I Can't Believe It's Toilet Cleaner!

I was reading the stuff on the side of the loo cleaner [as you do] II'd heard of  E-coli, Staphylococcus and enterococcus. But Pseudomonas aeruginosa was a new one. It's not quite as bad as the others - but its name means 'false unit, aged and wrinkled'. I do hope I don't turn into one of those. Then I got to the end of the description and giggled. Do Wilko have proof readers? I mean, who would want an unbelieving tank?
We have a dehumidifier here at Cornerstones - when the property is empty for long periods, we are concerned about damp building up. Its very efficient - but the drainage pipe is currently in need of attention. Consequently the water collects in a reservoir at the bottom. Mindful Use of Water came up in the Green Living Project - so I was speculating about what to do with it. I knew it was not safe to drink, but didn't want to throw it away. However, it is supposed to be Very Good for watering orchids. My orchids are currently in the tender care of orchid expert Jenny whilst I am away from Ferndown. I shall consult her on my return.
"We can always use it in the steam iron" said Bob - this distilled water is better than the local tapwater, which causes major limescale problems. I told him that next time he ironed [!]he could try it out. I've put it in this gorgeous bottle [Jon gave me this when he'd emptied it of the original contents - Orkney Single Malt] Do you like my label? I know it isn't technically accurate, and the chemists in the family will spot the error - but It says what it is...


  1. Haha! Very clever!!! I love that joke and what an excellent use of the water!!! We both have chemical symbols on our blog today- weird coincidence! I'm going to send my Dad your picture!

  2. Kezzie, your post today is lovely. What a great card. And thanks for the heads up about the skywriting petition. I've signed.

  3. I love the idea of a 'sceptic tank' ... I'm glad ours just accepts things and carries on.

  4. Ha! I was just pleased to know that 50+ years since my last chemistry class I still remembered FE was the symbol for iron.

  5. Love your label! :D Very clever! As for "sceptic" tanks - I'm glad I don't have them! LOL.


Always glad to hear from you - thanks for stopping by!
