AL should be called " The Tide state"

I never knew anyone took the whole 'Roll Tide' thing so seriously until I joined that group. I don't think i'd be able to attend a meeting without bringing some real cloth diaper detergent but then i'd be afraid they'd douse me with tide instead of holy water

Around how much do you use? I have an entire container I've been using for clothes but wasn't sure how much to use if I was washing 6 pockets, 12 inserts, & around 15 prefolds

I have an HE machine and use about 1 tablespoon.

Why are my squishys leaking so bad :( I think pee was pouring out the rise adjustment snap :? I'm stripping dipes today but I have stripped them before with no luck. Should I put softener on the covers? Will that help or will it ruin the pul? The only thing I can think of is that her but doesn't fill them out enough and they're still too loose. Idk. I may have to put them up until she's older. The only way I can use them is with a fitted underneath

Eek I may be using too much. Usually I have a full load and I just cover the bottom of the liquid soap tray.

Do you have an HE or regular machine? I have an HE and use just under a tablespoon, but wash twice because the machine sucks.

What brand is it? I intend to order some crunchy clean because it rinses clean & does better in all water types so you don't have to do extra rinses(I still do at least 1)but its great for HE machines too!

Yeah it's an He front load. Idk if the load style makes a diff. Maybe ill actually measure my next wash and see how much I use. I usually just pour a little in haha. Since its free and clear there's no smell for me to go by either.

It's meijer Eco. It's a store brand. Meijer is a store here. I just didnt know what the ingredients would make it equal to. Maybe seventh generation? I wanna say it was next to that.

I use Tide for my clothes and did for my diapers too until everyone here kept saying I need to use a CD detergent. So I switch and I had crazy rashes and leaking until I went back to Tide. So it's what worked for me!

I'm sure it depends on a lot of things. But I don't understand when some women try to force it on other people like it's Holy.

Its good it worked for you. I know it all depends on a lot of factors though too. Diaper brand, fabric, organic material use, washer, amounts of detergent, washing routine, childs skin, etc
