Re: Laundry detergents

I've only used own brands as normal ones since I could not see any extra value in the branded ones. However, I only felt like commenting as the last straw was real disappointment in one of the pricier branded liquids. Now, I've always used the powders and not typically conditioners, so I thought I'd...

Laundry detergents

I've heard that there are less phosphatey type things in washing powders so that the makers don't have to put some sort of caustic symbol on their packaging (so it looks better, not offputting to consumers). This is probably why for a long time now washing powders don't seem to work as well as they ...

Re: Buy and sell precious metals?

I'd rather find a buyer for my silver coins... thanks for the link though, but I don't drive so I won't be able to go driving around the country on a treasure hunt, even thought I like the idea of it.

Meat for mincing

As it's been in a cupboard for a few years now, I thought I might try mincing some meat with my cast iron clamping mincer. I'd be making beef burgers, so is there a particular type of cut to use - my thinking is that as it's being minced, even tough cuts could be used.

Mobile numbers

I have a list of mobile numbers without names - are there any way of finding out whose they are without ringing them?

Foreign language

Is there a term for when someone tries to be clever and pretends they don't understand the language someone is speaking in order to try and avoid having to do something or hope they assume or say something else that they prefer, or give up?

Buy and sell precious metals?

I came across a website that showed a graph going up and down according to gold and silver prices - is it possible to be involved in this type of trading from home?

Turmeric

Does anyone know what happened in the end between US and India after the former's attempt to copyright use of turmeric whose properties had been known and used for for centuries if not millennia in India - it was a couple of decades ago I don't know why I thought of it now.

Re: Guilty pleasures

lol - I forgot mine!
Broken chocolate digestives in a mug with cold milk poured over, spooned out - wheaty mush and crisp chocolate. Only once in a while though.

Re: How do you water potatoes through fabric?

Is it possible to grow potatoes by planting them however deep, leaving the soil level, then covering with newspaper and allowing the greenery to grow through a cut in the newspaper and leaving it at that until the spuds are ready to harvest?
