Wondering if anyone can offer any useful advice. We have just ripped the carpet up in our apartment, under which is a lovely marble floor. The carpet came away pretty easily, seems to have only been glued down at the edges. Unfortunately, the foamy underlay stuff around the edges is pretty stuck. We've tried a steamer but that didn't work, and have tried scraping (but are worried about ruining the marble). Perhaps a solvent? Any ideas would be much appreciated!

Hi, late last summer, i decided to repot my plants, so i went to a reputable home & garden store & bought a bag of potting soil. however, a month or so after i repotted, i noticed a few little gnats flying aroung my apartment--it was about a month later when i realized they were coming from my plants. i got a chemical to treat the soil & i thought they disappeared -- but then a month later, there were gross little wormy larva things in one plant, mouldy-looking stuff on another, a sort of fungus on another and some other unidentifiable tiny bugs in another! i know the problems originated from the potting soil, because when i reopened the sealed bag a few weeks ago to check my theory, a swarm of insects flew out at me! also, the plants i didn't repot haven't been affected...yet. does anyone know how to get rid of these pests for good? in addition to chemicals i purchased at the store (indoor and outdoor varieties), i've tried diluted dish soap & diluted vinegar, which friends recommended, but it didn't work. the plants still look fine - just a little tired from all the "treatments." any suggestions??

As far as we have been able to make out there are two methods of buying bookcases in Lyon. Either spend hundreds - which we'd rather not do - or assemble yourself from IKEA which we are useless at doing. Does anyone know of anywhere which sells cheap or second hand bookcases (not antique)? We just want somewhere to store our books, not a fancy piece of furniture.Thanks

My neighbour contacted me to say that there seems to be a leak from my flat above into her kitchen below - although I can't find a leak anywhere (went round to look and her ceiling was full of water patches). Do i have to contact my insurance first or should she contact hers and I wait until they contact me or my insurance? Thanks for any help!

Hi, When I was looking at apartments, we saw an apartment that had these silver window locks on the inside of the windows as a child safety tool. Does anyone know where these could be purchased? We are in Lyon in the 6th. Thanks
