to tell me what a piece of piss Chicken and Sweetcorn soup is to make! It takes 5 minutes and costs fuck all. I have being buying this stuff you know? With ACTUAL money.

One idle google and 10 minutes later dd and I have a pan full for lunch, it's lovely.

It was bad enough finding out about cleaning washing machines, and Veet to unclog hairy plug holes.... and now you failed to tell me this angry

Well you horrible lot, what else have you being holding out on, and keeping from me?????

You can stop hair getting into the plugholes in the first place by getting a Dossil.

Mrsjay Mon 27-Feb-12 13:29:52

Marking my place so I can get back to this recipe. drool

I presume you all know about the correct way to open a banana?

The joy it gave me when I tried it out...

<needs to get a life emoticon>

LackaDAISYcal Mon 27-Feb-12 13:31:10

Yup, spray onto a soft cloth and wipe away

I have a book of "extraordinary uses for ordinary things" and WD40 is one of the most useful things in it, excepting vinegar <nods wisely>

LackaDAISYcal Mon 27-Feb-12 13:33:00

Oh yes Gnu....monkeys have been doing it that way for ever!

<eagerly awaits banana opening training>

My DD loves opening bananas like a monkey.

Now... where did DH put the WD40...?

And why can't any of you make me actually do the stuff that IS on my to do list?!

What is the correct way to open a banana? hmm

RalphGnu Mon 27-Feb-12 13:40:37

Norman, 5inthebed, this will change your life. Not really.

Gently pinch the non-stalk end and hey presto! The banana opens!

RalphGnu Mon 27-Feb-12 13:41:46

I don't even like bananas but I bought one just to test this out!

RalphGnu Mon 27-Feb-12 13:42:33

When I say I bought one, what I actually mean is I tried it on a banana at Tesco, whistled in amazement and walked away

Really? That's amazing! grin

Iamweasel Mon 27-Feb-12 13:43:34

Need more banana info

Iamweasel Mon 27-Feb-12 13:44:27

Which bit opens? The stalk end?

Mine didn't hmm

I'm putting this down as one of my favourite xposts of the day!

RalphGnu Mon 27-Feb-12 13:45:48

No, not the stalk end weasel, t'other end.

If anyone knows how to get black moldy stuff out of washing machine detergent drawer PLS TELL ME
It's probably really simple but I just don't know sad

RalphGnu Mon 27-Feb-12 13:48:28

Remove drawer and wash in soapy water, tantrums.

5inthebed Mon 27-Feb-12 13:49:34

Well who knew?! Have eaten two bananas, ust to make sure that the first one wasn't a fluke.

ViviPru Mon 27-Feb-12 13:52:01

Anyone know how to stop my fridge smelling?

I've cleaned it out thoroughly with bicarb dissolved in water, ditto all shelves etc. I've left a pot of bicarb in there, and two lumps of charcoal that we've been replacing every other day. Its been 2 weeks and it still smells.

Luckily its the auxiliary fridge, but I have a shitload of auxiliary beverage I'd like to put in it so any suggestions welcome please.

robino Mon 27-Feb-12 13:52:25

Seriously? The banana thing? I bloody hate bananas, was verging on the phobic before I had children and decided that bananas must be A Good Thing and I would feed them to the small ones. Does it really work?. If so, why the hell has NOBODY informed me?

The drawer won't come out?!?!
