I bought this detergent mainly because of the price. I have been CDing for 6 months and used Rockin' Green until now. Although Nellie's does get the diapers 'clean' I think it leaves quite a bit of residue behind. I didn't strip my diapers, nor did I need to, while using Rockin' Green but within 2 weeks of using Nellie's, the diapers reeked of ammonia. Also, my daughter developed a severe diaper rash that could not be cured, after stripping my diapers, and quiting Nellie's, her rash healed immediately. My daughter has VERY sensitive skin, thus our main reason for CDing. All in all, if you're CDing because your child has sensitive skin, this detergent probably isn't for you!
I purchased this to try another cloth diaper detergent out. I haven't had much success with any I've tried and this is no different. At first I was just using this with my 2 yr old sons diapers and for the most part the diapers would come out smelling ok and be clean. He was in the process of potty training so didn't poop too much and when he did we sprayed off most of it from the diapers so there wasn't any staining. Now I am using it for my 3 week olds diapers (same stay dry and econobum inserts I was using for my son) and my prefolds cannot get cleaned to save my life. I had no problem with breastmilk poop coming clean with my son but this detergent leaves stains on almost every diaper I wash. It is too cold to sun them currently so I am either washing the diapers two or three times or using bleach. Both make this detergent useless in cleaning my diapers or trying to save money. I would not recommend this product to anyone and back on the search for a decent diaper detergent.
My family loves this laundry soda! We started using it on all our laundry a couple months before our son was born, and we love the way it cleans our clothes. Everything comes out fresh and soft -- no need for fabric softener any more! -- and even the crusty armpits of my husband's undershirts have improved, as did the condition of our bath towels -- they are no longer rough and stiff. I did not hesitate to use this on our cloth diapers once our son arrived. We have had no problems with stink or repelling. My mom has even switched to Nellie's. And, you certainly can't beat the price!
Love this product!! My 3 month old has super sensitive skin and using BG diapers. We tried multiple detergents and this worked!! For her clothes and diapers I cut the amount of detergent in half and run an extra rinse cycle. I use it for the entire family to keep her face from breaking out into a rash when we hold her. Our clothes are softer and smell clean. Highly recommend this product for sensitive skin and cloth diapers!
TERRIBLE! We had been using All free and clear for a few months so I decided to try a real " cloth diaper" detergent. Yeah, AWFUL. After the first wash my diapers came out smelling TERRIBLE. I had to strip and rewash with free and clear...I only got ONE use out of a 50 load bag! What a waste of money.
