I've heard it mentioned a few times that using just plain washing soda is harsh on diapers in the wash. I'm confused by this, because I use it (plain washing soda) in my diaper wash and a bit for the soaking, too. Isn't washing soda a large part of what's in normal detergent? And if it is too harsh, what is the alternative? I was using hydrox (hydrogen peroxide based washing cleaner) but was concerned that was too harsh, too. Thoughts? Is washing soda so bad?
