Re: when the trusty Tide and bleach isn't working.....

I don't mind the smell of the Tide original liquid (the blue stuff), and I find it works well in the HE version in my FL.
When washing in a top loader, I had great results with Tide Free and Gentle powder and some oxyclean free. Those diapers never smelled like anything, ever, even after a whole night on my dd.
I had to stop using Tide, it smells like urine to me since they changed it. I kept thinking my diapers/washing machine wasn't getting clean. I cleaned the washer several times and stripped the diapers I can't even count how many times. It wasn't until I was at my mom's and noticed that her washer smelled that I put 2 and 2 together. Switched to a different detergent, bam smell was gone.
