Best Buy June 2018 – Clean-up

This month the KG team tried out a range of products to help us in the battle against dirt and grime…

GLASS SQUEEGEE (BEST BUY)

The head consists of a soft, absorbent sponge which will wash away loose dirt and grime on your greenhouse glass. The other side of the sponge has a rubber blade for drying the glass after cleaning. To be used with a Spiral Flow Hose or Swoop Top Pole (both sold separately).

PRICE GUIDE: FROM £5.99

This is a labour-saving gadget, great for getting to those higher areas of the greenhouse. We liked the design with the drying blade on the reverse of the sponge. The pole is easily extendable and gives plenty of reach.

TOOL SCRAPER (TOP PICK)

New from the makers of the original Paper Potter

This tool scraper made from FSC oak and designed in the UK has a curved edge to clean hand tools such as trowels, spades and hand forks, and the hard edge to clean dibbers, planters and labels.

A seemingly simple but very effective cleaning tool. We particularly liked the way its curved design made it possible to get to those difficult-to-reach areas.
