This vegan ice cream is a great alternative not only for vegans, but for people who are lactose intolerant. I topped it with a magic chocolate sauce and the photographs are just how the chocolate fell over the dome.
Years ago my cousin mentioned that sterri-nappi made for a great stain removal for white washing. Not only does it work but it is much cheaper than the commercial stain removers. When the drought started my friends and I discussed all sorts of water saving ideas. Nadia told me that she soaks her whites in stain remover overnight and then does a rinse cycle the following morning. I did not go this route, but rather bought Dave more white socks to do fewer loads. But, this must have stuck in the back of my mind. Since the drought our one toilet has operated using grey water only. However, grey water leaves a rim of soap scum and it has to be cleaned properly. I recently found a product that claims to work.
You fill the cistern with clean water and a good dose of the liquid and leave it overnight. I started off by pouring the jug of water I collect when getting the hot water to flow through to the shower, into a bucket. When the bucket was full I put that into the cistern with the cleaning solution, but it did not get it as clean as I expected it to. The next time I started collecting water I remembered the sterri-nappi soaking tip, and put my facecloth in to soak. When that water was poured into the cistern it cleaned it straight away. I was so pleased about this as it really is killing two birds with one stone in getting everything sparkly clean. Do you use your grey water for anything?
