I think Ecos comes in powder but am not sure. It is in the organic section ad almost every grocery store I shop in.

Cheer powder. Similar to Tide but better scent.

I use Country Save for the diapers and sometimes for regular laundry and it's been fine but I had to learn to use enough, plus now that I am dealing with super stinky toddler pee, to every wash I add Biokleen bleach plus Bac-out spray on the poopy diapers. I think it gets the diapers clean (as in bacteria-free) but this routine doesn't seem to remove stains very well.

I am interesting in switching to something "stronger" but like you want to stick with powder, so I've been searching for a store in my area that carries BioKleen Premium Plus powder--I think it may be one of the only "natural" detergents on the market that has enzymes.

Do you have an HE or regular washer? I wanted to try Tide, and I've researched all the Tide options and they do make a free and clear powder but it's not HE compatible. The only HE free and clear Tide is a liquid.

I have a regular washer but I'm allergic to tide. I have even tried the free and clear and it was no good. I have found that u have no issues with natural detergents. This far I gave absolutely no issues with Charlie's however I hear it can become less effective down the road. My son is EBF so it's easy. Have you ever used bacout for stink? I saw it on the shelf beside my soap and did some research...it seems like it could work with detergent.
