I could rinse forever and still have suds. I also had to strip, which I have never did before or since. I tried Target on a whim. It is not located in the laundry aisle but in the natural cleaning aisle with Seventh generation and Mrs. Myers. I got the lavander scent but it also comes in free. It works so well. I love it and it gets my diapers really clean. I only have to do one extra rinse. It only comes in liquid. 32 loads for $6.59. Hope this helps you mamas.
You say you have a HE FL and hard water - do you need to use bleach in prewash with re target detergent?
I'm in the same case(HE FL, hard water) and have been using tide very successfully, but the only thing is that I hate the smell and I'm afraid to try another detergent.

I've never heard of this detergent! I'm definitely going to have to try it. Tide gets my diapers clean and stain free but I've always dealt with such ammonia issues and like someone else mentioned, I feel like I rinse forever! I'm just trying bumgenius detergent per recommendation of a friend but maybe if that doesn't work out I'll try the Target stuff. I'm a big fan of Target so it's worth a try and it's certainly cheaper!

I no longer have hard water. We were just lazy and didn't have LT in it before.

This is my diaper laundry during my extra rinse. As you can see no suds. I was never able to see my diapers during the first extra rinse with Tide. I also always used some bleach with Tide. I now never use bleach and my diapers are always stain free.

They always smell clean also. I use up to the 4 line with my diapers.

No softener, as I have not been able to find a single place locally that has the stuff. That and freezer paper. Is there a ban on those two items in Southern California ?

And I do still add bleach every load, just a little bit. With the strength of my 6yo's pee, I just don't feel safe without it.

And lastly, what about COUNTRY SAVE?! Has anyone tried both tide and country save and able to compare them?! Which is BETTER?!

P.S. I will probably be washing in fairly hard water! So would you suggest use of water softening products with these detergents?!

Thanks for the help!
I have used both. I have hard water and when I add Calgon with the CS, I think it works as well as Tide, maybe slightly better on stains. Since CS is so much more expensive, I had stopped using it but have just gone back. What I do right now is use a combo of CS with a little bit of Ariel detergent (Ariel is like non ultra Tide). If Country Save would add enzymes, it would be the best detergent on the planet.

So glad I ran across this thread. I saw the other thread about the Target detergent and looked for it in my store but couldn't find it.
Now I know that I need to check the other area and be looking for liquid only. Got it! Going to Target tonight! My hybrid fitteds all smell like pee.
Meanwhile I need to clean my washer.....off to figure out how to do that...
