Detergent... Free & clear brands

I'm sick of having to order from the 'net for detergent ... I went to store & saw tide's free & gentle, Pyrex free & clear, and wisk's free& clear... And cheer might have a free. Is it okay for me to use honestly?... I just need to use less of the recommended amount? And plus its nice having coupons and getting rally good deals if you use liquids let me know what you use and how it's used and how it works

Re: Detergent... Free & clear brands

I use dreft. i use like tbsp or 2 in my front load he. try anything u want really. the special cding detergents dont work for all.what type of water (hard or soft) might determine amounts or brands that wwill seem to work better. Good luck. I have softener but it has block in it so not sure if it really helps.

Re: Detergent... Free & clear brands

I use ALL. It works soo much better than "cloth diaper safe" detergents. I did try rockin green once. My once stink free diapers smelled horrendously. It only took one wash. Now I avoid "cloth diaper safe" detergents like the plague.

Oh yeah I use to the top line and follow with 2 rinses. I have moderatelly hard water. My detergent hardly suds at all if I don't use borax or washing soda as well.

Borax and washing soda soften water so the detergent works better.

I use gain or tide. Never once had to strip and I have been using them for a while.
