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

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.
