What Does Hard Water Do to Your Clothes?
Don’t you just love how soft and bright your clothes look and feel when you pull them out of the dryer? Well, if you have hard water in your home, you might not get those newly-laundered happy vibes. In fact, your clothes may even look and feel a little worse coming out than they did going in!
That’s because minerals in hard water like magnesium and calcium can cling to clothing, discoloring lighter clothing, muting the colors of bright clothing, and making the fabric feel stiff. Over time, as your clothing goes through the hard water soaking again and again, its colors will fade faster, and white colored clothing could actually turn a bit yellow! Basically, your clothes will wear out faster, and soon you’ll be saying goodbye to your favorite white t-shirt!
