Honest Co Laundry Detergent...for diapers?

I just placed an order with Honest for baby wash and lotion and decided to throw the laundry detergent in there. It says free and clear, no residues whiteners etc...I think I'll try it on my diapers? For 70 loads it seems less expensive than Tiny Bubbles and other diaper detergents I've used. Anyone out there tried this detergent or should I keep it for the newborn (clothing) laundry?

Diaper Jungle rates it really well and as safe for CDs. Found this cool comparison chart the other day. http://www.diaperjungle.com/detergent-chart.html

I know GroVia doesn't recommend it because of plant oils

If I was going to order, I'd go with the laundry pods over the liquid based on the ingredients. The liquid does not have the ingredients that I feel would clean diapers well enough. The pods were similar enough to Country Save powder (which I love!) that I would feel comfortable at least trying it. I thought about ordering a bundle recently since it would be simple for me, but then I realized all the scented products are citrus scented and I have a kiddo with an orange allergy.
