PEE-EEWWW!! We just moved and have hard water until the softener is installed. I have only washed the dipes twice here and they already STINK!
I'm using the same wash routine - cold soak/rinse, hot wash with 1/4 deter, 2 extra rinses. I haven't changed anything. Should I be using more detergent in hard water? Less? Help!! It's SO disgusting!!

Hard water is such a joy!!
: Not.

I have 2 strategies for dealing with reeky hemp dipes here in my hard/well water home. I sometimes do a cold soak with Amaze, which is a stain/odour remover for baby stuff and cloth diapers (but you can only get it here in Canada). I'm sure there's something comparable in the US. The other thing I do is add TTO to my wash, which has helped IMMENSELY.
The occasional adding of Calgon to strip out suds seems to help too.
Good luck!
