My Cloth Diaper : Laundry Essentials

Over the past 6 months I’ve experimented with different types of detergents that are cloth diaper safe and at the same time that would make me happy. I started out with Cyle Mild Laundry Detergent – this one was a mild scent to it, proven to be hypoallergenic, can be purchased at a grocery near me which was great but for me it took 4 to 5 rinses to make sure the nappies are all rinsed out that’s the only thing I didn’t like about it. I moved on to Charlie’s Soap just because I read about it and heard great reviews about it in a forum I joined, Charlie’s Soap has no scent at all, it rinses out well and it gives me the feeling of clean that I want BUT this is just based on my experience I’ve read somewhere that it causes rashes for other babies, but to each is own, right? the only slight disadvantage about it is, shedding out Php 650.00 for a tub, unlike Cycles it comes in packs of 3′s for Php 100.00 plus Charlie’s Soap isn’t available at local groceries, it can however be purchased online through online multiply sellers and can be purchased at SM Baby Company. I purchase mine online it’s more convenient for me that way. A tub would last 2 to 3 months depending on what I wash aside from Cloth Diapers. The next one I tried out was the all famous Tide Original (US) like Charlie’s Soap I read about it and decided to give it a shot, works well, no stink or repelling issues, BUT this one I only had the chance to get a box when I had the opportunity to go to Duty Free Philippines and I’ve also heard it’s available at S&R, but both are inaccessible to me.

I use Oxiclean Baby for stubborn stains, this is a product not readily available off the rack, I purchased mine online and at times there’s a certain scarcity of the product, I just purchased a tub and used just for the heck of it really, I don’t see the need of using it regularly.

Last on my list is Grandma’s Secret Spot Remover, like all the products I purchased I heard and read about it, this one works well on SPOTS, so if you have a HUGE spot like the size of your palm you’re better off using Oxiclean. Like Oxiclean Baby I used it on poop stains, those tiny little stubborn stains – it works well.

At the end of the day, it’s really up to you on what you want to use, as long as it works for you then so be it right?
