LETTER- Bring back common sense

Cheers to Marlene A. Condon of Crozet for her common-sense solution to hygienic cleaning [Letter, July 31, "Plain soap will do"]!

Add to her suggestion of plain soap and water the cheap wonder disinfectant and cleaner white vinegar, and you have a recipe that's been used successfully by thousands of people over the years.(These are even the ingredients found in some commercial cleaners.) 

Regarding cleaning, dredging, and replacing the Mall brickwork, [two other topics where local government spending has recently been questioned], "common sense doesn't seem to score the points it used to."
