We try and always Reduce Reuse Recycle Repurpose Reclaim Restore rather than buy new when we can. This doesn’t always work as we are both professionals and need to dress the part, plus there are certain areas of the house we are doing up so there is a need to mostly buy new, but we do our best.
Jamie has always used our very old vacuum to clean the back patio area. He finds it a far superior clean to using a broom. Not long ago a wheel fell off the vacuum and could not be fixed. As neither of us wanted to buy a new cleaner he decided to find a way to make it work.
And this is what he came up with!
It works exceptionally well. Though I am not sure our little granddaughter will be too impressed to find he has reused her block trolley!
