Which detergent do you use? I've just started on cloth and am using Charlie Banana AIO nappies at the mo. They have been washed at 40 in Ecover and half the amount as recommended. Despite this and hanging out in fresh air, they whiff a bit (think wet dog!). Help!

I use an Eco egg... No problems with smell!

I started with what I had, fairy non bio (gel but powder is recommended ). Half a cap for a load. Have since bought tots bots potion in parmaviolet which is beaut. Although I have read that if they smell of detergent you've used too much. Maybe try slightly more?

I'm using Surcare powder at the moment. I've also used Ecover liquid and Method liquid and they worked fine too. Rockin Green is great and I think I'll get some again soon.

I use Ecover liquid

I use Ecover as well as a bit of Napisan. I also put a little lavender tea tree oil in the fabric softener drawer just to make them smell nice.

I use a non bio half amount but wash at 60 if pooey nappies they dont smell doing it this way. 40 is enough if just wee's

HorseFan- do you wash your CBs at 40 or risk 60? Do you pre-wash them as well?
