I probably get 12 hodsfull out of the 2 liters, just enough moisture to settle the dust. AND the bottle can be squeezed when I'm in a hurry...
BTW I've been reminded by my LW of the days of sprinkling shirts, and storing them in the fridge until ironing day prior to permanent-press.
thats a novel idea
just make sure your filling the soda bottle with oil and not water.
Why oil? The small amount of water works fine, not enough to create steam or cause any other problem. just enough used to dampen the dust.
I've finally got validation from my LW after 26 years of coal usage that it's not dirty albeit toasty and cheap. i don't think I want to throw that all away for oil stains on the carpet or some other catastrophe.
When i buy a few bags of Blaschak nut to supplement on cold nights, the coal in the bag is only wetted by water. A partially used bag dries up after a few days of being opened.
I've got gallons of transmission fluid and drain oil that I'd love to get rid of. The rental company around the corner used to use it for their heat, they've since converted to natural gas.
Gotta find a new outlet for it.
