Discussions about how to find those things that are not immediately obvious
Moderator: Charlie Phillips
1) Please search before posting.
Note that you should also search content-relevant forums (like Food & Drink for those items, and not just WCIF). If there is a content-relevant forum, the thread should be there, not here.
2) Please append your request to an existing thread
if you find a stale one, rather than starting a new one.
3) Please post separately for each search item
, not one thread for "olives and sour cream". Two threads, one for each. This makes it much easier for the moderator to merge your thread with an existing one, if any.
Of course, if you still can't find what you're looking for, please do feel free to post, and we'll do our very best to help you find what you need. If you have any trouble using the search function or the forum, please don't hesitate to send a PM (private message) to the Where Can I find...? moderator asking for help. Happy posting!!!

Baking soda, vinegar....whole bunch of stuff.
Salt is good. Was once considered good enough as currency.
Baking Soda is my first choice. Follow with some local mouthwash like a Listerine substitute. I cant recall the brand but I used to get it in the U.S. It was just Baking Soda with an additive that made it flow easily. I cant find it here but just a bag of soda works but the humidity clumps it. I tried a left over moisture pack from some cookies that seems to help. Moisture is the big downside but it's cheap and works.

Google is also a units-of-measurement and currency converter. Type "teaspoons in 1.3 gallons," for example, or "euros in 17 dollars." Click Search to see the answer.
