We are considering buying some Dr. Bronner's to try out. Have any of you had a positive experience washing cloth diapers with Dr. Bronner's soap? It's quite expensive but I guess I wouldn't mind if it's worth it? How much did you use per load?

i've never used it for washing diapers. i use it for house cleaning. it's super concentrated. so i have this 3 oz bottle that i got for $2.47 and i just put a drop or two in a spray bottle. and that i know is enough to really clean counters, showers, tubs.

this is the liquid peppermint soap. i don't know if there is another form.

After being told by a number of people not to use it on diapers, I even asked at my hfs and they said the same thing. They said *not* to use it on diapers because it can leave a major build up.

Thanks for the posts. I'll have to come up with something else for washing. Right now we use BIO Pac but that still has sulfates. I'll keep on researching. Thanks!

I used it for a few months with DS. It cleared up his rash but the longer I used it the smellier and less absorbant my dipes got. It finally got so bad that it was like I had put sealant on my prefold. The pee just rolled out ans soaked him. Hardly nay got absorbed. I'd say find something else to use.

I use dr. b's occassionally, it leaves my dipes super soft. But I don't use is all the time due to the build up issue. When I use it I use 2 -4 tbsp in a super capacity washer.
