Found a GREAT detergent!
 
Just wanted to let people on here know that Cheer makes a powdered free & clear detergent that does NOT contain optical brightners. It does contain enzymes (but I prefer enzymes in my detergent).
And a box is only $5.99 MUCH cheaper than Tide and minus the brightners. :thumbsup:

***just a note, the liquid does contain brightners, so stick with the powder.

I was wondering about this. I used to use Cheer on my clothes and always liked it better than Tide. Thanks for sharing.

Yes! If baby is ok with enzymes this is GMD's top pick for an enzyme detergent. I definitely prefer it to Tide because it does not have optical brighteners.

The powder version Cheer Free and Gentle is a good one.

Not the liquid though, as punkinmomma stated already. I want to say it again to be sure people read it through.

The liquid does contain brighteners but the powder does not.

Have any other mamas used Cheer powder?? Hard water mamas? How is it working or not working??

I'm down to like 5 loads of my Charlie's and I'm sooo ready to switch to something else! :giggle2:
