Re: Mouse and Rat droppings

You can get the disposable masks from builders merchants, although you will need to know the code number ( check the information on the boxes) for the correct type of mask . Generally masks are colour coded , well some masks anyway , and most in the merchants would be blue general purpose non toxic ...

Re: Mouse and Rat droppings

When I was being trained as a carpenter I was told that we shouldn't put nails in our mouths because of nails being stored in warehouse where rats and mice were present.

Re: The home brew thread

Another variation of forge's recipes is to use werthers originals ( the original hard ones) to produce a toffee vodka that is perhaps a little too easy to drink. I've also used crab apples and orange to flavour vodkas ( seperately not together). I must admit that I would rather use a better quality ...

Re: Urban foraging

I don't know if this really counts but today I picked up a small bag of potatoes from a customers bin. Well actually there is nearly always decent food in his bin when I go round, last time a fortnight ago it was a bag of pots, onions and radishes. I also rescued a part bottle of bleech from his oth...

Re: The home brew thread

Made my very first wine years ago now , blackberry and I used a gallon whisky bottle to ferment it in. The opening is just the same size as a demijohn. In my time I've made wines from fruits, flowers and root vegatables but often come back to apple and blackberry. Currently I have some plum and cher...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week

Re: battery

Reading some of the comments it may seem not all batteries are the same but it may be worth the time taking an old flat one apart just to see. I have taken apart cordless drill batteries , emergency lights and such like to find they contain unlabelled rechargables cells , AA for the drills and large...
