Can anyone recommend a person to restore an antique chair, which we have acquired please? It will need re-upholstering and re-varnishing the wooden parts. It's quite valuable, as well as being a lovely piece of furniture, so I don't want it messed up by an amateur. Thanks for any help extended.

Assuming one has a dish pointing to the correct satellite (Astra 2?) is it possible to get UK Free TV in Berlin or does one have to go the Sky route? I'd plan on bringing my UK TV and Echostar Freesat Box with Slingbox included if it would work. This is my first post so my apologies if this has been dealth with before.   Christo

Just want to spread the word about a great store we found for lights called Lichthaus Laubstein on Linienstrasse 73 (corner off Rosenthaler Straße) in Mitte, we were really happy with the customer service, and it turned out they were having a sale -- 50% off their entire stock. Bonus!

I recently moved to Berlin. My stuff arrived and I have figured out, my apartment is not big enough. Does anybody know a "not to expensive" storage-location for about 6 month nearby Mitte/Kreuzberg? Thanks for your help, bye Bernie

Hi ..... I've just bought a new mattress and need to dispose of the old one. Can anyone recommend the easiest way to do this? I've looked on the BSR website and it's not clear whether I can take it to a household waste site and, if I can, will there be a charge. Thanks, in advance, for any help, John

I would love to have an oasis of colour on my southwest facing balcony - I have room for three window boxes approx 90cm wide each side by side but I don't want the usual bedding plants. I hate begonias, geraniums and would love a mini "cottage garden effect" but don't know if it's possible. Obviously I realise I can't grow traditional big stuff like delphiniums, foxgloves, lupins etc. but I just want a little something with lots of colour which will last throughout the summer. Suggestions/tips welcome!!!

For the past week my dishwasher has not been working properly. It either leaves everything coated with a white dry (salty) paste or it appears to work ok but it is demanding salt all the time. I have gone through 3 bags of salt in a week when one would normally last a few weeks. The dishwasher is a Bosch, 3 yers old. I have checked the filter to see nothing is blocking it. Does anyone else have any tips which might help? THanks Sara

Do Freesat boxes work abroad ? I know freeview boxes don't but I believe Freesat isn't the same thing. Do you have to have an HD tv for them?

I have lost the foot from my Frister Rossman sewing machine somewhere between my keller and carrying it up to my flight. I have searched in vain for it. Does anyone know of a place that does sewing machine spares?

Does anyone have any tips for getting a red wine stain out of a cream coloured silk top? I daren't put water on it in case it fixes the stain. It's one of my favourite tops and I will be devastated if I can't wear it again. HELP!

I would like to buy a food processor or mixer for making cakes and bread. Some I've looked at seem to be more for chopping/shredding/making soup. Can anyone recommend one with a dough hook and a tool for cake making ... I want to spend around €50-€70
