    how did you do that and make the pushy downy bit work on it too?
    hiya, i had one of the types with a little fan in. i just very slowly poured the aftershave over the top spongey bit and it got absorbed and dripped into the bottle part.
    hope this makes sense.
  • Don't use the stuff prefer to smell
    Treat everyday as your last one on earth! and one day you will be right.

    Spray behind the radiators - when they come on you'll get a nice smell around the room.

  • I use it in my windscreen washer bottle! My only worry is, if it's doing THAT to the dead flies on my windscreen, what on earth is it doing to my partner's face...?:rolleyes:
  • Put a drop in the water chamber of a steam iron and freshen the ironing
  • just a quicky - be careful putting anything bar water & screenwash in your car's washer bottle - remember when you spray the windscreen it also goes onto the metal of the car and could cause some damage to the paintwork.
