How much dawn?

I've been using Purex free but it just doesn't seem to be getting my dipes clean and I'm getting a lot of stains. I thought I'd try using Dawn tonight. How much should I use? Do I need to do extra rinses?

I use a good squirt. Maybe 2 tsp? Extra rinse, just because - no real reason, just feel better about it. The dipes always smell fresh.

I use a couple squirts, too. I do an extra rinse if there's suds in the rinse water.

So the dawn should help with the stains??? I ask because I put my first cloth diaper on DD today and she then christened it with poop! I did put some dawn in the wash (maybe not as much as you all recommended) and then the next cycle a small amount of detergent and the snap in liners are stained still...thought I might trying sunning them tomorrow??
