"Hard Water" is a term used to describe water that contains high concentrations of dissolved minerals. Usually, Calcium and Magnesium. This is the reason most homes end up with "Lime Scale" on the Faucets, Sinks, Countertops, Shower Heads, etc.
You may also notice your hair isn't quite as soft as it should be. When you wash your hands and rinse, you'll notice the soap is quickly removed and your hands are "squeaky" clean. That is because your pores have been filled with those contaminants and you are left with a residue. The silky feeling you get with a Softener is actually your body's natural essential oils. Your skin is able to breathe and stay SMOOTH.
