I've seen multiple times that you shouldn't use Tide Free, but only regular Tide on CDs... Why?

I don't know. Both Tide and Tide Free contain optical brighteners, which are bad for PUL.

Enzymes can cause redness and burning on many babies.

Also didn't see problems with my PUL (yet) with Tide. Also no rashes yet. Until I find something else that works it is Tide versus ammonia for me. Ammonia can cause bad rashes. We have not had a rash yet with Tide. I do an extra rinse after washing and use minimal amount.

We use tide free for all our laundry. We have cotton fitteds, microfiber, pul pockets. No problems.
