I agree with Nonipie re: changing detergents. I would bleach it all again, then try something different. Like many mamas on here, I swear by Tide. The HE liquid is what works well for my super-sensitive DS. OP, your diapers aren't ruined but what you're doing isn't getting them clean. I would strongly suggest trying mainstream detergent before you give up.

Re: Possible to actually *ruin* diapers??

When you moved, did the type of water change??
The Green Mountain Diapers has a great how-to booklet you can request free when ordering. It talks about diapers at laundry mats, water ph, stink, rashes... I've clothed diapered for 4 yrs and last night learned a lot from the GMD how to booklet. Good luck.

switching back to charlie's after using RnG won't necessarily get the residue out. i highly recommend RLR. i washed those diapers with my regular detergent, stripped with calgon, and did a dozen hot washes/extra rinses - and still had problems until i stripped with RLR. we have very hard water here and i'm convinced the RnG reacted with the hard water to leave a residue that my hard water couldn't rinse out on its own.
