didn't plumbers use the skin for cleaning copper pipes?

I thought that they used them for wiping down sweated lead to copper or lead to lead joints/repairs.

Perhaps that is what I was thinking of?

We had a really bad problem the last two years and this Spring put in one of those mole deterrent spikes that you put batteries in, and I have to say it has worked, although not over the distance claimed! The moles are still making mounds at the far edge of the lawn occasionally but have mostly gone into next door's field. The veg plot is undisturbed so far this year, which is a first, and was the whole point of the exercise for us.
