    Babycake I think that could still be bumpy side down.. It says with glue pad.. What does that mean? I think the round silver things at the end could face down so get caught in hair so bobby pin doesn't fall out??

    Dammit I'm gonna try bumpy down tomorrow.

    Since this thread I have been doing bumping side down on my DDs ballet buns and I think they hold easier and better.

    The glue pad means that you glue little embellishments on them. Usually for little girls hair.

    I read my car manual and found that out. Turns out I taught my mechanic DP something about cars.

    That doesnt help you figure out how to open the cap

    Ok so I've been trying bumpy side down and I'm sold - they feel much more secure and don't even loosen at all! I am now a bumpy side down girl!!

    Not at all. I use my nail to open them slightly as I slide them in and have never had a problem. Ive always worn my bumpy side down.

    There are clearly lots of hair dressers out there who need to be reading this thread - I have had so many up-do's and I don't ever remember them being put in bumpy side down.

    I do the egg float test all the time these days. I read it I think 6 years ago. I wish we knew it when I was 15 however and dad and I bought three packets of eggs in a row with dark purple/black yolks.

    And in terms of the petrol cap side. A way to remember for Ford and Holden (just those two I've paid attention too). Is a Holden's a driver (drivers side) and a Ford's a passenger (passenger side). Really helps when driving one that doesn't have the arrow to tell you.
