I already gave a plus one already earlier in the thread but i find myself looking for a new mop and a forum like this would be invaluable for people in the know to recommend one.

I was looking for one myself only yesterday.
They are very desirable items when you haven't got one.

I wish someone would invent one of those old fashioned ones like a bunch of threads, but with something solid in the middle that would actually rub the floor instead of just slopping around. All the sponge ones are rubbish.

Edit: +1 by the way!

There are prob lots of people that would love to know some of the old methods of cleaning that really work without having to spend money on expensive and useless products - know I would!

Passing through the engineering forum, I noticed a bunch of threads which had received 0 replies. Many of these threads were directly concerned with cleaning issues.
I'm sure there are many other forums where similar threads languish unreplied, and sink into the abyss.
It would be great to broaden the parameters of this possible forum to emphasise the restorative aspect of cleaning.
Very often, the problems with seemingly broken things is that they just need to be cleaned.
I'm sure many boardsies will share my distaste for the 'throw away' culture - so prevalent during the boom years, and equally many might remember the culture of 'make do and mend' - a culture we would be smart to re-evaluate.
It makes sense to me to have a forum where posts should go intuitively, rather than having them sitting all alone and ignored in the wrong place.

Perhaps cleaning and housekeeping? The home and garden section is great for the big once-off stuff but lacking in somewhere to discuss the regular day to day business of cleaning and kaintaining a home
