    7th Generation free & clear. It’s what works best for DS’s eczema.

    We’ved moved out for a mont and on our second bottle of arm and hammer laundry detergent that his parents gave us. My mom gave us a huge purex bottle from costco since it was on sale and she didn’t realize shoe still had 3 at home lol. i also bought tide cold water from Walmart had their anniversary sale and I heard good things about it And hope it’ll save us money. I’ve only tried thhandmade and hammer so far but I find SO’s gym clothes are still kinda smelly.. We got a sample of tide sport that ill try next time. I don’t think I helped but just wanted to contribute to the thread!

    @rcac1208:  I’ve used Purex and nothing else for the past 5 years, so I may be biased, but I say go back to Purex.  I love the way it cleans, without “overfragrancing my clothes” like some other detergents do.  I also do a lot of my wash on cold, and it cleans everything wonderfully every single time.

    @rcac1208:  I use all-natural brands, the big-box brands have tons of chemicals and I don’t want to get those into our local water system.

    @rcac1208:  Yup, Costco makes several kinds of Kirkland laundry detergents, my mom uses them (I think she switches it up a few times a year) and loves them!

     I use Tide pods, they work better on my nasty scrubs and DHs greasy work clothes too. I did use generic but it just wasnt cutting it

    I use the PC/Superstore version of Tide free for most things except darks, which I use Woolite dark for. The PC version of Woolite Dark has a different scent that I’m allergic to, otherwise we’d use it.

    It’s some organic brand, I don’t remember the name off the top of my head. None of those listed though.

    Another vote for Arm & Hammer for sensitive skin…not because I have sensitive skin but I just hate the thought of all those chemicals washing down the drain into the ecosystem. Plus, they tell you to use way too much per load…I cut my amount in half and there is no noticeable difference in our (clean!) clothes.

    @BrandNewBride:  I tried that and don’t feel like it worked well at all 🙁

    By The Way it’s not a target brand.

    Anyways, I feel like tide is the best detergent.

    Whatever is on sale! But usually Purex. Or if Fiance buys it, he always gets Tide.

    Lured naturals or Arm and Hammer naturals. Dr. Bronners, seventh generation and I also at times make my own. I refuse to pay for other detergents. You’re just buying concentrated perfume laden with chemicals that irritate skin and seriously harm the environment. Tide is my least favorite. Talk about hives in a bottle lol.
