    Whenever we get close to a hosepipe ban, every "B-rate" celebrity gardener and water company spokesperson are on the TV telling us that used bathwater and washing up water is the ideal stuff to keep are lawns green and to stop our plants from wilting.

    Not sure what to do there - it's a bit of a grey area.

    On several German sites we visit the ONLY acceptable way to dispose of your grey is on the surrounding vegetation !

    Well given that 80%+ ( from memory ) of dust in a house is caused by human skin, I reckon most of us are eating some bits of others of us at some stage ( urrrrghhhh !! But true !! )

    In the hose pipe ban of the early 80' s I diverted all our household waste water to garden irrigation. Any human waste has nitrogen content which all plants need. Coming from farming stock we regularly diverted the waste suckers to drop their contents on our fields for crop food. Excellent results every time. !

    If you dump it in the hedge how can the local water company tin it and sell it to Sainsbury's as Basics Mushroom soup?
