There is nothing like a long, leisurely soak in a luxurious hot bath to soothe away the stresses of the day – that is, until your bathroom slime (aka soap scum and scale) starts to take over your tub.
Bathtubs, faucets and showers are magnets for mildew, soap scum, grime, scale, and stubborn stains. Hard water minerals such as calcium and magnesium can react negatively with ingredients in your bathroom hardware, so if you are living with hard water, you are probably being haunted by stubborn soap scum or scale in your bath tub and shower.
While there are great temporary fixes for this buildup, including vinegar, chemicals, and fabric softener sheets, you’ll spend less time and money on harsh chemicals and scrubbing scale away by solving the core problem with a more environmentally friendly water softener.
A water softener provides a permanent solution to hard water scale. Installing a water softener system in your home’s basement or garage removes hard water minerals from your water before it flows to your pipes and fixtures, reducing scale buildup. You can purchase a water softener at any big box store and install it yourself with a little plumbing know-how.
