i use fb and prefold and covers and i use dawn original and a little borax in every load of dipes i do. i ALWAYS do SUPER hot water for the washes and rinses and i haven't had a problem. ummm....i'm not sure exactly how much borax i use, just 1/4 to 1/2 a cup maybe?? i'm really not good with guessing measurements! i don't know if that helped you any though!

I would say about 4 tablespoons of Borax for a full load - as well you could use Borax for the presoak (sometimes I do both if James has decided to double his poopy diaper output ) as for Dawn that's always great for stripping just make sure you strip em well!
