Assuming most other people who share my laundry facilities use fabric saftenet and in cloth diaper safe detergent, how damaging to my cd would this be? Is buildup from other laundry products used in the machines a big problem?

When I cd'ed my 2 younger girls, we had to wash at the laundry mat.  I never had a problem with products others had used before me at all.   I never had a build up issue ever & still have the same WAHM fitteds I had made 10 years ago.  I think it should be fine.  :)

We share machines with my husband's parents.  I use Charlie's Soap so I attempt to do a load of non-diapers with Charlie's before I wash diapers.  I believe this is working to keep residue off of the diapers because the detergent residue has already clung to the first load.
