing part of the bin is nice and wide which is a bonus, so I'm not fighting to get things inside and it swings open and closed smoothly. Another bonus of the swing mechanism is that it doesn't swing all the way round and run the risk of coming off its hinges. It just swings to open mode and the closes again.
The bin stands 32cm tall so for us it's just the right size to sit next to the sink, and it has an adequate 4 litre capacity which is quite enough because I wouldn't want anything bigger as I like to empty it frequently. It has a plastic inner bin for lifting out and emptying and this inner bin is easy to clean with normal washing up liquid. The outer casing of the bin is made of stainless steel which has a corrosion resistant coating which means that even though it is close to the sink and therefore subjected to water being splashed on it, it doesn't look rusty or discolour.
This is a really handy small bin which for a bin is quite attractive looking. The swing lid opens easily and because it is nice and wide, I don't have o force things through or put my hand in the bin.
It's easy to clean and has just the right capacity for our needs, and I can quite see why it's described as a cosmetic bin.
I'm definitely pleased I chose this bin as its exactly what we were looking for.
