    so, our family uses Arieru but we are currently trying out Bold. I think Arieru leaves a longer fresher smell. Stain removal has been a problem though. We have an actual dryer, but this means that if no one removes the soiled items and washes them by hand(never happens because children don't like to admit when they've spilled things, includes the husband) then the stains set in and it is harder to get out. bleh. I did see oxyclean at costco, and I may get it next time. My grandmother used to use it with my karate gi when I was younger, and I still remember how WHITE it became. I've also heard good things about Attack, but i haven't personally tried it.

    "Grune Hexe" laundry detergent is the best, highly recommended! http://item.rakuten.co.jp/rakuten24/a002200200979/

    For softeners, we use La Bonn softener champagne moon. The result works well, and most importantly, it smells fantastic! :D

    https://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/product/B01KH059AI/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 This is the one we use. I've got two littlies and it seems to get everything out of their clothes - and it leaves stuff smelling fresh and clean, slightly scented, but not so scented that it's overpowering. Tried to attach a picture but it wasn't working - so hopefully the link will suffice!

What's your recommendation for the best (cheap) restaurant in Osaka?

I have family visiting Osaka and I'm in charge of choosing the eating establishments... I'm not necessarily looking for Osaka-specialty foods (kushikatsu, okonomiyaki, takoyaki, etc.) Just some typical Japanese shokudo-style restaurants that really stand out in your mind. Also, I don't eat red meat so no tonkatsu / yakiniku / etc. please! And preferably near the city center (Osaka/Umeda station or Namba)! Thank you :)

Eating Clean

Are there any dedicated plant-based eatery in and around the Fuchu/Chofu area? Not an establishment that 'also serves' but one that is exclusively plant-based. Found a lovely one in Hachioji but too far away for regular patronage.
