Anyone heard of
Crest-O-Mint mint oil? It is a cleaner, deodorant, degreaser. I bought it because of the great mint smell. On the back it says is great for family wash and cloth diapers. It is made in Shreveport, LA and is packaged in a very old fashioned bottle and design so it may not be everywhere. As for the ingredients, here is the list on the oil, isopropanol and potassium soap

I was wondering if it would be good to try with diapers or not? I am nervous. LOL. I wanted a fresh scent to the diapers and thought this might work since you can't use fabric softeners. Any ideas?

no clue! whered you get it?? i dunno what potassium soap is LOL. it sounds like just lye soap, which is regular soap, but i dunno why it would be called specifically potassium, kwim other than maybe cause its old fashioned looking!!

sounds kinda like dippity do though :laugh: does it say anything about eating?? :giggle:

I got it from a local family run business here but I looked online and seems like others have bought it locally too. The only thing I could find online is that they are searching for more info on boards as well. LOL. I used some in my regular wash last night and boy did my entire house smell minty fresh. Makes me want to keep a load of clothes washing to smell it. LOL. It says it helps with stains removal but these clothes weren't really that bad so I don't know. I just didn't know how you could tell if something would be good for diapers without risking ruining them.
