Feeling liverish lately ?
Ah, the memories; I didn`t realise that Andrews Liver Salts is still available in the shops today.
My old Granny back on Tyneside used to swear by it. She was a liver salts addict. She used to down a half-pint glass of `Andrews`, as she affectionately called it, first thing in the morning and then last thing at night …. and whenever she was was feeling liverish (whatever that means) in between. Mecannylad remembers her obsession with this horribly fizzy stuff went beyond just drinking it. She even used Liver Salts crystals as a cleaning agent; sprinkling them dry around the underside of the toilet rim!
I don`t think Granny`s odd toilet habits ever actually made it any cleaner or more hygienic for the follow on users ….. but, by God,it did give you a bloody fright when you went for a pee after her !!
