Does anyone here use 7th generation powder detergent? What do you recommend?

Thanks

I did not have good luck with the 7th gen liquid on my pocket dipes -- they were leaking badly -- but haven't tried the powder.  I think the enzymes they put in there are bad news for diapers.  We had bad ammonia smell with soap nuts, and repelling/leaking with most name-brand detergents.  We've had the best luck with generic store-brand free & clear detergent, honestly. 

 

There's a pretty good chart of recommended detergents here: http://www.diaperjungle.com/detergent-chart.html

Plain old Tide (HE) in the orange box... Before we got the HE machine, we used Tide free (liquid) without any problems at all.
