    Ok so I just had a quick google. Very interesting. Has anyone used soap nuts and what did you think?

    They were terrible for us. Our washing still smelled and they useless for stain removal

    We use white vinegar for fabric softener. It's supposed to help remove excess residue of your washing powder/liquid too I believe.

    I also use white vinegar in the laundry. Very useful for getting bad smells out of your fabrics.

    I use Omo sensitive. I've tried liquid brands but the kids always react to it. Might give Purity a go

    I've bought the planet ark aware sensitive again as I know he doesn't react so I can at least re wash his clothes to get the other laundry powder off but I think I might try out the Eco store one as it is a liquid and see if I can get a better result without upsetting his skin.

    I use them.
    They are the best thing since sliced bread!
    I box lasts 4-6 months for the 4 of us with cloth nappies and all bedding and towels.
    I use 6 nuts (they say 8 ) per bag and use the bag 6-8 times before replacing the nuts.
    A box cost me $45.
    Both my boys and I are allergic to soap and have Excema and dry skin.

    Earth Choice flares my dd's eczema up and the one time I used it for nappies it made her blister! I now just use an Aldi powder. It's in a big blue box. We have had no issues since. And it's cheap!!
