Re: Poo AND detergent smell ugh!!!
If your diapers smell of detergent, poo, or muskiness, then they're not getting clean. I would also make sure that you're rinsing the dipes completely, especially since there's a water softener. We have softer water, and I ALWAYS need to run a full cycle without detergent at the end as an extra rinse. Check the washer when it's full of water during that final rinse and see if there's any bubbles. If so, you need to keep rinsing. You don't have to do it in the washer, your tub will work for the final rinse.
