Thankfully I can get Yorkshire Tea in Coles and it's not that expensive and I have bought Marmite. I nearly caved the other day looking at the small bottle of Robinsons, but I had a word with myself and moved on lol. I hear Foodland in Osborne has big jars of Branston - I may have to investigate ;)
I buy 'comfort' fabric softner as its the closest thing to uk..
Cant help with washing powder.. I miss using the liquid capsules.. surprised they haven't got them here!! I've resorted to buying what ever is the best offer in the shop at the time..
I also get tumble dryer sheets sent occasionally.. lenor make them ( or bounce) & as they're light, don't cost too much to post!!

Always worth checking out stores like Riteprice as well - I stocked up on Ambrosia Creamed Rice a short while ago (99c a can) from the branch on Churchill Rd (I think) - short sell-by dates don't worry me as it doesn't stay in my cupboard for long!

Scents are very strong when it comes to memory so it's not surprising that someone should nominate goods that evoke memories of good times somewhere else. Taste isn't so important.
Oh and Nobby, unfortunately your initial post did come off as being very smart arse. Glad to hear it wasn't intended.
Maybe new arrivals should offer to bring over a few extra packs of washing powder in their containers!!!!
For anyone that is interested Costco do the large boxes washing powder. Not so much the British brands but certainly the massive packs that last years. The one we got in November is still going strong and we are a family of 5 doing at least one load a day. I like the Biozet Attack in the mint green box the best here.
I also found that Costco sell large boxes of Bounce tumble dryer sheets which I like to use as drawer liners and in-between the towels and sheets in the airing cupboard (or stuffed into husbands stinky running shoes). I have a large box of the sheets sitting on my kitchen table and can smell them in every room at the moment.
Comfort pure fabric conditioner holds the scent the longest and I like to use it for sheets and for everything else I use white vinegar!
