Mommy here is allergic to tide. Additives decrease diaper absorbency, among other things. And, I don't trust Proctor and Gamble

Hard water (mountains) and liquid tide user. We've been using it 18 months with no problems.

This one is funny to me! I need to get ahold of some Citric Acid to add to my detergent. I have really hard water too. I'm glad I already dissolve my borax, washing & baking soda in my homemade detergent that I make in 3 gallon batches for the cost of a high-end $6 bar of soap and 3 cups of the above.

Re: Is Tide really okay?

btw, I'm going to cut borax out of my next not batch. My Kawaii are supposed to like it. this lady http://myhealthygreenfamily.com/blog/wordpress/homemade-borax-free-laundry-detergent/#comment-2232 really hates it. On Borax I might be as you all are with Tide. And my water on the south end of Mad Isle is crazy hard because of bedrock or something.

Re: Is Tide really okay?

I'm a nerd, I'm having an off/down day and baby are I are having sleeping contests, apparently
DTPA in regular liquid Tide
http://www.ametsoc.org/stationscientist/documents/dtpa.pdf
Who Can Take DTPA
Ca-DTPA is safe for most adults, but it should not be taken by people who have kidney disease or bone marrow depression. Also, Ca-DTPA should not be taken by children younger than 18 years of age, by pregnant women, or by people who have bone marrow problems. Ca-DTPA should be used with caution in patients suffering from a severe form of a disease called hemochromatosis. Children and pregnant women who are under a doctor's care can take small doses of Zn-DTPA. Ca-DTPA and Zn-DTPA should not be used to treat people who are internally contaminated with the radioactive materials uranium (www.bt.cdc.gov/radiation/isotopes/uranium.asp) or neptunium.
Side Effects of DTPA
Most DTPA is excreted (released) in the urine within 12 hours after it is given, so it does not build up in the body or cause long-term health effects. Side effects of treatment with DTPA can include headache, lightheadedness, chest pain, metallic taste in the mouth, nausea, diarrhea, and itching skin, but these symptoms decrease between treatments. Also, DTPA increases the loss of certain minerals (zinc, magnesium, and manganese) from the body, but supplements can be taken to offset this loss.

Re: Is Tide really okay?

I've been using Tide(prefer powder because it rinses cleaner than the liquid with extra stabilizers, etc) for the last five years and have never had an issue with build-up, never needed to strip, etc. When we lived at a townhouse with ridiculously hard water- to the point where everything white that we owned was brown if we let the water softener get low - I used liquid Calgon as well. Just one capful in every load was fine.

Re: Is Tide really okay?

I have used tide for 8 years on diapers. Never an issue. I have EXTREMELY hard well water. I use POWDER (liquid causes build up for me) and the FULL scoop.
