I don't think I could cope without this product.
I have 3 very young children and hence a lot of clothes stained almost beyond recognition. Napisan always get the stain out, even when various other stain-targetting removers have failed. Admittedly, it sometimes takes several days of soaking (particularly for those orange puree stains that babies always get on them), but the stain always comes out and the fabric remains undamaged.
I use cloth nappies for my children and since using Napisan in the wash I don't have to soak them at all. I just put a big spoonfull of Napisan in the dosing ball along with the regular detergent and the nappies come out clean and presumably germ free (my kids don't get nappy rash, that's why I'm confident about the germ-free bit).
I don't use Napisan in every wash as there's no need, but I always add some in the dosing ball for tea towels, bibs and basically anything that could breed germs.
It has no particular scent, so you wouldn't know it's been used in your wash. It's also non biological so suitable for sensitive skin (I have used it on all my newbon babies clothes and never had a problem).
I also think that Napisan keeps my washing machine clean - especially when washing at 30 degrees all the time, the water temperature alone isn't hot enough to kill off any germs, so Napisan does the trick and keeps your machine fresh.
It's only a little box, but it goes a long way. Even with regular use, my box lasts a good couple of months.
A very useful product - particularly for anyone with children
For anyone who wants to keep their whites white without using bleach I would strongly recommend Nappy Cleanse, available from Boots and other brand names such as Napisan. I found this product when I was washing my daughters white baby grows etc when she was little. It costs around £1.50 for a box that lasts ages. You put a tablespoon or so into your white wash, please check the individual manufacturers instructions, with the powder and hay presto amazing whites. There is no bleach in it and it is a great product for all sorts of whites, my husbands shirts and sports socks have never been as bright. It also has a germ killing agent in it so nappies, towels, kitchen cloths etc also come out with you knowing that they are truly clean. For anyone with children, babies or people who play dirty sports in the house this is a must.
I have a two year old daughter and her clothes are always stained, usually I can remove the stains with Persil Non-Bio but some stains are more stubborn than others, the worse being chocolate and especially McDonalds chocolate milkshake. Well I've tried everything to remove this stain, Shout, Vanish, Ace, Stain Devil and even leaving clothes in the sun to bleach naturally and all to no avail. The other day I was reading an article on terry nappies and it suggested the use of Napisan so I decided that if it could remove nappy stains maybe it would remove chocolate milkshake and guess what.....it does !!!!! Napisan is a germicidal stain remover which works by pumping oxygen into the stain to remove it. It also contains brightening agents and is non biological. The great thing about this product is that it can be used on colours as well as whites and it is cheap £2.50 for a small box and all you need to do is add two scoops to your normal detergent. If the stain is harder to shift you can you can use it to soak the clothes. Napisan can be found in Tesco's near the baby wipes and it's well worth a try.
