Plastering

Hi Claire Sorry to say, your builder was probably named John Wayne. No! plaster should have a reasonably smooth finish prior to painting. You should never have to sand it down. With regards to your lumpy cracked plaster, it sounds to me as if it wasn't properly mixed. When wet it gives the appearanc...

Hello Chris
Are you referring to tiling? What would you like to know?
I chose to call myself Lemonade as it's almost an anagram of my name.

Limescale in Kettle & Cleaning the loo.

Hello TommyP. There are many good kettle descalers out there such as Viakal, etc. Unfortunately these products will not prevent the limescale from building up again and again. Limescale (or Calcium) buildup is due to hard water. The best solution is to install an electronic de-scaler to your incomin...

Hello Lisa Having read your original post "Does anyone know the Kyaw-win's?" I did a bit of detective work. Unfortunately it may be deemed as immoral for me to tell you their address and due to the Data Protection Act, I could be breaking the law to tell you my findings. However if I could find them...

Chimney Breast

Hi Jewlz
No please feel free to contradict. I'm sure Libbi will value your input.
As I said without seeing it and actually inspecting the structure, it's very difficult to tell.

Noise (spitting & issues with police)

Hello to those who've contributed to this thread. As most of you'll know, I'm not from Sydenham, but I too suffer the odd "Early Morning Call" at 2AM by those (to put it politely) inconsiderate individuals. Sometimes I feel like stalking them on their way home, then when they fall asleep, giving the...

Chimney Breast

Hello Libbi That's a very tricky one, especially without actually looking at it. Normally it is virtually impossible to just knock down the chimney breast if you're at the bottom as the upper floor's section will be built upon it. Furthermore the flue will be running all the way to the chimney stack...

Hello Everyone This evening I went out armed with my torch and bottle of water along to Sydenham Hill Woods for the Bat & Moth Safari. I thought I'd provide you with a review. I got there at about 8.45pm, just before it started to get dark. At 9.00pm the tour started. There were about 55-60 people a...

Disclean

Hello Annie Yes indeed it is meant as a mortar cleaner, but it really is fantastic for removing limescale, rust, etc. I can give you some insider knowledge...There are companies out there who clean Automatic Carwashes. They use Disclean to remove limescale and algae off the carwash plastics, fibregl...
