I would suggest the big package from sam's club if you are going to use MF towels. They are bigger & IMO sofetr & more absorbant. And cheap.

I use Sun detergent, simple green, dawn dishsoap, baking soda, Oxi clean, vinegar (not all at the same time...LOL)

Usually sun, dawn, & baking soda in each load. Once a week or so I do the whole she-bang. Also you should have that stuff on hand in case you need to strip your pockets.

All you really need is some detergent and a good washer

I use Allen's Naturally detergent and add 1/4 c apple cider vinegar diluted with water to each wash. The vinegar keeps them smelling fresh and everything is so soft

If you encounter any issues down the road, you can always go buy what you need then. But a good wash routine should keep problems away for the most part

Borax is a GREAT water softener for hard water!

Calgon is another brand of water softener. (not the bubble bath ) It works differently than Borax, but I have heard good things about both.

Things that I like to have on hand:

-Sun detergent
-The Sun brand of Oxyclean
-baking soda
-lavender oil
-Dawn dish detergent

I think that is the basic washing stuff. Besides a good diaper pail, wetbag, etc.
