Super soap

-

SIR – Annette Scott’s father’s choice of Fairy liquid for hairwashin­g (Letters, September 2) reminded me of Sunlight soap, which worked beautifull­y with the soft Loch Katrine water of my Glasgow childhood. A move to London and hard water ended that economy. Sheila Stevens

SIR – My grandfathe­r’s sight deteriorat­ed in his later years and, on one occasion, he used Windolene to wash his hair. The lack of any lather puzzled him.

We had to start supervisin­g him much more closely after he tried to use Deep Heat on his toothbrush.
