Monday Mystery

Last week's object


was soon identified by Ragged Robin, Adrian, Ellen D and Wilma as a pumice stone. Well done to all who had a go. It had, and still has, many uses such as removing hard skin, and calluses. One use, mentioned by Adrian, I had forgotten about was cleaning steps. My mother scrubbed the stone front door step every week, as did many women, when I was a nipper. I have used this one along with Swarfega to help remove stubborn paint stains from my hands.

Another full view of an object this week:


Once again, what is it used for? If you would like to have a guess please leave it in the comments. They will be revealed, with the answer, next Monday.


  1. Stuffing in half empty wine bottles. Not a problem I've ever had to deal with.

  2. PS. We have gone all Greta here. Swarfega has micro platics in. We now use Vim and diesel for shifting shit from our hands. We at least try and remember to read the label.

    1. Adrian: My jar is probably older than Greta and the label fell off years ago.

  3. Its a bottle stopper I think. You put it in an opened bottle of wine to replace the cork and keep wine fresth.

  4. Looks like a wine bottle stopper. Thanks, John!


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
