This was a GREAT tip, thanks Darshani!!

I live in the Chicago area and have water that isn't too hard and isn't too soft, but my hemp was getting so STINKY! I did a long cold wash, adding a cap and a half of Calgon liquid water softener to the beginning of the wash cycle (no detergent, nothing else). Didn't even see many suds in the machine, so I proceeded with my usual hot cycle with half the usual detergent, then on to the dryer. Oh, my, I couldn't believe how soft my (DS's?) dipes are now! And the stinky hemp problem is gone!

Rather than using this every wash (since it is expensive), I plan to use this stripping routine every few weeks as necessary, and hopefully it will continue to work for us!
