|The instructions on the back of the detergent.|
In the kitchen I found a 50ml measuring cup, and after measuring out detergent I poured it into the cap, which is unmarked but turns out to be about that volume. There are three sections of the detergent dispenser drawer, so I put detergent in the big one, hoping it's like the one we had in Virginia. The fabric softener calls for a half-cap for a 4-6kg load, so I put that in the medium size section of the dispenser drawer. I think the small one is for bleach.
Now for the controls. Someday I'm guessing there will be an app where you can scan a word and it will plug it into Google Translate for you (million-dollar idea!), but I don't have that app or a Swedish-English dictionary (it's still in the mail). And in the time it takes to run to my computer and type in a Swedish word is about the amount of time it takes my jet-lagged brain to forget the word. So I went with the only word I recognized ("normal"), which is where the dial already was.
It's nice that it gives you a little key to explain the buttons, but I'll have to look up these words as well. And the water temp was in Celsius so I'll have to do a little cheat sheet. I'm used to general terms like hot, warm, and cold, so I'm not even sure what temperature a warm water wash should be. Sigh.
Don't get me started on all the kinds of cheese at even the small grocery store, none of which sounds familiar except for gouda.
