Re: HELP! Major repelling issue & I can't make it go away!!! :(

I have a front loader and really hard water too. When the dipes are not behaving I put them in for a hot prewash with nothing added and then an extra long hot/cold cycle(no additives). Then I run them on a regular hot/cold cycle(no additives). It seems to kick the repelling prob. I just switched to cheapo sun detergent, seems to be working better. I also have noticed I needed to add more detergent, I was using maybe a tablespoon before. Now I put in about a third of the cap. Hard water seems to require more detergent.
Use fleece liners with your dipes, or try an olive oil based salve for diaper rash.
