    Default Washing Powder

    I'm interested in which washing powder you are using to wash your bubs clothes and bedding in. I'm particularly interested in responses from parents of children with sensitive skin, eczema or other skin conditions.

    My DS has terrible eczema I always used to use OMO sensitive which was great, I changed and am now using OMO ultimate and haven't had any problems. I've always used OMO ultimate for DD'S clothes she is 6 months and gets very dry skin.
    I have found with DS that if I use surf or fab with the nice fragrants his eczema will flare up.
    I don't use softener either.

    Purity Sensitive liquid.
    Liquid is supposed to be better for sensitive skin, because it leaves less residue than powders. Unless you dissolve the powders first I guess.

    My DS has eczema and I've always just used earth choice or eco store washing liquids with no problems.

    Is the eco store washing liquid as natural as their other products? I use their nappy balm and think it's great. Unfortunately I think it's earth choice that has flared DS 's eczema.

    I think it is. I've not had any problems with it. I guess it often comes down to trial and error, and you just need to see which product causes the flare ups and which don't. Some people will react to products others don't. Doesn't make it easy unfortunately.

    Nope. He does fine with the planet ark aware but I hate using it... It all cakes together in the box and I have to grind it to get to back to a powder. I guess I just need to look at what is the bigger issue here.

    Have you looked into soap nuts? I've heard good things about them.

    I make ours using this recipe...
    6 cups washing soda
    Three bars of 4.5 – 5 ounce real soap, finely grated (I use Kirks coco Castile soap)
    Blended in a food processor, I add two tablespoons to each load
    Optional – lemon essential oil, I add three drops to each load

    I use white vinegar as fabric softener.

    Works well and is cheap!
