Anywhere online, really. I had osocozy brand and bummis, I liked them both and both have held up very nicely.

Am I crazy for thinking everyone that uses/recommends tide original as a CD-ing detergent is crazy? I am part of 2 AL CD-ing groups on facebook & everytime someone has a problem the solution is Tide original lol



My washer stinks- tide original
My diapers stink- tide original or bleach
I had 1 diaper leak in a 6 month period- Tide original
My kid has a rash- Tide original

I know some in here swear by it, some even in here. But I can't see why, or how. I just can't. I used it, once. In a desperate attempt to find one that would work when we moved and no longer had hard as a rock water. It took me 20 rinses, and I could STILL smell it and see bubbles in the rinse :? I finally gave up and stripped my diapers to get it out. And even then it was still lingering. I cannot see how it would "cure" buildup issues, seems like it would do the opposite.

I haven't even used my ecos on my diapers yet lol. I've used crunchy clean & it does GREAT! It rinses clean so no extra rinses are needed but I'm paranoid so I do one extra anyways.

I can't use tide at all. It breaks my skin out & gives me rashes. I'd hate to see what it would do to my sons butt! I was able to use gain for awhile but anything that has a lot of fragrance or extra crap in it has always messed with my skin.

Yep. Mine were on the hooks right below all of the kitchen towels. I think they are 28x 28 or something like that. They snappi WAY easier than receiving blankets too. lol. So I snappi those on and pad fold receiving blankets as a doubler. Bam perfect diaper for my kid.

I don't understand the tide craze either. I'm in the cloth in AL group too, and I once said I was having buildup issues and didn't know what to do. A woman told me to use tide and I said I had used it before and it causeed crazy buildup, and she told me to use it anyway :lol: I've heard of people saying using tide a few times damaged their diapers.

I dont get the tide thing either. lol

Everywhere I looked and read before starting said no to tide. lol But a lot of moms use it, so IDK. lol

I only use laundry tarts. RG gave my dd's eczema a nasty breakout :( it started to crack and bleed . It was so painful. So I went back to laundry tarts and its 98% gone and has stayed that way.
I havent had any build up as of yet tho. lol

The AL moms get super defensive when you question their precious tide too. I can't tell you how many times they have tried linking me to thecloththatcounts.com when I mention it isn't good for diapers. Along with them telling people 'bubbles don't matter as long as you can't smell it' and then saying that's normal for tide
