Today we celebrate the earth, and of course, the need to protect our environment for future generations. Speaking of those generations, ever notice how many clothes they leave us to wash? In another part of our water softener series for Earth Day, it is important to mention the three environmental (and $$$ saving!!) reasons for using a water softener with a washing machine.
- Less laundry soap. With soft water, only 50% of the detergent was needed to yield the same stain removal results compared to hard water, similar to that of Des Moines.
- No need to heat the water. With soft water, cold water yielded the same stain removal results compared to hard water, similar to that of Des Moines.
- Then, there is the appliance aspect. A washing machine was operated for 240 complete cycles with softened water and showed no signs of scale buildup. A washing machine using hard water showed scale & deposit buildup that needed to be cleaned in order to function properly.
Water Softening allows us to use of less detergent, save energy by lowering water temperatures & increase the longevity of your clothes washer. What is not to love about this? Everyone needs a water softener!!
