    Me too however I have found that getting drive is hard lately as it is not always stocked. I have tried several other brands and found the following:
    cold power was okay
    Dynamo with sard, total crap, did not clean well at all
    Omo, made the clothes smell like spew.

    So for me, Drive is the best.

    I also use vinegar as fabric softener.

    Omo Ultimate because it smells heavenly and is the most effective at getting out stains and stuff. I have tried pretty much everything else and figure it's worth the extra because it works first go.

    An eco ball which has charcoal in it. Everything comes out cleaner than with detergent, I have found and really soft as well. No smell though.

    For my DS clothes and wraps I have made up a sunlight soap liquid.

    I use radiant, I buy it in the big box when it's on sale at Coles $27 for 5kg, I've tried switching but DH gets a rash when I go to other brands, I use nappysan also but now that I'm reading the Aldi brand is good I'm gone to try that

    I order my washing powder through my work, it's free from all harmful chemicals and lasts me for months! I absolutely love it.

    If I buy it rather than make it, I buy whatever is most economical at the time. In our emergency pack I have a small box of Smart Buy brand, which I have never used before but figure it will do us fine in an emergency. I try to buy the most environmentally friendly but we are limited by income.
