Thanks to Myra for this Frugal Baby Tip!
Okay, my bar of "natural clear glycerin" soap from www.soapsaloon.com arrived today. It's about the size of a SPAM. Anyway, it was very easy to cut. I cut off a slice about 1/4-1/3 (from memory) inch thick with an old kitchen knife I won't use for anything else. I chopped it as best I could.
Divided that amount in half (half amounted to about 1-1 1/2 ounce). Used it for a cold wash and used the other half for a hot wash. Used vinegar and a clear rinse. My diapers came out wonderfully clean and fresh-smelling and white. I looked at each diaper, and even though some had tremendous amounts of bowel movement on them and I -knew- some of them had old stains from a wash cycle with detergent a couple of days ago, but all the dipes looked clean and white! Now maybe it was just the light I was looking at them in (artificial), but they all looked so clean!
