Thanks to Laura for this Frugal Baby Tip!
Another good soap is the "glycerine" soap. This does not leave any and I do mean any smell whatsoever on the clothes, it goes a long way, but it's a bit expensive.
If you get the basic soap noodles, and add either some orange oil or some peppermint oil, this will go a very long way to getting rid of stains, and the orange smells divine. I don't get along with candy-smelling diapers, which is why I personally prefer not to bother with the peppermint, but I've heard some very good things about it.
I know somebody who always puts a thick slice of pineapple in with the hot diaper wash too. She swears it gets rid of stains like you wouldn't believe. dunno, never tried it, you see, the pineapple gets eaten before it gets a chance to go in the washer!
