Re: What's the cheapest CD detergent option?

for those ladies using baking soda.. is your water hard, soft, or regular? because i used to use baking soda to wash my hair when i lived in a city with softened water, but once i moved back to the country where we have hard water, it no longer cleaned my hair well at all

You could always use 2tsp borax, 2tsp super washing soda and tsp Sun brand oxy cleaner per load. SUPER SUPER cheap

I forgot about Purex Free! I have used that with good results & it is less expensive than All Free.

Re: What's the cheapest CD detergent option?

what works.. I use and can't rave enough for Dropps detergent but its not the cheepest around $8 for a 2.5 month supply.. However it means diapers I dont have to worry about and diapers I can clean with in a reasonable wash rountinue.. For me detergents like ALL or Purex ect are cheeper but then I have to run 4 extra cycles to rinse..

Re: What's the cheapest CD detergent option?

I use Ecover delicate cycle. I think I pay about $3.50 for a 22 load bottle. I actually get more like 35-40 loads which lasts me 2.5 months or so washing every other day. I love it... washes up the diapers very well, never had any issues (and previously Planet was the only detergent I could get locally that didn't create horrible problems!) and it has a friendly ingredient list. I'm not sure where it is sold, but I get it at Henry's Market here in california. I'm interested in the TJ's one... I might have to give it a try.
