Hard Water, Soft Water, What Kind of Water?
Since we have well water, it's safe to assume that the water is hard. What is hard water? It's water from the ground and it has minerals like calcium, sodium and magnesium among others. Soft water has been stripped of this minerals and the only thing left is sodium. It has been found that there is less cardiovascular disease in areas where water has the most mineral content. Soft water though is best for doing household chores like washing clothes and cleaning. It also makes soap and shampoo lather better leaving your hair looking healthier and not dull and your glasses sparkle. So if you live in an area with hard water, you can use water softeners.
