5th June: New Back Brush!

It seems silly writing a post about buying a new brush to scrub my back,  but it is a once in decades event!  The previous one was bought many years ago from the Body Shop so I thought I’d see if they would sell me a replacement.  The old one was made of solid wood, and the handle was developing the sort of patina which antique experts say can’t be forged.

The new one is ply and certified by the Forestry Stewardship Council as being 100% wood, which makes me wonder what holds it all together?  The Body Shop  advert says it is a “Cactus Long Handle Brush” and good for exfoliation, which I believe is what deciduous trees do in the autumn.  I wonder if it will last as long as its predecessor?
