I must try that...it'll add variety to our rather dull kitchen floor...

Shit.

If it makes you feel any better, I can confess to the world right now that I once seriously damaged the wooden flooring in a famous listed building by pulling up a strip of gaffer tape.

Good news everyone!

Biological washing liquid, well diluted in a cup of warm water, removes the stains.

Phew. I was already composing a fictitious backstory involving bloodstains, for crowd-pleasing explanations.

I was going to advise blaming it on paranormal activity (have you read The Canterville Ghost? Oh, of course you have...).. some years ago when I was the manager of a team of assorted dimwits and minor criminals, a computer levitated *all by itself honest guv* out of a window one night to die a scattery death on the roof of the garage below. The Big Boss asked me how I thought it had happend and I'm still proud to say that with a straight face I replied.. "Er, poltergeists?"
