I tried what the article said. I am sorry to inform you that it didn't work. It is so frustrating. We live in a small trailer park. We all feed from the same well. But, nobody else is having this problem. Could it be that everyone else has a water softener? We are the only ones that don't. We have only lived here for 6 months. We didn't start having this problem until 2 days ago. The water is really bad here, so we can't cook, wash clothes, etc. Which makes it really difficult, we are a family of 6. If you could help at all, please let us know. Thank you so much for your time.
