finial tide pods update

I have my CD love back! after much trial and error I found my loved rountinue and love for these things...

My routinue
1) cool prewash with clorox ultimate care bleach to the "line"
2) warm wash heavy duty large water setting with tide pod and 1 cup white king water softener (I basically just dump in bunch)
3) hot short cycle nothing added to fully rinse

This is getting me well rinsed diapers virtually no stains and clean smelling diapers.. However the HUGE gigantic I'd deal with soem staining or having to do extra rinses issues... DD exczema spots and all other rash issues have 100% gone AWAY!! those rash flare ups we saw for a good year that I tried changing detergents changing diapers diffrent wipe solutions I tried eliminating dyes removing enzymes changing her diet even going to sposies for a bit.. Somes things seemed to help some but then she'd flare again and they never went away.. Shse is now 100% clear and has stayed that way..
Yes sometiems we get some redness after a bad poo diaper but a bit of cream and its cured a change or two latter.. The ezcema though gone!

Re: finial tide pods update

I have no idea why these work but say tide FnG/orginal doesn't (as far as the rash)

The other thing I wash around a 9-12 diapers at once plus some wipes a few prefolds and the occasional wet bag or diaper cover so not HUGE loads... One pod is fine for this I wouldn't trust one with a big load of diapers though and that would get pricy... THough for the clear skin it be a big plus.

Wow! This is great news! So it did or didn't work better on stains? That's the only beef I have about Tide powder- I get stains I never got with RNG. . I will most definitely be grabbing the pods whenever I find good deals! How easy to just tell someone to use 2 pods???

That is great!! I've been using "pods" in my dishwasher and its been great. No worries about DH or kids using too much detergent.. Hmm.. Maybe a pod for the washer would be great too!

With my new rountinue I'm seeing basically no stains.. Tide orginal and tide with bleach I saw virtually no staining and tide free was decent the biggest issues with they took forever to rinse causing rashes if I didn't.

OTOH RnG was the WORST detergent for me the stuff did ziltch to clean I soon had a whole stash of horribly stained diapers that smelled looked dull and felt gross and rough and gave my DD open bleeding rashes.... So do consider that.

Telling someone to use 2 would deffiently be easy the price would jsut be a lot higher of course...
