    I was thinking to myself earlier, 'if only I had something I could use to harden the skin of my feet'. :hmmmm2: Fortunately, after rummaging through my medicine cabinet, I came across a bottle that promised to do just that! Unfortunately, it's a little old.




    What do you reckon? If I scrape off the dusty crystalline layer from the outside of the bottle, and vent off some of the gas that seems to have built up inside, do you think this stuff will still do the trick?

    Maybe, or you'll just get a rash. How old is this bottle anyway?

    I don't know for sure. Older than some of today's TSR members though, I'd wager.

    I'd give it a pass, unless someone can assure me it's okay to use.

    What, in the background? That's my kitchen, hence the tea and coffee.

    What are the ingredients and ask a chemistry bod about what happens to those ingredients over time:dontknow:

    Also, shouldn't this really be in health?:confused: Or maybe I'm just desperate to move threads.:rofl:

    Oh I get it now, it's late at night hence the darkness and you just have a cluttered worktop! It genuinely looked like some suspicious substances were being prepared in there.:curious:

    You just want to have more SLs in one thread than any other flavour of user. One/two was enough!:headfire:

    It's likely to be too old to be any use anymore, you can buy it from a chemist still it's just a bit tricky to get hold of sometimes
