What detergent works best in your HE machine?

If you have an HE machine (top or front loader), what detergent works best for you? I have a hard time finding HE detergents that also work well to get the diapers clean. It seems that most of them are liquid and I find that powder gets my diapers cleaner. My boys have sensitive skin too.

Re: What detergent works best in your HE machine?

I have BumGenuis that reqs one scoop and it looks to sudsy for my taste.I also like to use Rocking Green in Classic Green and it works beautifully if I do 3 scoops with hot water. I can get away with clean diapers with 2 scoops but if is been lots of poopy days I do 3. I have a 1st generation HE from GE

Re: What detergent works best in your HE machine?

Honestly? A couple squirts of Dawn original dish detergent (blue kind), a couple shakes out of the box of borax and a couple shakes of Arm & Hammer all natural Super Washing Soda. Easy Peasy- it doesn't suds up too much for the HE. Sometimes if I can remember I use vinegar as a softener.

I have a FL and country save ( full scoop ) is working for us. I also add bleach about every other week.

Country Save here too! It's great for all water types and rinses very well! Also, it's great for HE AND regular washers! So, you wouldn't need to buy 2 different types of detergents if you need to wash at home and use someone else's (grandma, babysitter, travel, etc) washer.
