  1. #1

    Default Dettol Rinse

    What is it..and how do i do one. One of my friends suggested it but never told me how to do one.



    Its for Nappies that smell like pure amonia. I forgot i had nappies in the bucket to be washed

    Just wash the nappies as usual then rinse again in hot water and detol.

    Or, you can use ti-tree or lavender oil in the rinse, put it in your fabric softener dispenser with some water.

    Or, you can do a proper strip wash...white vingegar in the rinse and bi-carb in the wash, hot wash and rinse.

    Then lots of sun!

    I do it the same. I put it in the fabric softener part of my machine for a rinse through. Makes the nappies lovely and fresh

    How often can a rinse be done? Or theres no worries about using it each wash.

    kim i tend to only use it if i havent bee able ot dry my nappies outside (like the moment with all the smoke hanging around) as drying inside doesnt leave them as fresh, so i generally use it for two consecutive washes as most nappies have been used during the 4 day,2 wash cycles, IYKWIM
