Glad for you! My gut feeling about not being so good as a hopback was right - oh well.

If you haven't tried it, have a go - you might be very surprised.
*Those shiny, soap-free, coarse-cut balls of SS, not brillo pads or anything like that!

I've seen that talked about on a couple of sites but tbh I didn't have much confidence in it working. I shall give it a try next time. Cheers!
