Detergent?

I am very new at cloth diapering and I have no clue what detergent to use? Also my baby has eczema if this makes a difference?

DS1 had eczema when he was little and we used a homemade detergent. We switched to powdered tide because the diapers were not getting clean. I do 3 rinses and it never bothered his eczema at all. You might just have to experiment with what works best for his skin. Good luck!

Re: Detergent?

Do you have hard or soft water. If you have med or soft water I recommend Country Save or Biokleen premium powder. If you have med to hard water I would recommend Biokleen liquid.

All 3 of mine have eczema and we have used Tide Free powder for years.
