A song and dance over cleaning
07 March 2013
Byotrol Technology has helped a Lancashire folk dance outfit with an unusual cleaning dilemma. Each Easter Saturday since 1857, the Britannia Coconutters have performed a 12- hour dance marathon in Bacup, Lancashire, wearing their traditional regalia of blackened faces, white hats, clogs and red and white kilts.
The ritual, known as 'Beating the Bounds' sees the 'Nutters' dance from one boundary of Bacup to the other, taking in several pubs and the landmark 'Nutters Garden' along the way.
Winter weather can leave the flagstones in the 'Nutters Garden' with a coating of algae and, as the nutters wear traditional iron-clad Lancashire clogs, this can prove slippy.
Richard Lewis, a troupe member approached Byotrol to help them clean up the area having used their products successfully for cleaning algae off his greenhouse and making his own flagged garden paths safe.
Byotrol provided some of their specialist outdoor cleaner, Inhibitor. It disrupts the reproductive cycle of the microscopic spores which cause algal growth, yet is non-toxic.
