A few years ago was driving along that part of Spencer Road after picking up decorating materials including two tubs of emulsion from B&Q, I had wanted to put them in the boot, but my wife insisted on putting them on the rear seats saying she would watch them, however around this point of the road the car in front decided to slam on his brakes to let out a car from the garages near to the where the white van is, anyhow I had to do the same resulting in that one of the tubs flew off the rear seat with the lid coming off, most of the ten litres of Dulux Brilliant White Emulsion went onto the back of the drivers seat, into the organiser and the footwell, took an age to clean up too. Typical really, especially how you can struggle to get the lids off those paint tubs. Could laugh about it later, but not at the time.

Nothing to do with Mick's photo but I know he won't mind me adding to Cyril's story re tins of paint. A few weeks ago my husband was refused entry onto a bus at Wigan Bus Station because he was carrying a tin of paint. He was told substances such as paint can't be carried on a bus. Luckily we have a choice of three buses to get to where we live and he got on another one no trouble at all! The irony is that had the paint been in a plastic carrier the driver wouldn't have known he was carrying paint, but we try not to use plastic and Peter had refused a plastic bag because he could carry the tin of paint by its handle. You just can't win!

I bet you think of that incident every time you pass that way Cyril... It must have been awful at the time!
No use crying over spilt paint!

A lot of people spill milk in there cars, and when you have cleaned it all up you are still left with a sour milk smell

True, Mick. The smell of sour milk is one of the hardest to get rid of.

Have you tried a small amount of lavender cat litter from the pet shop
or a handful of baking soda? Just leave it on for a week then hoover it
off.

Youre right
Spilt milk is a sod to clean up.
As a living organism its smell lingers for ages unless cleaned up properly.

That's ok Xpat but what if any cats find their way in the car . What a calamity that would be....;o))
