Trying to but it is difficult. We have gone back to solid soap rather than liquid soap dispensers/shower gels and I use a shampoo bar instead of liquid shampoo (Tom doesn't need to, no hair! :-D).

I did most of what you suggested but I love the idea of Worcestershire sauce! I was confused by the 'mousse' - take it off or leave it on. In the end I removed it as it had a greenish tinge I didn't like the look of.

Glad you found someone local. We are just about to take delivery of a 'corde' to store in the leanto. Hopefully it will last us around two years as non residents who like a blazing fire! Sitting n front of one now on this rainy, windy evening - bliss!
