I use a splash (never been into measuring) of Purex F&C. I do a cold soak, hot wash and 2 rinses. Waiting on my TTO to arrive and then I will use that on occasion in my rinse cycle.

I have Sun, Sun free, and Charlies soap. I use very little maybe an ounce plus 1/2 cup of baking soda. I just got some laundry additive that I will use in place of baking soda about every other wash. I just wash on hot and dry.

Re: what detergent do you use for dipes?

i've used this method for a couple of weeks and i don't get woken up by a stinky baby anymore!!!!!

cold wash/rinse with baking soda
hot wash/cold rinse with a squeeze around the waher of blue Dawn
hot wash/cold rinse with nothing added
hot wash/cold rinse with a splash of vinegar i open it up to see if there are any bubbles in this cycle. if there are i do one more cold/hot with nothing.

my diapers are now clean!!!! they actually look cleaner than they were.

Re: what detergent do you use for dipes?

My wash routine is:

- cold rinse baking soda
- hot wash approx 1 tbsp Sunlight Sensitive a few drops TTO
- cold rinse nothing
if there are still bubbles, another hot rinse

Sometimes I use vinegar in the last cold rinse. AND I boil my hemp for 5 minutes every couple weeks or when it gets that smell.

Works for us!
