Thanx for the info on the metholated spirits being available at Guardian Pharmacy.....will get it next week then. I use it to clean the ceramic floor tiles ......... put some in water and then mop, comes up very clean.

Also thanx for advice on purchase of bedlinen, today went to Robinson's and bought just what I needed. Big benefit was that they had a good sale on and purchased items at 50% off!!!
