surf small & mighty?

Postby fleur08 » Wed Jul 22, 2009 2:05 pm

does anyone know if its ok to use surf small & mighty to wash nappys?

been using bambinex & hv is wondering if shes having a reaction to it as she seems to have persistent patch of nappy rash that wont shift or heal up properly.
i cant remember when i first used it & when the problem started though :-?

nonono!!!!!

Please don't use it on your nappies I've ONLY heard TERRIBLE things about it causing rashes, nasty smells and absorbency issues!

I agree though that the bambinex could be causing issues - best for us is:


Prewash cold or do a cold rinse cycle before washing
Wash at 60 using biological detergent (about 1/2 to 1/4 of the normal amount) and do an extra rinse cycle at the end

I used to use surcare but found that ariel bio is better...

Liquid detergents aren't great for nappies anyway...

I wouldnt use it for anything, least of all nappies - it leaves an awful build up on clothes and the machine, and I found the machine honked afterwards!

My routine was like Stephs, and we used Bold 2 in 1 as the softener is clay based and doesnt leave a residue on the nappies and so doesnt affect their absorbancy.
