Stubborn nuts that refuse to budge, if you have no plus gas to hand, a close friend suggests soaking your nuts with ordinary vinegar, and preferably encasing your nuts with vinegar soaked tissue or piece of cotton wool.

You must of course scrub the vinegar off your nuts or your nuts will corrode and stink of vinegar.

I don't think the wife would be very happy.....well. you're bound to leave oily marks on the vinegar bottle.

What did you think I meant? #-o

I doubt if its worth shelling out for a bottle of finest malt vinegar. A bottle of ASDA's cheapest will do the trick nicely. It could be wiser to wear your oldest underwear when performing the job. :razz:
