Estate agencies

Why is it that when someone gives a budget to an estate agent, they always seem to show properties above that price? Has it become the case that when asked for their budget, the buyers now give a lower number, anticipating the higher price response from the agent?

Re: Make my own pasta?

It's easy enough to make, a bit of time is needed for the process though. You'll be used to kneading already, or if you've got a bread machine, can you knead pasta dough in it? We've seen a rise in pound shop places in recent years, will we soon be seeing a rise in popularity of the shops that sell ...

Re: Make my own pasta?

Do use an egg recipe, that's pasta. If you try to save on eggs and use a recipe using water, it's just a dough, which is alright but might not pass through the pasta machine properly, assuming you're using one. If you haven't got a pasta machine yet, make simple pasta ribbons and sheets by rolling a...

Re: White Vinegar

Would brown vinegar cause problems in the wash. Morrisons have a non-specific brown vinegar for 21p/568ml and T***o have a 568ml bottle of white distilled vinegar for 39p.

Try 1 tablespoon of dishwashing detergent, 1 litre of water and 2 teaspoons light cooking oil - need to shake frequently to keep it mixed
Will DP liquid soap do the trick just as well?

Re: Laptop batteries

I've been collecting ordinary used batteries for a couple of years in a specially-provide bag. When I had a look to see how it was filling up I could see that some of them had become coated in something, will they still be useful for recycling, I don't use batteries a lot so I wasn't keeping a frequ...

Re: Laundry detergents

I put some things there weren't really dirty in the wash recently without detergent and on a high temperature with a few drops of essential oil for the rinse and on extra spin and they came out perfectly clean. I wouldn't do it with items that need proper washing, but it's worth considering occasion...

Re: Can certain plants prevent fruit tree problems if put under the trees

I was having a look at the tree that has some blossoms on already and I've found that the cat has been using it as a scratching post, well, the trunk isn't that thick and the weather has been rainy recently, so the pest problem might turn out to be a moot point if the trunk rots with something. If o...

Re: Can you tell what the seeds are?

That's a site I'm going to spend some time looking through. I'll sow the seeds and see what happens and if there isn't enough room I'll have miniwhateverit is or microgreens.

Can you tell what the seeds are?

I've got a sachet of seeds with spipica printed on it, but not the envelope. The the beige seeds are a bit bigger than radish seeds. I could plant them and see what turns up but I'd like to know what to expect.

Re: New season veg

I've got some lamb lettuce that I pop onto the plate or into a pan of something, I don't use it like a side vegetable but in small amounts . I have to believe it's very nutritious because it doen't taste of much despite descriptions of it having a nutty flavour. can taste buds degenerate with age li...

Re: Can certain plants prevent fruit tree problems if put under the trees

I'd like to use up something I already have, would smearing Vaseline over the trunk do the same job or maybe wrapping cellotape around it with the sticky side out would do the trick.
