Thirsties Superwash combo
I have always been a simpler is better, cheaper is even better type of cloth diaperer. I do try everyone of the products we carry. How could I sell and promote a product I haven't tested? So, I am using a Value pack at home on our diapers.
Here is the Thirsties information on their Super Wash and Prewash value pack:
Thirsties® Pre-Wash and Super-Wash cloth diaper detergents are custom formulated by a chemist to clean your cloth diapers. The active antimicrobial ingredients in Thirsties® Pre-Wash loosen and rinse away waste and bacteria. This detergent is used during the pre-rinse cold wash to help reduce stains. The Thirsties® Super-Wash is used during the HOT wash. It adds probiotic, a good bacteria, to reduce odor and diaper rash.
Completely non-toxic solution
Custom formulated by a chemist specifically for use in pre-washing cloth diapers
Washes completely clean; will not leave residue
Highly concentrated to reduce costs and carbon output
Pre-clean with 1/2 ounce Thirsties® Pre-Wash on COLD (if your machine has a pre-wash cycle, use it; if not, use a short cycle). Follow with 1/2 ounce of Thirsties® Super Wash in heavy cycle on HOT with an extra rinse.
Detailed Washing Recommendations
Thirsties Pre-Wash: 32 fluid ounces (64 loads)
Thirsties Super-Wash: 32 fluid ounces (64 loads)
MADE IN THE USA
Now I have to admit that my first thought was WOW $31.00 is a lot of money for 32oz of pre-wash and detergent. BUT having tried this on our old dingy diapers I have to say WOW that stuff REALLY works! I normally use the Planet brand detergent on our diapers. While Planet does get them clean, and smelling fresh, the Thirsties Pre-wash and superwash left them whiter, much whiter! Thirsties pre-wash really lifts out even old set in stains, plus it breaks down the bacteria that can lead to diaper rashes. Thirsties created a great product.
In order to make my Thirsties bottles last longer, since it is a $31.00 investment I use this combination on every other diaper load.
Green Pixie Baby gives the Thirsties Value Pack two thumbs up! Thanks Thirsties!
Have a great day,

- Hello my name is Marie. I have four healthy, beautiful children. When our latest blessing joined our lives in November 2008 we decided to do the best thing for her and our planet. We went the cloth diapering route. During our search for cloth diapers we found limited availability in our area. We knew that we were not the only family facing this dilemma. Together we decided that we were going to help bring the green trend of cloth diapering to Franklin, TN. So here we are! We specialize in American made cloth diapers and baby products. Spreading the love of cloth diaper fluff and American made stuff one baby at a time. www.greenpixiebaby.com won’t you join us in saving our planet and parenting green?
