Melaleuca detergent

Has anyone used this on their cloth diapers. I called the company and they say there are no softeners in it.
There are enzymes though so I am not sure if I should try it.

I haven't used it, but don't be afraid if enzymes. They are a very good thing. There are a small number of babies that will be sensitive to them, but most won't, and I think enzymes are crucial for clean dipes.

I agree! I would be more concerned about plant oils causing stink than enzymes as an ingredient in detergent!

Enzymes are the best at cleaning my diapers Natural detergents just don't have enough cleaning power to get my dipes clean in one wash, and without bleach. I'd rather use a detergent with enzymes them a "natural" detergent with bleach.

Re: Melaleuca detergent

Enzymes don't hurt diapers. My LO is sensitive so I had to switch to an enzyme free detergent, but if you're LO isn't sensitive that shouldn't be a problem.
