sunnystaines/wiz-king, I've just come in from cleaning out my motorhome/campervan (whatever) and realised that I have just stopped myself dying, I cleaned the cab area and then washed down the rest of it inside. It is now immaculate and I am safe. I shall be doing the outside tomorrow with a large soapy brush and then a jet wash. I am proud to say my vehicle is in pristine condition inside and will also be so outside after tomorrow. However I am also using my lad's car while he is on holiday in the USA. His vehicle is in an 'orrible state and I was going to clean it for him and then thought "Why should I?". I hope he doesn't die though.... Too many of these critics and do-gooders. Most cars are as grubby as hell.
I have a old workhorse called a Sierra estate, thats used solely for humping all sorts of rubbish about. Bales of hay, animal feed, bricks, paving slabs,bags of manure you name it,its most likely carried it, and in all that time, never once have I consider the risk of infection.
Must now sit in the corner and have a serious think :O(
"Since when did anybody who speaks correct English English (as opposed to American English) call it anything other than the gear lever?"
It's always been know as a gear knob in there here parts.
As to the original thread, there are probably cleaner public toilets than my car but then I wouldn't have an immune system worth squat if I cleaned everything. I keep telling the car wash chaps in Sainsburys car park that my car likes beeing dirty :-)
