How to Pick a Detergent

You do not need a special detergent to wash cloth diapers. Most household detergents will do the job but we do recommend against softeners and fragrance. A clean diaper is an odorless diaper. Our wool dryer balls are a great substitute to single use dryer sheets.

Our favorite non toxic detergents are Branch Basics Concentrate + Oxygen Booster, Biokleen + Enzymes, Dr Bronner's Pure Castille Soap and Dapple Baby. Generally, you may need to use 1.5x the recommended amounts in your wash routine to get the same cleaning power as a regular detergent.
