Using Allen's Detergent with Cloth Diapers
Allen's Cloth Diaper Detergent is very concentrated! One small bottle will go a looooong way. Each one quart bottle (32 fl. oz. or 946 mL), will wash approximately 128 loads of cloth diapers (32 standard loads of laundry) in a top-loading machine. If you're washing cloth diapers twice per week, this bottle should last you more than 6 months! Allens Naturally is an economical choice.
For top-loading machines: Start with a 1/2 of a capful (approximately 1 tablespoon, or .5 oz). If the diapers are not getting clean enough, increase your liquid slightly. Increase to no more than 2 tablespoons per load. If you have soft water, you should be able to use less. If you have hard water, you may need to use more.
For front-loading HE machines: Start with only 1 teaspoon or 1/4 of a capful (approximately .25oz) for each load. If the diapers are not getting clean enough, increase your liquid slightly. Increase to no more than 1 tablespoon per load.If you have soft water, you should be able to use less. If you have hard water, you may need to use more.

This is our specialty! We're very familiar with the water parents in this region are working with, and Allen's consistently remains the number one choice for parents. It ranks highest for getting cloth diapers clean, with no reaction to baby's skin.
Our recommendation for this area: top-loading machines use 1-2 tablespoons (.5oz-1oz) and front-loading machines use 1 tablespoon (1/2 ounce).This will be something you'll need to play with, to get the right amount depending on your machine. Don't worry about bubbles with Allen's! You also don't want to use more than is necessary, simply for economics sake.
If you've purchased the Gallon size Bulk bottle (avaiable in our Barrie store only), each pump with the restrictor is about 1/4 of an ounce. This bottle should last 9-12 months if reserved for diaper laundry only. That's a great value!
