I’ve been using All Free & Clear for years. Our first baby is due next week (OMG!) and I’ve already washed her clothes in that. It does not have a scent.

I can tell you a very easy way to make your own detergent that is gentle enough that we use with our babies clothes as well as our own.

3 cups Borax

3 cups Washing soda    (both of these ingrediants are found in the detergent isle at a grocery store)

1 bar regular ivory soap.

Combine the Borax and washing soda then finely grate the ivory soap with a cheese grater.  Mix it all together and you have a cheap, easy, gentle detergent.   One or two tbsp in the washer is all it takes per load. 

I put the stuff in tupperware and use it in my HE washer, it works very well and lasts a while.  If I have any tought stains I just use a tough stain remover but most of my clothes don’t typically have them

We use Free and Clear and it has no scent at all. Dreft smells really strong but I always liked it!
