|I use soap nuts for my diapers and am happy with them but they don't get my other laundry really clean. Juice stains, dirt, etc and other stuff that I think should wash out, don't. I'm too lazy to pretreat or do much of anything else. I've tried a number of different eco-friendly detergents and haven't been impressed. I'm considering going back to good old Tide or something but thought I'd get some input first. I have a top loader (though same results with an front loader) and usually wash in warm. I looked at Charlie's Soap webpage and am considering that but am still a bit doubtful.
