Exclamation HELP!! HELP!!! repelling

Okay we moved to England a while back. My second son was just born. We are using mostly FB's for him....

Our water has LOTS of lime in it. So, some of my dipes are starting to repell.

I never had to deal with this with my first son...we didn't have hard water in Missouri!'

What do I do? I also can't really get any good detergent here, so I haven't been using any. About once a week I use baking soda for the smell.

HELP HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

See if you can find a liquid or powder water softener in the laundry section of the market. US brands are Calgon and Borax. If you add this to the wash, it will help break up the minerals in the water, so they do not adhere to the diapers. I hope you find something that works for you.

Do they have sportwash over in the UK?
They must have some dish detergent that'd work just aswell as the 'Dawn' or 'Sun' here, no?

Sorry I'm no real help!
