Thread: How international were you today?

  1. #1

    Default How international were you today?

    I think these threads are interesting. Today I visited:

    1. Germany (Speick bath soap)
    2. Canada (NatureClean shampoo)
    3. Czech Republic (Spokar brush)
    4. United Kingdom (Harris Almond ss)
    5. India (Parker razor)
    6. South Korea (Dorco blade)
    7. ? Middle East (Tulumba alum block)
    8. USA (Ivy Club aftershave)

    Good products, one and all. I doubt I could get any more global - can anyone top me?
