When I cloth diapered my first three kids years and years ago I just used regular detergent and never had problems. Now I hear lots and lots of people advise using special diaper soap and I'm confused. Why the special soap? What is special about it and what would necessitate using it?

My mom said the same thing she was like I just used regular ol laundry detergent and never had problems but she cd about 40 years ago and from what I understand there used to be more harsh chemicals in detergent that have been outlawed since her cding time I'm not sure about 3 years ago though

I have only had stink issues with "diaper detergent". I use whatever is on sale with 1/4 of bleach and my dipes are fine after a year!

Re: Detergent?

I have only used regular detergent for 6 yrs now. No worries. It's a more enviromently friendly movement. People also like the idea of supporting the little people, not the big companies. I just stick with what works. I keep if simple
