I have a confession to make. I do a big NO-NO each time I wash cloth diapers, and I don’t even feel bad about it. I started doing this “bad” thing when I started using a new HE washer and had to completely change my diaper wash routine. Are you ready? Here it is…
I USE TIDE!
Yes, it’s true. I use Original Liquid HE Tide that can be purchased at any given super store, grocery store, or in-the-middle-of-nowhere store every single time I wash cloth diapers. I fill the cap to the #1 line during the cold wash and the hot wash, plus add baking soda. And, I haven’t had one issue since I switched. I tried all the natural/Free & Clear/Free & Gentle versions and they worked in my old top loading washer, but the only one that works in my HE Top Loader is the blue straight up original Tide. No need to pull your hair out trying to find the “right” detergent, you’re a parent and you have enough to worry about. Many moms swear by this detergent and now I’m one of them. There, I said it. And, I feel much better.
