Help!<br>
I've been happily using my day time cd system (contour diaper with ProWrap cover) but with the 12 hour stretch at night the diapers were too saturated and gave her rashes. Sooo, I've been using a disposable at night and haven't had a rash in 18 months. But that's still 7 disposables a week...<br>
My friend suggested FuzziBunz, I bought some and they arrived today. Now I read that I have to use a regular detergent on them. I'm very scent sensitve and use Soap Works with no problem.<br>
So, my questions are as follows:<br>
Are there any "regular" detergents out there I can use with no (or VERY little) scent?<br>
Has anyone used Soap Works with bad results?<br>
Are FuzziBunz just not going to work because of the detergent issue?<br>
What would my other options be for easy night time diapering?<br>
Thank you so much for your advice, o-mothers-of-cloth-diapering-who-know-all.

MY FB is washed with regular Tide unscented (which really doesn't have a scent) with an extra rinse and come out fine. I'm not sure how SoapWorks would work, as I've never tried it.<br><br>

If soap works is a soap and not a synthetic detergent, you will have issues with it. If the label says is contains vegetable surfactants, it is soap based, I believe (unless it is the more rare type of detergent that Sport Wash is, I think).<br>
You can probably use a regular detergent that is uncented if you have fairly recently manufactured Fuzzi Bunz. I use All Free and Clear on mine without problems since they started using a fleece that doesn't hold onto residues as easily. Try one you feel comfortable trying and if you have problems, come back and we'll help you figure it out. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

Thanks for the feedback!<br>
My gut feeling is that SoapWorks won't work. I think I'll give Tide Unscented a try...
