Stuck Toilet Flapper

Whenever we flush our toilet, the flapper on the flush valve stays up (rather than falling and plugging the hole so the tank will fill again). We have tried cleaning up the flapper (we have hard water so the flapper gets kind of mucky sometimes), but that does not seem to have done the trick. The flapper is not cracked and works fine if you manually force it down after releasing the water from the tank. Does anyone know what might be causing the flapper to be stuck in its upright position after flushing?
