A brush with technology Now you can keep your toothbrush, as well as your teeth, clean. New on the market is the VioClean toothbrush steriliser. This clever device works via

a patented UV and ozone lamp to eliminate harmful germs. Its mechanism starts when you snap the lid shut and it sterilises in six minutes. The VioClean costs [pounds sterling]13.99 (plus [pounds sterling]2.95 for p& p). To order, call 0845 800 1111, or visit www.vioclean.co.uk.

Recycle and reuse Embracing today's reuse and recycle mentality is Whatdoidowiththis.com.

It buys and sells discounted surplus or

unwanted building materials which might otherwise end up in landfill sites.
