    :hi: ladies!!
    Does anyone use persil non bio (the blue box) & if you do does it make soap bubbles in the washing machine??
    Because I think my washing machine is broken because no bubbles are being made but my friend just said it might be because I'm using non bio...
    I've already rang currys to come & look at it so I'm gna feel really silly if its the washing powder :haha: the washing machine is only 2 months old

    I don't notice many bubbles with ours either, so I changed brand and its the same. I wonder if it is because it's non bio as we used to get bubbles. The clothes come out clean so it must be doing its job!

    Both my washing powders (bio & non bio) dont make much bubbles :shrug:

    My washing machine is fully automatic/ side loading. The only time I got bubbles is when I used the detergent for the semi automatic (top loading) washing machines by mistake

    I use persil or fairy non bio liquid and only get loads of bubbles if I do a small load and accidentally put too much detergent in. Whether you live in a hard or soft water area can also be a factor, if you've soft water you'll probably get more suds/lather x

    Do they do liquid that's the same as the powder? I'm using the fairy non bio powder & then fabric conditioner that's liquid? X

    I always thought it depended on how dirty the washing was and what sort of water area you lived in. I use non-bio on occasion, and sometimes it bubbles, sometimes it doesn't depending on how much I put in and how dirty the load is.

    My next door neighbour is a washer repair man, he said powders and liquids are designed to not have many bubbles, they just make the water look soapy x
