soap nuts, RLR, and Charlie Banana (have a question about each of these)
ok ill start with the easiest (i hope). at a target by my dads they had cloth diapers in store! they only had Charlie Banana brand. i had a $20 gift card and really didnt need anything so i decided to buy one of the diapers to see how it works (we really need more diapers in our stash...long story). so here is the question have you ever tried them and how did you like them/ what have you heard about them. i only bought 1 and it was free cuz i had the gift card but i would like to know your experiences with this brand.
next is RLR. has anyone used this to strip and how well of a job did it do. we have a top loader thats a little old and we have hard water.
Last but not least is soap nuts. if you have used them did you use them on just cd or all your laundry. does it work well? we have been using rockin green. we have hard water so we use the formula for hard water, up until recently its been working really well, have you ever had a buildup from soap nuts?
our wash cycle has been a prewash in cold with funk rock (its a product from rocking green to help with ammonia), wash with 2 scoops or soap, and then 3 hot rinses(it was two but since we moved to this apt it has increased to 3 because the washer is slowly dying. maintenance is supposed to come tomorrow to fiz/replace it) even with all the rinses it the diapers smell sometimes and i think its a build up. i want to get some rlr and strip them and then use soap nuts for our laundry and diapers to prevent build up from happening again... but i want to know if the products are going to work before i buy them.
