Anyone use the Ecos detergent from Costco?

I bought it for our clothes, but I am wondering if it can be used on diapers. It says it has soy based fabric softener, so I am guessing not.

Any thoughts?

I use it once in a blue moon as a toss up from boring all free and clear and am sure to give a good rinse. I don't think once in a blue moon is going to harm my dipes.

I love it for our clothes, but I don't think it is good for diapers.

We love it for our clothes as well!

I wondered about using it for diapers, but we have a great washing system and I didn't want to do anything to mess it up

I didn't think it got our diapers clean enough. I used it for our clothes and it was ok for that. I was pregnant when I was using it and the smell of it made me nauseous.

I've been using it lately for dipes too. It makes dipes too soft, so I think its buildup. I'm buying some CS when I can find some.

We used to use it and it built up really bad in our diapers, even with 2 or more rinses, I just couldn't get it rinsed out. I wouldn't use it mama, it's not worth the hassle.

I have read somewhere not to use it on diapers, I think it causes repelling, plus it has added fragrance.

Yikes, I definitely won't be using it on our dipes.

I saw the P&P ratings, but I don't trust those very much. They recommend against tide, which is what works best for us.
