Have a question and looking for some creative solutions in this restricted state.

 

Agreed with the Principal Warefare Officer to give the house a wash, good way to kill off some time and get out and about.....

 

Seems I'm short of the soap log that goes in the base of the brush, have considered sunlight soap.....have plenty of that.

 

Any other options i may have overlooked?

 

 

 

Cheers, hope everyone's staying safe and sane!

I have the same brush I suspect - Raven?

 

I don't think a solid bar of soap will work - will be too dense to suds up properly as the water runs by it. I suspect soap flakes would be fine (either grate the sunlight soap yourself or buy from supermarket). But also probably just as easy to walk down the length of the house trailing a line of dishwashing liquid or car wash and suds that up with the brush before rinsing off. Better still will be dedicated housewash that has an anti mould stuff in it, but doubt you will get that from the supermarket.

When I do a quick wash of the house to get bird poo and such off I just use car washing liquid soap as it's usually closest to hand. I think any soap will do.

I have one of those Raven house brushes - have had it for years. The original soap that came with it was a soft-ish slug of solid white soap - roughly the size and shape of a lipstick. I’d try cutting down a bar of Sunlight to fit in the receptacle in the handle - see how it goes.





Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

would be gone in about 3 seconds. the full flow of water runs past the soap.

 

i would suspect any sort of hardish soap would work.

Another vote for car wash soap if you have any.  Wet the house, give it a scrub with the soap, and hose it off.  Does a pretty good job on windows to if you squeegee them down afterwards.

Sounds like a plan, will give it a run and see how it goes

Carwash was a winner, worked well and left the glass nice and clean!

 

unsure if there are better or worse options, but my house now has a wash and wax!!

 

Cheers
