mine are sticky and stink, but are apparently fine. a 60 wash with twice as many nuts as stated did nothing. a 40wash with 1tbsp of bold did the job better.

The little yellow marks made my nappies look worse than when they went in. My husband did ask if I'd emptied all the nappies properly before putting them in :puke:

Compost :wink:

Or, if you can stand the smell, cook them up to make a general purpose cleaner.

Have you tried Eco balls? I really like ours, see post in this section about them :wink: 30 day money back guarantee too :D

We got some soapnuts (4 i think) free in our mama pack i am yet to try. They dont smell at the moment, thinking of doing the bedding, towels and dogs bedding with them, they arent grubby (well the dogs bed smells of sweaty dog :puke: but whats new :lol: ) so hoping they will work ok x
