different detergent for diapers and clothes?

Another newbie question-

I have been preparing my stash for LO using charlies, however on my clothes I use 7th generation liquid and tide/wisk for my husband. Will this cause buildup in the washer and affect the diapers? I dont mind using charlies on my clothes but my husband adores his tide! 

tia!

  • I used Tide (powdered) on our diapers. If you just want to use it on other clothes it shouldn't affect your diapers.

  • It will take time, but yes. Most newer washing machines actually have a sanitizing cycle... read your user manual for more info. If you regularly clean your washing machine, build up on diapers will not happen as frequently.
