Does anyone use Charlie's Soap and borax? If so, how often do you use the borax? Every wash? Every few washes?

I have GMD prefolds and Thirsties covers. Can I wash them both together with the Charlie's/borax combo?

Thank you for your help-- Baby is due in a couple of weeks and I want to make sure my washing routine is right!

I don't think you'll know whether your wash routine is just right until after you've been doing it a while, honestly. It all depends on your water (where you live), the pipes of your house, and how the soap you first choose interacts with your water. I used Charlie's with nothing at all from the time my daughter was 7 months old until she turned 2 and then it stopped working because her pee changed to toxic toddler pee Nuke I wouldn't add the borax right away because newborn pee and poo is so easily washable by CHarlies. The only problem that might arise is skin sensitivity, which some kids have to CHarlies. Good luck!

Thanks so much! The GMD instructions stressed that Charlie's didn't disinfect, which kind of freaked me out. I'm glad it worked for you on its own-- I'll start there and see how it goes!
