Which brand of laundry detergent do you use? Do you use a specific one for baby? Do you have to use a special one for sensitive skin for anyone?

We have been using Arm & Hammer Free of dyes and perfumes, but I don't like it that much. I feel like I have to use a LOT to get the clothes smelling clean and when I use too much, I have to rinse twice. Is there something better? I've tried the Tide Free & Clear, but I also had to use a lot. I want to try a mild regular detergent to see if our two oldest (who have sensitive skin) can handle it, but I also have to consider Elijah. How long do you have to use special detergent for babies?

I use All Free and Clear for all of our laundry. Seems to work fine.

We use All Free & Clear for everyone, too. I never used anything else, even with preemies, and it works great! When I have sheets that have been peed on, I put 1/4 cup vinegar in the fabric softener hole, and that helps neutralize the pee smell.

Along with the ALL Free & Clear, I also bought a different Arm & Hammer liquid. It says it's for sensitive skin, but it has a fragrance that is supposedly okay for sensitive skin. It does smell good... we'll see if our two oldest are okay with it (I washed a couple of their things in it to see).

When I was at Target, yesterday, I looked in the detergent isle and noticed that they have a Target brand free & clear detergent... has anyone tried it?

Also, has anyone tried Cheer Free & Clear?

We use MelaPower (Melaleuca's detergent) for everyone. It is good for sensitive skin and babies

We use Charlie's for her and I've started to use it for us as well. I do miss the scent of gain and will use that on stuff like our couch blankets.
