Okay, I would really like for my cpf's to be a little softer, but have been afraid of using any fabric softners, because I had read that they would cause the dipes to repel. Of course, then I have read about some mamas here using Downy Advanced. How is DA different from X fabric softener? Have you mamas had problems with repelling since starting with DA? How much do you use, and on what dipes? Where do you put it in your washing routine? Right now, I am doing a cold soak, hot wash with Arm and Hammer, and a cold rinse with vinegar. PLease let me know your experiences - and what dipes I should absolutely NOT use DA on!
