Washing Cloth Diapers - Water Hardness
Then check out this wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hard_water to translate the numbers to a category of hardness.
In Durham our water was considered 'soft' as it measured in at under 60 mg/L. Here in Orange we now have very 'very hard' water measuring in at ~300 mg/L!! No wonder we needed to change our routine!!
Consider Padded Tush Stat's article on making your own detergent based on your water type. Also consider checking them out for all the great diaper reviews and 'stats' on cloth diaper related questions!!
