Does anyone use soap nuts with their cloth diapers? 

I have soap nuts, and really want to switch to using them for everything, but DH is worried they won't clean our CD's as well as Seventh Generation does.

I used to wash our diapers exclusively with soap nuts when LO was younger, now we mostly use Planet, and every now and then, soap nuts. They do get the diapers clean, but I generally try to hand rinse each diaper immediately after use because I don't trust our FL, and hate running more than one cycle. I don't know how well they'd work without the rinsing.

I used them and they didnt get the smell out, I ended up throwing them away.  I tried everything to make them work and they did not.  My diapers stunk horribly as soon as my baby would pee in the diaper.  I use Ecos detergent, vinegar and baking soda, and hot water.  Sounds like a lot but its what I've had to do to get them clean enough.


Just love.
