Volcanic ash is also used as an abrasive in mechanics paste soap, abrasive hand soaps, and rubber erasers. Very fine ash is used in some toothpaste and powder, and minus-200-mesh ash has been used for polishing plate glass. Volcanic ash could be used instead of powdered pumice whenever the latter material is suitable.

From google..^^ I knew about the rubber eraser side of things. Some toothpaste, is kinda interesting.


In very poor parts of the world ash is used as soap/disinfectant.

Brown I guess, but mayo is nice too. :mrgreen:

On a related note, why are there so many names in the UK for breadlike things you put stuff on? Barm, roll, bun, tea cake, etc? Are they all different things?

Brown sauce on eggs.
Red sauce on bacon.

although horseradish is my favourite on a bacon sandwich with some fried tomatoes....so that's almost red sauce....

I always say "Roll" but when i went to England to visit my dad's youngest brother, it was "Bap"

Then my aunt would say do you want a glass of "Pop" which we call "Ginger"

It got confusing.

I've lived all over the country and my experience is as follows:
The south of England - roll is a bread roll, bap is a soft white roll, bun is a sweet bun with icing on top, tea cake is like a hot cross bun without the cross
The north of England - Stottie is a type of bread loaf, bun is soft white rolls (baps), tea cake same.
Vicky will have to correct me if this next bit is wrong, but when i was in Scotland the soft white roll/bap/bun is called a morning roll, bun was sweet bread or cupcake/muffin.

Baps are flatter than rolls, I'm pretty sure that they use the same flour as rolls with perhaps a little less yeast? Crusty rolls are entirely different thing and manage to trap the grease in the bottom when you cram them with bacon :drool:

I don't have sauce on my lunchtime bacon bap, I have egg and mushrooms instead :snooty:
