Washing/Detergent?

Postby ktbug87 » Sat Oct 29, 2011 4:38 pm

I am a complete newbie to CD, and we aren't expecting our first until January

My question is whether or not we need a special cloth diaper detergent for CD laundry.

Right now, I use the TIDE free.

Thanks!

I used Tide Free without any issues for the first year or so. But then I started getting build up. I switched to soap nuts and haven't had issues.

I've used Tide Free since I started cd'ing (almost 4 years ago) & never had any problems.

I used Planet for a while and it was okay but I really loved Charlie's Soap. It lasted forever and was so gentle but still got my diapers clean.
