Hard water contains natural minerals like calcium and magnesium. Those minerals can interfere with soaps and detergents, and can leave behind a scummy residue.
If you have hard water in your home, you may notice that white soap scum on your bathroom fixtures. Hard water can leave deposits, which can build up and clog your plumbing and your shower head.
That same soap scum can also build up on your skin which may cause some skin irritation.
The minerals in hard water can strip moisture from your skin while preventing the natural oils your body produces from doing their job.
If you are experiencing the negative effects of hard water; don’t worry – there’s a potential solution.
Installing a water softener and using Diamond Crystal® water softener salt in your home may help. Soft water is better for cleaning. That goes for your clothes and dishes as well as your skin.
Soft water makes it easier to form a lather, and it makes it easier to rinse the soap away. That means your soap works more efficiently.
