Do you often notice that soaps, shampoo, and detergents don’t lather as much as they should? Hard water could be the main culprit to this reason. Hard water is high in mineral content, such as calcium and magnesium carbonates, bicarbonates & sulphates. It forms when water percolates through mineral deposits increasing its mineral content.
Hard water can not only make lathering of soaps, shampoo, and detergents difficult; it also gets deposited in pipes & on taps, tiles, and floors. Additionally, hard water can also be detrimental to hair and skin. However, KENT has a solution with its range of Water Softeners that convert hard water to soft water, making it suitable for domestic use.
How do you lathering soap in hard water?
If you often wonder, why is my soap not lathering, the answer could be something as simple as the quantity of minerals in your water supply. Hard water contains a high concentration of dissolved minerals, which react with soap to form scum. To create lather in hard water, you need to exert more effort and use more soap. It increases expenditure on cleaning products such as soaps, shampoos, and detergents in the long run. It is due to this reason that softening the hard water, with a water softener such as KENT Bathroom Water Softener is a good solution.
Why does my homemade soap not lather?
If your homemade soap is not lathering as expected, there may be a few reasons behind it. Firstly, it’s important to consider the quality of the ingredients used to make the soap. Using low-quality oils or lye can affect the soap’s ability to lather properly. Secondly, the soap-making process could be a factor. If the soap was not mixed thoroughly or was not allowed enough time to cure, it may not lather properly. Additionally, hard water can affect soap lathering. Hard water contains minerals that can react with soap and form a scum that prevents it from lathering. In this case, using a water softener or adding an acid like citric acid to the soap recipe can help improve lathering. Finally, if the soap contains additives like honey or milk, they can affect lathering as well. It’s important to experiment with different soap-making techniques and ingredients to determine the cause of the problem and improve the lathering performance of the soap.
What are the benefits of using a Water Softener?
A water softener offers many benefits when it comes to making hard water usable for household chores and cleaning. A water softener is an appliance that converts hard water to soft water using an ion exchange process. It is beneficial for your appliances, taps, and pipes as it reduces the deposition of minerals onto these surfaces. Soft water also prevents hair loss, itching, and dryness of the scalp. It reduces excessive consumption of soap & shampoo, prevents the scaling & corrosion of appliances, and improves the life of internal parts of appliances. All these features make water softeners a must-have in your house.
What is the technology used in Water Softener?
Water Softeners, such as the KENT Bathroom Water Softener uses an Ion-Exchange process to reduce the hardness of water by exchanging magnesium and calcium with sodium or potassium ions. This process softens the water making it suitable for easy lathering with soaps and other household chores.
Water Softeners require regeneration when all the available sodium ions have been replaced with magnesium and calcium ions. In KENT Bathroom Water Softener there is an easy non-electric regeneration procedure. 880 grams of table salt needs to be added to the brine chamber, and then fill the brine chamber with water. As KENT Bathroom Water Softener has a high 5.50 litres resin volume, it requires regeneration after 1500 litres of water usage if the TDS level is 500ppm and water hardness is 200ppm.
If your area receives a hard water supply, you need not worry about its impact on your hair & skin, appliances, taps, tiles, shampoo & soap consumption. Install a reliable and trustworthy Water Softener for your requirements so that you have access to soft water.
