    It's no substitute, unless you got lasagne sheets and you dampen them, then use them carefully when they reach the right consistency.

    I was surprised at how much stuff there was in Lidl when I swung past after my haircut - I got eggs, and pasta and chopped tomatoes

    Loo rolls - The NT News in Australia included an 8-page pull out section complete with printed cut-out lines for use "in an emergency". The feedback column in this week's New Scientist suggested you could use the magazine for a similar purpose once you had read it. Come on, you can get all your bored, stuck at home kids cutting newspapers into appropriate size rectangles (and it would save having to try and cram all the papers into your blue bags.)

    If you have any use for this type of gas lighter, then you might find some of these in Stafford's Lidl at the moment.

    I returned from 'my' Lidl run over the hills here last night with a few spares.

    It really is the best gas lighter available - I would expect the UK Lidl price to be £2:50 - they are available through Amazon at £10:49.

    Various colours available. they come filled and with a handy small refill cylinder.

    Have to say about six months ago I weakened from my severe scepticism and bought a gas powered soldering iron. I'd resisted for many years but soon proved myself wrong. Problem was I've never smoked, so didn't really have much time for matches. So I bought one of these high voltage cigarette lighters, sort of Ronson styled, which you can charge from a bog standard USB port.
    Now I've not only got a very good soldering iron (I wouldn't recommend it for PCB work, but for cables … WOW,) but I've got an instant ability to set fire to great public buildings and monuments. :teef:

    I have a USB lighter in my hiking bag, just in case.

    Great, now we’re all going to be questioned when something burns down

    FWIW the Aldi digital soldering iron is pretty good bang for your buck for where the gas one won’t do. Though if you’re at the point of buying a gas soldering iron I may just be insulting you by even suggesting something so cheap.
