LIVING CHANNEL – Thursdays from 11 October, 10.30pm

Journalist Jane Moore puts different household items under the microscope – the latest in cleaning technology, beauty industry staples and hardware essentials. Jane asks leading experts to explain how these clever chemicals work. To separate scientific fact from marketing spin, she undertakes some hilarious hands-on challenges. Will the latest cleaning formula be up to the task when her children are let loose with super-soakers loaded with coffee and tomato juice? The series also contrasts the marvels of modern science with the best Mother Nature has to offer, as when mechanics demonstrate the amazing powers of Limonene, made from distilled orange peel.
