Water goes through intense processes of water softening treatment that converts hard water into soft water by lessening the concentration of calcium, ion and magnesium in it. Since hard water is not suitable for domestic as well as industrial purposes, it is better to soften the hard water otherwise it would be of no use.
Let us now discuss about some of the benefits that are provided by the water softening processes to the society at large.
(a) The hard water if used for washing the hair or cleaning the skin, then it can damage the skin to a great extent. So it is better to get water softened before applying on skin. The soft water does no damage on the skin; in fact it is always to be ensured that the water is softened before you use it.
(b) Soft water does not damage the utensils. When appliances are usually washed with the hard water, it does affect the condition of them by staining them. So you can protect your appliances by using the soft water.
(c) Soap and detergent easily get dissolved in the soft water whereas the soap particles do not get easily washed away by the hard water. The soap particles stain the clothes.
(d) It feels very soft and clean when soft water is used.
So soft water is always beneficial to use. Soft water is also used for cleansing stuff properly compared to the hard water which is always hard on stain removal.
