* NOTES

1 - Reasons for not recommending a detergent may include customer reports of skin rashes, wicking, leaking, repelling fleece, smelly non-clean or dingy
diapers. Detergent may contain enzymes which interfere with diaper performance. Our ONLY criteria for a YES was that it should clean the diapers and not
interfere with performance in any way.

2 - bumGenius recommendations are referenced are taken from the Pinstripes & Polkadots sites, which uses a star system. Items listed as yes received 4
or 5 stars and items listed as no received 1 or 2 stars from Pinstripes



3 - Bum Genius advises AGAINST the use of any laundry additives. They advise using 1/8 (FOR HE) to 1/4 (TOP LOADER) cup of bleach once a month for
any odor issues. Water temputure of 150 degrees should not be exceeded and sanitizing cycles are generally too hot and should not be used.


4 - Fuzzi Bunz does not recommend use of Free and Clear detergents, baby soaps, most natural detergents and ultra concentrated detergents

5 - Thirsties advises consumers to use detergents recommended by diaperjungle.com. Yes refers to detergents which diaperjungle claims contain no
enzymes, brighteners, dyes, fragrance, softeners.

6 - Only for use on Kissaluvs Fitteds or Cotton Prefolds. Experienced wicking and leaking on all other diapers that was hard to recover from. Do not use
on a pocket diaper or PUL or any covers. Contains citrus oils as surfectant.


7 - MAYBE. Original Liquid that includes a small amount of brightener and scent as well as the Free and Clear versions (not concentrated) have been used
by our customers with success in Southern California. However, Purex has now reformulated and concentrated this detergent and we have not tested it
under the new formulation.

9 - Trader Joe's no longer uses the Cleanliness Next to godliness label. This detergent under its current label contains enzymes and citrus oils which are
not recommended with cloth diapers
