Thanks xicloudix! Well, I guess I will buy a bottle of Kodomo detergent (normal / blue bottle) for washing of cloth diapers. Whereas baby's clothes I will resume using Pureen Kiddiwash + Napisan.
i think so, coz i called up the main branch n even went to a few stores/ big supermarket where there happen to have a sales person promoting pureen... they told me no more HAD production only ABD...but who knows, maybe once they know have a high demand for it they may bring it back
i once thought ABD is the same, and almost bought it...lucky i see the small wording carefully and realised that have enzyme and the sales still keep recommend me that for cloth nappy!
Pureen HAD discontinued already (I emailed them directly - both SG and MY - and I read that the contents is similar to Charlies' Soap which is another CD detergent but strange that they say that they are bringing the stuff in). One of my CD sellers suggested Kao Attack but need to make sure that it has no enzymes.
A lot of sales assistants will say that some detergents are okay for cloth nappy but they are really referring to lampins and not the modern CDs that we are talking about.
I'm actually using BumGenius Detergent and Rocking Road Green for the diapers (can buy BG detergent online from a supplier here in SG but RRG is directly from US supplier) at the mo. I prefer to spend a bit more on detergent as it will help maintain my cloth diapers, making them last longer. Wrong detergent often means more stripping which means more wear and tear on the CD.

Really hope that Pureen knows the high demand among cloth diaper users and decide to continue bringing HAD in.
Since son & I have eczema, we are wary of using very cheap detergent with no listed ingredients. Paranoid that the contents may be too harsh on delicate skin.
Also, we prefer to choose phosphate-free detergent, which is kinder to the environment, part of our reasons for cloth-diapering.
Hi mummies, I was wondering if Pigeon laundry detergent (liquid) can be used for mordern cloth diapers? I read the label but couldn't find anything that says bleach or softener... Therefore I would like another confirmation before I use it on my MooMooKow diapers - dont't wanna spoil the waterproof / PLU.
I smelled the Pigeon liquid detergent and "feels" that it could wash better & cleaner than Kodomo. So I am tempted to try... Hmmm...
I found another imported detergent but I really dont't know if it contains bleach / softener.... It's Purex Baby and 1.4l retailing at about $12.
Could anyone please help me to verify if it is safe to use on cloth diapers? Ultra Purex Baby - Soft hypoallergenic detergent for your baby
I think comparing Pigeon and Purex, it is more cost saving to buy Purex because:
Pigeon (600ml): $8-ish
Purex Baby (1.4l): $12
I remember sharing that Purex is not advisable as it contains fragrances and enyzmes or brightener. Might want to check this list - Cloth Diaper Detergent Chart - Best Detergent for Diapers
Can i use normal top powder?
Has anyone tried IDOCARE from Singapore? they seem to be economical and free of optical brighteners, NPE, parabens and even front loading machine friendly.
$12 for 50 loads... i guess that is ~ the same as Nellie's bought from iHerb (~$24 for 100 loads)
So if I am intending to buy detergent from the supermarket, I should only buy kodomo? Any other brands that are easily available?
Kodomo powder what i used for my baby to wash her clothes, since when she birth until now.
the smell is so good and i feel my baby is clean. :0
I have used tollyjoy, pigeon and kodomo. Try fr bronner's sal suds plus baking soda if those doesnt work. I was using sal suds before I got a helper and since she has no baby experience. It was a lot for her to adjust to since I use very little chemicals in my house. So I'm now using the commercial brands. I dont have problems with them though and my boy had very sensitive skin.
