Soft Water ‘Can Benefit Your Personal Grooming’

If you are researching water softeners for your Henley property, you are probably already aware of the benefits of soft water for your plumbing and appliances, but what about you and your family?

According to Live Strong, the advantages of soft water extend much further than reduced limescale and better dishwasher performance, because soft water can in fact be beneficial to your cleaning and grooming habits.

The minerals in hard water play havoc with regular cleaning tasks.

The University of Nebraska told Live Strong that when soap and hard water combine, they create ‘soap curd’, which is a sticky substance that can be difficult to shift if a residue forms.

Soap curd residue can prevent the skin from returning to normal condition, leading to dryness and irritation, while a build-up in hair causes dullness and can make it hard to manage.

As water softeners use salt to remove minerals such as magnesium and calcium through ion exchange, soft water contains none of the minerals that combine to make soap curd, making bathing and cleaning easier.

So how does your water softener work? The system is designed to remove the minerals forming scale and scum from your water and are installed at the point the water supply enters the property to treat the whole house.

The benefits include removing limescale, reducing the amount you spend on detergent and soap, and preventing the build-up of limescale in your hot water system and around your taps.

We have a range of top-quality water softening products on offer. For help and advice get in touch with our experts.
