Anyone seen those spray paints they have had recently for 2.50€ in grey? Everywhere I check there seems to be an empty shelf left :/

What batteries would ye recommend?

I do too and it is really effective, it was actually a pharmacist who recommended it, not a friend or anything, they were pretty much turning away a paying customer.

Ikea have really high end rechargeable batteries, they are rumoured to be panasonic panaloops rebranded. Not cheap but way cheaper than the panasonics and good value.

That pharmacist who advocated salt and water instead of an over the counter mouthwash is a very honest pharmacist.

Another product which is a waste of money is Lemsip. A slice of lemon in hot water and two paracetamol is just as good at a fraction of the cost. I think Lemsip also contains artificial sweeteners.

It tastes absolutely horrible aswell. If I get a cold I squeeze a fresh orange into a cup, pour hot water in and add a spoon of honey. Tastes lovely and really helps.

The Dealz Kodacs Alkaline are brilliant - I use them a lot and always have a packet handy- you usually only get 4 in a pack. The zinc ones are landfill.

Ikea are even better - but I believe that this year they will no longer sell them, only selling rechargeable from now on.

Ikea are supposed to be one of the best rechargeable brands (possibly they are rebranded top end eneloop's link ) but I gave up on rechargeables a long time ago after 50 euros of Maplins best expired and went bad on me after leaving them a year unused.

I had them, they're alright. They're cheaper almost everywhere though, if even by a cent

I got a smart light bulb today in dealz, it was 8 euro. Most I've seen online have been screw only, these were bayonets which are what's in the ceiling already. Also works with the app I already have installed so a plus keeping the Chinese apps to a minimum.

Oh, they've the dishwasher flavour Dime bars back? Those are my fav's.

If they only get the Cif flavoured Turkish Delight back, I'd be in heaven.
