Re: Fels_Naptha Soap + CDing

I understand Fels Naptha to be coconut oil based, not good for diapers. Once I run out of my Charlies, I plan on using just washing soda and simple green. Here's a quote from where I got the idea. I'll put a link below. She goes on to explain why this works:

"Personally, Iím thrifty and developed my own home-made formula that has worked well - not just for diapers but for all of my laundry:
1-3 Tbs washing soda (also known as sodium carbonate or soda ash. NOT the same as Baking Soda. If you canít find it, call this number: 1-800-524-1328, and use UPC code 3320003020. They can tell you the stores in your area that carry it.)
1/2 Tbs Simple Green (usually 4 squirts)
Put above into washer as it fills (donít try to mix them together first or youíll end up with a brick!)"
