    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.

    Yep, that's true. Old spice caused the paint on my face to bubble and blister.

    For a laugh, sneak upstairs at the in-laws. Then find her fave scent and mix it in, she will go beserk. Worth the aggro I bet!! Only joking of course honest

    Dab some on a cotton wool ball and put it in the vacuum bag, voila home made vacuum fresheners, each time you vacuum it fragrances the room.

    If it has a built in spray, use it in the bathroom or loo instead of a deodorizer, you only need a couple of puffs.
    If not, fill up an old spray bottle with it and do the same.
    It gets rid of nasty smells a treat!!

  • I buy purfume from the pound shop and leave it in the bathroom and every time the loo is used my family give it a squrt it lasts ages and our bathroom smells beautiful
    You can also put some essential oil on a cotton wool ball and put it behined your radiator in any room
  • I soak a bit of cotton wool or loo paper with unwanted aftershave or perfume and put in the vaccun cleaner bag,when you vac it makes the whole place smell luverly,alot cheaper and healthier than plug ins
