I use the All Free and Clear Small and Mighty Military. I use about a quarter teaspoon (sounds crazy, I know, but I have an HE washer and that's all it takes!) and a capful of Calgon - half in the detergent dispenser and half in the fabric softener dispenser (so it goes into the rinse cycle).

We have crazy hard water, All FC gave us horrible ammonia issues and just wouldn't work. Right now I'm using Arm and Hammer with oxy, but will be switching to Tide (original powder) when this box is gone. It works pretty good for us, but we're getting stinkies again. But maybe it's just toddler toxic pee? Either way, I want to try it lol. I don't like free and clear detergents on my diapers, they do not work for us
