If I were to buy a plastic bristle back brush with a plastic handle, how would I cleanse it? Could I use it for years if I keep it clean? If the best cleansing method for a back brush like this would be Clorox, what dilution strength would I use? Would using a spritzer spray and then rinsing it work, or would I need to soak the bristle head? I know that in the kitchen of a church space we used to rent, the dishes were washed by hand, and the health dept. required only a tiny bit of Clorox in the dishpan -- like a tablespoon???

I'm in the furniture business and have a customer we sold a purple velvet sofa to. After 5 years the purple color is rubbing off onto their clothing. We have sprayed fabric protector on a cushion hoping it would seal it but the color is still rubbing off onto a white towel. The customer told us they had covered the sofa with a sheet for 5 years before removing it, then discovered the color rubbing off.
Hi, There is a weird smell in my washing machine. I used to think there was a dead mouse stuck in a pipe or something. Now my clothes come out smelling of garlic. My detergent is scent-free. What type of repair do I call for a problem like this? Thank you!

Some colleagues teach money saving homemde laundry soap recipes for limited income audiences because laundry detergent can be expensive for large families. It consists of 1 bar of ivory soap, 1/2 cup washing soda, 1/2 cup borax power and water. I have called several washing machine companies and no one is on board who can answer my question. I would assume this product would not be good for a washer designed specifically for (he) high efficiency detergents........... but would it be harmless on washers that aren't designed for he detergents? Thanks so much for your help! Barbara Hughes
Hello--I was reading a book published in 1922. The young heroine found a trunk full of clothes, including three pairs of Peggy Janes (which would have made her Aunt Edie shriek with laughter). I cannot find any references to an article of clothing called a Peggy Jane. Can anyone help? Thank you very much.
