I need a mew detergent

Yes, it's a detergent thread..

I ran out of tide original powder, which worked well for us for a year and a half no issues in our soft to regular water. I've tried target pristine clean and it just isn't rinsing out well. (5 rinses) even with little soap. So now what do I try?

please excuse craziness - I am on my phone

Re: I need a mew detergent

How long have you tried the target detergent? I ask because when I first started with it I got a TON of suds but after a bit far less and now I don't get much at all.

I use tide original powder mostly. They still make the original in liquid form. I have used it before with no issues

I've had great luck with Sun Free & Clear liquid, I have hard water and have been using it for 6 months with no issues. It's like half the price of Tide!

I say give the target a couple more washes. I had major bubbles for several washes after switching from tide, but now I have almost none. I think it was the tide residue coming out. And FTR, I never knew that I had tide residue, my diapers showed no sign of repelling, stink, etc.
