Re: How many did or did Not get rashes or burn from Nellie's or Eco Sprout detergent?

I've also done some research into detergents "causing" burns and it could be that it's not compatible with your water type and therefore not getting your diapers clean enough, not using enough detergent, not using enough water (like if you had a front loader) etc. It's usually what's left behind on the diapers like ammonia and bacteria that causes the burning, not the detergent ingredients themselves.

I used to love Charlies and so many say it didn't work for them. But I really <3 Eco Sprout and think you should give it a try.
This is what I was going to say. I don't think the RNG causes the burns, but I don't think it cleans well at all, and often wonder if they didn't have that clever packaging that fits so well into a flat rate box at the post office if it would really be so popular though I don't see nearly as many posts about it as I did 2 years ago.

I think what is most important is that you find a detergent that gets your diapers clean every time. For me it has been Tiny Bubbles, I have moderately hard city water, and I use two scoops in a load, it is available to me locally, which is awesome, but also sold in bulk at Costco. With my 2 kids I have been using it for almost 3 year now, have never once had to "strip" diapers, and have only used bleach when fighting yeast. When I run low and can't get to the store for the Tiny Bubbles right away I use Tide Free or All without problems.
