eco sprout detergent?

anybody tried eco sprout detergent? i just ordered a small bag to try. a friend of mine mentioned that she started using it on her grovia diapers and they have never looked/smelled cleaner.

i've been trying to get by with just the free and clear costco brand detergent, but my BG organics have not been getting clean or stink-free since we moved into a new house this summer with an HE washer. i miss my old top-loader! we also have a water softener at our new place, so maybe i'm using too much detergent and getting buildup? the diapers have started stinking of ammonia BIG time as soon as DS wets them at all, and they always feel kinda stiff, both of which are new problems i've never dealt with before the last two months. so, i'm hoping a soak in this new detergent and using it on all my laundry will do the trick! i really want to get excited about cloth diapering again since we've got #2 on the way, but the stink and stain issues are starting to get me down. i find myself reaching for disposables about half the time, which is not good for our budget!

just wanted to update that i'm loving this detergent! i did an overnight soak of all my diapers in the bathtub with hot water and a couple spoonfuls of ecosprout, then rinsed them four times in the washer, then a normal wash (hot with 2 cold rinses and just 1 TBL of detergent), and line-dried in the sun. they look and feel like new diapers! so soft, clean, and no trace of stench. and DS has been wearing them today and there's no ammonia smell when he pees! i'm now using ecosprout on all our laundry to make sure i don't get any buildup on my diapers, and with our soft water, 1 TBL per load is all i need!
