What is the best green detergent for diapers?

I am FINALLY getting to the end of my stash of detergent. I purchased 2 cases of it accidentally when my son was first born and 3.5 years later I have given away 2 packages and washed all of our clothes in it, and I am finally almost through it! It is Country Save soap.

With my son we went to Tide eventually with his diapers and I don't want to do that with the next child, so I am looking for a good alternative.

Thanks for the help!

I use a Homemade detergent for my REGULAR laundry and Bumgenius detergent for my diapers. Bumgenius works great! Its a special formula of Country Save just for diapers.

Re: What is the best green detergent for diapers?

I use these successfully...I've tried about all of them:

Eco Sprout
Country Save
Biokleen (It has to be the All Temp Grapefruit Seed Extract one)

I RLR every other month to maintain, we have a FL & hard water (:

Hope that helps!

What is your wash routine with soap nuts?

I have a FL machine and I was doing 3 cycles sometimes 4 before. I would love to cut that down a bit.

I have been using Allen's Naturally liquid for diapers for almost 4yrs. works great! & the bottle lasts forever b/c it is super concentrated
