    Three years ago when we had a very long stretch of very cold weather everything in my camper froze except the Bacardi........ Shampoo, washing up liquid, blue stuff for the loo, coke, cider, shower gel, disinfectant, conditioner - anything that had been liquid became a solid block (apart from the Bacardi).

    I fetched it all in and put in bowls to thaw, luckily I'd realised before there was a mess in the van to clear up and only a couple of things had burst their containers.

    It had never happened before and not so far since, but I check every couple of days now if it is very cold.
