Plagued by Grot?

MarkdownMom found this new word and it may prove useful in playing the new electronic version of Scrabble.  What does grot mean?  Here are some guesses:

  • gross rot
  • mixture of sweat and skin found in those unmentionable places
  • what politicians exude at political  addresses
  • the smell coming from a refrigerator overdue for a cleaning
  • dirt and crud

Well, it’s all of the above and more.  It’s English slang for rubbish or dirt.  What a neat word?  Think of all its’ uses!  To get rid of grot in its’ physical rather than metaphysical form depends upon its’ source.

For all things grotty, find the answer in Kim Woodburn and Aggie MacKenzie’ s How  Clean Is Your House, based on their TV series.   They attack  cleaning nightmares with vigor and green products often found around the house and costing loads less than retail counterparts.  Find at Amazon for $15.57 +sh.
