: Hi, I have hard water and have thought of using borax with my diapers to soften the water. Is this OK to use?
: TIA, Joy
We have hard water too, and recently i've been trying about a tbsp. of baking soda in the fabric softener dispenser (front loading HE machine). It's been working great! Everything is much softer now. I no longer use Bounce sheets too, which i was worried were creating a film in my dryer, hence transferring to the diapers and causing buildup issues. Anyways, just an idea that's worked for us.
