Hi Im new to cloth diapering. Im rather excited to make the switch and after a week I reget not doing so for my older children. My only problem is I have a HE front load washer w/ hard water...EEEKS I have a bit of a hard time getting the amonia smell out. I use a dry pail system. I had purchased a OXi-boost powder detergent and only use about a 1/4c. per load. I do light load on cold(rinse) and then wash on Hot/cold cycle...I also do an extra rinse. Any advice here? I hung them in the sun today and it helped a bit... I was just wondering if anyone out there has a solution for hard water? Im weary of using vinegar as I have pocket diapers and gDiapers with prefolds...(ps i love both really) Thanks any advice would be great!!!!
