WHAT on earth did she use? I usually quite like the smell and it doesn't seem to last long enough!

How about another full-length wash, this time with a small amount of your own soap, or just plain soda crystals?

second the soda crystals suggestion.

If it's not your own brand, it can be really unpleasant, can't it?! I use Fairy and love it, but Ariel...makes me heave!

Sorry, not helpful suggestions, just sympathy!
