I detest dreft.
So I went to dreft. it was the only option. So I've used it for a couple of months now-and guess what? It's HORRIBLE! Clothes don't get clean, and it doesn't even smell good! EM's clothes are stained with puke and formula no matter how much I was them, and they have this gross half "mountain breeze" and fabreeze smell to them which I find nauseating now. After EM started getting rashes on her chin and chest, we were afraid it was from our detergent as her skin is a little crazy, and i started washing everything is Dreft. I feel like my clothes weren't clean for a month! After realizing it was just from too much drool, I went back to my trusty tide-loving the smell and the clean feeling.
I have decided that just because Dreft is "color free with no harsh fragrances" its not worth the almost double price tag of my tide concentrate (which, may I add is also better for the environment!). No as soon as she is old enough, we will be making our own detergent that is eco friendly, but since I don't know what that would do to the baby skin, we're switching to tide free concentrate with no dyes or fragrances. That'll do the trick, and I won't have that dumb dreft smell in my nose constantly. Another thing I learned, and another reason they should have a mama school.
