I’ve been reviewing the new Tiny Bubbles Laundry Detergent from The Natural Baby Company and have been pleasantly surprised. I typically am not a powder detergent gal, but I found it easy to use and that it washed my diapers well. As many of you know, it is best if you try and use the same kind of detergent for most of your laundry when using cloth diapers, so that residues from other detergents don’t keep lurking back into your machine or have any chemical reactions. So this laundry is an excellent choice for a detergent that is safe for cloth diapers and great for all of your laundry.
One of the “pros” is that the box is made of cardboard so it is recyclable, but a “con” is that once it’s opened you can’t get the lid to secure tightly. I have mine in a ziplock bag to keep the powder contained and to keep any moisture out. The only other struggle I had was digging out the laundry scoop which was, of course, on the bottom of the box!! The other “pros” are that they meet all the “free of….” requirements of a cloth diaper detergent, but also is completely biodegradable, low residue, ultra-concentrated and safe for sensitive skin.
I have come to smell a difference when using Tide Free vs. other detergents like Maggie’s Soapnuts (I *heart* the liquid version with tea tree and lavendar oils) although Tide Free is also an acceptable choice to use with cloth diapers (at least the HE version in my experience). There was no “scent” after using this detergent so I know that my laundry is clean and free of synthetic materials.
