Easy tips to make hard water soft

How to soften hard water

Hard water does not lather easily and it also forms a scum which stains the dishes and clothes.

If you would want to soften your hard water, try out these simple tips:

Boiling

This method works if the water has temporary hardness. Put in a pot and let it boil. When it reaches the boiling point, let it cool. You will notice the impurities settling down at the bottom of the pot. Once the water is cool, strain the impurities with a cloth and you will be left with soft water.

Vinegar

Vinegar is another method to make your water soft. You can, however, use this method only for laundry and dish washing purposes. To ensure your clothes are not stained with the minerals from hard water, add a cup of white vinegar to your rinsing water. Do the same while washing your dishes.

Baking soda

Although baking soda does not filter out the impurities in hard water, it makes it soft for touch and laundry purposes. Besides making the water soft, baking soda has abrasive effects that will also leave your clothes cleaner. Mix your laundry water with baking soda before you start cleaning.
