    I once saw a maintenance guy from a water company clean a water dispenser with chlorine. I had a chat with him and he explained that the chlorine breaks down in sunlight making it safe to use after (Yes the dispenser was near a window).

    Since that time I've soaked my bottles in a chlorine solution for a few hours, then wash them in dish washing detergent.

    Take off, nuke the entire site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

    False teeth cleaning tablets. You can get a tube of 20 from Tesco for 59p. Fill bottle with warm water chuck in a tablet and it will fizz up as it dissolves. Leave for half an hour rinse out, let it dry and it will be fresh as a daisy. Works on drink bladders as well.

    Hey des, have you ever been mistaken for a man. :lol:
    The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.
