I think Ive messed up

Postby jop2010 » Sun Aug 29, 2010 6:19 pm

I have been happily washing and using my nappies for about 10 days (including prewashing etc) most have been washed daily but Ive just realised Ive been using bio powder, have I ruined them? Please say no as Ive spent a fortune :cry:

I use bio powder too ;)

As long as you are using the correct amount (1/4 or 1/3 of your usual amount) then thats fine :)

The UK is one of the only places that uses no-bio washing powder. Most countries just have bio and get on fine :D

Wow, I really enjoyed reading that thread, interestingly I use bold (the orange and passionflower one) and about 3 months ago stopped using conditioner and have found my washing ti feel and smell much cleaner, thanks for that info! :D

Ive been using full amount the whole time! well, 10 weeks.... will there be a big build up of detergent? if so shall i rinse them all in a hot wash?
