    We still have about 20 cloth diapers from our kids. I love them for the fact they don't scratch things and are lint free. Work great on car windows and glasses. We use them to clean our paintball masks.

    Most people these days know that washing cloth requires detergents that are gentler and won't cause residue left on the diapers which will put an immediate rash on the baby. We mostly use biodegradable, no-optical whiteners, no brighteners, no bleach, yada yada, detergents. I used Charlie's Soap. Lots of people use All Free & Clear. Or Country Save. They're all septic safe and biodegradable.

    I use Arm n Hammer Free. It is the only detergent I have found to not react with my eczema. And we ALWAYS use WAY less than recommended dosage

    I actually use Tide Free. The normal load size is 3 ounces. We use 1 Tbsp per load. I doubt we're doing any damage. I haven't found anything else that get our clothes clean enough. I WISH I could find a natural detergent that gets my clothes clean. Unfortunately I pay WAY too much money for our clothes to use a detergent that is sub par. Diapers were different. Who cares if the poop catchers have stains! [​IMG]

    Oh and I forgot to mention, when cloth diapering a newborn full time and a toddler full time, I was still only doing a large load of diapers every other day. When it was just a toddler alone, I'd do 2 loads a week.
