A couple of weeks ago my flatmate threw out a perfectly good kitchen sink brush, and replaced it with a brand new one from the mysterious cupboard beneath the sink.
I couldn’t believe it. The brush was still in perfectly good nick – the plastic bristles barely scratched despite several months of washing dishes – and barely distinguishable from the new one.
This morning, as I prepared to decamp to my sacred space with coffee and a couple of lovely slices of homemade wholemeal and sunflower seed toast, and was washing the bread knife, board, and the spoon I used to decant olive oil onto my bread (with a sprinkle of curry powder – yum!), and noted the new brush hanging next to the window, I had a brainwave.
Save money and avoid wastage: give that unloved kitchen brush new life in the lavatory as a toilet brush.
With its long handle, and scrubber head, an unloved kitchen sink brush is perfect for cleaning the lavatory. Let’s face it, dunny brushes are usually the last thing any of us think of replacing. It just sits next to the pan, waiting to burst into action on cleaning day, or the next time….. well, I’ll leave that to your imagination.
If your usual dunny brush is looking sad, unloved, and disgusting, and you are ready to send it to the recycling bin, replacing it with a pre-loved kitchen sink scrubbing brush may be the solution for you.
Waste not, want not.
Isn’t this a little leaf of abundance?
