Thanks Wobblyhorse, I finally found the manual online! JR seems like I'll have to do that because the manual just says 'pour it onto the clothes'.
Edit: I don't think I can just let our washing machine fill up first - it completely stops & shuts off every time I open the lid & I have to reset it.
God liquid detergent is ridiculous. Like I'm really going to spend forever every day with a bucket of warm water pre-mixing the detergent & then trying to pour the bucket of the stuff into the washing machine with a screaming baby in one hand & no sleep. I seriously don't understand why I can't just chuck the stuff in & turn it on.
Guess I'll just use the powder & hope that the baby isn't allergic to it.
Shame we can't use the MCN's now though, given the amount of money we paid for them (we can't use them with powder because it gets stuck in the nappies & damages them). Hopefully we'll be able to sell them easily given they are brand new.....
