    Default Washing powder to help with eczema?

    What's everyone using to wash their bubs/children's clothes in? I use Omo Sensitive, and 2 two rinse cycles. But was interested in trying something else just incase it's contributing to her excema.

    I use soap nuts and make my own with equal parts of laundry soap, bi carb and washing soda.

    We found that switching to liquid helped a bit.
    We use omo sensitive and a sensitive liquid softener.

    You could also try using white vinegar in place of fabric softener - it doesn't leave a vinegar smell, but removes most traces of soap from the clothes.

    We are using an eco green laundry ball now. No detergents at all.
