When it comes to cloth diapering, washing is the number one sand trap. I’ve seen moms who’ve been cloth diapering for years suddenly panic over their washing routine.
If I had a dime for every washing combination out there I’d certainly be able to afford an entire stash of Goodmamas!
After 3 years of washing cloth diapers I have found a system that works best for my family. You have to remember that there are many factors that come into play when choosing a detergent for your cloth diapers.
1) Do you want to use the same detergent for your cloth diapers and clothes?
2) Is anyone in the family sensitive to scents?
3) Do you have hard, soft, or in between water?
4) What type of diapering system are you using?
5) Are you on a tight budget?
All of these answers affect each other. For example, you are using Tide for your clothes and would like to wash your diapers in it. If your baby has sensitive skin they may develop a rash even if their clothes never caused one. If you have soft water and use fitteds it will be necessary to do extra rinses, especially using a strong detergent like Tide. If your budget is tight the extra rinses (sometimes 2 or 3) can add up fast.
Tide works great for many families. The key is finding the right amount necessary to get the diapers clean and yet not create a nasty buildup monster.
We have soft water and I prefer to use one detergent for all my laundry. My husband is sensitive to scents and we prefer a natural detergent. Although my budget isn’t that tight I don’t want to be running to the store every 3 weeks for another $11 bottle of detergent.
So what is our solution(s)?
Here are my requirements:
*light-meaning rinses out of clothes easily
*smell: me-strong, husband-natural and light
Crunchy Clean meets all of these requirements. I had gotten away from using Crunchy Clean and adopted Mrs. Meyers. I love Mrs. Meyers for every reason except that it is pricey and only lasts about 3 weeks. Since receiving my new order of Crunchy Clean I’ve been kicking myself for all the money I’ve wasted!
My husband’s sensitive nose did get overlooked when I chose my scent choices. I purchased Peppermint Eucalyptus and Gardenia. When I die please sprinkle me with Gardenias and Gardenia scented Crunchy Clean! This is what heaven has to smell like!
Crunchy Clean is owned and operated by Ashley Brummer. She is an extremely busy and devoted WAHM. Often times we think when ordering from a WAHM that the product is just sitting there waiting to be shipped.
On the contrary, many WAHMs custom make each order. As is customary in other businesses (like my mom’s beaded cross business) expect at least a week before shipping occurs.
