How to Pick a Detergent

Most household detergents will work but we do have some recommendations when picking a detergent: 

  • Fragrance Free
  • No bleach or softeners
  • Non Toxic

A holy grail in many cloth diapering households is Tide Powder. Other common detergents that follow these guidelines are Tide Free & Gentle, Persil Sensitive, and All Free & Clear. 

Our favorite plant based detergents are Seventh Generation, Biokleen, Method and Unicorn Baby Beyond Clean. 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.
