Building Vocab, Bit by Bit


I always thought the word for paper towel was sopalin, until recently... Turns out the real word is essuie-tout, like "wipe all". Sopalin is a brand name, so it's like saying Xerox when you mean photocopy...

After seven years in France, I still learn something new nearly every day... 

BTW, they also say Kleenex here...
