:hohoho: what you learn, i wouldnt of thought i could use 2in1....i may give that a go then, none of mine have sensitive skin, just thought if it wasnt non-bio it would affect the nappies, glad to hear otherwise :mrgreen:

I don't know what's wrong with my machine, or if it's the way I wash, my my clothes never come up clean clean. They always have some kind of stain on and my whites always go grey :( Think I need to do a maintanance wash or something? I normally do a 95 wash with nothing in the drum, just some bio powder to kill smalls every few weeks. But I dont know. My whites are grey and I'm sick of it :(
ETA: I've used Persil, Fairy and lately tesco's own non-bio for washes with little difference in the whites. Just bought bold 2-in-1 so hoping that might make a difference? But my minkee wrap still looks a bit off :-?

Which product with bio do you use? I would be willing to try bio but would feel safer knowing other people with eczema have tried it before.

Both Ariel and Bold 2in1
(if I use softner - i.e. using Ariel on clothes I use comfort pure but not on nappies)

I find the most important thing is to always do a FULL wash cycle and never do a quick wash - and always use the 'extra rinse' button on my machine...

My son and I get eczema too and we haven't had any problems with Bold 2 in 1. I agree with Steph though I use the extra rinse option on all my washes to reduce the amount of detergent residue left on the clothes.

With nappies ive been doing a quick rinse first then a wash on 40, is that right? Or does it need to be hotter? :oops:

40 degrees is fine, you only really need to do it hotter if they have a bug or they are reeeeeeeallly dirty

Will try a bio at next shop. I don't think we have a extra rinse at the end just a prewash. Will have to check.

Thanks :)
