Antibacterial floor wipes;
yes, they're great. But whatever that wet stuff is, it's corrosive. So if you keep using them on your "chrome" kettle/toaster, don't wonder why they develop rust spots over the course of time :)
Some brands are 'wetter' than others, too.
Thought it went without saying that all the different wipes are muchabout the same...so don't buy floor wipes and surface wipes, and bathware wipes...just get the one that smells best;)

Nets.

If you have net curtains dont bother to iron them after washing. Just hang um up wet and they will sort themselves out. If they are looking a bit grey get some Glo White from most supermarkets. That gets um nice and white.


Apparently the stuff you use to clean dentures is also good for this. :-)

The other great use for them is the loo. Just wipe it all down and when yr done flush it away, bleach it all and yr good to go.


NONONONO!!! Don't whatever you do flush these down the loo!! They don't biodegrade at all, so get stuck in the sewage system somewhere downstream. If you keep chucking them down the pan you'll end up blocking the flow and you know what that means don't you?? Chuck 'em in the bin like normal people... ;-P

I can't believe anyone irons their bed linen... I mean, it gets stretched out smooth on the bed when you put it on, and crumpled up when you sleep on it for heaven's sake!! Maybe it's all that time living on a boat without easy access to 240V power, but I rarely iron anything at all these days. It's all a matter of hanging it right when wet... :-)

Got to agree about Martin Lewis, the man is a God!! ;-)

WCX (loving all these ideas).

Hi, Start with saying that I am female. As for solicitors..., I went straight for the quickie (grown up kids, Scotland). If you get all of your documents yourself e.g. redemption value, pension statements, settlement for endowments,your own bank account - transfer your wages/tell your employer. It can save you a packet. Get a witness to documents, free at a court. Always tell the solicitor that you will handle letters - go to citizen advice for help. Most important pick up and put it down for a break periodically - these organisations usually make errors, so check! E.g. my pension + endowment forms...for pensions just check a previous statement and compare. If you don''t have something ask for copies. Keep everything in a file!! At the end check his bill, if he thinks that you are on the ball he shouldn''t over charge.
