Ever give up on getting the suds out????
 
I am sick of washing!!! There is the tiniest amount of bubbles on top, and I can't get rid of them no matter how many hot washes I have done :headscratch:. I am not having any stink or absorbancy issues, so I am tempted to just stop worrying.

I remember reading something that said it may be the washer w/ build up, so if I do give up I will chalk those bubbles up to that, lol.

Also, can I use sportwash on every diaper load? or should I use a "clothing" type detergent?

There are usually some bubbles in my rinse cycle but I ignore it. I haven't had any issues yet. Water bubbles naturally, right lol?

this is the best post! i've been doing the same and dh has had to talk me down a few times about my frustration... what about water absorbing into the diaper right away? does it?

See, that's what I am thinking. Are they just agitation bubbles from the water?

Oh, and my diapers generally absorb water right away, but they are cotton velour topped and sherpa if that makes a difference.

My water bubbles naturally at least :laugh:

If you don't have stink or absorbance problems... I don't think there are any problems.. :)

You can use it on every load. I use sensi clean which is the same thing - I use 1/2 an oz - it says to use 1 oz.

If you wanted to be anal, you could try vinegar in the rinse...

Thanks! I am going to start using that until I order some Allen's.

I would put vinegar in the rinse cycle, but I can't handle the diapers smelling like it! Hot vinegar diapers right out of the dryer... no way, lol.

I may try it and then rinse a few times after though... because it would just be too easy to be content with the stash.

I'm using Allen's too, love it! My dipes smell just clean, no fragrance...it's nice.
