I aim to use this blog to keep up my English and maybe give others some insights in Swedish language. It's not a diary - well not quite...

Tossor

Kläder/ClothesPosted by Gunvor 2011-01-21 22:52:56

Tossor (en tossa, tossan, tossor, tossorna) are the plastic slippers used in hospitals and other institutions in order to keep the floors clean. The left-hand basket contains använda tossor - 'used slippers', and the right one rena tossor - 'clean slippers'.

Tossa also means 'crazy woman', not very polite and mostly out of use.
