Diaper Detergent Poll: Powder or Liquid

Do you prefer powder or liquid detergent for washing your diapers? I am thinking of ordering either some Allen's or Charlie's Soap, and am unsure of whether to buy powder or liquid.

We are a liquid detergent family for clothes, but I am wondering if powder may be better for diapers. What do you think?

i have only used liquid with my diapers so I can't truely say what I prefer, but I did pick liquid. I learned that powder leaves stains on clothes so I figured it would on my diapers too.

No preference from me. I buy and use both liquids and powders. Whatever is on sale.

I use sportwash (liquid), Sun (liquid), or washing soda (powder) with simple green. I have a powder & a liquid calgon (depends if its going into my cold cycle or my hot wash. I really have no preference & havent noticed any difference in the diapers. We use liquid for clothes though...easier for dh

I only use liquid, tryed powder when staying w/MIL and got HUGE build up because it did not desolve very well, so we don't even look at the powder anymore.

Re: Diaper Detergent Poll: Powder or Liquid

We have always been a powder family. I haven't had a problem with stains of build up. But I use liquid for my dipes. Don't know why...

Interestng! I've had liquid soaps cause stains on clothes, but never powder..

Anyway, I use liquid on our clothes and powder on the dipes. I like the liquid cause it smells better. The brand we use has a soy-based softener in the liquid and it caused buildup on my diapers, so I switched to using the powder on the dipes - took care of that!
