Thanks to Hannah for this Frugal Baby Tip!
With all the discussion on Castille Soap recently, someone mentioned that it is basically Olive Oil and something else (can't remember).
Well, this got me thinking. As far as I know Castille Soap is not available over here. So I though, what if I just add a small amount of oil with my normal wash. So I tried it.
I didn't have any olive oil in the cupboard so I used Pure Sunflower Oil. 3oz put in at the start of the wash in a Downy ball with my usual washing powder plus a tablet of Calgon as we have very hard water.
The result? Amazingly soft nappies!!! Not one trace of greasyness. No odour apart from the fragrance of the washing powder, just *very* soft fluffy nappies.
So I am very pleased with myself - at last I have the perfect washing solution. I suppose the oil must condition the fibres. I just hope it won't affect absorbancy!
