Oh hey, thanks for stopping by to read this. Just wanted to mention that I paid for these products myself and I wasn’t asked to write, nor was I compensated for this post in any way. Cloth diaper detergent is an important issue for me and I just wanted to share. All opinions are my own! 🙂

Washing cloth diapers can be a hot button issue, and choosing a cloth diaper detergent is a polarizing subject. I’ve been a loyal Tide user for 5 of my 5 1/2 years of cloth diapering and weathered the change to the Ultra formula and Tide with Actilift. So what made me break up with Tide? The recent scent change, which they denied to me but confirmed to others. I even tried opening the box to air it out but I just couldn’t do it. Sorry Tide, you had to go. I tried Gain but it wasn’t love. I’d heard a lot about Persil Pro Clean Power Pearls and decided to give it a try. Move over Tide, there’s a new cloth diaper detergent in my laundry room!

What is Tide Actilift, and Will it Damage My Cloth Diapers?

Tide Actilift and washing #clothdiapers - via @chgdiapers

Many families use Tide on their cloth diapers, and any time the formula is changed, they worry. All Tide has been “ultra” for the past few years, and it is simply a more concentrated formula. Then Actilift crystals appeared, and users started to wonder what they were, and whether they’d damage their diapers. I realize that cloth diaper detergent is a hot button issue, and some people feel strongly that you should never use mainstream detergents. This post is not for those people. If you do use Tide, this post is for you!
