Boxed wine.......when you come to the end of the box and no more will come out...press open spout and blow into bag untill it will take no more...result is that you will get at least one more glass of wine out of the box if not more

Swedish TV are showing How Clean is Your House? - one of the ladies said sour milk is great for polishing brass objects (but you must remove the sour milk afterwards, otherwise)

Well I never...

I take the bladder out and wring it out over a glass - there ain't nothing left in there by the time I'm done with it...
