Three simple ideas

Some sauce always sticks to the bottom of sauce bottles so place the bottle, upside down, in a mug of boiling water and it all quickly drops to the bottom. If it has gone very hard then place the bottle normal side up first, then upside down.

If you don’t like to wear gloves when you garden yet hate getting dirt under your nails, scrape your nails over had soap to fill up the under nail area. Then when you wash the soap will have stopped most of the dirt from getting in and any that does will be easier to wash out.

Old CD’s scare off birds from growing plants as with the shining outer and the centre hole they look like eyes. You may have noticed that you can walk past a bird table without looking and not frighten the birds on them, but if you look at them they are off. Paint an eye around the hole, and /or mount two together (glue the edges) for maximum effect

Great idea ofr keeping your nails clean after being in the garden Peter, will save a lot of scrubbing. And finally a use for all those useless CDs that clutter up the newspapers.



That's what I'll definitely do with my sauce bottles from now on. Thank you Peter - always a source of inspiration (and no that wasn't meant to be a pun, I promise) :-D
