Works for cans and bottles, but would probably work for other stuff too
Just wrap the can or bottle in *wet* tissue or bog roll, and put in fridge
(or leave outside in this weather). 15-20 minutes later it's gone from room
temperature to ice cold.
Works a treat!
Never tried that, I might do now!
I keep taking cans of drink upstairs & forgetting about them but leaving
them outside on the window sill in wet paper does the trick when I can't be
arsed to go back down to get a cold one.
I would like to have been a fly on the wall at the board meeting when
they argued that Hotpoint was a suitable brand for a refrigerator.
I have always thought Cold Shield was a poor choice for DG, I see the
logic of course, but it would be better for the name to reflect the
warmth that's kept in.
Why? Do you think someone would have been stupid enough to argue that
they should market refrigerators under a new brand (which no one would
know) rather than use the Hotpoint brand which was known and trusted
because they were good electric irons?
I wonder if ever occured to them that people might [still] be reading
Hotpoint as "hot point" by the time they started to sell fridges. IIRC
my parents - from the generation when fridges first became common in the
UK - never read it as "hot point"; for them it was just a brand of
irons, toasters etc. Indeed, I don't think I read it that way or knew
why the firm was called Hotpoint until I toured their old factory in
West London. But perhaps that just goes to show my stupidity is
possibly inherited :(
