Re: The No Stink, No Complications Laundry Solution!

Just out of curiosity.. are my boys the only ones sensitive to Tide? I always see others having success with Tide, so I tried it out a few months back. I rinsed the heck out of the diapers since I could smell the fragrance so strongly still. My boys are REALLY sensitive to a lot of things, so I wasn't surprised when the Tide gave them a horrible rash.

When I opened the box of Tide I could smell the rashes forming. We use a very mild detergent and it works beautifully for us.

When I read this sort of stuff I am always glad that we did no laundry research ahead of time and just sorta fell into washing prefolds in hot.

Re: The No Stink, No Complications Laundry Solution!

My kids have very, very sensitive skin and mild eczema but do fine with Tide Free. The fragrance in regular Tide gives me a migraine.

Nope, you're not the only one. I quit using Tide in college because my roommate had horrible reactions to it. Landed her in the hospital on more than one occasion. We shared towels and clothes so I quit using Tide on my stuff and never went back.

I'm pretty new to CD (4 months in) and I've been using Ruby Moon detergent because I was a "brain-washed" newbie. It's been working great for us so far...no rashes, no stinkies, no ammonia...NO PROBLEMS.

I am thrilled to read this thread though because I have heard of the dreaded toddler pee and am so glad to know I won't have to run circles around myself if I ever end up with problems. I'll just try my normal detergent (Method Free & Clear) before I spend any extra money on anything else! DUH!!!
