Hard watet

I live in El Paso TX and we have really hard water. I also have HE agitator free washer. In the past i have known people to use small amounts of borax or homemade detergent on cd. But when i brought this up on a fb page in our area you would have thought i was committing a mortal sin. I bought Kawaii and Sunbaby diapers for my 15 month old. What should I use to wash them?

Re: Hard watet

In my experience with semi-hard water if you add some Super Washing Soda (found in the laundry aisle) to your wash with whatever other detergent you want to use your diapers with still come out clean. I use Tide original and haven't had any mineral buildup with my diapers.

Re: Hard watet

I have Texas hard water and use Rockin Green, both Hard Rock and Classic. When I use the classic formula I sometimes add a bit of Calgon, but not always. So far (fingers crossed) it's been trouble-free!
