I cannot remember who it was who recommended this to me - but huge thanks for the idea - OH has just got clean without getting freezing cold (he is very thin indeed).

I have both the shampoo and the foam body wash - you just rub it on and towel it off! He has never been so clean! With that and the monthly jacuzzi bath at the hospice (where they have hoist) I should just about be able to keep him sanitary - hooray!

I have used the shampoo on y hair and it is great.

That is wonderful news Lucky. Having cared for both my parents I realise what a breakthrough that is.

I wouldn't mind trying that on my hair.
I'm still waiting to grow out of 'the greasies'.

What an amazing idea which I hadn't heard of. My mother has all her personal care done by carers who never have enough time to wash her thoroughly. I am off to try and buy some now.

Never heard of it!


I will definitely give it a try for my ' flare up ' periods .

It isn't cheap - but he did not need to use very much - there is not much of him! And he now smells much better!

I think it should be Nilaqua I found that online but not Nilaqau.
