Some American products are unavailable or hard to find in Sweden. It’s getting better, but we’re still missing alot or if you can find things, they are extremely expensive. I was browsing around a little specialty store in Stockholm when I found this. Downy fabric softener. The price tag is 239 kr. Allow me to convert that to American dollars for you – $37.24. Yes, you heard me right. Plus, it’s only enough for 40 loads. $37.24 for a bottle of fabric softener that costs just under $4 at Wal-mart.
If I meet anyone in Sweden who buys this nonsense at $37 a bottle, they are officially off my socializing list.
