Dear Home-Ec 101,So I found your article looking because that some principles for managing our tough water problems here in Florida. I’m in school for biomed engineering so ns appreciated the explanations friend gave. I have a question and also thought through your background you could know the answer, or know which direction to point me in.

My inquiry is, what would certainly the best profile that the water it is in pH, hardiness, complete alkalinity or buffering, etc…? I would assume a pretty neutral pH and also low together I can get hardness concentrations, however in mine experiments v a full bath tub and blended water, soap and softening agent’s, ns seem to always be commerce one appropriate at the cost of another. Borax and also washing soda soften the water great, but I do notice the pH rises pretty high.

Vinegar brings the pH down, however at that point laundry has turned into a chem lab. I’d welcome any kind of advise or insight on the chemistry that would or wouldn’t it is in beneficial.Signed,Al Kaline
