Do Your Danish Chores: Useful household phrases.

September 19, 2017

 

It´s not at all fun (det er overhovedet ikke sjovt), but it´s necessary (men det er nødvendigt!). You need to clean up (man er nødt til at gøre rent): to clean the toilet (toilettet) or wash the floors (gulvene), downer! (nederen!)

 

But as the Danes love a clean, stylish home, as well as a good deal in Netto, these phrases will be very useful for your time in Denmark.
