We have some new hardwood worktops and have been told to apply danish oil once a week for the first few months to protect them. However, I cannot find danish oil in the shops and wondered whether it has a different name over here or if there is an equivalent oil that is used? Obviously, this is for surfaces that will have food on them so I guess the type of oil is important. Does anyone know where I can get some?

Hi Ive been living in an apartment in Lyon since June, and for several months I have had a bad cough and congestion, including bronchitis. When we first moved in, there was mold on the walls, which we cleaned, but I'm wondering if it could be the mold that is making me sick. Does anyone know if there is someone you can call or some way that you can get the air tested in your apartment? Thanks for any information

I am decorating for the first time in Lyon and am wondering if anyone has any recommendations for cheap white emulsion. I bought 5 litres of Baufix for 13 euros from lidls (excellent) but not available the next time then 2.5 litres of "go on" from the Bricomarche which cost under 3 euros and was as bad as the price suggests. Brand names seem horrifically expensive, but if they are the only solution I'd be grateful for anyone's best buy tips.
