Even after i have washed them (using ecover) they still smell of milk.

Any ideas?

I've never noticed the smell of breast milk.

Now I'm wondering if I smell of milk and no one has been brave enough to tell me blush.

Are you spraying your breast milk all over muslims?!shock

In ramadan too? That's just cruel.

Have you done them on a really hot wash?

I would use Napisan in addition to the detergent.

Vanish and Oxiclean are good at shifting milk stains (and, I suppose, smells) from clothes and muslins. Best treated before washing, but may still work on old stains.

PMSL at this thread! Who was it who was saying we should use Google Chrome to avoid spelling mistakes? We wouldn't have the pleasure of things like this. grin

BIWI we would, it's not a spelling mistake so wouldn't be picked up on!

BecauseImWorthIt Tue 09-Sep-08 19:33:12

I used to soak my muslins in water with teatree oil before the wash though - that helped.

lol!!! Sorry for the typo! I tend to chuck everything in the wash together so can't put things on a hot wash. Can I put tea tree oil in a normal wash?

I guess so - I did. Didn't put my undies in though. Was a bit afraid of it being a bit, uhm, harsh blush
