non biological washing powder

  iqs 17:32 12 Feb 2010

Been told by a dermatologist I should use a non biological washing powder.
Simple I thought......Paid a visit to Asda,only to find an whole aisle full of various brands.Being a bloke I'm not that knowledgeable of things related to washing/washing machines etc...
So any suggestions from personal use please...

Do a laundry range, you may have to shop around to find it. Ariel used to do a non-bio and so did Daz and Persil. I found the Ecover was the least irritating and Persil the worst for my skin. I have no problems with the Arial bio liquid though.

Contrary to public opinion I am not thick skinned so I use FAIRY NON-BIO WASHING POWDER, if it is gentle/good enough for a baby's skin it is good enough for moi ;o)
"it does not contain any enzymes and therefore should be better for those with sensitive skin"

The rinsing abilities of your washer also make a difference.

Some of the modern washing machines take the green message so seriously that they have cut down too far on the rinse cycles.

We usually have to select an extra rinse to make sure all the soap is removed.

Lidl Also do a range of non bio powder and tablets etc. Not bad stuff for the price.

We also found that fabric softener can cause some skin flare ups. Comfort Sensitive is ok though

Also found that hanging the clothes on an airer to finish drying was better than using a tumble drier. Just clutters up the bathroom a bit more!

I break out in a rash from many things but have used Fairy Non-Bio with no problem(allergic to dairy/citrus/soap products,and suffer worse rashes in warmer weather)
