I find soapnuts to be very cheap! We use them for diapers and all other laundry!

You can also check out Alice.com to see if you can save on the price. There is always free shipping. I am currently using a recipe from the EcoFriendlyFamily, which is working well.

I use 1 cup borax, 1 cup washing soda and a scoop of Oxyclean. I've been using for 6 months with no stinkies and very little staining (antibiotics stains are tough). The Bio Kleen is a great idea that I haven't though of. Do they sell it in a powder form that you can mix in, or do you just add it separately?

Re: What's the cheapest CD detergent option?

We use wonderwash (same as Charlies, just different name in Canada). I bought the giant 1440 load box for $200 and have barely made a dent in it in 13 months of cloth diapering. We also use it on most of our laundry: towels, sheets, whites and lights. I still use tide free or cheer on our darks because the wonder wash causes fading.

It's a big outlay initially, but it's the cheapest route in the long run.

Re: What's the cheapest CD detergent option?

Well, Tide is much cheaper for us but that's obviously out for you. When I hunt sales and match with coupons, there is NO "cd safe" detergent that can even come close to matching the price of Tide.

A friend of mine sells Charlies by the bucket full (she gets the mega size bucket and lets local clients refill out of it) and claims it is about the same price as Tide. I did the math on the humongous box of Tide @ Sams and the price per load was a little cheaper with the Tide than Charlies but not a whole, whole lot. Have you tried Charlies? Maybe that would work for you.

Tiny Bubbles from Costco is a great price and we use it on all of clothes. No build-up problems whatsoever.

That's Costco.com. I don't think they carry it in store. Otherwise it's about $11.00 a box and each box comes with about 60 loads worth. I think I last calculated it out to be about $0.20 a load as opposed to 7th Generation which is about $0.70 a load.
