I just purchased a Fuzzi Bunz and some Happy Heinies to try - my first foray into pocket diapers, I've only used flat and prefolds with covers 'til now (nearly 4 years of that!)....
I bought the diapers at Jillian's Drawers, and the site said to use Allen's or else Charlie's soap, and strip with BioKleen if necessary. So bought Charlie's soap and have used that in two loads of diapers now (I'd been meaning to switch to a better detergent anyway .... I use Arm & Hammer Free, with no issues but I'd read that there were environmentally better detergents. Also, as I started looking for pocket diapers to try, I kept finding information saying that the "Free" detergents, including Arm & Hammer, were actually bad for diapers and caused buildup.... Although that hasn't been an issue for me, but then again I occasionally would bleach my diapers since they were all 100% cotton
So, I just went looking for some more information on the Happy Heinies (I really like the ones we got), and DiaperPin has a post on their review section saying that they DON'T recommend Charlies; their website recommends several different detergents (Tide, etc.) but to NOT use "natural" soaps, such as (list of Dr. Bronners, Allen's, etc.) - as those will coat the fleece and cause it to repel.
So what's the dish?? What's true? What do you (those who use Happy Heinies) do? And I'd imagine that the same would be true of Fuzzi Bunz, those are still fleece and PUL after all.????
But the FB site says that Charlie's Soap is fine (among the recommended detergents) for theirs?? And so many of the cloth diapering sites recommend Allen's or Charlies with diapers in general, but do sell the pocket diapers like FB and HH -- so what gives? I'm still confused.
