    Didn't know where to put this but it's slightly cleaning related so, I forgot to buy kitchen roll and now have a brand new white toilet roll on the kitchen holder, it's paper, it's new and it's clean so why do i feel not right about it.
    Anyone else done this?

    Yep. Loadsa times. LOADS!!!

    But then, I'm a bloke! What else would you expect?

    I've also used free sales magazines as "paper plates".

    When a "plate" is dirty - turn the page!

    My son's dirty nappy bucket smells really bad. When every you open it up to put another dirty nappy into it you get a drift of smelly nappy. Do you know of any natural and of course cheap ways of making it smalll better? What I am asking for is a natural air freshener.

    Thanks

    Hiya, welcome to MoneySaving :)

    And YES, of course we do!

    Hang on a second while I get the right place for you...

    ..there's a sticky post at the top of our board called Save Zillions on Cleaning... which has a number of links in the Vinegar section entitled "Odour removal" and the even more engaging "Plugholes and Nappies"

    The link to that page is ---> Click Here

    Used to spend ages cleaning the patio with a pressure washer. Now I just buy five litres of bleach from LIDL, dilute with two parts water and spread it over patio with a brush.

    I soon learned that you don't have to brush hard to get rid of green stuff. Just let the bleach do its work and wait for the next rain to wash it away.

    Used to take me an hour with the pressure washer now takes five minutes



    I use to use a power washer but found it eventually was stripping away the surface coating, as I have this mass produced York Riven Paving!!!

    About three of four summers ago, I also found using bleach was the best way.
