I broke down and bought a huge jug of Tide today. I have been using natural soaps (and still do with my cloth diapers)... but my DS's clothes are getting ruined even though I have spot treated (again, with a natural soap - seventh generation i think). I know there must be other ways to remove stains and brighten whites without having harsh chemicals in our home, down our drains, and on our clothes. please help so that I can return this huge jug before I open it.
for the record: I have added lemon juice to whites. I have added baking soda to every load to get rid of the stinkies. help!!!
