    ...as in not very big. Not, um, anything to do with loos. ;-)

    I had to remove my hob to fix a gas leak and found that the rubbery gasket around the hob was covered in that icky, hard to remove, dried on kitchen grease.

    After trying a number of products and methods ineffectually, I popped the whole gasket in a clean milk flagon with some sugar soap and some hot water.

    After some vigorous shaking and then leaving it to stand for a while, I took it out and rinsed it and apart from a couple of spots that rubbed off easily, it came out squeaky clean, literally.

    I. Would assume its either an empty carton or a milk jug could even be one off the big chrome ones some caravaners use.:Rofl1:

    Well I had always believed that it was the proper term for what most people call a screw top plastic milk carton but google doesn't seem to agree with me. ;-)
