    Best to unplug your house from those nasty live wires at night.???

    “I don’t mean to sound dumb but aren’t appliances always ‘live’ in France, unless you actually unplug them? Does actually running them make them any more dangerous?”

    Our washing machine and dishwasher are on a separate circuit for creuse so their sockets can be switched off without affecting anything else.

    I suppose it varies according to what it is and how old it is but leaving them running has to be more of a risk. We only leave essentials switched in at night – fridges etc.

    Dad was a fireman for 30 years, and had been to countless fires caused by electical faults and domestic appliances so I guess I’m a bit more aware than most.

    And to reply to loopy lower down this thread – It’s not the nasty wires that are the problem, it’s what’s connected to the end of them!

    Indeed I am led to believe that Grenfell was started by an english washing machine, defective like the responsible migrant.
    Now what was it you chirped about grenfell residents and alu cladding. :lol:

    It is not for the first time that I hear polite complaints about my handwriting and free-style tables, so message taken. I do hope that this is easier to understand. Wiring: copper. See Badger’s remarks about aluminium.
