Does anyone wash with just Dawn all the time?

I saw one person say they do on another thread and I'm intrigued. Does anyone else do this?

Re: Does anyone wash with just Dawn all the time?

My boys are out of diapers now, but when they were I did. The only times I ever had any kind of stink/ammonia issues is when I went from 1 to 2 in diapers (larger loads, but didn't up the amount of Dawn I was using) and when I tried to use cloth at night. Upping the amount of Dawn I was using took care of the first problem, and cloth at night just never worked for us.

Are you talking about Dawn the dish soap? I used that to 'strip' my diapers. I did this every 2-3 weeks.

I did this for a while - yes blue dawn dish soap. We have hard water and it worked well for us. We had a front loader though and I was paranoid I might break it... so I switched back to arm&hammer with a tiny splash of bleach.

When I used to cloth diaper I (for a long time) used Dawn only! It worked very well. I had a front loader then and now have a top loader. Non HE now. Who uses Dawn only for all of their laundry? No crunchy clothes issues?

I thought that Dawn voided your washer's warranty. Is that correct?
