Washing Powder - Bio or Non Bio?

Ask a Question

I have sensitive skin so have always used non-bio versions of washing powder.

Does anyone specifically buy Biological washing powder version?

If so does it work well on stubborn stains?

If you want to remove stains then you should try a stain remover like Vanish. I have used lots of different washing powder, from expensive brands to supermarket own brands and bio and non bio. The only thing that has ever made a difference in stains is the Vanish stain remover. You can get bio washing powder that helps with stains as it is specially designed to do so, but it isn't cheap. I normally buy the big bottles of Vanish liquid when its on offer for £6.

We all have sensitive skin in our house, and we use the aldi non bio powder, i have tried the fairy non bio etc but i think its too perfumee and irritates still. I too use vanish on stains, or i wash the stain as quickly as possible with washing up liquid then bung it in the washer and that seems to work.

I read that if you have a stain thats discoloured the clothing then put it on a windowsill or in sunlight for a few hours and apparently this gets rid of the discolouration - some sciency wizardry 🤣

I’ve always used non bio as we can be sensitive to strong washing powders. My go to is Persil non bio from Home Bargains which sells it at £5 all year round.

I used to buy Ariel but now use what's on offer, currently Surf & have no complaints. We used to use liquid but our washing machine started to smell, despite us cleaning it ever month, this doesn't happen with powder. I change between bio and non bio as it depends on £.

I use non-bio liquid/powder but during the summer months I run a couple of bio powder washes through to clear the pipes. Apparently it's a common problem with using non-bio liquids and sludge build-up. (stays in the system and becomes a bit smelly)

I use persil non bio pods since my baby was born and I like it. Now we use it with all family clothes, not just for baby.

anda21 ive not tried that one before. I'm using Surf Tropical. I'm happy with it and I usually get it for a lower price than Percil.

We use bio for whites and stuff that needs a higher temp, for everything else we use a washing eco egg. It's cheap and lasts ages, I was sceptical that the egg wouldn't be as good but it is
