    So what things do you get away with when the Mrs is not about and your left to your own devices.

    I recently had to use the people carrier for work as the van blew a hose.
    More info on that here

    Whilst doing this I noticed the inter cooler on my van was sooo clogged up it might as well not be there.

    So i took it out tonight when I got back from work to give it a clean up.

    You are a braver man than me!

    Drink as much as you can - get down you neck mate - it will numb the pain if she comes home early and catches you! :doh:

    "dishwasher rape - abuse"


    You are dead if she catches you! :laughing:

    Concur, though I have done it before, I usually take the bulk of grime off first!

    @Tray I really do hope it cleans up & doesn't kill your dishwasher in the process :laughing:

    It’s only oil and flies and road grime and bits of a pigeon I hit about 8 months ago.
    Well the Mrs is away so I’ll have to hope there are enough plates pots etc.... till she gets back!
    Or takeaways
    Or the landlord will have to replace it sharpish when I start calling every 5 mins.
    “I’ve no idea why it’s broke I’ve only used it following the manufacturers instructions”
    “Mrs away parts cleaning mode”
    Should be a setting, maybe I should register the idea

    I had to buy a parts washer to stop my wife putting motorbike bits in the dishwasher!!!

    I have no real objection to it, other than it eats the ali
