Firstly you need to find the reason why your fish are getting ick, check the parameters of your tank ie. ammonia/nitrite/nitrate as this could be a cause of stress in the tank. Also look to see if you have anything in the tank that is harrassing your fish as this will stress them as well and could be the reason for your continual outbreak of "ick".
If you don't want to put medication in your tank due to your clown loaches you could try raising the temperature of your aquarium to 86 degress, do this slowly as a sudden increase will stress them as well.

ICK is apparently caused by STRESS. Like Terry, said do your water checks and watchout for bullying among the fishes. Also check the the tank itself is not disturbed too often.
