When I was wee my mum had a good stiff carpet brush, can you still buy such a thing?
I'm talking about a little thin, almost sharp edged brush, what I want it for is getting into the corners (not sweeping the whole floor, I'm not that keen!) because even the wee nozzle attachment on my otherwise fantastic Dyson doesn't quite get the dust out from where the carpet meets the skirting board.
maybe cleaning the carpet was a bit of a strong word, it's more like getting the dust out of the corners that the vacuum doesn't work for.
I think I need something quite small. After I posted this, it suddenly occurred to me that maybe a pet shop could be a good option, as I think they sell brushes for gathering up pet hair. Maybe they'd work for general hair & dust etc...?
