    I have a John Lewis paper which says use a 'paste with preservatives and a fungicide'. My packet of solvite says contains fungicide but nothing about the preserver. Am I looking at a special paste? Thanks

    Solvite is fine for practically any paper...certainly John lewis. It does have a fungiside in it which is Arsnic based, Yeas arsnic based :eek: so dont suck your fingers or let the dog drink it. lol

    Thanks Robbie. The contents of the most popular DIY paste is suprising - the health and safety brigade will surely ban it soon!!
