Question Now testing drops, method fab foftner??**PICS ADDED**

So I have used arm and hammer liquid for 6 yrs. I now have an he machine and can't find it in he formula in our little town. I switched to tide original liquid and it does work well. I just want to try something different. I was in target in Nashville today and they had some on clearence for $4.99 plus one had a $2 off coupon, YAY!! I bought the only two they had. So, I just threw in a load that had piled up from our trip. They're in the wash now. Soooo, I'm ancy waiting to see how they come out.

I also FINALLY found the method veg oil base fabric softner. WOOHOO!! Have to see how that does too!

Will update soon.

What has been your experience with either of these products?

Sorry, I've been too chicken to try anything new! Although I might try Gain HE when I run out of Tide.

I use and like dropps
I have never used method fab softner, but I have tried mrs myers and ecover, I think that any plant based softner is good.

I saw the Dropps at Target on clearance too and put it in my cart...but then chickened out! Of course I was there to get a perscription for dd's rash and didn't want to add more to the rash

Re: Now testing drops, method fab foftner??**PICS ADDED**

I have used Dropps twice on diapers and I'm not sure what to think of it. We have used it several times on other laundry with no problems but my organic flips are stained. We have the occasional stain but these are really bad and on several. DD2 also has a nasty rash today but I'm not sure if that is from the detergent or because she is teething so I can't really blame it on the Dropps for sure. I hope I can make this work for us.

I have used dropps and like them! Because they're a little more expensive, I use them more for my DD's clothes. lol I use them if I run out of cloth diaper detergent though, so they're nice in the fact that I can use them as my back up. Babysteals has them in their archives in bulk. It's a great deal and they're the 'Baby' ones.

As far as the fabric softener, I don't use liquid fabric softener. I got a rash all over my legs when I washed my jeans in my sister's laundry (she uses fabric softener). I hope it works out well for you though.
