For most, bathing in soft water can be a relaxing experience. A long soak in a warm tub can be the perfect end to a stressful day, a way to relax your muscles after a tough workout or a method to warming up your body after being out in the cold.
While essential oils, bath salts or bath gels are typically used as a way to soften skin, there may be something preventing these things from bubbling and doing their job – your hard water!
If you find yourself pouring more bath gel into your tub in order to get the adequate amount of bubbles, you’re not alone! An overwhelming 85 percent of the US has hard water, so the likelihood that you live in a state or city with hard water is high. Not only can hard water start costing you more, but it can also contribute to dry skin, razor burn and clogged pores.
When you have hard water, calcium and magnesium react negatively with the ingredients in your products, such as bath gels, leaving fewer bubbles in your tub.
There are a variety of quick fixes you can try to get your bubbles back, but the problem will never be solved completely until you get a proper water softener.
A water softener will not only generate more bubbles, but will maintain the softness of your water throughout the day and night. Hard water can stain your toilets, sinks and water-using appliances as well generate scale in your plumbing and pipes. This slows the performance of water in your home.
