Would you let a mom that uses dreft borrow your dipes?

I won't need my Fuzzibunz OS dipes until well after baby comes in December so I decided to let a mom at church give them a test run since she CDs.  She said she uses "baby detergent, no dyes, chemicals, or fragrances".  I just wanted to make sure it was okay for her to wash it in this before I handed them over with no other instructions.  I think she uses GDiapers so I guess that's what she's been using on them.....  Thanks mamas!

  • Dreft is too mild to really get them clean.

  • Gawd no.  That stuff has so much perfume and additives it's disgusting.  I sort of feel sorry for the people that fall for the hype.

    ha! I was given a small bottle of it. I opened it up, got a whiff of the extream baby powder scent and threw it out.

  • I'd let her use them as long as she was willing to use a different detergent (heck, if she was only using them a few times to try fit or something I'd probably provide the detergent).  I'm really sensitive to detergent perfumes, though, and I think Dreft smells like ick and not being able to breathe.

  • I'd lend them only if she promises to use a CD safe detergent, definitely not Dreft.

  • Yep, Dreft gets a big no for me. Maybe if she was borrowing clothes, but not dipes. I need them to work.

  • Dreft would get a big no from me, too.

    When I loaned diapers to someone, I typed up "proper care" instructions and gave her the detergent I use. (She was using my dipes as a trial to see if she liked cloth, so she didn't have any previous experience or anything.)

    I would probably do it that way again, even it was someone who wasn't a newb to cloth, just b/c we all have our own way of caring for our diapers. Hopefully they would be understanding and not think I was overbearing or picky!
