Has anyone come across RLR laundry treatment here in the uk?

I saw this link and want to try it on my bamboo night nappies, that i have tried to strip normally, but i seem to have failed.

The only place i have found to buy is on ebay, buying from america.

the link i saw that made me want to try this wonder product

also has anyone actually used it and did it work?

Sorry no help, but I strip mine with either a dishwashing tablet or a big squirt of Fairy - works well for me.

not used it but I would be wary of using anything that the manufacturer refuses to say what is in the product.
It probably is mostly sodium carbonate- washing soda but I'd still want to be sure.

When mine were in nappies I used a mix of washing soda and borax which worked brilliantly. ( I used a couple of tablespoons of each but experiment) You can't buy borax in shops now only borax substitute which isn't as good but you can buy it easily and cheaply from ebay. Borax also very very good for removing odours from food storage stuff, flasks etc and for soaking dishclothes and mops in

In case anyone is interested for future reference someone on a cloth nappy group adivised this eco sprout so have ordered some of that instead

hope it works well, reviews are good!

soda crystals are great for this. You just do a hot wash with the nappies and the soda crystals and then do a wash with nothing to give them a real rinse. Worked every time for us.

Good luck
