Hard Water, Scratchy Towels, Ariel.. Help Please?
So we have relatively hard water here, Its around 16 according to the water quality report.
Our clothing and towels are not soft. And after reading around these forums a bit and doing a few searches I've come to the conclusion that it's the water hardness and my poor choice in detergents.
I went out and found Ariel and it has the tag with a warning saying that it has Sodium Phosphate in it, I'm hoping it's the correct one.
It says to use 250ml in laundry (about a cup), I was reading that In hard water you have to increase the detergent amount too? I have a really basic TL washer and no idea how much of the detergent I should be using.
I have been adding Vinegar to the rinse and I really am not noticing a difference. Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated I'm pretty lost. Im sick of the state of our clothes (especially our towels but I've noticed the clothes are bad too )
If it was an option I would go get a water softener but we rent an apartment so it's not doable right now.
