Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

Does anyone remember them from their childhood? These strange slots allowed you to rid yourself of an old razor and never think of it again...but it also meant, years down the track, that someone renovating would be in for a nasty, rusty surprise.
I'm certain I've seen something like this here in Aotearoa-NZ, but can't for the life of me recall where. It was in the back of the medicine cupboard. Let us know if you've seen, had - or have - one in your home.

Wellington rivers could spell trouble for swimmers this week, with every popular spot in the region ranked as either unsuitable for swimming, or at least requiring caution.
Toxic algae blooms and elevated levels of E. Coli are prompting warnings from Land Air Water Aotearoa (LAWA), which provides updates on 125 spots in the Wellington region.
On Tuesday morning, according to LAWA, 16 of 20 popular river spots in the region were unsuitable for swimming, and caution was advised for the remaining four due to large amounts of E. Coli bacteria and toxic algae blooms.
Toxic algae and E. Coli both cause gastrointestinal illness and infections, with symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.

Please put NFP if you do not want your comment used by Stuff.
