My sweeping brush needs replacing, quite simple or so anyone would think, it's just a brush for the kitchen floor but i like a certain texture and that is not an easy find in the Uk.The choice is excellent in Spain and the last time i was over i forgot to pack a brush head in my case, must do it next time.It got me wondering if there are any products which forum members prefer in Spain which they would miss living in the Uk.Anything from household items, tools, pharmacy, food etc.

La Selva beechwood smoked bacon from Mercadona is a product that I always stock up on to bring back. Should I be admitting this?

I used to bring back mojama from Mercadona but we can get Herpac products in the UK from Basco so I source my fix there. The quality is far superior. Actually Herpac products are not that easy to come by even in the province, except Barbate of course. We only have two stockists in town and I've yet to check out whether they'll be that much cheaper.

From the pharnacy it's the ibuprofeno cinfa 600mg (!) that do the job when required...

Correcto. Bought some this week, along with 1000mg paracetamol otc. The lowest dose ibuprofen we could get was 400mg and paracetamol 500mg and we had to ask for these lower strength tablets. Still cut them in half.

Bought some yesterday without issue, along with 1g Clamoxyl antibiotics, as Gerry says possibly its dependant on which Pharmacia you use

When i was recently in Spain i visited a Pharmacy for a liquid eye antibiotic which i can not get over the counter in the Uk,the Spanish pharmacist recommended it to me when i visited the pharmacy during a time when i was really struggling with my eye condition, it worked like magic..Here the docs fob me off with eye baths and various other treatments which make very little difference so i was glad to get back over there and purchase the product.
