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?

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:
