Help!! I need a detox!

I went into 4 shops in Zürich today.Globus,Sihl City,Migros The last one Manor hit the nail on the head.The stink from the chemicals in this shop is unbelievable.It will be a great day when they finally close this factory. After I barely got out with my life I feel like my blood is full now with all these toxins ( formaldehd etc.).

Anyone recommend a good detox?

What were you in Globus for? Given their prices, I am surprised anyone actually goes there.

At least in Bern you don't need to pay in order to use the loo. The restaurant has a tasty hot chocolate and they'll even bring you the newspaper to read. As for merchandise, too pricey for me. But I do like to look at all the new fashions.

Nowhere in the stores in Zurich do you pay for the loo! ( or did they see that you were an Amerikan)?

Re: Help!! I need a detox!

Lemon juice in hot water every morning. Cut out sugar, caffeine, carbs and booze. Enjoy.

Re: Help!! I need a detox!

If you spend awhile living in the nature then the smell of the stores can really be strong. But city dwellers simply don't notice it. SAD!

Lots of people do, apparently. Sometimes when I want something unusual or special, I go there too. Some of their prices are outrageous, true.

Not for everything. Plus, it‘s easier for me to go to the Glatt.

Jelmoli does have the best fancy makeup department though.

That's one full-service loo! They don't even offer that service at the Four Seasons.

Many stores are stuffy, with bad air, poor ventilation and terrible lighting. The right conditions for a migraine. One reason why I tend to avoid department stores. A quick browse through a section is enough.
And even though they are sometimes more open, even shopping centres set off one of my heads, again the lighting and bad air.

If you have a functioning liver and kidneys, you’re just wasting money on some woo detox. Better off buying something useless and expensive in Globus - or Jelmoli.

Manor is fighting at the moment with the right to stay in Bahnhofstrasse.
