Ikea suction holders

Some people don't use suction stuff, because they say they fall off in the heat. I know many of mine come off when I store the "Suite Escape" for long periods. Has anyone tried these? Search result - IKEA


I bought these several months ago and installed them in our Escape's bathroom. They seem to be very strong as far as the hold goes. The secret is to make sure the area you are going to put them in has been thoroughly cleaned first. Many "bath" cleaners leave a film so water runs off better but it also makes it harder for suction mounts to stay stuck. Also, everything has limits - don't overload it!

I got the idea to move the tp holder from Carol R, as she had it placed in a different spot during the build. She did not want it on the door. I have bumped it a time or two, but never enough to damage anything.

The first thing I did was replace the toilet paper holder to a marine type that keeps the toilet paper safe from moisture. I wanted to change it's position slightly so had the hubby drill new holes for the wall plugs / filled them with silicone before screw mounting it. However, as a DIYer, I'm not afraid of using screws.

BTW - 3M Command strips also has a few products specifically for high moisture bathroom use. I have seen bath towel hooks, toothbrush/paste holder as well as the soap dish.
