It is easy to use and never fails to...

I have mainly used it for drying herbs and tomatoes to pack them i...

They are not usually top quality standard but for that price who can complain. In the supermarket you would probably get a small plastic bag with about 6-8 carrots o...

Re: washing powder.... different smell?!

Hi all, i received a free trial of soapnuts off the internet a few weeks ago but wasnt too impressed. they didnt seem as good as i'd thought theyd be, I decided to have a look in local health food shops and have found a fairly local supplier who will order them for me as i need them, I have picked t...

Re: pasta machines

I bought a pasta machine when i first got married (20+ years ago), tried it once, couldnt get the hang of it and it dissapeared a few years later in a house move.
