Top ten general tips:
Someone posted where to find the traditional UFYH arsenal in Germany, so I thought I’d do the same for Sweden (because I didn’t immediately know where to find this stuff when I started this trip).
Magic Erasers = Fläcksuddare. These cost me 12kr for a 2 pack at Willys, and this brand is pretty common (ICA also has a store brand, about the same price). If you really can’t find them, you can order them online from Clas Ohlsson.
Vinegar = Vinäger or (as above) Ättiksprit. This is a 1 liter bottle, but it’s stronger than either normal vinegar or distilled (they are I think 5%, or 8, this is 12). So it goes a long way cos you can dilute it a bit. Rarely see it in bigger packages, but this particular brand/bottle you can find everywhere, all the time cos it’s the one used to make Sill (ie pickled herring) with.
Baking soda = Bikarbonat.
This is a pain, cos I can only ever find these small packages. Possibly because I live in a small town, but today I also went hunting two maxi grocery stores (a big Willys and a Coop Forum) and neither of them had bigger packages of bicarb either. Which makes drain volcanoes a lot more work than they oughta be :(
Is it bad that I think being trapped in Sweden might be kind of awesome?
