What type of laundry detergent do you use?

I used Costco brand, but am looking into getting something that smells better.

Also, how do you get grease stains out of shirts? I think I spill something on every single blasted shirt I own!

  • I use All free and clear on all of our clothes except for my husband's uniform. For that I use Woolite. I love the smell of Gain, but my son broke out in a rash when I used it.

  • Conklin's Waush, and for stains/grease spots/anything that doesn't wash out the first time, I use Mox to "pretreat". They work better than anything else I've ever used, without any of the harsh chemicals and nasty fillers that are in everything else (including the so-called "free & clear" detergents).

  • Gain is the one I try to buy, but if my wallet is bare, I will buy whatever is cheapest, but I will notice my clothes only come clean with Gain.
