Hardness of Water in India
Article added 2 years ago (May 23, 2012)
It is important to know if you live in a hard, medium or soft water area since this determines what dosage of washing detergent you should use.
What is Hard Water?
Hard water is water which contains dissolved calcium and magnesium salts.You can know if you have hard water by these signs:
- Your water tastes salty
- There are white deposits on your utensils, taps and drains. You notice a “ring around your bath tub”
- Soaps and shampoos do not lather easily
- Stain removal is difficult
- Fabrics feel stiff, not fluffy
More than 75% of India is affected by ‘moderately hard’ to ‘very hard’ water.
You need to use a higher dosage of detergent in hard water areas to maintain cleaning performance and avoid the build-up of dirt and hard water deposits in your machine.
Refer our Dosing Guide on specific dosage instructions for soft and hard water conditions.
