soap flakes?

Postby chezza » Fri Aug 06, 2010 9:25 am

Hello

I'm still fairly new to this but I've heard a little bit about soap flakes but have heard very mixed reviews.

Some say they're fab and get nappies clean and soft.

Others say they cause build up.

Can anyone tell me more about them?
Anyone used them for a long while?
Anyone had any problems?

Thank you

I'd like to know too - I've bought a box but haven't been brave enough to use them yet!

It's probably both... Anything soap based will cause buildup very quickly as it doesn't rinse out very cleanly...

I think if you do want to use them you need to chuck some soda crystals in with them to get stuff rinsed clean...

They're fab for handwashing :lol:

Aaah thank you,

I've used them twice cautiously, haven't noticed anything different yet to be honest.

I think I might stick to my normal powder to be safe, don't fancy having to strip all of my nappies.
