    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!

Bathtub cleaning

Any advice for cleaning a japanese bathtube? Somehow my bathtub has many weired stains and discoloration after I didn´t used it for long time. Normal bathroom cleaning spray doesn´t work really.

Mentos flavors in Japan

Been chewing away on plenty of Mentos in recents weeks (for reasons that are not important here) but I'm getting sick of just the cola, grape, and mint flavors. In years past I alway remembered there being a whole bunch of Mentos flavors available in Japan but now I can only find the three. If you've seen any other than those mentioned above, can you tell me where?

Kotatsu advice

For this year's winter I want to be as prepared as possible...we've already got heated rugs in some rooms but I'd like to get a kotatsu for another room we have. Any recommendations for brands, or things I should consider when shopping for one? Also, are there any without an exposed heating element? I've got little ones in the house so the safer the better!

Film Cameras in Tokyo

So I'm looking for a SLR film camera (maybe Minolta or Nikon). I've seen tons on Amazon but I prefer seeing the actual product first before buying it. Also, I want to look for better deals. For sure there are tons in Akihabara but I don't know where to start looking in there. And I wanna know if there are areas I can check other than Aki. Thank you. :D
