Re: If you used to use Tide Original...

I'm still using Tide original. I stockpiled it. I probably have enough to last through CDing every kid I ever have (and we're planning on having a litter)!

I found original tide at big lots, and I'm still using that for my diapers. I use the ultra concentrated for clothing, and it does seem to require more than recommended.

Re: If you used to use Tide Original...

I switched to Tide Pods, I reviewed the ingredient list and as long as I do an extra rinse everything comes out pristine. I have HE toploader and do an extra long super hot wash with vinegar in the softener and then an extra rinse and spin at the end. We don't have poo diapers anymore just really horrid toddler pee that she likes to hide every once in awhile. So I wash every other day and have had no issues. (BG's and FB E's)

I'm still using stockpiled Original Tide. Worried for when it runs out Would love to hear updates from those who try using MORE Tide ultra.

I just got a big thing of this from walmart too and have been washing my clothes in it, and now my RnG has run out and I'm wondering how much liquid tide original I should use on my dipes? I have a top loader and fairly hard water. I usually do a cold rinse, hot wash, hot rinse. What's your routine with the liquid original?

I use liquid Tide too, up to the 2 line in my front loader. Love it! We have softish water, I'd use up to the 3 line for hard water. !

Thanks!
Yes- we have hard hard water and I was about 18 diapers at a time. I do wash- with 2nd half wash and then an extra rinse and spin, I have a Samsung front loader. All from start to finish it takes 1 hr 40 mins. Oh and I do a rinse no spin first to weight down the load do it gives extra water.
