A few weeks ago we noticed that our patio slabs were going a bit wonky in one part so we decided to lift them up and re-lay them again flattening the earth underneath to get a better finish. When we lifted up the slabs they had a load of muck on the underside that was stuck on in hard lumps. We decided to go and buy a wire brush to see if it was easy to use to get the debris off the slabs.


The one we found was in the local £1 shop and it has 3 rows of wire going along it to make the bristles. It has a wooden handle and the shape of the brush is like a large hairbrush but with metal bristles.


The brush is easy to hold as the handle is quite comfortable and fits in your hand nicely. The metal bristles are nice and firm so when you brush the underside of the slab with the brush it knocks off all the bits and pieces that were stuck to it really quickly. It didn't really mark the slabs either although I am not sure whether I would use it on the top sides of them but then again we don't get the clumpy bits stuck to that.


Since we have had the brush we have found other uses for it, we have used it on the back step to remove the paint from the corners before repainting it again and it got all the dirt out from the corners too. You just have to be a bit careful you don't go too mad with it and upset the cement around the brickwork or anything.


If you can find one of these brushes in your local shop then its a good idea to have one in your shed in case you need to use it as they are cheap to buy and would last a long time. We have left our one out side in our lean to and it hasn't gone rusty or anything.
