I was on etsy and saw this cloth diaper detergent for a really good price called 'stink pot' StinkPot Cloth Diaper Laundry Detergent 50 to by showertreatsoap

For $12.99 it will do 100 HE loads. It got awesome reviews by thousands of people but I have not heard of it. I bought a trial pouch for $5 to try but am scared to try it for some reason, not sure why but I am.

Any thought?

My thoughts:

When you add in shipping, it is $19 for 50 standard/100 HE loads. I am pretty sure you can find cheaper detergents locally and then you also don't have to worry about ordering more when you run out.

The ingredients are basically oxygen bleach powder/oxyclean main ingredients, borax, and a surfactant (soap/detergent part) ingredient derived from coconut. These are all fine ingredients for most people, it looks similar to Country Save powder if I recall those ingredients correctly. Personally I prefer a detergent that contains enzymes because I have found that those work better for me.

Hope that helps

I agree with shen7, you can buy locally for a little cheaper. I've never heard of tht detergent but again like Shen said it reminds me of country save. I've had a few people I know not have good experience with it and then some who have had. Your detergant choice is going to really be based off of you water and how "toxic" the kiddos urine is. I know my daughter had some potent pee and we had to switch to tide bc the " cloth diaper" safe detergant I was using ( ECOs) was not cutting it. Its going to be trial and error for a little bit while you figure out your water and how the detergent you choose will react with it.

Good luck mama

good points ThAnks ladies! My gut is telling me to go with good ol' tide and call it a day. I have a brand new Kenmore elite HE front loader (the big one) which is made by samsung.
I think it is the same washer basically that you have shen7 also my water situation seems to be about the same as yours so I think after reading a recent post of your about washing I am going to try and copy it and see how it works for me

Sounds like a plan CD laundry sometimes takes some tweaking to figure out a system that meets your needs. Let us know if you run into any issues when you start out! But usually once you get the hang of it, you develop the confidence to just try stuff and see if it works. I hope my system works for you!
