I'm struggling to believe that ... or maybe I'm just not reading the nuance in the same way that you wrote it!!
Yes this is wrong! 6% to 1.5% you need 1 part solution to 3 parts water.

that would be 3% wouldn't it? a spoon of solution and a spoon of water would be half strength(3%)- wouldnt it? icon_scratch

I wish I'd seen this before my trip to Leeds last week. I went to the market just for nosey remembering an earlier post on the subject. I spotted them on two stalls but confronted with several types I chickened out. They were selling like hot cakes. Now I think I know why :lol:

Well I've not been to Darlington but I would imagine that you could find some there? Most big towns and cities have good fruit and veg stalls in the markets that sell them.
