    But it's an impossible job for me to overturn the consoles myself.

    anyway, i gt to apologize for abit of wrong info.

    the furniture were paid for on 10/july 2008 but the delivery was either 19/July 2008 or 26/july 2008.
    waoh, must post link if its up on some video sharing website. got no lorry, if not will take a good look of the wood,.. to see if can identify why breed flies, to avoid buying or rejecting 1 if kenna same situation.

    meanwhile keep ur doggie away from it while u go for work.... true few toilets got window so big (like Conrad Hotel) a bear can crawl in!

    Should the vinegar be diluted to 1:4 parts water or 100%? Isn't it more effective to use 100% solution?

    4. Lysol Spray seemed to help (my experience haha)
    if an acidic condition is needed for cleaning.. is it mandatory that it has to be acetate acids? fwah i cant stand the smell of vinegar.

    i've access to pure acetic acid though. will other acids do then? milder ones? or will an acidic buffer i.e. acidic phosphate buffer work as well? how about hydrogen peroxide?
    chezburgr i can haz?

    Not sure what is the conc of acetic acid in commercial vinegar, but commercial vinegar can't be 100% pure acetic/ethanoic acid right.. ( When I mentioned 100% vinegar in the earlier post, I meant undiluted vinegar off the shelves which is not pure acetic acid to start with ) Anyway, pure acetic acid (w/o Water) is not acidic (No H+ present).

    Probably you're referring to very concentrated acetic acid?
