Old newspaper makes a cloudy vase clear again
Do you have a glass vase that looks unattractively cloudy? You can clean it by filling it up with torn up strips of newspaper and cold water. Leave to stand for two days, then empty out the contents - and your vase will be as new!

Be careful when buying fruit
Look at the labels
1) If the label has four digits, any that begin with 3 or 4 means that the fruit was intensively grown i.e. chemical fertiliser was used.
2) If the product has five digits and the first is a 9, this indicates that the product was grown in the traditional way i.e. no pesticides or fertilisers were used.
3) If the product has five digits and the first is an 8, the product has been genetically modified and you should put it back.
