If you have pots or pans with burnt on bits that wonít come off even after soaking, pour water in the pot, put it on the hob and bring to the boil, when it reaches the boil, put some bicarbonate of soda into it and immediately turn the heat down to between a simmer and boil (you will need to do this as the water will rise after the bicarbonate goes in) and keep it like this for a few minutes. The burnt on bits will lift off.
If you live in Edinburgh (or EH postcode area I think) get yourself a Library card.
Gives you access to loads of online material for FREE.
Best one, and what I use regularly, is access to most UK daily newspapers and a whole host of weekly, monthly magazines covering many subjects. These are accessed via a couple of Apps - PressReader and/or RBDigital.
Hereís a link to get you started for those in Edinburgh.
