If you have soft water, count yourself lucky. While there’s some evidence that drinking harder water is better for your health, you want to wash your laundry (and your body) in soft water.
Soft water is water with a low concentration of calcium and magnesium, as well as other harsh elements. It feels slippery and lathers easily. You also won’t see mineral deposits on your pots and pans.
Its opposite, hard water, deposits those minerals in your pipes, on your cookware, and in your washing machine. This “scale formation” creates blockages in your pipes and machine that reduces their efficiency.
If you have soft water, you definitely don’t need to use harsh chemical detergents. Since there aren’t any minerals to interact with the cleaning agents, the soft water cleans better, even on a cold setting. Even more, if you have soft water, you can usually use less soap than the manufacturer recommends. You can also reduce or even remove fabric softeners from your routine.
We know that people with soft water and people with hard water have different laundry needs. That’s why we’ve developed special formulas for each type.
