Thank you, Mrs. Bonk. I've found that it's usually the liftcord or the
liftcord mechanism that wears out. I prevent unnecessary wear by
removing the liftcords.
This makes cleaning a cinch. When I spot a dirty slat, I slide it out,
bend it unto a circle, and put it in the washer tub. Afterwards, I wipe
it with a towel rather than put it in the dryer.
I have plastic blinds in my kitchen. They cost a fiver about 15 years
ago. They are still as new. I remove them now and again to the outside
path and throw a bucket of hot soapy water over them then scrub with my
broom, hang on the line and hose down.
I am on a water meter. There is little wastage at my house. I recycle my
bath water, have water savers in my cisterns and various other ways of
saving. My bill has dropped considerably since having the meter fitted.
It would drop even more if you could remember to shut it off when you
drop the hose. Then you wouldn't have to drink out of the tub.
Please don't think that in offering you guidance I am finding fault with
you. As a former beauty-contest judge, I find intelligence an
unattractive quality in women. I must say I find you _extremely_
attractive. Do you Skype?
Now that I'm killfiled, I can speak frankly. Folks, I'd like to
apologize for Mrs. Bonk. She begs for serious home cleaning posters
such as myself, then tries to run us off. This forum was the internet's
intellectual Mecca before she took over.
