Re: Gahh!! This is why so many cloth newbies have laundry issues!
I was terrified of washing cloth when I started 4 years ago with all of the complicated routines and special detergents.
I started with Charlie's, and just never felt like things were getting completely clean.
I'm SO glad I read about Tide somewhere. I've been using it ever since that first bottle of Charlie's ran out, with only a handful of issues that required minimal attention. But using some of the same diapers on 3 kids for 4 years you are going to have to strip or bleach a handful of times!
I use the small load amount of Tide, hot wash, 2 cold rinses and that's it! No harder than doing any other load of laundry for me.
