    socket-numbers

    Sorry for bothering the community. What is the woman saying?

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-bIMTXETPJo&t=1624s (at 35:00-35:17)


    Alison from Lincolnshire spends over thirty hours a week keeping her five bedroom family home immaculate.

    "____________ socket___________many times up to be___________ all of the number off (of) it."

    Thank you.

    That's a tough one. I understand the meaning of the sentence but I can't resolve all the words. She's saying that the socket looks black because she's scrubbed it so many times, she's taken the enamel off it.

    Her Lincolnshire is quite difficult for my American English-trained ears to follow.

    Generally she's OK, sometimes much better. This might be the toughest moment to deal with. Thank you for your help.

    Very difficult indeed. I only caught "I took the top layer of enamel off it".
