Mamas in Asia- What detergent do you use?

My family just moved to China last week, and we didn't have room for detergent in our luggage (everything we own in 6 bags!) and I certainly can't read any of these detergents! So we've been naughty and have been using tide. No huge issues so far, but our diapers do feel different (..or perhaps that's just the air-drying?)

Anyway, what do you all do about detergent?

We use tide. It's the air drying that makes your clothes feel funny. It feels that way with every detergent we have used. I have found the asian brands to not clean as well so we stick with tide, even though it costs me like $20 a bottle.

Oh and I noticed you are from dayton. We are from troy. We are living in thailand. I hope you are enjoying your expat time. We may end up in suzhou, china next.

Wow, too funny! (I need to update that location). We are going to South Korea next, but if I end up pregnant while in Asia, we'll be delivering in Thailand.

what part of china are you in? We are moving there in a couple of months. I may have a ton of questions for you if that is ok.

I use our normal 'adult' laundry detergent - Persil - just a bit less of it. No issues so far!
But I won't leave dirty dipes longer than a night or two, the humidity here makes ickies appear veerry fast!
