Detergent for Clothes and Detergent for Dipes???? Or use the same?

Okay that was a long title. But my ? is should we be using the same detergent for EVERYTHING? Or is it ok to use a diff. detergent on your clothes? I'm just wondering if that may cause build up issues if I'm using Tide HE on my clothes...or Sun whichever I use.

Sun is cheap, effective and you can use it on both.

I use SUN and FAB on my clothes and dipes. I've never washed separate so it really hasn't mattered to me. Our dipes go in with our clothes. Am I the only one that does that? LOL

I do seperate washes for our clothes and diapers.

I wouldn't wash them together myself.

I do seprate loads for out dipes and our clothes..

I only use Gain on our clothes.. I use All free and clear for our diapers.. You can use the same thing but I love for our clothes to smell good, thats why I wouldnt use the free and clear on them..

I use the triple concentrated ALL HE on everything.. I just use about half as much on dipes as I do on clothes... that works out to about a teaspoon for a full load of diapers.. it's not much *at all*! I do add a tiny bit of dawn to my pre-wash.

I use two different kinds right now, one for clothes, and one for dipes. But, I don't think it really matters.

Whatever is easier for you, I guess. I change detergents a lot (for clothes), so I don't get build-up on my clothes. But, I'm sure there will be times when I use Sun on my clothes and dipes.
