Well, I don't know about everyone else, but probably about once a week or two I use a squirt (errrr....1 squeeze....) in my hot wash with my usual (teeny) amount of detergent.

Re: How to use Dawn to wash

Umm, I use it everytime. I use about a 1/2 a tsp. I do have to rinse more, but not having stinky dipes is worth a few more rinses. I have really hard water so wrinsing can be a problem. If you don't have really hard water you may not need to rinse as much as me. I actually just bought a small bottle to keep in my laundry room. I got tired of going to the kitchen when I needed it, and then having to back to the laundry room when I went to do dishes.

Re: How to use Dawn to wash

So can you just use dawn everytime you wash diapers, instead of detergent. Or do you still need to use detergent as well?
