So I've only used this to hand strip my fleece liners, (laundry day is 5 whole days away ) but man am I impressed.

On a related note I'm also experimenting with using repelling fleece liners in place of my wool liners (between diaper and doubler).

Feeling creative this week aren't I?

ohhhhh, Shaklee is as addicting as fluffymail for me...

I have and Basic H, Liquid L, Fabric Whitener (like OxyClean), Fabric Softener (NOT a strong scent like Downy), and the Baby Shampoo/Skin Cleaner. That stuff is so amazing.

My G-Mom has been taking the Shaklee vitamins and supplements hard core for almost a decade now, and her skin has REGAINED elasticity, and her really bad liver spots have all but disappeared! It's amazing!

How do you strip your fleece - what is that and what is it for? Does it help with STINK?

I have Basic H and love it for everything but never used it to clean my dipes (I use Basic L for that) -- did you know that if you put Basic H on straight, not diluted, it is the best dipe rash cream ever? My DS had horrible rashes from antiobitics last week - burned all his skin off - but once I started putting the basic H on there, he got better fairly quickly. It's great for burns, so I thought I would try it - it was the only thing that didn't make him cry! Poor baby!! Anyway, good bit of info to keep around...

I just had a repelling problem with my liners so I put about 1/2 tsp basic H in a small bowl of water and swished my liner around and then rinsed it out, there were crazy suds coming out of it. Water runs right through the liner now.

My fleece liner repelling prob started a couple of weeks ago when I did diapers at the laundrymat w/o noticing that there was a bunch of fabric softener left in the rinse compartment. Next laundry day I'm going to just add a few tsp Basic H to the prewash and nothing else to the whole laundry load and see how it works.

Yep, I like Shaklee products also.

I take the protine drink each am for breakfast. I've actually survived on it a few times when I haven't had time to eat. When I'm pg and having morning sickness it works wonders!!! The iron tablets have also kept me from being animic the whole time I'm pregnant. This is usually a problem for me.

I just use the basic H, I used to get the basic L but like the simplicity of just one product.

Glad you are liking the Shaklee Basic H! I love the stuff! It's pretty much all I use in cleaning now. I think the Basic G (germicide) works well if you have stinky dipes. The basic H is just good for EVERYTHING!!! I will have to remember the diaper rash tip! Thanks mama! I never would have thought of it.

If you want to buy some Shaklee stuff, it's sold by members, or you can order from the company. If you want to become a member (I think it's about $20 a year ) you get a discount and can order directly from the company. I have been a member for about 3-4 years now. My DH and I use the vitamins, cleaners, and DH takes the Perfomance shake for weightlifters. We also use the herbal suppliments for joint health and to protect against colds, ect.

I did not know the Basic-H could be used for laundry.

I do know it can be used for bubble bath and doesn't leave residue! :-)
