I received a selection of Aldi tools and work wear from whatsgoodtodo.com to review.
The clothing is of very good quality the t-shirts are more generously sized softer and much thicker than other t-shirts in this price range, at £4.99 for 2, they are exceptional value and I would recommend them.
The trousers and shorts are made of a sturdy material, we have actually purchased these trousers in the past and they are very comfortable and hard wearing. They are generously sized with an elasticated waist for extra comfort and flexibility they are £8.99 which is an excellent price as the ones we bought approximately 2 years ago are still being worn and have lasted much longer than jeans costing 4-5 times as much.
The work gloves are of a nice thick quality, while being soft against the skin, again these are something I have previously purchased form Aldi for multiple uses, I personally have used them for gardening and wreath making and they kept my hands clean and dry, I have used more expensive gloves but these Aldi ones do the same job for a fraction of the price.
The knee pads are again of good quality, and can be used for a number of different jobs such as gardening and DIY, I found them useful when laying a laminate floor as anybody who has laid one will know how hard it is on the knees. They are reasonably priced and as durable as more expensive brands.
An essential item when trying to reach cables in cavities such as between floorboards and joists. I used the cable finder when fixing a TV to the wall, we didn’t want cables showing on the wall so fed the cables through the cavity in the wall, this would have been an extremely tricky job but the cable finder made it easy, this tool is essential for electricians and the quality of the Aldi cable finder is comparable to more expensive brands.
Damaged Screw Remover Set
We have all come across those awkward embedded or broken screws that refuse to move with a screwdriver this is a very handy tool that allows screws to be easily. This 5 piece set is an essential tool for any tradesman or DIY enthusiast and can save time and possible damage to items, for the bargain price of £4.99 this really is a valuable addition to any tool kit.
Furniture casters are handy for easy movement of furniture, as they have a soft finish they minimise damage to carpets and hard floors, the ones on offer at Aldi are of a good sturdy quality with a low price tag.
Aldi have a wide range of tools and work wear for sale at low prices, we have lots of tools and find the Aldi brand to be as durable and reliable as other brands with a much higher price tag, if we need to buy a new tool we always check at Aldi to see if what we need is available. The customer service is also excellent if an item needs to be returned. I would recommend buying tools and work wear as the reason for Aldi prices is to do with the smart strategies such as selling fewer items which increases sales volume helping drive discounts, not the quality of its stock.
