    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

Good Sparkling Apple Cider in Japan?

This year I have a hankering for a good sparkling apple cider, like Martinelli's, which I usually had around the holidays with my family stateside. I've seen their apple juice at Kaldi Coffee Farm, and it might be sold at Costco, but is there something similar from Japan? I keep seeing grape or melon champagne style sodas for kids to drink around the new year or Christmas, but not apple. Any suggestions / brand names of locally made sparkling apple cider are appreciated!

coffee makers

So, I really want to invest in a good quality coffee maker. Until now I've used a french press, but my husband does instant coffee because it is the quickest thing to a cup of coffee. All of the coffee makers I've seen at K's denki and such are flimsy plasticy and feel like they will fall apart in 5 mins, but still cost ichi man. I'm afraid to purchase one online and have the same feeling. Anyone have a brand recommendation on amazon? I'm looking for one with a programmable timer for my mendokusagari husband.

Effective cold medicine

Always nice to be handed a cold as you enter a 3-day weekend. I've been using the medicine (off the counter) in the image but it doesn't seem to have much clout. Does anyone have an cold medicine that they turn to in Japan that gets to work quickly?

Looking for a good Fat Bike

Hi all, I'm looking for a decent, budget-priced Fat Bike (basically, a mountain bike with fat, 4-inch tires). Anyone know of any good, reliable online dealers for fat bikes (used or new) in Japan? Any Japanese brands you recommend? Thanks!
