Question for Tide Users

We're getting our stash all organized for our newbie, due in September, and today I happened across a HUGE stack of original Tide at Big Lots. We got several boxes (if we don't love it for diapers it'll get used on clothes) but I'm not sure how much to use. I know not to use the whole scoop, but Tide lovers, how much *should* we start with? DH will be the one handling the diaper laundry at first and he wants *exact* instructions.

Thanks!!

Re: Question for Tide Users

Yes, it's an HE front loader.

Thanks mamas!

Here's another question--I got three large boxes (120 load size). I've heard that the enzymes start breaking down after a year. Does that seem like enough to last a good long time?

I wish the stuff wasn't so heavy, I'd go buy it all and put it on FSOT at cost since I know how many DS mamas are lookign for it.
