Biz for Dipes?

I was given some clothes for my 2 yr old, and they look brand spankin' new. The mama said she uses Biz (color safe bleach alternative) in every wash so I got some and it worked wonders on our clothes - even took out old stains! Now I'm wondering if anyone's used it on their dipes. I'm a little nervous because it says it has enzymes and brighteners.

My mom used Biz all the time when I was little. She loved the stuff! I think the brighteners might be the thing to worry about most, since it may cause a rash or inflamation on baby's skin. I'm not an expert though.

Re: Biz for Dipes?

I wouldn't worry about the enzymes as much as the brighteners. It actually will cause buildup. I believe that was the problem with All Free and Clear for pockets. If you're just using prefolds though I don't see why it'd be an issue.

I wouldn't, lol. My friend I converted a few yrs ago used Biz on her dipes and her house (spotless always, her husband was a total freak about cleanliness) *reeked* from dipes washed in that. Her diaper pail had to live in the garage it was so bad and it caused horrible buildup so you could always tell when her ds needed a change. Her dh insisted they stop using cloth completely because he couldn't stand the smell. I tried to tell her it was the Biz...she gave me all of her dipes and I had to toss them because I couldn't get the stink out of them.

That's my experience with Biz anyway.

Oh, bummer. I suppose "If it sounds too good to be true it probably is..."

Thanks mamas!
