I have been beating the sh*t out of it on a rock by the stream in my rural Hants village for two years using a mix of bleach and napalm.

It's fine...

I only tried it once but that sparked the huge oil fire at Hemel hempstead last year so I shan't be trying that again!

One question: "Beware of Dhobi".

What is Dhobi and why should I be wary of it?

ouch says:

We fear what we do not understand.

I do not understand Dhobi.

Therefore I fear it.

I could look it up I suppose. I bet its the beast that lives under said rock...

"...Dhobi's usually run door to door collecting dirty linen from households. After a day or two, they return the linen washed, sometimes starched and ironed. Dhobis were the forerunners to modern professional dry cleaners. Since the dhobi charges are much lower than dry cleaners, they are popular with most households. Dhobis are often pictured with a donkey as their beast of burden carrying the bales of linen on its back.

Each dhobi marks a unique symbol or character on garments belonging to a particular household. This is marked in black indelible ink to prevent it from being washed off. Dhobis may wash the clothes themselves or outsource it to dhobis who only wash clothes..."

Perhaps not so frightening...

to be on the safe side, please refrain form all ironing, that way any accidents will be avoided and our universe will continue unimploded. Thank you all.
