I am so frustrated with Tide lately. It would be great if I could just use the liquid since I get it often for our clothes. We go between Tide and Gain and sometimes I get arm & hammer if its on sale.
But the poopy diapers I swear smell like they haven't been washed at all
That's odd. Could it be the washer? I mean, like the filter is clogged or it needs to be cleaned? I'm trying to think of everything. I adore arm and hammer as well! I just get more coupons with sales for the tide. The gain is supposed to be just a more scented version of tide. It's the same company. Are you getting enough suds though? It just sounds like not enough detergent if the softner isn't working, even with the calgon. I know you can use less detergnet with calgon. That stinks you can't see when it's not.

Have you tried working something like the enzyme cleaner I spoke about or bleach to help with the bacteria?
