Hi all,

I’m currently writing some articles about restoring cars, I just realized I
tend to use ‘hence’ a lot in my writing. I think it just looks/fits better
than ‘so’ for example. Just a personal preference I guess. I can use any of
the other synonyms for “hence”, but that feels a bit cheap and inconsistent.
My actually question (being that English is not my mother’s tongue): is
‘hence’ too old fashion or uncommon? I want to keep it simple because of the
diverse audience.

paint cans.”
