    The rear wheel arch protrudes into the base of our wardrobe and being the coldest place gets covered in condensation. The arch is plastic and I wonder if someone could suggest the best type of insulation to cover it with?

    If there's nothing else down there put a false base in the wardrobe about an inch above the wheelarch then stuff the area below with loft insulation. If you need to cover just the wheelarch itself use inch-thick dense foam & glue it to the plastic - it will be sufficiently flexible to follow the curve of the wheelarch.

    Some ventilation may help too

    Was thinking about doing something like that with ours in the bathroom, taking the cover off and spraying it with aerosol foam.
