It's perfectly correct to use a full dose of powder to strip nappies - and that's what I'd asked, how she stripped them, not what her normal wash routine was... ;)

I live in a soft water area and use a full dose of powder (100mls for my water area) every time, use the extra rinse cycle and always do an extra rinse cycle after the full wash with extrarinse has finished - I rarely ever get buildup... ;)

Phew I thought I had utterly been stripping them wrong there for a minute!
I did have lots, almost 30 at one point but found I was using the same 9-10 as I wash every other day so I sold the remainder as they were not getting used. I never saw her getting through 10 in one day. :giggle:
Absolutely no way can I afford to double my stash until next year, if at all :|

When washing I do use a very small amount of powder :D
