Help Me!

Okay so I have cloth diapered two all the way to potty training, then #3 came along and things just have not worked out. Different washer/dryer, moved 3 times, different water at each place, postpartum depression, it's been a mess. But now I have a little guy who has another year in diapers and I really want to get him back in cloth. He's been in cloth here and there but the past four months 100% sposies.

We use 100% cotton prefolds or BGEs.
My old routine that never failed me was rinse, wash Charlie's Soap, rinse vinegar. Occasionally I would use a little bleach in the wash and then double rinse.
(We had well water then and an awesome clothesline in full sun)
Now we have had treated water from three different providers.
I have tried no vinegar, oxyclean, sun, original Tide. I tried washing my machine out because someone gave it to us and I wasn't sure what was in it. My regular laundry is having some issues as well. There is just a musty smell in there.
Anyway, we still have strong ammonia stink, and every time I put him in cloth he gets the kind of rash that welps his skin within 2 hours.

He also gets this rash if I put him in less expensive disposables, but it takes a little longer, usually a couple of days.

I feel like I have ruined my diapers trying so many different things. I am tired of buying disposables. I am tired of looking at my cloth diapers on a shelf.

Anyone have any advice to get me back on track?

Thanks for reading my novel!
