Nicey replies: Yes you can use clear spirit vinegar which is just dilute Acetic (Ethanoic) Acid, the same stuff that is in most kettle descalers. The Non-fermented condiment variety that you see in some chip shops is synthetic vinegar which has been made chemically rather than by traditional means which involves the action of acetobacter type bacteria on the alcohol in a fermented malt liquor. The non fermented stuff is made primarily by reacting carbon monoxide with methanol in the presence of a catalyst (Monsanto invented that). As such it is well able to clean out your kettle.

Nicey replies: Alasdair,

You may require a slight change to your work routines as the approach I've often used to this problem is to 'hang out' in the kitchen for a bit whilst making tea, possibly in the company of somebody agreeable. The most sensible approach is to make two cups for yourselves then make everybody else's. Whilst doing so you will be free to chat about the important issues of the day, possibly even work related if you are particularly driven individuals. Of course most kitchens don't offer seating so it's not going to be an ideal set up. You can use the lack of sit downs to counter accusations of slacking off in the kitchen. If however your new regime is gathering acceptance you might want to consider asking for a couple of bar stools. It is important to remember that time spent away from ones desk talking to others in your company is not wasted time, and provides valuable opportunities to exchange ideas over the kettle.

Other than that you may want to consider one of those water boiler things that go on the wall, but it seems a bit OTT for eight people.

Nice Bag of Tea and A Sit Down, sounds a bit odd. Also surely if one were actually to drink tea from a paper bag that was its self made from a tea bag, you could get into some kind of fearsome tea related Mobius loop. I want somebody to do that and see if apart from getting their jumper wet as an amusing consequence they also fold reality in on itself. Terrific. Surely this is the plot of the next Hollywood science fiction blockbuster, "The bag of tea bag tea incident".

I feel sure Wifey is going to give me a talking to when she reads this..

Nicey replies: David,

I expect you're right. Of course a really well designed website would probably have a kettle/teapot voting and rating engine with dynamic kettle point allocation. Alas on ours you just have to trawl through stacks of seemingly random emails from people banging on about what they like and don't like. In fact you'll probably need two cuppas just to get through it all, and 3 or 4 biccys. Still, at least there is a kettle icon, we didn't even have one of those until recently.

Still come the new year maybe we'll kick off "Functional teapot" month.

Nicey replies: Thats all wrong isn't it.
