Re: Who's found their tried and true wash routine??

Ugh! I'm trying to find a good system.
I thought I had one but now having stink issues. I always dunk poopy diapers right away but any diaper that my 2yo or 3yo mess in takes forever to get clean. I've been using prefolds more with them since they seem to not have the stink problems that my fitteds have.
We have very,very hard water and an HE FL as well. I've been using Allens naturally with some bac out but am going to try the Tide HE soap soon. Right now I do a cold rinse (sometimes twice), Hot wash/Cold rinse with soap and bac out, Warm wash, warm rinse with nothing and then sometimes still have to run another rinse.
I'm really hoping we can pick up a cheapo top-load this summer and hook it up so I can use it just for diapers. Right now I do a load everyday which since it takes soooo long puts me behind on the rest of the laundry.
Hopefully I'll get the figured out soon.

Where do you gals find the Calgon?
