When we first started using cloth diapers, we used Rockin' Green, and loved everything except for the price. We switched to Tide, and then to Persil, but I was never quite satisfied with the smell - I'm someone who's quite sensitive to fragrances and I generally don't like the smell of detergent.
Enter bclean.co's SOFT. It did everything RGDD did, except it also made my diapers SOFT! We aren't in the habit of using softeners here, so when our diapers got crunchy, I figured it's probably just the fibres opening up and becoming more absorbent. But when we started using SOFT, I noticed the diapers getting softer and nicer to touch. (Most of our stash are fitteds, whereas previously I was using cotton prefolds - I did notice that with our cotton prefolds, the difference is less noticeable. But still a difference!) We also used it on our clothes-only loads, and it kept the fabrics velvety soft and light to wear.
I also experimented with dosage, to see how far we could save and stretch the detergent for more cost savings. For a while, I did 1/3 scoop prewashes and 3/4 scoop main washes on an 8kg LG front loader. The detergent is really quite effective - the picture below shows a Before and After prewash only on a poopy diaper, and most of the stains were gone, without adding any Vanish/booster! Sadly, while the stains were gone, after a while I noticed a phantom poop smell so we decided to go back to Clean Cloth Nappies' recommended dosage of 1 scoop for main washes and 1/2 scoop for prewashes. That said, you might be able to get away with 1/3 scoop prewashes, depending on the soiling of your diapers, especially if you are in the habit of doing 60 degree washes (we are, as we are slightly more paranoid about night diapers).
To increase cost-savings, if I were to purchase this detergent again, I would probably use it for main washes only. I figure it doesn't make sense to have softeners in your prewash, and if you're sensitive to smell like me, you could still prewash with one of the more mainstream detergents and then use this for your main wash, which would maximise the impact of softeners and keep the diapers/clothes soft when you wear them.
