Detergent?
 
I know of Rockin Green and Tiny Bubbles, but they're kinda pricey and I'd have to order them online or go to a specialty store 30 minutes away.

Does Tide Free and Clear really work? All has a detergent that's safe for cloth diapers, too, right?

(Newbie to CD here.) :)

here are two links to help you. I use oxyclean baby (found at target) because its easier for me to get my hands on and my boy is too sensitive to other types. the Jillian's link says free and clear isn't good. but that's what I use. I'm thinking about going to original tide though for a try. hope this held mama! ;)

The "safe" charts are bogus. Stay away from ingredients that you know to cause irritation for your family, and probably avoid built-in fabric softeners, but anything you would trust to get peed and pooped on clothing or towels clean is what you should use on your diapers. Just make sure your final rinse is not full of suds and they pass the smell test and you're good to go. :)

I use All Free and Clear. Best advice is don't overthink it - how would you wash one of the baby's outfits if you got poo on it?

Ignore those charts. They are totally arbitrary and they don't matter. They cause people more problems than necessary. Use whatever you want. Anything is CD safe if it gets your diapers clean. It will all depend on your washer and water type.

Agree. I wish that chart would just go away. I would've saved so much time and money if I hadn't listened to it. I had problem after problem until I went with a mainstream detergent after 10 months of trying everything (almost a dozen "safe" brands). I use Cheer and love it. Tried Tide but just don't like its scent.
