    LOl! I've been told about this and given instructions but I just can't bring myself to do that and really don't know how I would reach... I'm kinda leaving that place to itself at the moment!

    Managed to get DH to do it twice for me so far - tried myself a couple of times too - easiest when you are in the bath or if you put a foot up on something - will admit it is difficult to reach
