Question Pocket inserts washing question...

I am a newbie here and it is pretty late, so I'm really sorry if this question has been asked before too.

I have several pocket diaper inserts... hemp, microfiber and Indian and Chinese prefolds. I know that you have to wash your pockets in specific detergents and not everything is good...

But what about the inserts?
At this moment, I have Tide Free, Ecos and Ecover at home. Are any of these ok?

Or should I wait until Allen's naturally comes in the mail? (not arrived yet)

Thank you!

I've used Tide Free with no problems. The scented version made my dipes smell but never the Free.

Sun
Sportwash are also good.

Check out http://pinstripesandpolkadots.com/detergentchoices.htm

Per that chart, Ecos and Ecover are both big no-nos! I think the Tide would be okay. FYI, I had huge build-up problems w/ All F&C.

Hmm, thanks for the info!! Love that chart.
I might just use the Tide then or wait until Allen's arrives in the mail.
