We're currently on holiday in Spain. Are there any Mumsnetters living in Spain that can point me in the right direction as i cant find any Non Bio powder anywhere!!

Fairy is available in Spain and is always non-bio. hth

Try Mercadona supermarkets if you are near a main town.

There are loads of Netto etc supermarkets in Spain which will sell Fairy non bio.

If it helps you need polvo no lavado biológico. grin

Enjoy your holiday. envy

Alcampo or supersol own brand non bio are good ones. IME fairy is impossible to find unless you get it in Iceland (fuengirola - Miramar).

Our eczema nurse specialist told us you don't need to use non bio, the main thing is to wash at 60 degrees or above, using less powder than you would for a normal wash or adding an extra rinse cycle, and keeping their bedroom temperature as cool as possible. Enjoy your holiday!

Thanks ladies you are FAB! Managed to get something today and looks like we're all sorted!

How did I cope without Mumsnet!!

We spend a lot of time in Spain (just got back in fact!) and I use Norit machine washing liquid for sensitive skin (pieles sensibles). Costs about 4.50 euros for a bottle.
