I've got super sensitive skin and am currently 30 weeks preggers and preparing to pre-wash lots of cloth nappies and baby clothes. I'm really interested in the simply sensitive washing tablets but don't want to order loads (to avoid paying over the odds in postage) if they aren't any good for my skin. Does anyone know if you can get a sample from anywhere and if you just use one of the tabs in a nappy wash (as I believe you don't need as much powder)? Cheers!

Bakind soda only, 3 tbsp for a nappy wash. works an absolute treat, gets any stain out and so kind to skin. also very very cheap, no stripping ever needed as no detergent build up..

I changed over to ariel bio after reading advice on here and Jamie developed the most horrendous eczema ever. washed them in baking soda ever since and the eczema is totally gone..!

We use simply sensitive too, one tablet in the nappy wash..Ds has really bad skin with most others we've tried and he reacted badly after we tried strip washing with baking soda.

We use simply pure (another in the simply range). We get it from Sainsbury's.

Eco Balls, they contain lots of little balls that oxygenate the water to lift of dirt etc. smell of nothing and can't cause irritation as there's nothing there to irritate, also good as nothing to build up on nappies/clothes either :)

Soapnuts.. DD has eczema and it's great, her rash is much calmer and I've only been using them for 2 weeks. I use them for both nappies and clothes and works great, I do put some vinegar as well and so far all the stains have come out!
