    anything that comes their way or anything (that) they can get their hands on

    Hello everyboddy!

    I would like to say that here in Poland people heat their flats with anything that they have access to.


    1. Theyheat their flats with anything that comes their way.
    2. Theyheat their flats with anything (that) they can get their hands on.


    Do you think that the sentences 1 and 2 convey the idea?

    Thank you.

    Neither sentence is correct without a space between "They" and "heat".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I doubt that something suitable for heating fuel will "come their way". Much more likely that they could "get their hands on" something.
