The Great Cloth Diaper Stink Experiment & Laundry Detergent Giveaway {Part Three}

Welcome to part {{THREE}} of The Great Cloth Diaper Stink Experiment!

This installment includes diaper drama, bubbly badness, and a daring feat called "The Sniff Test".

After my initial assessments of the three laundry detergents, I dove right in and got started.  I divided my diapers and liners into three groups and paired each group with one of the three detergents.

Pink and Purple Diapers and Plain Liners
Thirsties Super Wash

Blue and Green Diapers and Wonderfulls Liners
Rockin' Green Classic Rock

Red, Yellow, and Orange Diapers and Liners with Buttons
Charlie's Soap Laundry Powder

After the first rinse, there were tons of bubbles from my previous detergent (all small and mighty free and clear).  I always rinse at least three times after the wash cycle so I was kind of surprised to find this much residue coming out.  Look at all those bubbles!

Gross right?  

I decided to judge the detergents based on the results of a these different tests:

The Sniff Test 
(after washing is complete)

The Second Sniff Test 
(after drying is complete)

The Pee Test 
(Does the diaper stink as soon as anything wet hits it?)

The Softness Test
(how the diaper feels after being washed)

The Absorbency Test
(Does the diaper/liner soak up wetness or repel it?)

Check Back Soon to find out how each detergent did when put up against my strict standards and super hero sense of smell!

And don't forget to check out Part One to enter the giveaway for a chance to win a package of the winning detergent!

I just found you from the Minnesota Cloth Diapering Moms and Dads group- looking forward to your results! RnG and Charlies have both caused massive rashes on my boys and I have been wanting to try the Thirsties but afraid to try something new again.
