JonF, I noticed from your profile that you are retired. Early retired or just very old? I'm originally a West Yorks boy myself, Bratfed!
Been a North Yorks resident for the last 27 years - Harrowgayte, or Harriget, depending on your enunciation. Only for 24 hours more though as I'm moving to Pateley Bridge, actually a village/hamlet next door, Bewerley.
Back on track, yes, Polti steam cleaners are brilliant. Friend of mine has one which I have used occasionally. As for highly polished strips, no idea!
