This isn't necessarily so. There's a lot of bad info out there against cd safe detergents.

I have a lot of success with Country Save, all over the country with hard and soft water. I've tried all the mainstream detergents and they all fail eventually.

I've also read big cautions against vinegar in hard water. It's good for dishes but apparently encourages minerals to precipitate out and deposit in cloth? I'm not sure I understand the process but it's bad.
