Ever notice those unsightly hard water stains on your windows, shower doors and even on your fixtures? Hard water stains can be hard on everyone – and everything. So here’s what you need to know about hard water stains.
What are hard water stains?
Hard water is a term used for water that has a high amount of minerals in it. While all water starts out “soft,” it gathers minerals like calcium and magnesium as it travels through streams and across rocks. These minerals won’t harm you, but they do make a difference in how water acts – particularly on your windows and other glass.
How do hard water stains affect me?
You may think that a few harmless minerals in your water is no big deal, but hard water can be pretty annoying – and create a lot of work for you. Hard water stains or spots, which are really just sediment left from the minerals once the water evaporates, can create spots on dishes, stains on windows and leaves a gross and unsightly film on tile and grout. Hard water doesn’t leave you alone either. You may experience drier skin and hair and have a harder time feeling “clean” after you shower if you have hard water. Your appliances don’t like it any better either – those mineral deposits can do some serious damage to washing machines and dishwashers.
Different parts of the country get different water. This is obvious, since all localities get their water from different sources. Your area may have harder water than your sister’s and vice versa. Sure, you can soften water you use in the house, but outside water – like the kind you use for your lawn, likely won’t be softened. And you’ll probably notice the effects of that hard water all over your windows.
