Whilst blitzing our shower room I turned to some industrial strength limescale remover - it's really lethal stuff and not for sale in your normal supermarket either. We live in a very chalky area here in Hampshire and limescale drives me crazy.
Seeing me waving the bottle of lethal chemical, Len warned me to be careful - but he'd never seen me in full cleaning garb when using that stuff. Later on, hearing the sound of a toothbrush frantically scrubbing in a particularly hidden part of porcelain ware, he stuck his head round the door to be greeted by yours truly attired as follows:
1. Elbow length rubber gloves - check
2. Huge protective apron - check
3. A protective pair of goggles - check
4. Toothbrush in hand - I buy cheap ones in packs of four from the supermarket as they're great for getting into tricky little places when house cleaning - check
As I turned round Len almost collapsed laughing and snorted 'Good God, The Graduate strikes again. Shall I go up into the loft for your flippers and snorkel?'
This is for Annie's 'Friday Smile' - go on, take a peek, it's all good fun!
Fantastic... Just cracked out laughing at that scenario! Heehee! XxReplyDelete

PS That's a Top Tip about cheap toothbrushes, I usually have old ones to hand and they're so splayed-out that they don't work very well. *adds cheap toothbrushes to shopping list* Thanks!! x

We barmy ones should stick together. LMAO!
Hugs to you Sue Pxxx
This cracked me up, it did! I'm impressed at your cleaning energy. Care to send me some? Loved your photo. I use old brushes for that kind of thing as well. Got a tip to save the old brushheads from the electric toothbrush, put 'em in the handle part, and scrub away. It works & saves on elbow grease. (I'm allergic to work too!). TFS & HugsReplyDelete
LOL Di so funny lol@ ferret mode!! huggles Sue xxReplyDelete
