What part of the State you live in?
Florida has that sulfur smell and it hard to wash out.

RE: Need Some Help

If you're on well water, you may need to have your water treated/purified.
My town in Upper NY is on well and treated.
My brother in the next major town over is on well too, but he had to have a water treatment installed on his line and water is good to drink and wash with.

Find out from your municipality if the water is treated!

You are between a rock and a hard place.
For right now you can add Borax and 1/2 cup of ammonia with your detergent to cut the sulfur/musty smell.

Others will chime in on what to do!
