I have quite a few of those too, my sister showered me with johnson's lotions and potions when she came to visit despite the numerous "we're not using anything cause Aida has eczema, and when we will use stuff it'll be only natural things for the same reason"... for her as long as it says 'sensitive' on the bottle it doesn't matter what ingredients/chemicals there might be in it! :doh:
I had completely forgotten about those but at least now I can use them rather than just burying them in a drawer, as much as I don't like them I don't want to pour them down the drain either. Funny how "gentle" baby products work well to wash out dye!! :hohoho:

:giggle: :giggle:
I also use them to wash my woolies if they are particuarly messy :wink:

You can get it on flea-bay :wink:

I use it on the last rinse of a dye run. It is used by many dyers to rinse out the last of the extra dye.

:giggle: I have loads of Johnsons stuff that was never used too, had planned to give it to a friend who's daughter is having a baby but will keep it now I know it is good for rinsing out dye :wine:
