If you've got any white vinegar you could throw that in, neutralises the soap a little.

I don't :( I keep meaning to get some to clean my windows with and then forgetting, there are still bubbles in the machine so it looks like I'm going for a record amount of rinses :x I really need to change what I'm using on the nappies! Any ideas? :oops: (I know there are millions of posts about powders so I'm off to find those now :giggle: )

We use Simply for everything (all washing and dishwasher) and get on great with it. I use one tablet at a time, rather than the suggested two. http://www.simplywashing.co.uk

Has your machine had a good wash out recently too? 90c empty with bio?

Erm I did it about a month ago, or probably just a bit over as it was right before we moved. Then it wasn't used for aaagges but I've done tonnes of washing since we moved in as I'm trying to catch it all up. Just had a look at that site you linked and they aren't taking orders atm :shock: Oh well, I might just go back to using Bold, I only stopped because someone said they had changed formula and it's a 2in1

Wow @ the unprecedented demand! Hope it's true as if it is that's great news for them. You can buy it in Sainsbury's, Morrisons and probably other places now.

I thought Bold was ok for nappies?? I've never used it so no clue about it all though.

I know, it's nice to see little companies getting a push :D I'll keep an eye out when I go shopping.
Yeah someone said that Bold had changed the ingredients so the softener in the 2in1 was no longer clay based, but maybe that was all just hearsay

We use fairy powder but have never had any problems - I only do one extra rinse, should I be doing more?
