Re: Washing routine-What's wrong with mine?

I could probably bleach less often really (I missed several loads a while back and they still smelled fine with just gain) but I am afraid to ruin a good thing. I think cottonbabies recommends 1/4 cup bleach monthly as well, I know I got the idea from a manufacturer.
I have hard water too....and I always had soft water when cloth diapering before. I bet that might be the problem! I'll try tide.
