I received a sample of Maggie's Soap Nuts (lavendar liquid version) and loved it on my daughter's clothing! I thought, 'Fantastic, a natural laundry soap for my baby's clothes!' So, I ordered 34oz bottles. I not only had a hard time ordering and receiving (but that is not the point) but my diapers aren't coming out clean!!!!!
I rinse ALL of my diapers, wet or soiled, in the toilet first. I place them into a dry pail with a mesh bag. Every other day I wash my diapers, almost always doing a quick rinse first. I use 1oz (the amount called for a HE washer) of the detergent and the diapers, at first, came out smelling nice. I have been using this method since Christmas Eve (the day I received the detergent via UPS) and I have stopped since.
After 3 weeks, I noticed my diapers were smelling soiled still once the wash was over! I washed with Maggie's detergent another 3 times, and noticed the same soiled smell everytime. I consulted ME and they suggested going back to my previous detergent for a few washes and see how they come out. Finally, after 2 washes with my previous detergent, they smell and feel clean again.
I'm a little nervous to go back to Maggie's, and I'm afraid to use it on her clothing, incase they aren't getting properly cleaned.
