Soap for FBs and other pocket diapers…

I am new to CDing and I am totally overwhelmed by the laundry soap instructions. Everyone has a different opinion! I am ready to break down and order either Allen’s or Charlie’s soap, but I don’t know which one, and I can’t afford to get both to try them out.

Help!

I have tried both and in my hard water Charlie works a lot better!! Allens just does not get them as clean...

Both should be fine though. Hope this helps!

I have used both Charlie's powder and Allen's liquid. The Allen's liquid is the only one so far that doesn't give my son a rash. We have really soft city water and I think the washing soda in the Charlie's was a little too harsh. We still use the Charlie's on our clothes, since it clean's well and doesn't leave a build-up in the machine.
