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.
