However with this one its been one issue after another no so much diaper not getting cleaned but just something that doesn't quite work..

Tide free- less irritation MASSIVE sudding
Tide regular liquid (or various scents) cleans great irritates baby if not well rinsed suds a lot
TIde powder- clean great irritates baby suds a lot
Tide pods- best rinsing of the family, strong scents and not as good on stains... alos seemed to leave a kinda residue on the diapers maybe from the outter pod part? We noticed the same thing with the Dropps.

Still tide overall cleaned better than the other detergents, I did briefly go back to dreft and her rashes cleared but the suds were MASSIVE.. I reduced detergent and for a while had success but soon enough I needed to up it back again and the sud issue returned..

It is sooooooo much less stressfull finding a CLEAN rinsing detergent that actually cleans.

so far has also worked great on Chocolate milk stains on my DD favorite very white dress grass stains on DH jeans, greasy peanutbutter and jelly stains from sticky fingers takes care of my DHs stinky smelling socks and T shirts he uses for hiking. And cleaned blood from some sheets *nose bleed* I do spray N wash treat our regular wash clothes if I'm aware of the stain but plenty goes unnoticed and so far its getting it.

Just put away my first load of diapers using this. I got the lavender scent and it smells great. I cannot believe how white and soft the fleece in my pockets are. They seem super clean. I'm hoping it keeps working this well!

My question... It says to fill the measuring cup lid to the "2" line... I don't see any lines! Someone know what line they are talking about???

It took me a bit to see the lines too but look on the outside of the cap ince you see the labels they are pretty easy to find again..

1 line is about 1 inch from the bottom
2 line about 2 inches from bottom (jabout 1/2 inch under under where the screw part of the cap is)
3 line right at the "cap fill" right where the screw on part is
4 line about 1/2 inch above the 3 line
5 line 1/2 inch above that

Ive been doing it to the 2 line which I marked with a sharpie

Oh and sooo great to hear it is working so far

I tried looking for this today. 2 different Targets & I couldn't find it. Wasn't even an empty spot for it.

I have a feeling I won't find it here either. I don't live in a very green area.

This town is as far from green as one can get... So I was really suprised to see another option. It isn't even on their website yet so maybe keep looking I hope they bring it to your town though.
