    Just dropped an 1ltr bottle of isopropyl alcohol onto the parquet Floor in the kitchen. It promptly melted all the varnish off the floor.


    missus is still in bed. Do i just pack my bags and leave now?

    Put a corpse over it. She'll never notice.

    Act as surprised as her when you see it, it's your only chance.

    Do you have a dog or small child you can start shouting at for "barging in to you" as you were opening it? :p

    Lucky the weather is calming down, it won't be so hard in the spare room. Friday too so a chance to get beer on the way home and enjoy a film on the small tv.

    You need to add more chemicals to it to get rid of the IPA, I’ve heard that urine is ideal for this scenario.

    Ketchup and mustard will neutralise the IPA, get spreading liberally before she gets up.

    I thought this was going to be something really bad. Wash it off?

    I can't believe your missus was sleep walking last night and knocked 1 litre of isopropyl alcohol onto the parquet Floor. You should let her know how annoyed you are when she wakes up.

    I don't think you understand how IPA works.

    I thought it would have just evaporated in that situation TBH.

    Quickly make her breakfast in bed and then slip and drop it on said floor.

    If left in a puddle it evaporates fairly slowly.

    What were you doing with a 1l bottle of isopropyl alcohol at 7am in the morning?
