If you are curious about water softeners, but you’re not sure if you need one or not – well you do. Water softeners have a lot of benefits that will save you time, money, and make you feel your best.
We moved from a home that didn’t have a water softener, to one that did – and I can’t even begin to tell you what a huge difference it makes in every day living from cleaner hair to better coffee!
Hair & Skin. Soft water is wayy better for your hair and skin than hard water. Hard water can cause mineral build-up on your body, which causes interference with soap so you don’t get as clean – not to mention its a lot nicer to shower in.
Appliances Last a Lot Longer. Hard water can be rough on your appliances. Hard water forms deposits on the inside of your appliances like your washer, dishwasher, and anywhere you use it. The deposits clog up your appliances and causes them to break down; when you use a water softening system it extends the life of your appliances (which means you aren’t replacing them as often). It also prevents limescale from building up on your shower head and faucets.
Clothes Stay Newer Longer. You’re clothes get the same effect as your skin does when you continuously use hard water. Without a water softening system your clothes will be stiff and dingy.
Energy Saving. Hard water makes your water heater work harder (just like your appliances) A new softener can actually pay for itself in energy savings cost since your hot water heater isn’t working as hard!
Your Dishes Get Cleaner. Hard water can cause your dishes and glasses to be spotty or cloudy – a simple switch to soft water can make your dishes cleaner and spotless!
I picked up a bag of Morton Salt at Walmart, and it’s a perfect salt to use in your water softener.

I just moved into a new apartment and I don’t think it has a water softener. I feel really gritty when I get out of the shower and I don’t like how the water tastes. I like how you point out that soft water is way better for your hair and skin than hard water is. I bet once I change to soft water, I will be able to see and feel the differences even when I take a shower!
