Arm and Hammer. Tide is way too expensive, I only buy it if I have to. I have to use the ones for sensitive skin. Unfortunately when I go to the store I dont always find the detergent I need.

I buy mine from the bulk section at a food co op. No suds. No scent. Cleans gently. Liquid. I can't even walk down the soap aisle in a grocery store without choking. So much of it is overkill with the scent. I don't like my clothing to reek of after shave, and that's what so much of it resembles. Many brands cause contact dermatitis.

I was a Tide fanatic also but once they switched all of the liquid to the 2x or 3x power and you were paying a bunch more for a smaller bottle I got discouraged... now I use Gain. It seems to work just as well and smells great too

All of the Moms said..."WOW...what detergent do you use?"

This is the first intelligent question I have seen on the forum tonight. Most of the time the questions are about something that is not going to change if 50 million people want it to. You asked something that could do somebody some good.

I use Wind Fresh that I buy at Sam's; but the detergent that I find that I like is a new detergent called Purex. Smells good and gets the clothes clean. I use that brand of fabric softener also.

We are storing things in our garage that are water tight and the Wind Fresh container is just perfect for the storage. It is almost like getting the detergent free because the container would cost almost as much as the detergent if we had to buy many of them. When I get enough of the containers, I will probably go back to buying whatever is on sale.

When my husband was repairing cash registers and getting the dirt on his white shirts and my son was playing baseball, I always used Oxydol. I think it has some ingredient that is against the law in North Carolina now. I actually had one of those experiences where two mothers were discussing how I got my son's baseball uniform so clean after a muddy game. They asked me what detergent I used to clean it. I looked at the other uniforms and sure enough, his was much whiter than any of the others.

BTW cheap hair spray is good for getting that permanent blue cash register ink out of white shirts.

I agree with you on the Gain. Unfortunately my husband does not. It really gets the clothes clean and is usually reasonably priced, but he cannnot stand the smell. He counts too, so to respect his wishes, I don't use it anymore. I think it has a really nice fresh smell.

I have never been able to use Tide. I tried a couple of times and a family member would get a rash everywhere the clothes touched his skin.
