    No wifi by the Cricket Club Mr. Elderly Dog. I didn't go down to the club house, just stood on the road and searched for wifi, but there was nothing turning up.

    No clue OD. I was sitting in front of the new bandstand/stage thingy. I'm heading down there again today and if I think of it I'll check.

    Any idea whether it extends as far as the Cork County cricket ground? If so, then I'm relocating to Cork City.

    Never offer your warm toilet seat to a tall dark and handsome stranger in a public lavatory. Doing so may lead to a serious misunderstanding.

    I'm told there could be 5 or 6 litres of water soaked into the soundproofing foam underneath the carpet, so I'm guessing that moisture-absorbing crystals probably won't be sufficient on this occasion - any link to info about them Sulla, or a brand name I can look up?
    Kilrock the brand name on the tub. Calcium Chloride the active substance. I wouldn't recommend spreading them about, they need to be housed in a container. They absorb water and turns into a messy gue, which is probably quite corrosive.

    Got them in the local hardware store You can get tubs of them as well as individual containers with which you fill with crystals
    Homebase & B&q certainly have had them in the past

    Use crystals stuff for boats you can get in hardware stores That said it would take longer than a day or two

    Cheers Kavy, it is a leather interior alright so I'll bear that in mind. However it should be possible to do it slowly/gently enough with the machine I'm looking at using, maybe connecting it to a timer plug so it only does 2-3 hours at a time.

    Be very very careful! A friend of mine, a classic car owner, told me a story once about a chap who used one in a Porsche after a leak. He overdid it, exactly how I don't know, and much of the trim of the interior shrank causing a world of heartache trying to put it right.

    It may have been that the dash and trim were of leather, I'm not sure, but check and double check with someone knowledgeable before you go ahead.

    This is probably as good a thread as any to ask this - can anyone recommend a cheap-but-effective dehumidifier? One of the sunroof drains in the car got clogged with the result that the carpet and (very absorbent) foam under the driver's seat has soaked up an indeterminate amount of water. Rather than strip out the seats & interior to try and squeeze/mop it out, I'd rather use a dehumidifier in the car over the course of a night or two, but a lot are pricey enough, well in excess of a hundred notes - however this one looks like reasonable value at just £32. Anybody got any other recommendations before I hit the "Add to basket" button?
