    Re: Black Friday

    It's not the sale I object to, it's the reason why we are having the sale. What has American Black Friday got to do with New Zealand?:confused:

    Re: Black Friday

    Thank you for that Smithie.

    So what has that got to do with us? We don't have a Thanksgiving holiday - I don't even know what that is - so why do we have a Black Friday when we don't have...

    Re: How to remove water stains off tiles

    We tried using 30 second spot remover again - applied it to the stain and left it for half an hour then scrubbed it off and that has worked. It seems that the answer is to leave it on for a while.
