5.0 out of 5 stars I'm Impressed, June 4, 2008

This review is from: Country Save HE Laundry Detergent, Powder, 160-Load, 10-lb Boxes (Pack of 4) (Health and Beauty)
I stumbled upon Country Save Laundry Detergent when I began cloth diapering in an attempt to be more environmentally friendly. I should mention that I have two kids and a husband who is a maintenance technician at a factory so we have tons of dirty, sometimes really dirty laundry.

I like that it has no scent so it doesn't irritate anyone's sensitive skin and it smells more fresh to me that way. It suds well and cleans better than most conventional, chemical laden soaps I've used before.

I am impressed that clothing, when hung on a line to dry, does not come out stiff. I think that was one of my bigger selling points, that and it has no fragrance or extras that causes liquids to repel. This is huge for cloth diapers.

I bought one 10 pound box, and use it in my top loader. We're on the same box about two months later so I'd say it's a good buy.

I'm hooked.

I don't have an HE washer - do you use the amount suggested on the box? or double? For diapers, do you do two wash cycles with half soap for each cycle?

I, too, don't have an HE washer and would love it if someone would answer J. lederer's questions.

If you look closely at the image of the box, it says 80 loads for top load/non-HE washers, 160 for front load. So, you'd use double the amount for your top loader.

I realize this is a little late for a reply, but thought it might help someone else... Cloth diapers are trial and error, however, usually less detergent is needed. I do not have a HE washer, and I just use a dash of Country save for my first cold wash, then a quarter scoop for the second hot wash. I believe this aligns with the amount suggested by BumGenius for their diapers. (I use a full scoop when I wash clothes).

Sorry, I'm just now seeing this now. I used about half a scoop in a regular washer. I now have an HE front loader and use very, very little about an eight of a scoop. It lasts forever. We aren't cloth diapering anymore but we love this stuff. It's great and lasts forever. I usually order two boxes and it lasts our family of four for about a year. And we do about 4 loads a week plus bedding.

Oh, as for the diapers, I remove the solids into the toilet then rinse them in the washer on cold then run a hot wash with soap and dry (either line or dryer) them.

I use less. I do a cold rinse in the washer and then run a hot cycle with the soap. Less is more! Again, sorry, I'm just now seeing your post.
