I need to put a wash on this afternoon but have just discovered I've run out of the liquid detergent I normally use. No powder either and no chance of getting to a shop today. I do have fabric softener, some extra stain remover sachet thingys (which it says are meant to be used in addition to powder, not instead of) and soda crystals, as well as other normal household products. Is there anything I can use that will work on my children's grubby clothes? Thanks smile

I would use the soda crystals and a sachet of stain remover

^^So just put soda crystals in the drawer where the powder would normally go?

Pop the sofa crystals in the drum with the clothes and run it as a hot wash (if that won't harm the clothes)

Put in the stain remover where it usually goes

Should be fine smile
