    My front door (opens onto to a communal hallway) once had fraught excluder which has long since disintegrated.  I’m going to replace it but need to clean off the residue of grout and dried out adhesive.  Any suggestions as to what to use?

    I always wear slippers around the house, but they've always been cheap ones.  Having read some of your replies it would seem that's a false economy, so I'll look at 'investing' in some better quality ones.

    -taff,  please can you tell me which slippers you bought?  I have been thinking that I need to buy a better pair and I am trying to move towards using more natural materials.  The various brands of fleece boots I have been buying only last one winter.  I have fused ankles so have to be sure I can get them on and off so it's a nuisance having to go through the process of finding a new pair that work for me every year.

    Regarding slippers, I find slipper boots work well for me, as it seems to be my ankles that need the most insulating. I wear socks with them too, and sometimes legwarmers (actually you have all reminded me it might be time to knit some more legwarmers!).

    My latest pair of slipper boots were on sale in the supermarket, bigger size than I wear, but allows space for thick socks in winter.

    I bought a pair of this style from fitflop recently and they have been worth every penny compared to the cheap pair I had been wearing.

    Fitflops are so good in the winter thanks to the really thick sole. Nearly all of my shoes, boots and sandals are fitflops. I had to start wearing them thanks to plantar fasciitis but have continued ot buy them since. I'm like Imelda Marcos now...
