'Chemical window cleaners are expensive' - really? You do know that water (H2O), white vinegar (CH3COOH) and lemon oil (a mix of a-pinene, camphene, b-pinene, sabinene, myrcene, a-terpinene, linalool, b-bisabolene, limonene, trans-a-bergamotene, nerol and neral) and lavender oil (a-pinene, limonene, 1,8-cineole, cis-ocimene, trans-ocimene, 3-octanone, camphor, linalool, linalyl acetate, caryophyllene, terpinen-4-ol and lavendulyl acetate) are also chemicals, don't you? As indeed is good old soda bicarbonate (Na2CO3). Perhaps 'manufactured window cleaners are expensive' is what was meant?

Everything has a chemical origin - I think we probably knew what Belle was getting at :)
[Just for the record - kudos for bothering to type all of that out susan_66!]

As with the de-scaling of the kettle, 1:4 of water with vinegar run though the home espresso machine will descale that as well. Just remember to run it through with clean water once before reuse too.

Cleaning the phone is a great one - an office I worked in a lifetime ago had the cleanest phones in the network because of our lovely cleaning lady. Our office also had the least sick days as well!

For me wednesdays are now entitled pamper wednesdays. I can do anything that focuses on beauty and well being. So far I've been to the sauna, gotten my eyebrows done and going to do my hair when the next one comes. Just a way of focusing on looking after myself and my appearance and good for the mid week too xx

Kitchen Trend: It's Time to Marvel at Marble

See how you can make luxurious marble, or its lookalikes, work in your kitchen space Full Story

Looked into marble for our kitchen renovation for one of our benches but were strongly advised against it by the two marble companies we approached, no good if you actually cook, let's face it we don't live in magazine shoots. Went for stainless steel which is what we already had on the other bench tops, they are 17 years old and look the same as the the new installed ones, a great choice for a functioning hard working family kitchen. I don't know any other bench top material that can stand the test of time better than stainless steel. It does scratch up but that is natural and part of its appeal to me, all bench top space is useable and doesn't need protection from heat, doesn't stain or need to be sealed. Even if you don't like it for all bench tops I would recommend at least one in the kitchen you won't regret it.

It is a stretched canvas. the image wraps over the side of the frame. I can't show you the sides as it is hanging in a client's home :)
