How do you battle hard water with your dipes and other clothes?

A good water softener, change filters often, and I use calgon in my rinse cycle every so often. No issues so far!

Finding the right detergent and using enough of it is the key.

Re: hard water
detergent (many with hard water have to use more than normal detergent) and a good water softener (Calgon seems to be the highest recommended softener from people with hard water).

There is some interesting information on pinstripes and polkadots' website here:

I live in a hard water area too. I installed water softener system. It works very well.
