Bulgarian women have been banned from hanging out their washing during a visit by President Bush.
Authorities in the capital Sofia passed a special ruling banning washing along the route of the president's motorcade on June 11.
They have also started rounding up 'unsightly' beggars and clearing up rubbish.
Children who stop cars at traffic lights offering to wash windows have been warned they will be arrested if they try it when Bush arrives.
Police have said the measures are designed to make the city appear in the best possible light.
... as if he gives a toss!
