bicarb, juice - make a paste with water, rub it in then hoove out when it's dry - magic. (You can get it at the supermarket if you havent't got any in).

hello jan
yes it is, the tail end of winter, clear and sunny and I'm in a tee shirt with all the doors and windows open.

Wish I'd known about bicarb when ds1 was jackson pollocking the carpet with SMA every night

So it is - how strange - that must take a bit of getting used to - June/July/August being winter?

Clear and sunny here too, Lancs summer just like Oz winter!
