I am a DIYer in many ways. gardening, canning, soap, beer… allsorts. there are products i use a lot, simple things, that cost peanuts in the UK but are ludicrously expensive here in France. its not generally a problem, i stock up when visiting family but yeterday i ran out of sodium Tetraborate (borax) so had a hunt online which lead to me spitting out my tea and mumbling swearwords !! !
why are things like this so expensive in France compared to the UK ?
If anyone is visiting the UK and is traveling back via Caen in the next couple of months, do you fancy earning a crate of home brew?? ha ha
