Dealing with Laundry Issues

If you have hard water in your home, chances are you are scrubbing mineral deposits off your sinks, showers, or faucets. 

You may not think about how hard water affects your laundry. Even if you are using a laundry detergent with built-in water softeners, your laundry will still suffer.

You may notice that some articles of clothing, even after laundering, still look dingy. Clean laundry may even have an unpleasant odor. This is because as mineral deposits build, they trap bacteria. That buildup leads to odor issues. The mineral deposits can also irritate some people’s more sensitive skin. 

Hard water deposits also affect the absorbency of towels. When hard water traps residue, it can hold on to detergent like it does everything else and release residual suds. What you’re actually seeing is the effect of hard water on the fabric. If the fabric is retaining detergent residue, it’s also retaining bacteria, even after washing.
