Rated 5 out of 5Â by Aegle SERIOUS suction power
I read the reviews before purchasing these, as I naturally don't have good luck with suction cups, and was nervous.
I bought a pack despite the occasional terrible review, and I was a little concerned - some of the blue dye from the packaging was stuck to the corner of the suction cup, and I thought it would hurt.
Lo and behold, I followed the suction cup directions, and it worked just fine on my glossy bathroom tile. I bought another pack for more stuff, and they hold just fine. We use them for wet loofas, shower squeegee, and drying washcloths. It holds just fine.
The first time I installed it, I just used my finger to brush off any residue before applying it. The second time (we removed it to clean the bathroom surfaces), I applied on a freshly clean glossy tile, and my husband was unaware of the "let sit for 24 hours" rule and hung our stuff right back up within an hour. Didn't matter, they stick just fine.
Oh, and they look phenomenal, and are super functional. The hook is a really deep hook, not some wussy thing.
If YOU have problems with it, I would recommend trying it on a different surface to see if the cup is actually the problem. Maybe suction cups never work for you due to the surface you're wanting to put a suction cup on.

I wanted a hook to hold a shower cap---maybe one ounce in weight. This did not stay up, even on tile, even after wetting the surface before applying. Very disappointing.

I did not want to drill into the beautiful white subway tile in my newly-remodeled bathroom! These hooks are exactly what I needed to hold back the shower curtains on either end of my gorgeous slipper clawfoot tub. I tied gray ribbon around each hook, which I then tie to the curtains when I draw them back. The result is lovely, with the hooks completely invisible and the walls undamaged!

They are pretty good so far. I purchased two of them to hang shower poufs and they are still stuck to the wall. I don't think they can handle anything too heavy though. When I first put them on the wall, one of them fell to the bath tub floor with nothing hanging on it. When I stuck it back on the wall, I used a little more force and it has not fallen off since. I have tiled bathroom walls-not the shiny subway tiles kind-mine are kind of a dry/matte tile (not really sure how it explain it) which is prob why the suction is not that strong. I am pretty sure that if you used these on a mirror, glass, or shiny kind of tile the suction would be amazing.
