Laundry Tip for Hard Water

If you don't have a water softener installed in your house or apartment, you're likely noticing the effects of hard water, especially at this time of year. The calcium and magnesium in the water can reduce the effectiveness of detergents, build up on your clothes and inside the washing machine, leave a film on your glassware and dishes, and leave your skin rough and dry.
