This nifty sink brush is one of my newest Lakeland purchases, I had been trying to go cold turkey with my Lakeland addiction, but I just couldn't stop myself from going in there last week and came out with a big bag full of goodies. Here is what I thought of this glass cleaner.
What is it?
It is a special brush for cleaning glasses, cups and mugs. In fact it can be used for any cylinder shaped things I find mine useful for cleaning jam and marmalade jars before recycling, also great for vases or wide necked bottles.
It is a tough plastic base with two vertical nylon brushes on it, one is wide like a bottle brush, the other brush is a thinner brush that looks a bit like a toothbrush, this is designed to clean the outside of the glass.
There are three suction pads on the bottom of the base, this holds the brush firmly in place.
How to use it.
It is so quick and easy to use, you simply place your vessel over the wide brush and give it a twist, as you turn your glass the other brush will simultaneously clean the outside.
I have a bowl of hot water with fairy in and put the cups and glasses in there for a few minutes, then just one and a time use the brush.
Does it work ?
I think it really does a fantastic job, some of my glasses are very narrow at the base and so my hands can't fit in properly to clean them, this takes that problem away for me. Also some of my mugs were quite tea stained a few twists on the brush had them as good as new. The suction pads work really well and keep the brush in place whilst you are using it.
I want it but much does it cost and how can I get one ?
The sink brush costs £5.99, the bristles are made of a really strong nylon so I think it would last for a good while.
You can buy this from any Lakeland store, you can also order online at www.lakeland.co.uk or over the telephone on 015394 88100. If you choose to order on line or via telephone they do charge £4.25 postage and packing, however if your order is over £50 p&p is free.
I love my brush and the washing up is a lot quicker and easier to tackle.
The name may be slightly misleading, as it is not a brush to clean your sink with. It is a set of 2 differently shaped brushes that are mouled together and they sit on a base with 3 suction cups that you can attach to the drainer or bottom of your kitchen sink. Unfortunately it won't attach properly onto the drainer as the ridges there stop the suckers from sticking. This is a product to clean cups, glasses and mugs. Even vases! Cleaning cups is always a pain for me, and I keep putting it off, so i thought it would be worth while investing in this gadget. I have found it very helful, but doesn't always clean first time. It may take a minute or so of twisting the cup around on top of the bristles to achieve a spotless clean. You can put a drop of wash up inside the cup before you tip it onto the brush, and that helps. Tea stained cups can be a pain though. When in use, the smaller brush on the outside of the cup cleans around the rim and the sides, and the big inner brush cleans the inside of the cup, naturally :) It looks as though the product will be long lasting. just rinse it off after use and allow to dry. Have a look at this product on their website, search for "sink brush", and see what I mean.
