Sooo glad it's working for everyone!! I've started using it with my clothes and everything's looking brighter!

My calgon wash routine is (diapers) is:

soak/prewash on cold with 1/4 cup detergent (using same water for both cycles)
hot wash with 1/4 cup calgon, then cold rinse with Downy Advanced

Seems to be working great!

Hey! This stuff is great. It finally broke down the repellancy of my FB's after the MoE treatment and Sportswash had both failed. THe FB's were actually working quite well despite the repellancy, but they would leak occasionally. Now if I pour water on them and touch the tops of the water beads to break the surface tension, it soaks right in. Before, no amount of poking or prodding would get the water through (it's a miracle they still worked as well as they did). We'll see if the hemp is less stinky in the morning too. Thanks for the tip, Darshani
