Loving the website "Mansemouse"! I can use it to help me keep my flat tidy as Mim is never any use when she comes to visit and just makes even more mess!

I love the website Mansemouse. I particularly like the article
comparing spray cleaner with cream cleaner. I myself am a user and
believer in both. Just like my mum. I think you must have done a few
shopping trips and cleaning projects together.

According to a news report, a certain private school in Victoria recently was faced with a unique problem. A number of 12-year-old girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the bathroom. That was fine, but after they put an their lipstick they would press their lips to the mirror, leaving dozens of little lip prints.

Every night, the maintenance man would remove them and the next day, the girls would put them back. Finally the principal decided that something had to be done.

She called all the girls to the bathroom and met them there with the maintenance man. She explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the janitor who had to clean the mirrors every night. To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the mirrors, she asked the janitor to show the girls how much effort was required.

He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it in the toilet, and cleaned the mirror with it. Since then, there have been no lip prints on the mirror.
