Would love opinions/reviews on BumGenius Diaper Detergent?

I want to hear the good and the bad on this detergent. How'd it work for you? Any stink or build up issues?

I have a top loading HE washer. How much do you use in your HE machines and what is your wash routine?

Thanks.

Country Save makes it. Apparently it is the same as Country Save without the Borax in it.

I tried it and it didn't work for us. I used a scoop in the 1st and 2nd cyle like the directions said and my diapers still reeked of urine. I have a TL and hard water.

country save doesn't have borax in it anymore either. They are the same, as well as tiny bubbles.

I have super hard well water and it works AWESOME for us. I do a light cold wash (or rinse depending on hwo dirty they are) followed by a heavy hot wash/cold rinse with 3 scoops of the BG Detergent. Then I do another regular warm/warm cycle. No stinkies and they smell clean FINALLY.

We also use a capful of Calgon every few washes and RnG Funk Rock, not sure how much those make a difference

Doesn't work really well for me. My diapers had a slight smell to them still and were super stained. When I switched almost all the stains went away.

If it didn't work for you, what detergent do you use now?

I've also used Tiny Bubbles and Allen's Naturally with great results
