Pine-Sol is a strong, pine-scented cleaner, so any similar brand ought to work. Similar products with different names wouldn't be bad. What I hate are products with the same name, but totally different formulas. Learned that the hard way when I bought a Sprite in Rome. I was so thirsty that day, but I took one swallow and almost split it out. Nothing like our US version. Undecided

Actually, you use almost exactly the same recipe for sprite no matter where you go. The main ingredient difference is whether you're allowed to use corn syrup (you can in the US) or "real" sugar (like most of europe does, probably more common everywhere else than in the US).

The flavor difference, however, usually comes from the local water. I remember when I was in Florida in the 90's, I couldn't drink coke from a bottle, because they were made locally and full of chlorine. The cans, however, were made somewhere else (Alaska main factory or something?) and didn't have chlorinated water. Cheesy

If I find the time around lunch, I'm going out to buy fabric for edging and backing of my quilt from the last swap! Then I just have to send it to a long-arm-quilter, because they've finally started popping up here. Cheesy

If you don't have Febreeze, check for Pine-Sol (the type you can use to clean your floors).

Unless it's a huge brand like Coca-Cola we just don't have the same brand names as you do, most of the time, even if we have the same product Smiley Especially household products are likely to be renamed for this market, or they simply aren't quite that global. It's always funny when you go abroad and you see the exact same product, with the exact same design, only the text states a different name.

Good luck melladh. Once the region is clear and safe if you are the outdoorsy hiking type, a burned out forest is a stunning walk.  The regrowth that begins so quickly after what seems to be the most catastrophic event is amazing. Life affirming that the planet can fix itself if we stop breaking it.

Yeah, that's a more cheerful thought Smiley A colleague who has lived in Australia on and off told me that there was a national park that used to burn down every now and then, but then they managed to stop the fires and didn't have one for 25 years. Then it burned again, and suddenly these plants started growing there that they thought had been extinct for over 20 years - they just need the fires to sprout.

Thanks for the tip, I'll definitely keep that in mind! It's traveling fast for a Swedish fire, but it would have to be at it for weeks to get to where I am, due to the lake. I think they've managed to put out the majority of it today, but they still have to do some drenching to prevent root fires. I'm safe either way, but when it's at it long enough, the smoke travels very far. A colleague who is a free-time-farmer might have lost some forest though, but it seems to have stopped before reaching his land.

I don't think we have febreeze in Sweden, but I'm sure there's some equivalent. If nothing else I might treat my balcony cushions with it once the smoke is out of the air Smiley

If all the blocks I send smell like forest fire it's because the EU is a failure *woken early with much annoyance* This is completely OT, but I was woken up by a thunder storm, and I'm annoyed! Cheesy Saturday or something, a forest fire started about 65 miles away. Sunday, they still hadn't gotten it under control, because we've had the longest dry heat spell in memory. So the EU has this deal of shared fire control, where not every country have to have water bombers. Water bombers from Italy was supposed to arrive Monday. Only they're considered part of the italian military force, meaning it has to go through each country's bureaucratic approval procedure for crossing their airspace, and I don't think the planes are here yet. Roll Eyes The fire is covering about 5x10 miles, one or two small towns are on evacuation warning, and by now the entire country can smell the smoke (plus get your eyes and nose stinging). And Norway. And land.

So yeah. As I said. If the blocks I send smell like forest fire, I apologize. It's unlikely, but I'm pretty annoyed with the bureaucratic wait right now. It's endangering lives and homes. Bah. Bah!

(PS only one death found, it started very deep in the forest, probably lumber machine malfunction)

I got the coolest mini hoop from sewmess! Cheesy



It's the tiniest thing, I love tiny things. The entire hoop fits in the palm of my hand. The quote is from mine and the boyfriend's favorite stupid youtube show, and features an appropriate minecraft shovel Cheesy

My camera doesn't really do the colors justice, it's a very good green background, and vivid shovel colors Smiley
