Re: What kind of detergent do you use on your pockets?

Okay, I think I might try the Allens! It's just hard getting past the price. I mean with dawn it's tons of loads for $3. But obviously it's not working.

Do you recommend liquid or powder?

The cheapest place to buy it?

Does any DS mama's carry it?

Why don't you try Sports Wash (sensi clean) first? You can find it locally. I think I prefer this to Allens - and I just bought a huge gallon of the stuff. Oh well!

Goodluck! I have had many issues with my microfiber. I just purchased some prefolds to try as inserts. I'm hopeing I won't have to strip as often as the micro. Fingers crossed!

I would look into trying Calgon also. We have hard water, but have a water softner. Well our power went out a few weeks ago and it shut the water softner off and I didn't realize it until my diapers started to stink and I couldn't figure it out. And know I am SURE it was because of the hard water. (but I have no idea how to tell if you have hard water or not. The way I could tell was because of my dishes having spots on them) I stripped my diapers and now everything is great.

Re: What kind of detergent do you use on your pockets?

I have successfully used the detergents your not supposed to use for 4 years now. I use Era or Arm N Hammer powder. I only use 2 tbs of the Era and maybe 1/4 scoop of arm n hammers. My wash routine is cold wash with det, hot wash, and then a cold rinse. I check for bubbles and if I see any I rinse them till the bubbles are gone.
