    My friend recommended the Karcher window vac.

    It’s great for drying out the inside of a steamy, streaming shower to reduce horrible black mould spots. 🙂

    Keeps our house warm!
    We still have not double-glazed everywhere so we wake up to condensation.
    The Karcher really makes a difference.
    Dry windows - warm house.

    I bought a small dehumidifier when we moved into this bungalow 4 years back (it had been empty for 5 years) the roof needed sorting the kitchen ceiling fell in the day we moved in. anyway the delhongi worked and still works brilliantly when running it also puts positive ions into the atmosphere no more damp or mould cheap to run and even has a clothes drying setting all for £59.00.

    I’ve got a dehumidifier too, great for drying washing. Essential in our rainy climate. Used to dry my jeans in front of the fire overnight in my teens then put them on still damp the following day.

    remember putting my new levis on then climing into the bath to shrink them/ also bleaching them to age them.

    I never progressed to punk and stubbornly clung to the hippie
    era wearing open toe sandals right through the winter.

    I bought, at a garage sale, a gadget about 20 years ago and have yet to figure out what it is. It is currently a "piece of art" on one of our walls.

    Now you have my attention. 🤔

    1) Does it have screws in it?

    The only "screws" it has/had were when I tried figuring out what it was and finally said, "Ah, screw this. Whatever it was, it's now a piece of art". 😲

    Those are some great names on your "been there...done that" concert list.

    I'm of that tweener generation too. I caught the tail end of the 60's in my youth, and cut my adolescent teeth on punk.

    BTW: The Kinks' music is timeless.
