    Steph – Some you win and some you lose! Looks like this one is a loser! ;(

    Not a loser..I’ve just read it…seems interesting.

    As for vinegar: I recently purchased a book with a claimed 1001 uses for vinegar…and my sister gave me another. Use that is!

    I’ve just remembered another one but must try and check it out first… not practically you understand.
