It is a sarcastic (I assume Scottish/NE England) phrase meaning “no chance”, “I disagree” or similar

or perhaps it only exists in my head

Give mine a spritz of my surgical spirit spray and wash them with laundry and rotate between 5, reckon I’m alright

I think this is sound advice, but I don’t do it :grimacing:

They never feel as nice if you put them on before washing them first, in my experience.

Depends if you’ve got another set you can use, of course.

Each use for me is approx. 9 hours so I’m washing it. Got 8 on the current rota.
