So I know several of us were thinking about using the recipe for homemade laundry soap on our diapers but were nervous about it.
I have been using it for 3wks now. I love it. It seems to be getting the prefolds cleaner and better smelling than the Purex F&C that I had been using.
Also the diapers seem to be coming out with less staining, and after line drying they aren't as crunchy as when using the commercial detergent. That may be because I started using vinegar in the rinse but I like the way they come out.
Also I have not noticed any kind of stink issue or, leaking. That is what I was most afaid of. With the Purex, I would have the amonia smell in the night time diaper, and the diaper pail would get stinky quite quickly. That hasn't been happening.
I just wanted to post how it was working out for me since there were several who were wondering how it would work. I don't know how it would work on the more expensive diapers, I use prefolds exclusivly.
