What detergent do you use? I have a HE washing machine and need something that will work in it. I hear mixed things about Tide. So, what do you moms use?

I read about that. I also saw that it has caused severe rashes or blisters. Do you know how common that is?

I alternate between...

(1) baking soda washes with vinegar rinses
(2) Charlie's or Rockin Green
(3) Dreft

I always make sure to do one full cold wash cycle as a "pre-rinse" cycle, one full hot wash cycle as a "wash" cycle, then one full cold wash cycle as  "final rinse" cycle. This strategy works very well for me, I really need that pre-rinse and final rinse before and after the hot wash.

 Hasn't happened to my kids, and I got it from a store that recommends it for their cloth diapers that she sells.  I mean, I am sure it happens...but I know some kids can be affected by anything.  Mine have not been though.  I like it, because I don't have to use all the vinegar and all that stuff...just one tablespoon of this and they get clean.  I really use nothing else!

All free and clear works very well-and is recommended for your type of washer.  It's great for their sensitive skin.  No dies, scents.  And is made for modern machines, and is  very cheap to buy-I think its $12 for a huge one, I get months of loads out of it-and use it for the familie's laundry too-and have a family of SIX!  So, lots of use.  It's 2-3 times concentrated.

I used everything. As long as it's very little it doesn't really matter

3 full wash loads? I used to do cold rinse, full hot wash, cold rinse and that took long enough!

Arm & Hammer plus Oxyclean. Water type can have different effects on detergents and your dipes. We tried All Free and Clear and it left a horrible build up. We have hard water, I switched and haven't had a problem since.

I use all free and clear on our regular clothing because I'm very allergic to almost all detergent. Do You have hard water? We have semi-hard water.

Our water is hard. 

The detergent works well with the water we have.
