Re: Whoaaa!

I would think that amount of citric acid in Cascade would basically cause the elastic in your diapers to deteriorate right away.

I have heard of people who stripped their diapers with it and actually put them into the dishwasher, too. I've always thought that was a crazy fire hazard, plus... Eww... That's where you put dishes that you eat off of. ( not that I don't use prefolds on my lap when I want to eat dinner in front of the TV, but still...)

Your child's butt can tolerate a little biofilm of bacteria s lot easier than chemical burns.

I remember the sports wash craze! I did a search for "lemishine", which is a dish detergent and found a bunch of old threads from '11. http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/...ight=Lemishine

It was being used as a sub for RLR same as cascade. I guess everything old is new again.

This.

Even if cascade and rlr have some chemicals in common, there are other ones that aren't and weren't chosen for their ability to rinse clean from fabric. Dawn I'm not fussed about, I'm up to my elbows in it on a daily basis because it's meant for hand washing. No chemical burns from it so far obviously. I'm just extremely reluctant to use anything that isn't for laundry for washing diapers especially since I hand wash a lot. If I don't want to reach into a bucket of it, I don't want it on my kid either.
