I have heard of Resolve in the US.  How do you you know this is the same product?  Exact label?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vanish_(stain_remover)

Quote
Vanish is a brand of stain removing products owned by Reckitt Benckiser, sold in Australia, India, Indonesia, Russia, South Africa, Latin America, the United Kingdom and much of Europe.[1] In North America, these products are sold under the Resolve brand name.

They don't seem to sell the Resolve Gold Oxi-Action, Ultimate Laundry Stain Remover, In-Wash Powder in the US for some reason.

Anyone ever find dry ice in J'lem?
There are a bunch of places that deliver but not sure you would get it within a week and I doubt you can buy small quantities.

Why is it that it's so easy to walk into a store and buy in the US, but not readily available in Israel?

The demand simply doesn't exist I imagine.

Before going into so much effort to find dry ice, did you AYLOR about the השגחה on Ben and Jerry's?  IINM it's not universally accepted.

It's beis din of belz . Machzikei hadas. Most frummies use them. Have to be careful because not every flavor is CY.

You don't check before you buy/consume?

https://www.benjerry.co.il/flavors/chunkey_monkey/

The specific flavor you referred to here is NON-CY.

With all due respect, IINM I don't think most consider Belz hechsher in EY first, or even second tier. Unlike in the US where Eckstein is considered amongst the top tiers in Kashrus.

1. I asked and everyone said it was fine.
2. They make special C"Y runs of the flavors and you need to know where to find them.
