Was thinking last night (now there's a first!) how good it would be to have a tips & hints section.

You know the kind of thing I mean - how to get red wine stains out using white wine etc.

We buy and use (waste) a lot of products to do the same thing, when Granny's methods are often best.

I know you could put these under various headings, but they get lost never to be found again.

I think, under its own heading in a sticky, it would be a useful resource, attractive to new members and a hell of a lot better than word association!

Sounds good. The Trade Secrets books is very useful for this kind of thing. Makes a good Christmas pressie as well.

Should this be a sticky or a part of the main site. Perhaps both?

Either way it is a great idea.

I think it's a great idea, only need to specify that people should only put up stuff they've tried themselves/seen first hand. There's an awful lot of rubbish knocking about on these kind of things in among the genuinely effective stuff and I've seen some of these kind of lists (to which I have a mild addiction, hence the Trade Secrets book! ) turn in to random selections of old wives tales .

It could easily go under "Have you tried"...on the main site and I think it probably falls under the "reduce" bit of "reduce, re-use, recycle", as DS & Jema say as a sticky.

Myabe we have it as a sticky, and grab the best of it into the main site as it expands?
