A clean sweep

Submitted by Andie

Do you ever get fed up with your dust pan and brush getting dirty when you are cleaning something particularly dirty. Well next time put your brush in a plastic bag and your pan in a plastic bag. When you have finished throw the plastic bags away with the mess inside them.

Excellent idea: Especially for fireplaces.
Rubber bands used to hold vegetables together work great for holding the plastic bags in place.

Have you thought? Comments By: Irames on 2009-07-02
Whilst in essence the idea is good, how about the repercussion it will have on the environment? Plastic bags are not good, it would be much kinder to simply wash both after use if too dirty, and probably takes the same amount of time as covering and securing the bags in the first place!
