    Items with an unintended practical use

    Thought of items that have a use that the manufacturer never intended?

    Microwave or iron to dry clothes.

    The bath for keeping drinks cold.

    Others?

    If anyone saw the UK version of Big Brother I think they'd agree with me that the manufacturers of that champagne bottle would've been slightly surprised at the use Kinga found for it!!!!

    I was seriously wanting to do that. I don't think charcoal clothing's that fashionable though.

    It'd be mad to put it in a freshly emptied bread maker. mmmm imagine that. The smell of freshly baked bread.

    It'd probably be good for everyone else smelling it but you. Unless you did it to a burqa (or whatever people call the muslim headscarf)

    Fair dos, but I think Kinga's performance was on a strictly amateur basis tho! & actually that may say more about Ms Jameson's father than anything else! I know I wouldn't be comfortable knowing the baby I craddled as a newborn now made money by doing it with strangers in front of a film crew!

    Call me a prude if you must.....

    Wheel Barrows - good at taking back beers back to the building site after work on a hot summer's day (bet Marc would like working there ) - so goes a story I once heard.
