Swept off our feet?!
A previous tenant pulled up all the carpet in the house but for two bedrooms. Given the cold temperatures, it seemed an odd choice. However I am beginning to realise the decision may have been prompted by cleaning convenience.
It's rained a few times since we moved in - and the mud moved in then also.
We do have a doormat but it isn't really up to the task of cleaning muck from treaded boots. I suggested a boot scraper and Nick found one on eBay for $19.95. Bunnings stocked a similarly-priced but inferior item when we checked yesterday - en route to the recycling (aka dump) shop.
As we poked around the various "treasures", I spotted two industrial-length brush-heads. We purchased them with some other good items, all for $10. Nick cut the brushes in half today and mounted them onto some timber that was already here. Works great - better than a bought one and it was cheaper too as the total cost was less than $5!
