I do! We have a water softener, but our water is hard here. I don't notice a difference in performance between the powder and the liquid, though. I have a 10 year old top loader.

great! thank you for all of your responses! I'm hoping it works for us. We have moderately hard water, but have a whole house softener and filter - so we now have soft water. Our TL is about 8 years old and I love it LOL. Currently on the hunt for a new detergent. Charlies and Country Save aren't cutting it on our night diapers and Charlies doesn't work that well on DH's stinking clothes. I decided to try EcoSprout and after only a week of using it poor DS has developed a really bad detergent rash from it - started in the diaper area and has spread all over his body as we were using it on all of our laundry too. I feel soo bad for the poor little guy Hoping Tide F&G works well for us too.

I have hard water but no softener. I do occasionally need to use a bit of bleach too. I have a TL.

I used it for years with success......it's the only thing that solved our night time ammonia issue. I just added 1 tbsp of Tide free to my nature clean and that did the trick. We have hard water.

Re: Tide F& G

It's not powder but the Target brand biodegradable clean pristine has been working well for a lot of mamas here!

Unfortunately, we don't have a Target close to us. The closest one is 30 miles :/
