I bought a box of 24 tablets 2 weeks ago tomorrow. And I've used the last one just now.

There are 5 of us.

i only use one each time, so that could have done 48 washes here!

and i dont use washing powder on towels either [scummy]

I've never counted until now. Seems a lot, but with all the towels and sheets...

I've decided to start doing my washing late at night (cheaper apparently). I have to full plastic baskets of washing plus one of those canvas laundry bags to do and there is only 3 of us!

you should see the state of my typing too!!

That was using one tablet each wash.

Can't imagine why you'd want to use 2. Seems a waste when 1 gets the clothes clean!

oh right i thought u meant 24 packs of tablets.

yes, the kids eczema, and also i cant be bothered. i add a small scoop of soda crystals. its not liek towels get filthy dirty and need stains removing. they dont need to smell nice either do they.

most of my washing here gets done at 60degrees to kill dust mites, feel bad for the enviromental impact that has so try to save in other ways. does that make sense?

We would often have the washer on twice a day every single day - but there were 5 children and the first three were in cloth nappies and at one point 3 of them under 4 all in cloth nappies at night.
