A tip that I remembered today was to re-use old toothbrushes as mini-scrubbing brushes. Once past using for brushing teeth there is still plenty of use left in them for scrubbing dirt out of little crevices or awkward to get to places ie like round the base of taps.Ok

Oh that is so funny TA.      Big_Laugh      You are very clever - although Danny may not agree!!!! 

Yes I use toothbrushes around tap areas too in the houses that I clean  ( I'm not so fussy in my own house I am afraid )

Good to see it is not just me who finds them so useful. Wonder why Danny has 3 dogs in his show polish box though? Very strange!Smug
