    Talking about umbrellas - anyone have a local source for those cheap clear see through plastic umbrellas you see everywhere in Japan that are small and cover you like a cone of silence? I'm wishing I had bought back a dozen or so.

    Is it hard to cross the Rubicon? And how do you get back?

    Well, we both learned something new today - both of us now know that there are two Rubicon Rivers in entirely different countries.

    As I said the group mind that constitutes the knowledge bank for this thread would put Steven Hawking to shame.

    Any suggestions on the best way to clean collars and cuffs?

    I usually make a solution of Oxiclean or Napisan and water and soak the shirt(s) overnight. This normally gets the stains out.

    Dr fxh your required in surgery.


    No scrubbing of collars or cuffs?

    Use Napisan for whites and what ever it is from Aldi.

    No, I usually don't need to. The solution I make is two scoops of Napisan to a litre or so of water so it's quite concentrated.
