How a fridge works? If your air needs humidifying? Don't phone us if you know all about the chemicals, electricity, gas and gadgets in your home - but do ring us with any nagging doubts or queries about anything vaguely scientific around your house. with Teresa McGonagle in the Chair with Dr Magnus Pyke and Annette Lawrance. home economist
