      They don't stick too well to laminate; I used them to hang some dishcloth holders in the kitchen and they all fell off after about a week. Probably won't be an issue unless you have a 70's house with laminate walls like my parents'.

      From experience, it depends on the state of the plaster. I have used them in a few places without a problem, but in one it took chunks off the wall.:( landlord wasn't impressed!!

      Don't do what we did. We had a rental in a new area with no tree cover. The blazxing sun came into our boys bedrooms and woke them up everymorning. So I put aluminium foil on the windows to block out the sun. Worked a treat. When winter came, I took the foil down, and it had leached into the glass. Couldn't get it off, it looked like an etching. Luckily the landlord didn't spot it when we left.

      Wow, that would never even occur to me. (To put it up or that it would mark the glass).

      Yes, I lived in a house in the uk where the plaster would come off when you stuck things on it. Luckily not rented.

      I only rented once our current posh flat in a new build in Birmingham city centre. agent says we could do what we like as long as we filled the wholes after. they seem very reasonable saying something like its your home u need to have it how your comfortable. we been there for nearly three yeara now. think we wouldn't have stayed that long if they had been anal about thngs like that. they should at least provide a few nails per room if they dont want u putting your own stuff in.

      my parents use these magic hook things they had no problem and move stuff around from time to time.

      To be honest all the rentals I've been in the paint/plaster on the walls has been so cheap that the removable strips did cause damage. In general we were able to use them on the doors with no problem, but no chance on the walls.

      My plaster must be mega strong. It is still holding onto wallpaper which is older than me. ;-)

      Thank you all for your replies, couldn't bear linving in a blank box, so good news! would obviously check with landlord first mind you, not worth the aggro.
      Will keep a look out for the cheaper versions
