Ecover vs. Seventh Generation
 
My diapers are softer with Seventh Generation fabric softener than with Ecover - anyone else?

I haven't tried Seventh Gen yet. Does it come in pretty smells? I can only find pink lid Ecover locally, and I'm not a huge fan of the smell, but I never looked into Seventh Generation...

It IS nice to know it works well!

I'd like to know about the smells, too - 7th Generation is easier to get around here! Might have to try it. I have heard some good reviews.

I just bought some 7th Generation yesterday, and I'm going to use it on my diapers today. The closest physical store with ecover is 90 miles away and I don't want to order it online because Amazon only has the subscribe and save for the pink scent and I like the yellow. The 7th gen smells gross in the bottle, but it says that it's "free and clear" so hopefully it won't leave any scent on the diapers.

Update: I used a whole cap full, and they felt very smooshy when I took them out of the washer. It didn't leave any scent on my diapers, they just smell like the detergent that I use.

I'm replying rather than editing so that this gets bumped. I just got my dipes out of the dryer, and the difference between the 7th gen diapers and the ecover ones is incredible. The 7th gen diapers are WAY WAY a million times WAY softer than my ecover ones. I'm converted :)

Did the smell go away? I see they have a free & clear or a lavender eucalyptus smell... I'm all about the smell..,
:blush:

I used the free and clear and even though it has that gross "unscented" scent in the bottle, it didn't leave a smell on my diapers. I just smell gain :)

I use the lavendar 7th Gen and love it - it leaves a faint smell out of the washer, but not the dryer.
