Thank you xx
Thank you xx
I do enjoy eating you and you have served me as a breakfast cereal countless times during my life to date. More recently, I have introduced you to my son who enjoys you mixed with fruit (and his fingers!).
However, I feel I need to ask why on earth are you so hard to remove from cereal bowls once you have been eaten? Or indeed anything you come into contact with once you have been covered in milk? It is almost impossible to clean off bowls or surfaces that you have encountered once you have become dried on – I need a power washer to remove you!
I have also found that wiping you off my son’s face is really difficult, you get so ground into skin and hair – such a nightmare! Cannot really use a power washer on his face though! Instead I try to wipe as I go, which is not easy with a baby who does not want his face washed at the end of a meal – let alone every couple of minutes!
So the way I see it:
Weetabix + milk = adhesive with the power of super glue!
What makes a normal everyday breakfast cereal turn into an adhesive? How do you do this?
Another cereal with your type of super adhesive power is cornflakes, once they have dried out onto your cereal bowl they are also nigh on impossible to remove! I think some cereal manufacturers could do a sideline trade selling their products as super glue, because that’s the kind of strength we are talking about here! I wonder if anyone has ever tested the adhesiveness of cornflakes or weetabix? Hmmmmm…..food for thought!
Obviously, if the cereal bowls are washed out straight after use this will remove all traces of you immediately, no problem. However, not everyone adheres to this and that is where the problems arise.
I think that maybe all of your cereal boxes should come with a warning, informing the consumer of the consequences of leaving weetabix to dry out, and to therefore advise customers to rinse their cereal bowls straight away! In as big a text as possible please, because maybe this would encourage my OH to rinse after eating because he often leaves his cereal bowl with weetabix residue inside!
Thanks for listening.
A firm believer in the eat and rinse philosophy!!
Karen over at / Brighten Mum-Teenage Angst/> had the brilliant idea of setting up a Friday bog roll on a blog roll. What a great idea!! Lol. I say this with more than the usual enthusiasm as it seems I started Karen’s ball (bog) rolling by coming up with the title whilst commenting on a photo in this weeks Gallery. I can only credit the marvellous Nickie over at /Typecast/> for her inspiring photograph of her toilet roll collection. I say collection because to have that many out on display is just showing off quite frankly!!
So here are my entries for the bog roll on a blog roll:
First picture shows our very ‘ahem’ posh toilet roll holder complete with a rusty bottom. Now don’t get jealous of that type of high class customising, it took a lot of a bathroom dampness over the last 18 months to achieve that finish! You will also notice that the top roll is a different type of loo roll from the two beneath it. This is because I was down to my last roll this morning and after shopping earlier we have more hurrah! This new toilet paper claims to be bigger than your average roll so instead if buying 8 rolls get the same over 4! Better for the environment then? We will see how long it lasts soon enough.
I am not a toilet roll snob I usually get whatever is on special, although I prefer not to buy the basics like I did as a student, as even though they are cheaper, they are rougher and you get through them quicker so spend as much in the end as if you just bought average priced loo roll.
The second photo is the hiding place for my spare toilet rolls, as unlike some people I could mention I do not have such a huge display area for all of mine lol
