Exclamation Informing all about detergent and dipes

I am so glad dswappers is up and running now! I've been having a horrible time, and noone to speak to who really understands

About a week ago, I noticed holes forming in my hemp diapers. I thought it was only in one place, but as I looked; it's on all of them in different places. I bought these new, been using them for about 4 weeks now and washing them once a day b/c I'm building my stash.

I contacted the nice WAHM who makes these. She was more than willing to replace them if it was due to the materials they used. Well, as I started researching the detergent I was using, I discovered some people have had problems with Oxi Clean. Apparently it can eat holes in natural fibers. Well, I was using Oxi Clean Baby and thought it was perfectly safe, but once I stopped using it; the damage seems to have come to a halt. Hmmm. Makes you wonder. What is sooooooooo irritating is I tried to call Oxi Clean and ask for the ingredient list in the detergent. They were very vague about the ingredients. They sent me a data sheet, and the ingredients weren't listed onthere either.

So, I guess I am simply informing all you mama/dads out there using cloth diapers. I can't be absolutely without a doubt sure, but just to be safe; I'd stay away from the OxiClean/OxiClean baby if using hemp. Now I have two hundred dollars in diapers that are falling apart

Just thought I'd share!

In Christ, Bridget

I am sorry I have heard of this happening though. I dont touch oxyclean with a 10 foot pole when it comes to diapers.

Sorry that you had to find out the hard way that really stinks!!! Did you tell oxi clean that it had ruined your dipes?
