How a whole house water softener makes your clothes last longer
Doing laundry is a chore that never seems to end. Every day the piles of laundry don’t seem to go down, if anything, it’s ever-growing. This problem is magnified if you’ve got a growing family. Now you’re washing your kid’s clothes as well as any fabrics they use such as towels and sheets. But before you pull all your hair out, let’s go over why having a whole house water softener will make laundry life easier and help your clothes last longer.
If you weren’t too sure why the clothes you’re washing weren’t as vibrant as the day you bought them, the answer might surprise you. It’s not the detergent you’re using, no, it’s the water. Yes, the water. Depending on where you live, the water that comes into your home will be hard. This means the water has a high amount of dissolved calcium and magnesium. When hard water interacts with your clothes and detergent, minerals end up bonding to the fabric. Which leaves a dull film on your clothes. It’s similar to the inside of a used tea kettle, you’ll notice rings of calcium build up along the walls from the water. That’s exactly what’s happening to your clothes.
So what can you do to remedy this problem? You’ll need a water softener, but not just your run off the mill type.
