    Yeah. IMHO the Greens have been hijacked by the somewhere-left-of-socialist wing of the party. The brand no longer matches the policies. Sort of like Labour in the 80's :smile:

    I've heard from carpet cleaners that the smell is mostly in the underlay, which is very difficult to get to, even with the steam machines. Any topical treatment on the carpet itself won't get close....

    The party thing is quite a difficult issue. It's hard to prove and hard to prevent. :frown:
