I usually use this in powder the tablet type and always found it good but it's not rising well in the machine i'm using at the moment. Doe's anyone else use this and find it good? Don't know if it's time for a change but love the scent as some are so strong. Are Lidl's Non-Bio tablets any good?

I switched to the liquid version because of that and it's perfect (and cheaper)

I find the liquid to wear the clothes out more?!

Anyone else use it or tried Lidl's own?

I use sainsburys own non bio gel. I find the liquid too messy. I think it is as good as Persil but much cheaper.

Surcare non-bio has no scent at all - I like the liquid myself as I think they rinse better in general, but they do a powder too.

I use Persil, but I use the liquitabs. I bought a bottle of the liquid thinking it was the same and we all found it irritating.

I just bought some persil liquid after using fairy for a long time and my multiple allergic toddler came out in a rash all over.

I just started using eco balls and they are great as long as the things aren't stained or anything!

oddly enough me , my daughter and son with ezcema was fine with persil non bio, but, it was my husband who got a huge all over crop of ezcema from this.
He doesnt normally get ezcema. It wasnt pretty btw.

so we avoid. I use small amounts of fairy , which for some reason works for our families skin. even though quite highly perfumed. its the only perfumed thing in our house!

use lidl non bio liquid, find it more suitable for mine & children's skin. They have very mild eczema, & I'm just sensitive to all sorts of stuff! Persil non bio makes us all itchy, Don't use any fabric softener nowadays either.

We use the Persil non-bio gel too. I find it ok if I use the lower recommend dosage.

We use Aldis non bio, used to use the powder which was fantadtic & no flare ups with DDs skin at all & excellent value, but they don't seem to have had it for a while, so now trying the non bio tablets, they are fine, but not such good value as the powder HTH

Hi Napkin

I recently found this too. I don't usually buy the tablets but had bought a box sometime at the end of last year, put them in the back of the cupboard and confess to forgetting about them ! Anyhow I started using them about 4 weeks ago, we have a new washing machine, I made sure the temp was at least 40 and I used an extra rinse. And yes, they didn't dissolve properly. The first couple of times I used the drawer as the box said, but then I used an old tablet net and tried putting them in the machine. No matter what I did they didn't dissolve properly and there was powder residue left on our clothes and visible in the machine.
Eventually I rang Persil who said they weren't aware of any issues with them, and that the serial number I gave them meant the box wasn't brand new, which I knew, so that may have affected them. But they were pleasant enough, suggested I try the liquid, and sent me £7 worth of coupons which I have promptly used.
So in short, no it's not just you !!

I use Lidl's bio liquid - huge one for about £3.50. I have sensitive skin but I don't react to it and it washes a treat. I've not bothered with fabric softener for years!

I use lidl non-bio and neither DS2 or I have had reactions to it. Don't use fabric softener at all. On the rare occasion I need to use biological (heavy stains etc) Morrisons value powder causes the least reaction - don't know if its just cos its so cheap it's not got anything added

I use the old fashioned Persil Non Bio powder & a scoop for dosing. I use less than is recommended and it washes well.
Dissolves fine and lasts longer than you expect.
It's the only washing stuff that doesn't irritate DH.
