Is Bold 2-in-1 the same as Dash 2-in-1 in France??????????

And how on earth do I work out if it is - I'm presuming no one will actually know the answer to my question!

Our water is pretty hard so all my lovely cloth nappies are not terribly soft, even the bamboo nappies get hard :roll: Would love to work out if it is the one I can use or not!!

Tory I've done a little google search on French forum and they seem to think that dash 2-en-1 is no good. The other ones they advise to avoid are: Le Chat (poudre et liquide), Ecover, Etamyne du Lys,Skip Aloe Vera and soap nuts.

The ones they do recommand are:Maison Verte, Xtra (poudre), Lerutan, l'Arbre Vert.

Thanks Shevi, I'll have a look.

Gisele, thanks for that - I'd already discovered about most of the 'not to' ones from another cloth friend out here. TBH I've just been using OMO as it is one of the few that dh is not allergic to but liked the idea of using the bold 2-1!

ETA - didn't even realise you can get Ecover over here!!

Looking on the french Proctor and Gamble website, it does look like a very similar logo so yeah I expect it's the same product.

I was wondering about this too and not getting anywhere googling the two names, but I just tried "dash argile" (clay) and all the pages say the softener is clay-based, so looks like yes. It's on sale in one of the supermarkets this week, so as long as I can find a kind that isn't too offensively perfumed I think I'll give it a try!
