Cleaning up, who would have known?

Post by Gavster30 » Sat Jun 23, 2018 4:20 pm

So I thought you guys might like a laugh but actually it is also quite serious!

I have just swapped my old rusty brakes for some new shiny Bosch ones but in the process I got filthy!

So in I come and look for my swarfeger only to find out the Mrs has thrown it out, woh is me, then she offers me a solution, some body scrub thing (see pic) and it works amazingly! Apply dry and the oil and grime literally turn into a black fluff and you just rinse off, it only needs a small squirt.

I was very impressed, so treat your better halves to some of this and secretly use it Image

Top tip;

Mix 50:50 white spirit and fairy liquid, whisk it up and magically you will have made swarfega. Smells like it, looks like it and is the said same stuff !

What I've found lately though are that those poncy hand soaps (pump despenser type) are also really good for hand cleaning and obviously smell lush, unlike swarfega which stinks.

Add a spoon full of sugar into the mix for added scrubbing grit.
