Good Idea for Soaking Driftwood
 
Thought I'd share a good tip, I saw it somewhere on-line recently, but can't remember where!
When pre-soaking your small pieces of driftwood, place the wood in your toilet cistern and every time you flush you are effectively doing a water change thus removing the tannins with every visit!:-D
Saving water in the process! I've currently got a nice piece of Red Gum root in both of my toilet cisterns!!!:-P

Why "Yuck"???

The water in your toilet cistern is usually the same fresh, clean water as anywhere else supplied in your house! :-? (unless you have a separate supply to your toilet, or maybe use recycled water?)

The only time it gets "Yucky" I suppose is when the water is in the toilet bowl itself, and I'm not suggesting you put your driftwood in the toilet bowl! ;-) :roll:

This way you're saving water, surely a good thing? :-?
