well, in the dipe forum, we have been discussing a product called 'sportwash', which is truly free of fragrance, uv brighteners, etc., for making our dipes work well. after trying most everything on my ds, coincidentally, after starting to use this stuff, his atopic dermititus/eczema has almost completely cleared up (i am using it on all his stuff.) maybe bad detergent wasn't the cause, but stopping it (free and clear my a$$) has really helped his skin. give it a shot- there are threads about where to get the stuff all over diapering.

I have been reading about the sport wash in the diapering forum and wondering if that would help ds's eczema. I sent my dh to Walmart the other day to get it, but the salespeople told him it was $15 for a bottle (18 loads). Ha! I know everyone else said it was about $3 at their Walmart. I'll have to try it because ds's eczema has really flared up with the recent cold snap. Thanks for the tip Suse.

My boys' eczema is much better after trying All Free and Clear, but even much better after Arm and Hammer and later, Bio-Kleen. I haven't heard of sport wash, but maybe you could try those others. . .

I've used Arm & Hammer for a long time, and I just bought a bottle of All Free Clear at Sam's because I didn't feel like making a second trip to a grocery store. Oops. I hope it doesn't make ds's eczema worse. My mother made the mistake recently of washing one of my ds's shirts in Gain. His poor skin! It took a week to clear up the rash.

i'm just using up my cheapo detergent on my dh (he has skin of iron- he doesn't mind! the adult's towels, too). man, one of the places online mentioned in diapering would be cheaper than your wal-mart, shipping included! what are they thinking! (maybe they have it in their online store too? but if the cost is the same, i'd rather support a wahm )

A relative has problems with excema. However she uses regular detergent, but adds 1/2 cup of white vinegar to the rinse water, to remove detergent residue and act as a bit of an antibacterial. Seems to work for her.
