4 Tips to Use Soft Water Efficiently

Let’s see — you’ve taken the plunge and purchased a water softener for your home already. Great! So, that means you must be operating at maximum efficiency, right? Maybe, but if you’re not following these five soft water usage tips, you certainly have some more room to grow!

    1. Say sayonara to detergent-fortified soaps. These harsh chemicals are formulated to cut through the residual minerals found in hard water, so they’re not necessary if your water is soft. Instead, go pure — with dye- and perfume-free soaps all around.


    1. Cut your soap usage down to size. We already know that soft water makes soap lather and rinse away more easily. So, it only makes sense to cut your pre-softener soap usage down. We recommend slashing soap usage in half to start.


    1. Put down the fabric softener. Just like detergent, fabric softener was produced to combat hard water problems that cause stiffness and fading. With soft water, you can ditch the fabric softener all together and still get the same results.


  1. Don’t waste soft water outside. Soft water is great for a number of things, but using it over hard to water your lawn and garden really makes no difference. Instead, give your softener a break and put the system in bypass before tackling any outdoor duties.

Kinetico is an essential part of my home because I care about my health.  Kinetico K5 drinking system removes 99% of contaminants, including chlorine, out of my drinking water.  Not only can I taste the difference, but I feel good knowing that I am only consuming clean pure water.  When you have kinetico, less plastic water bottles are used, which is beneficial to our environment.
