What detergent do you use on cloth diapers and why?

Okay, I started this thread, but got so many "others" that I decided to include All Free and Clear in the poll. Also, I accidentally clicked the one that says you can view what people voted, and that was just silly, so here it is again. Hopefully better (more accurate) results this time!
Thanks for your info! I was loving reading them, but changed it just a little. There were a hundred voters before, and the winners were Purex and All (both free and clear). Where do you buy those? I am in a small town and can't find them anywhere!!!

We seem to be able to get All Free & Clear anywhere...BJ's, Costco, WalMart, etc. It comes in a WHITE bottle, not blue like the regular All.

Love it. No probs with diapers ever!!!!!

Re: What detergent do you use on cloth diapers and why?

I use Allens. When I first started CDing two years ago, I did a search here and on the Pin and after hours and hours of reading, it seemed that people had the least amount of problems with Allens so I bought a box of it and I've been using the same box for 2 years - there is still some left . I've had no problems whatsoever, I've never needed to strip, I don't get stains. So, I'll likely buy another box of Allens when this one runs out.

Re: What detergent do you use on cloth diapers and why?

I use Allen's now. I used to use All F&C and it built up on my diapers. Some of you may remember my attempt at getting them stripped. I love Allen's! I do have a front loader, so it is much easier to use too much soap.

I buy ALL & Purex free & clear, it depends which is on sale because I like them both equally.

I buy them at Meijer or WalMart :-)

I voted "other" because I make my own (washing soda + simple green). Would like to try country save if I could find it around here.

I use two but I could not vote for two. I prewash with Arm and Hammer and wash with All F&C.
