I wasn't saying you should. Just that perhaps that's why I've never had any of the reported spreading issues!

From what I've heard, Aubiose is practically impossible to get hold of now - unless you're lucky enough to find someone with old stock. It isn't being exported from France at the moment die to a shortage there.

I ordered a bale yesterday from UK Pet Supplies and it has been dispatched already so they have some in stock. More expensive than from a local supplier but I need it for the Bradford Champs for in the tanks so wanted to make sure i got some.

KateR does the price on their site include delivery?

I ordered some from here the other day.

£8.something pence I think. Pricey really. Works out about the same as the one KateR got (if it included delivery, hence why I asked)

I have what might be a silly question about aubiose and equisorb. Does anyone know if either would affect a hayfever sufferer?

I paid £20.78 in total, including delivery. Shipping was £2.99. A lot more than buying a bale from a local place but as I said I wanted to make sure I got one.

Hayfever is an allergy to grass pollens. Aubiose and equisorb are hemp and flax based, respectively, so strictly speaking, they shouldn't set off true hayfever. BU-U-U-UT, some people have allergies to other natural materials (eg, house dust/mites, dog or cat fur etc) and could possibly also be allergic to hemp or flax products. So Aubiose and Equisorb won't set off your hayfever, but you *could* be allergic to them in their own right. You wouldn't know if you were allergic to these materials without having contact with them.

Bare feet makes no difference here. If you have laminate floors though it isn't as bad, because it's easy to sweep/hoover up. Carpets? Dont bother buying Aubiose. You'll end up rueing the day someone told you about it :lol:

Hate, hate, HATE the stuff. And bare feet doesn't stop you finding it in your bed, your bath water, your hair and your pants...
