HARD AND SOFT WATER:
If you have a ‘HARD WATER’ supply, it means the water contains dissolved compounds such as calcium, magnesium, sulphates, chlorides and iron. Untreated water is likely to be a lot harder. This means that when the water is added to the soap, there will be little to no lather depending on the amount of compounds present.
If you live in an urban or developed area you are likely to have access to a treated water supply- which has been stripped of all these compounds and only contains sodium (hence the not so nice taste to town water!). This water is called ‘SOFT WATER’ and will cause soap to lather up beautifully when water is added, tank water is also likely to be soft water as rain is naturally soft to begin with.
If you do have a hard water supply the cleaning effectiveness of our soap may not be as good as it would be in soft water. However leaving the product on for around 5-10 minutes before rinsing and doing a second wash should remedy this problem.
