I think I am doing laundry wrong. Hope me?

I have noticed that after being washed for a few months or so all my clothes begin to go stiff, especially t-shirts. I miss having soft clothes. What am I doing wrong?

Relevant info: I live in London and the water is hard. I use powder detergent and fabric softener in the amounts recommended on the boxes/bottles or slightly less, and I air-dry the clothes on a maiden/airer/clothes-horse/what-have-you indoors. I usually wash at 40 degrees. I don't iron. I have a washer-dryer and rarely use the dryer. Air-drying outside is not an option. Help? Is this a hard water thing? Do I need to soak everything in vinegar?
