What a great resource... Totally going to bookmark that site! I was pleased the find that the Free & Clear version of ECOS is one of the top recommendations since We like that brand a lot in our home!

Default Re: Cloth diapers and which laundry detergents to use/avoid - a wonderful chart!

So I have been using a DIY detergent for almost a year, but now I am wondering if my 14month old is growing out of her diapers or if they need stripped? I used disposables with my oldest one, so leaking meant a new size. How can you tell if your diapers need stripped or if they are the wrong size? How do you strip diapers?
Thanks

I have never stripped ours. They have been stinkier lately....but last load i used a different concoction (usually use hard rock), added an extra rinse & line dried in the sunshine....here's hoping.

I found that my double-stuffed microfibers tend to leak...like baby was sitting on a full sponge ;P i now do a newborn prefold under a microfiber & *rarely* get leaks.

Iccourtney, what kind of diapers & can you share your soap recipe?
