No, the brushes were in a different part of the store. I love ALDI for the strange and various things they sell sometimes. I even bought a little Airfix kit a couple of weeks ago (just for the memories of when I built them as a kid). They had a tank, plane and a boat.

Thanks for the help. We've just had one open locally and it's the first time I've ever been to an Aldi, they seem to have some great bargains.

Slightly off the original topic but following on from the bit about Aldi brushes. I managed to find them, three in a pack as the photos in the earlier post, they feel really soft and at less than a pound each, they're worth a try.

Nice one. Yes they are very soft. I like that they are slightly tapered at the end too. I may get some medium ones at teh weekend, not the large though - they are mahoosive.

Can't believe how really useful the Screen Cleaner from Halfords is, it's BRILLIANT.

The only problem I had was getting spare pads from the shop. Not sure how the pads will stand up to machine washing but at a pound a time, it's not the end of the World.

I used this yesterday. And tried the ALDI one at the same time to see the difference. As suspected the pivot head on the ALDI is quite stiff and isn't loosening up at all. The Halford's one is effortless and the pads are much better - the ALDI one was linting like mad.
