Smell, cleaning power, cost. I always watch for allergies etc. But once I find one I really love it takes a lot to change it.

Ds1 has pretty bad eczema, so I knew I needed to get a free and clear detergent and Ecos is natural and cheap so I get that. It also worked best for when I was cloth diapering.

I make my own detergent for pennies on the dollar and it is gentle on skin :-)

We make our own detergent. It only takes three ingredients and is not very complicated. My partner has full body eczema so his skin is about as sensitive as it can get. I have sensative skin and as a baby it was super sensative. Our recipe is sent free but you could always add essential oils if you want it to smell better, or just use some dryer sheets so it smells nice (we also make ourselves but you could probably find some that work best for you).

I know as a busy mom you probably think "OMG making my own laundry detergent! I don't have time for this buisness" but it saves us a lot of money, wear and tear on cloth diapers and heart ache while trying different detergents and things. Not too bad. I can help if you are considering the idea.

we do couponing so we have about 5 bottles of detergent right now, 2 bottles of all, 2 bottles of tide and 1 bottle of purex.  Yes I know thats a lot but its nice not to have to buy it for awhile and i really couldn't pass up paying around $1 for each one.

Gain, Apple Mango Tango. Nothing smells better to my family, I've been using it for years!!!

I didn't do the influencer for this product, but ill give my opinion :> my daughter has eczema and I have found only ALL works on her skin. I love fresh smelling clothes and free and clears have no scent. So, I buy me small bottles of Tide April Fresh for myself. I know Tide makes a free & clear but I'm scared to try it on DD.
