When clothes are being washed in hard water, minerals are left and deposited in the fabric; causing an overall fading of colour and increased tears in the fabrics fibre. The minerals in the hard water hinders the laundry’s process by the detergent not being able to fully mix in the water. Soap scum is left on the clothes as a streaky, chalky substance.
Nevertheless, when clothes are washed in softened water; the soap scum is removed.
The minerals of calcium and magnesium which hinders the process of laundry is vanished by softened water. Thus, clothes will stay rich in colour and vibrant for a longer period of time.
Investing in water softening for your laundry cuts your costs in the long run. A reduce of costs are seen through:
1- Less money being spent on detergents.
2- Clothes are maintained and worn for a longer period of time.
3- Washing machine, lasts longer and less maintenance is needed.
